The Zentraedi are a race of Near-human clones, created by the Robotech Masters from Tirolian stock, first as miners, then as warriors. Traditional Zentraedi life is strictly segregated by sex, with female Zentraedi having their own separate units and command structures, and only their top officers interacting with males, while only top males would interact with females. All Zentradei are extremely limited of technical ability; a conditioned programmed into them by the Robotech Masters. Their equipment is designed to be simple to maintain and long-lasting, forcing Zentradei to rely on Tirolian scientists and droids for repair and resupply.
One of the most striking aspects of the Zentradei physiology their extreme height, with an average height of 10 meters, and a range of about 8-12 meters; truly enormous Zentraedi may be upwards of 15 meters. There are alchemical processes that will allow a Zentraedi to shrink down to roughly human size (1.5m-2.3m), and these have gained popularity as interaction with Aeolians and Tirolians has increased after the so-called "Robotech Wars."
Zentradei are divided into two main castes, soldier and officer, with female Zentradei being different in their castes than the males are in their. In addition to those main castes, there is a top caste, entirely male, of the "High Command"; larger, stronger, and smarter than their lessers, full-size Zentraedi High Command have been known to resist vacuum in nothing but a uniform.
After the Robotech Wars, traditional Zentraedi social structures largely broke down. While some Zentraedi live full-sized in traditional units, others have migrated to more Aeolian family structures, reproducing and bearing children naturally as "Micronians", as they refer to more standard-sized creatures. They are close enough to Aeolians and Tirolians that such mixed couples will still produce offspring.

Skill Requirement: Zentraedi begin with 2D in Firearms, Brawling, and Starship Gunnery. Otherwise, they have 4D in skills to distribute.
Skill Limits: Beginning Zentraedi may not place any pips or dice in Technical skills.
Scale Change: Standard sized Zentraedi are approximately 10m tall, and considered Starfighter scale. By undergoing a day-long Micronization process, they may become Character scale, with identical attributes. When they are Starfighter scale, adjust their Strength for the purposes of Lifting, Stamina, and damage by the Starfighter scale modifier. The Micronization process may be reversed by a similar day-long process.
