Martians are people born on Mars.

Dusters is a pejorative term for Martians.

Martians and Earthers are both called Inners, because they come from the inner planets of the Sol system.

Physically distinctive traits[]

With Mars' gravity only 1/3 as strong as Earth's, Martians tend to be taller than Earthers, although usually less so than Belters. Because of the lower gravity, there is some overlap between Martians and Belters in term of physical appearance, and certain Martians can pass for Belters due to their similar physiology. As a result, these Martians tend to face less discrimination than Earthers in Belter-dominated societies.

To compensate for the low-g, Martian Marines train in full-g to achieve parity with their Earth counterparts.
