The Player is the entity that represents the current player. The Player is approximately 6 feet tall, similar to average height in the western world today.
The Player can choose from one of the seven playable races: Humans, Apex, Avians, Floran, Glitch, Hylotl, or Novakid. Race will not affect player stats, but will change the visual representation of the character and objects they craft.
Many of the Player's characteristics can be altered, including his/her clothes, hair, personality (stance), among others. A reproduction of the character creator has been added to the forums (forum account required). This character creator however does not have as many characteristics options, as the actual in-game one will have (to date).
