Species


Humans

Home Planet: Earth
Average Lifespan: 115-150 Years
Average Height: 1.7 – 1.8 meters (males)
1.6 to 1.7 meters (females)

Description: After the institution of a unified government, Humans began to place their efforts into the conservation of their home world. Cleaner power sources were found, and resources were mined on distant planets. Newer, more efficient cities were built, while preserving historic landmarks.

Over time, Earth’s human population grew to over 20 billion, causing the cost of living on the planet to rise. Many humans instead opted to live on distant, more affordable colonies. All this has caused the human population to spread across the habitable parts of the galaxy, and they continue to outnumber any other dominant species.


Azatoth

Home Planet: Asura
Average Lifespan: 300-350 Years
Average Height: 1.8 – 2.2 meters (males)
1.7 to 1.9 meters (females)

Description: The Azatoth are a humanoid species from the planet Asura located in the Sun-Tau System. Planet Asura is primarily covered by vast regions of dense forests, linked together by rivers and surrounded by oceans.

The Azatoth are a proud species of warriors, scholars and artisans who have built their society on a foundation of traditional values. Their futures are decided at a young age, as all children must undergo a rite of passage (a test of wits, survival, and knowledge) before they can pursue their desired career. Upon completion, the children are given their first individual marking about the right eye, signifying their initiation into adulthood. Any other markings are optional, usually given after an Azatoth has served in the military for a given amount of time. For males, five years of military service is mandatory, for females it is voluntary.

Vareliens

Home Planet: Varel
Average Lifespan: 600-700 Years
Average Height: 1.8 – 1.9 meters (males)
1.7 to 1.8 meters (females)

Description: Vareliens are a humanoid species originating from the planet Varel in the Juno constellation. Their home world is a beautiful blue planet, it has a very limited amount of land which is surrounded by vast oceans. Vareliens are a peaceful race, and value a high quality of life above all else.

They are exceptionally intelligent and have made incredible advances in technology, in particular space travel. This has made them invaluable to the dominating Azatoth and Human forces. The Varelien people provide limited access to their technology for the security of having their home world maintain a neutral stance in the war.

Shintari

Home Planet: Astria
Average Lifespan: 60-70 Years
Average Height: 1.5 – 1.6 meters (males)
1.5 to 1.6 meters (females)

Description: The Shintari are a humanoid species from the planet Astria in the Kronos system, and are the closest sentient life to Earth’s solar system. While the species has the disadvantage of a short lifespan, they have managed to make some great strides in the field of medicine. Their home world (which is covered in rain forests, rivers and oceans) contains a substantial amount of effective natural remedies.

Unfortunately for the Shintari, being so close to Earth has caused them to be caught in the middle of human expansion. Nearly a century ago, Earth seized control of their planet, and continue to exploit the species for their resources and labor. Many Shintari have since fled their home world, and can be found in numerous regions of the galaxy.
