Phibians are a genetically-engineered humanoid sub-race race first mentioned in Chapterhouse: Dune. They are primitive humanoid fish creatures brought as captives to the "million planets" by the Honored Matres , much as the felinoid Futars were. They appear in Hunters of Dune. Phibians are genetically wrought humanoids, a mingling of human and fish with a limited capacity for intelligence and vocabulary. Created out in The Scattering , they have bullet-shaped heads, with lean and streamlined bodies taller than humans, and slick green skin that 'shines with oily iridescence'.
