Martians are primitive but intelligent humanoids who lived beneath the sands of Mars. Martians burst into flames when brought in contact with water.[1] Martians killed many of the early human explorers on Mars, principally because they concealed their existence, and they weren't suspected.[2]

The Martians were wiped out when Jack Brennan caused an ice asteroid to crash into the surface of Mars, raising the average humidity of the atmosphere.[3] Some Martians still exist on the "Map of Mars" on the Ringworld.[4]
