Abstract: The notion of a complex - Riemannian $ n$-manifold, meaning a complex $ n$-manifold with a nondegenerate complex quadratic form on each tangent space which varies holomorphically from point to point, is briefly developed. It is shown that, provided $ n \geqslant 4$, every such manifold locally arises canonically as the moduli space of all quadrics of a fixed normal-bundle type in an associated space of complex null geodesies. This relationship between local geometry and global complex analysis is stable under deformations.
