The Hurctarians are a species of bipedal humanoids that inhabit the galaxy.
The Hurctarians are a species common to the wider galaxy, and are members, or at least play a more citizen-based role, of the Nova Empire, as a family of Hurctarians was present on Xandar during Ronan the Accuser's attack.
Ego planted one of his seeds one of the planet inhabited by the Hurctarians, Arago-7, in order to absorb it in his galactic Expansion, using the combined powers of his son Peter Quill and his own. The expansion of Ego's bio-mass caused havoc and the deaths of many Hurctarians, but it was eventually stopped when Ego was killed by the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Hurctarians are bipedal beings with a human-like body structure, but physical similarities between them and humans end there. The Hurctarians have brown wrinkly skin, pointy ears, four fingers, and cybernetic scalp implants in the place of hair.
