They are a native species of theIberia Galaxy and modern descendants of the great ancient Axon civilization. They have somehow preserved part of their ancient technology although many items remain forgotten. They adapted pretty well to their native planet's ecosystem, the planet Yako after the crumbling of the Axon civilization.
They live in a small nation that controls just around 10% of the Iberia Galaxy. It is in good terms with its neighbors, the Empire of Mankind and the Intergalactic Federation. They have few contact with the Aldorians, since they are located far into the other side of the Galaxy. They have been contacted many times by the Gunxiva to join their war against the extragalactic invaders.
The Yakon have a space civilization with three dozen colonized planets and around a some thousands systems under their control. Their total population is estimated to be around 300 Trillion. Important communities live in the United Alliance, such as those living in Kreon, where around 34 trillion are set to live.
They have six limbs, four of whom serve as their feet, while two of them as well as a torso have remained in order to allow them access to food sources, and visibility in the large herb plains and sabanas of their native Yako. They have preserved their harsh crust and skin, that prevents any predator from eating them or at least makes it harder for them. Their upper limbs makes them easier to access threes and other high foods that grow on top of bushes, rocks etc..
their tall stature allows to see over the savannah tall herbs, in order to see any predators that may come around looking for them. Also their four legs allow them to run more in order to cope up with the fast predators of Yako.
They mate and reproduce through a dual male/female system. The males have a darker skin tone, while the females have a lighter one. They have a white bellies and a pattern on their backs, that is unique in each individual. During reproduction season, the pattern become lighter in males and females, indicating their fertile status and predisposition.
Offspring remain with the mother until sexual maturity at 5 years of Age, in which they quit the side of their mother but remain in their group. They are born in pairs, a male and a female. However, in rare occasions two males and two females are born. Ever more strange is the birth of a lonely offspring, and when this happens it is considered almost sacred and this individuals are set to be appointed as priests or religious leaders.
