Hermites are a race of 4' tall, terrestrial crustaceoids with conical shells that make their total heights between 6'-9'.  A shy, reserved, and deeply spiritual people, they avoid strangers, and do most of their trading via proxies.

Hermites are far more agile than they appear, and gain +2 to all martial Attack Rolls.

They also possess the bizarre ability to transform solid metal into an aqueous state with a touch.  This works against metallic weapons, armor/shielding, and objects of 50 lbs or less.  (Interestingly, copper is unaffected.)  Hermites utilize the resulting liquids in highly alcoholic ales renowned—and coveted—throughout the Mutant Future.

Mutations:  Natural Armor (Extreme) (x2), Unique Mutation ("Aqua-Touch")
