This is the exact same post as the above.
(Save that the model is rotated 180 degrees in Y and has a negative X scale for you to see this side of the [color=white]Frant)[/color]
—> Reference Text (From Page 165):
[color=silver]It stood about seven feet high, skinny, narrow head like a sidewise board with two jutting and unblinking eyes regarding him calmly. Its two long arms emerged from the torso well below where the shoulders should have been and were covered with something similar to the foil ration packets. The legs were short and powerful looking. Its skin was smooth and reflectivenot shiny or slimy, but polished like old wood.
—> Reference Text (From Page 208):
[color=silver]A tall creature with a head almost as narrow as a board and jutting eyes rose from behind the ceiling. Its shoulders were wrapped in silvery fabric; otherwise it wore nothing. Its skin was smooth as fine leather and just as brown.
—> Reference Text (From Page 209):
[color=silver]The Frant shook its head solemnly. “Please don’t be frightened,” it said, its voice like a large bird’s, low and warbling.
—> Reference Text (From Page 210):
[color=silver]The narrow-headed, knock-kneed brown Frant climbed farther back through the whiteness and nestled into its own couch.
—> Reference Text (From Page 224):
[color=silver]She looked to the rear and saw the flat-headed, knock-kneed brown creature curled in its own berth, watching her with calm, slowly blinking eyes.[/color]
“Hello,” it said musically.
—> Reference Text (From Page 254):
[color=silver]The Frant peered down at her, its large brown eyes unblinking. It held out one hand, spread its four slender fingers and curled them again. “Please,” it said, its voice like a badly tuned calliope. “I cannot help.”
—> Reference Text (From Page 374):
[color=silver]The Frant’s wide-extended eyes seemed to naturally convey humor and good spirits. Though she found the word guest euphemistic, at best, she did not resent the Frant’s using it.
