Mutant Species

Additionally, many Human mutant species have evolved over their time within the galaxy, adapting to new home-worlds and evolving offshoots in their small corner of the galaxy. Due to Humanity being spread over so many different worlds and evolving secluded from one another, there are a great number of mutant varieties of Humans within the galaxy.

Examples of this include the world of Fasia, which is uniquely home to several mutant species such as the Elaven, the Qar-Qar, Dwanvo and others. Other worlds, such as Cicero, are home to the Frugis, a species of humanity that evolved for incredibly cold conditions. There are also some mutant species which are granted special abilities due to the anomalous properties of Verpletter - The Magi from the Cosmic Commonwealth of the Magocracy evolved psychokinetic abilities that vary from world to world which they refer to as Magic, whereas the Pyros of the Pyros Hegemony became a pyrokinetic people.

The causes for such dramatic evolutionary paths is something that many scientists have been seeking to explain, but so far there are only anecdotal explanations unique to individual worlds, and not a broader explanation.

Native Species Of Verpletter

Despite being a dwarf galaxy, and the near dominance of Humanity, there are hundreds of alien species within the Verpletter Galaxy.

Note : Affiliation typically refers to the home-world and the broader species as a whole. Individuals and possibly whole colonies may have a separate affiliation to other factions or stay independent .

The Deciarchy Of The Overlord

Non-Native Species Of Verpletter

"Outside of Verpletter's native population, there were others there during the Seal-Off - The visitors from other galaxies. The most obvious were the Humans, who would later shape the very face of Verpletter. And then you had all the Mutant offshoots that would arise in the next few millennia. But to assume that Humans were the only ones poking their noses into the business of the small dwarf Galaxy would be an immense misunderstanding of the geopolitics of that place at large."

There are a few dozen species in Verpletter which are not native to the galaxy. Regardless, they have developed within Verpletter after the galaxy was separated from the rest of the universe, and have set up within the galaxy, regardless of if species still exists in the wider universe.

This refers to species that did not originate in Verpletter - This means sub-species that evolved in Verpletter are not counted as Native species due to their extra-galactic origins.

Note : Affiliation typically refers to the settled world and the broader species as a whole. Individuals and possibly whole colonies may have a separate affiliation to other factions or stay independent.

Species Settled World Description Affiliation
Humans Various Humans are from Earth, in the Via Sagittaria.

They are one of the most prosperous species within Verpletter in spite of being foreign to it. Many of the factions within Verpletter have huge Human populations, or are run by Humans outright.

They tend to be an immensely diverse species in nearly all respects, including the values that they hold. Some seek to protect as much life as is possible, regardless of if it is human, or if it is even sentient. Others care very little for this, seeking only to benefit themselves, or their Faction at large. It is impossible to tell what values a Human holds by simply looking at them or the tendencies of their species.

Various

If they master a craft, they will learn another. The more Crafts a person has, the more worthy of respect they are.

They are famous for their abilities to construct huge sub-surface cities. In modern space-faring times, they have found another field of expertise - Star-ship contribution. They share their home-world with a number of sentient sub-species.

The Commune Federation

While proud, they are not arrogant, and are still valuable contributors to the Commune Federation.

The Commune Federation
Aquasi Fasia The Aquasi are a sub-species of humans that developed gills and webbed fingers and feet, allowing them to breathe underwater and swim effectively while submerged. They are also capable of breathing on land, allowing them access to nearly all the land of their home-world.

The Aquasi are a species which puts a lot of value on artistic expression and aesthetics, and produces a great number of artisans. They are one of the largest cultural exporters from Fasia, and it is often thought that it is largely their works that make Fasia such an enticing world to visit for those within the Federation.

Their cities are often considered the most beautiful in Fasia.

The Commune Federation
Sürunen Fasia The Sürunen are a Human sub-species that developed a reptilian appearance as they survived in the deserts of Fasia. They are the most noticeable deviation of all the sub-species of Fasia due to their reptilian adaptations.

The Sürunen also controlled the largest amount of land, (Not counting the Aquasi, who had vast underwater territories) claiming an entire continent-wide desert as their own. They had a House based system, which often managed one aspect of society - The House of Trade would handle matters of trade, for instance.

The Commune Federation
Yettar Hadasamui The Yettar are a Human mutant sub-species from the frozen tundra world Hadasamui. Unlike the Frugis of Cicero, the world is kept in perpetual darkness, and is overwhelmingly cold. Due to this, the Yettar evolved to be far more hairy than regular Humans, making them resemble Yeti's from Earths ancient mythology.

The Yettar have been subjected to multiple invasions of their home-world ever since they landed after the Seal-Off of Verpletter. This made them very suspicious of any outsiders who tried to make contact with them. They were brought into the Commune Federation by the Frugis, due to their similar environments, needs to evolve, and shared genetic history.

That have been valuable in the settling of ice worlds, and in communicating with other isolationist species. They have been able to bring several isolationists out of their self imposed isolationism, and create alliances, or even join with the Commune Federation.

The Commune Federation
Empatehr Aesyure The Empatehr are a fur-covered, bovine-like species which has settled the ice-cold planet Aesyure.

They joined The Commune Federation not long after the Casorians, seeking the protection of the Federation. They have contributed immensely in the fields of xeno-science and advanced various technologies forward.

The Commune Federation
Magi Various The Magi are a Human mutant sub-species that have formed on various worlds near the center of the Verpletter galaxy. They have not deviated much from the physical appearance of Humans whatsoever.

It is however, their mental abilities which have evolved. The Magi have developed various psychokinetic abilities that allow them to perform various abilities by utilizing their newfound powers. they refer to this ability as Magic.

The Magi tend to develop different psychokinetic abilities depending on which star-system they are located within. One, for example, may allow the Magi to develop pyrokinetic abilities, while the other may allow them to freeze water vapour in the air, making them cryokinetic.

Cosmic Commonwealth of the Magocracy
Pyros Pyro The Pyros Are a Human mutant subspecies which had developed chalk-black skin, and the ability to generate and resist fire. They are a pyrokinetic species and the sole dominant species of the Pyros Hegemony.

The Pyros have a childish mentality, often seeing conquest and territorial expansion as little more than a game to be played. This is not the universal attitude, but many interactions with Pyros leave mental psychologists estimating that they do not seem to have the mental capacity beyond that of fifteen years of age at the most.

The Pyros Hegemony

Forces of Nature

"You have to admire the average Verpletteri - On top of constant conflict, ideological warfare, complex networks of alliances, outside influences, hostile worlds and who knows what else - On top of everything, they have Forces of Nature that can be just as deadly as any sentient life-form - And they still carry on, and keep fighting to uphold their values. I can think of a dozen galaxy spanning nations that would crumble under that sort of pressure, but they just refuse to give up their values. I'm amazed that their galaxy isn't just on constant fire."

Due to the nature of Verpletter, and it's overabundance of life, there are some alien species which can only be classified as a 'Force of Nature' - Species that tend to cause intense damage to the native population. The open hostility that these creatures might have for sentient life varies from species to species, with some openly seeking to destroy any sentient life they come across, while some cause harm to sentients entirely by accident and unawareness.

Some Forces of Nature species can actually be beneficial to sentients who manage to utilize them correctly, though this can often be a considerable effort for little proportionate gain.

Togis Rays

Togis Rays are huge manta-ray like creatures that possess a red complexion, and feed off of void ecologies - Ecosystems that create themselves around asteroid belts and the rings that surround planets. they release a spore which allows for the creation of more void ecologies in the places that they visit, allowing them to create more food sources for themselves as they travel.

Togis Rays are a peaceful Force of Nature, but have been known to batter entire fleets without meaning to. The average Togis ray is about one-fourth the size of Luna, and fleets of them can be visible from the surface of whatever worlds they travel past. The Commune Federation has been able to tame many Togis Rays, whom now fly alongside their fleets.

Gygas-Gycar

The Gygas-Gycar are an unknown, unseen telepathic species that reside in the Klystruck Nebula, capable of transmitting their thoughts over thousands of light years. What they want and how they intend to acquire it has not been made clear to any Faction within Verpletter, but it is clear that the species has an interest in spaceships, not seeming to understand why sentient beings need to use them to travel through space. They have managed to convince many crews into committing suicide by persuading them they too did not need a spaceship to survive.

The Gygas-Gycar have been marked as a Force of Nature until first contact procedures can be officially made, and the subject of why they are so interested in spacecraft has remained unsolved as of yet.

The Kara

The Kara are a species of suspect sentience, whom are driven by a compulsion to engage in immense conflict and violence. Xenobiologists have suggested that the species seems to be capable of asexual reproduction, simply duplicating itself ten times once every three days. This meant that worlds that are attacked by them constantly face the threat of a growing horde of Kara whom seek only to batter them into oblivion. Kara are located throughout Verpletter, and have been a thorn in the side of a great number of Factions.
