Lati (echinatus sapiens)

These 1.5 meter tall hedgehogs have a culture reminiscent of the ancient Roman Empire of Earth. Possibly the most bureaucratic beings in the universe, the lati are also amazing engineers. They are in high demand on many planets for their ability to organize and enhance existing infrastructures. It is a cruel irony that the lati are virtually unable to speak any language other than their own. They are as capable as any species of understanding any given language, but their vocal structure does not allow them to form to sounds needed to speak with others as readily.

(can do many things at once, natural calculators, hedgehog like, 7 fingers and a thumb on each hand and foot, poor vision, clicking language, have hard time speaking other languages, bureaucrats and engineers)
