Makyans (Makyo-seijin), also referred to as the Serpent race in the English dub, are the natives of the Makyo Star.
Features of Makyans vary, but of their most common traits are pointed ears and fangs. They have a natural transformation which causes extreme growth of the body and an increase in strength, seen in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone and the Garlic Jr. Saga. Though it is unknown if this is common among the species, all the Makyans that appear in the series are evil and violent.
At some point, Garlic's ancestors came to Earth, and Garlic eventually competed with the Nameless Namekian for guardianship of the planet, but was denied the position by former guardian due to his evil ambitions for the Earth, which eventually led to him attempting to take the position by force and being sealed up for the remainder of his life. Garlic Jr. emerged a few hundred years later and twice attempted to avenge his father by killing Kami and fulfilling his father's dark dreams of ruling the Earth, only to find himself trapped inside the Dead Zone both times.
The whereabouts of any other survivors of the Star's destruction is unknown.
