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 of, or at least play a more citizen-based role in, the Nova Empire, as a family of Hurctarians was present on Xandar during Ronan the Accuser's attack.
Ego planted one of his seeds in one of the planets 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. They have brown wrinkly skin, pointy ears, four fingers, and cybernetic scalp implants in the place of hair.
