Professor Uptrobar - A member of the Unioc race. (Older Member of the Race)

The Unioc are a race of one-eyed aliens in the Schlock Mercenary universe. Unioc body structure is broadly similar to a humans, with the primary differences being three-fingered hands and the single eye. A Unioc's brain is located in it's pelvic cradle, and it's single eye is roughly the size of a human head. Uniocs have better eyesight than humans; the long focal length of the eye lets them see microscopic details, (such as a nanny-cam floating in the eye of a reporter) and they can gauge distance quite accurately by rapidly shifting focus. They don't benefit from stereoptic parallax, but their enormous eye provides a long focal length. They perceive depth quite accurately by shifting focus.[1] The only Unioc on the Toughs roster is Ebbirnoth, who joined up at Ghanj-Rho and has since been promoted to Lieutenant.
