Lendrin males stand over two meters tall. Their eyes are silver and a single frontal ridge protrudes from the brow, curving downward around the eyes. There are no eyebrows. Scores of faint spots adorn nose and cheeks and the mouth is comparatively small. Lendrin hands feature six fingers.
Lendrin children spent the first year after birth in a small pouch attached to their mother's abdomen. Physical contact with anyone but the mother cause the infants to die. Until the children are old enough to begin school, they still have to be nourished by their mothers' bodies. Women with children close in age form small groups at that time. (VOY novel: Children of the Storm)
The reproduction ties Lendrin children to their mother, preventing interaction with their fathers for years. Couples usually reunite only after the offspring begins attending school.
