Low Light Vision:Litorians can see twice as far as humans in conditions od dim-light.
Scent: Litorians have the scent special ability. This extraordinary ability lets a creature detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell.
A creature with the scent ability can detect opponents by sense of smell, generally within 30 feet. If the opponent is upwind, the range is 60 feet. If it is downwind, the range is 15 feet. Strong scents, such as smoke or rotting garbage, can be detected at twice the ranges noted above. Overpowering scents, such as skunk musk or troglodyte stench, can be detected at three times these ranges.
The creature detects another creature's presence but not its specific location. Noting the direction of the scent is a move action. If the creature moves within 5 feet (1 square) of the scent's source, the creature can pinpoint the area that the source occupies, even if it cannot be seen.
A creature with the Survival skill and the scent ability can follow tracks by smell, making a Survival check to find or follow a track. A creature with the scent ability can attempt to follow tracks using Survival untrained. The typical DC for a fresh trail is 10. The DC increases or decreases depending on how strong the quarry's odor is, the number of creatures, and the age of the trail. For each hour that the trail is cold, the DC increases by 2. The ability otherwise follows the rules for the Survival skill in regards to tracking. Creatures tracking by scent ignore the effects of surface conditions and poor visibility.
Creatures with the scent ability can identify familiar odors just as humans do familiar sights.
Water, particularly running water, ruins a trail for air-breathing creatures. Water-breathing creatures that have the scent ability, however, can use it in the water easily.
False, powerful odors can easily mask other scents. The presence of such an odor completely spoils the ability to properly detect or identify creatures, and the base Survival DC to track becomes 20 rather than 1

Hatred with Ancient Enmity
Hear now the secret history of the modern world. In the last days of World War 2 an advanced reconcisance squad breached German lines and secured the equipment of a Nazi project known as Kreigsgott and its chief scientist Dr. Erdel. Dr. Erdel had found a unique cosmic resonance in a mysterious artifact that would allow teleportation across planetary distances, specifically to Mars.
In the late 40s and early 50s this technology was perfected in the US as part of Project Ares. By 1952 America sent its first manned expidition to another world. Soon after a base was established contact with the unexpected natives began.
The Maritans were a psychic and communal race, with little thoughts of individuality. They were curious and physcially and mentally adaptive. What were once ill defined morphous forms became green men and women, and as is so often the case the explorers infected the natives. Not with a disease, but with ideas.
Mental contact with the humans drove the Martians insane. Individuallity led to factionallism and factionallism led to war. The war ravaged the planet and soon Project Ares was recalled, but not before they had scavaged and harvest the Martian biomass for their own experiments.
Today men and women across the globe are the willing and unwitting recipients of Martian genes and grafts. They have created psychics and self healing warriors and shape changing spies. They are slowly infilitrating the goverments and intellifence agencies of the world.
They think they know everything, they do not. They missed something on Mars.
A single Martian. A Maritan infected with human ideas of individuallity, freedom, responcibility, and one other thing.
The Manhunter is coming.
