Joum are vaguely humanoid. They stand around 7 feet tall.
Joum are omnivorous, but they relish fruit and flowers. As they do not have mouths, food is ingested through two feeding organs on the head.
Joum live in groups led by an alpha male.
Joum are quite intelligent. They will build nests out of sticks and leaves for the night using their hands, and have even been seen using tools.It is thought they may soon develop sapience (albeit primitive), making them the only terunes, and in fact any species on Kaventro, to do so.
