The Races of TSODR
Below are a list of current alien races and their place in the series.
Space Dragon empire, Draconizica: an ancient empire born during the first years of the universe, they have grown into an intelligent race, being able to construct cities, ships, weapons and methods of transportation. They have many species, including bipedal dragons that are able to stand upright. They take interest in science and experimentation and have countless planets under their control. They are docile, calm, and nice; unlike their rivals, the Crotonians. To recuperate from the war with the Crotonians, A small squadron of their empire sought Earth during it’s Pre-Cambrian era and settled down (despite the extreme heat and tectonic activity). Since then, they have been a regular part of Earth society, but have refrained from using their advanced technology. The Earth dragons still keep in touch with the main empire. They have eight main languages, but the most studied by humans is: Hynnody, Drakener, Ususos, and the CVL (Computer Variables, also called Numbers Language, which is used only for dragon-made computers). They prefer to keep a race alive once they claim it and occasionally mix their race with the ones they’ve taken. The name of their Earth empire is Antonin.
Crotonians: they were created sometime after the Dragons. They are an advanced alien empire of insectoids with many breeds. They are cruel and merciless, but to each other they are caring and loving. The Higher-Up Crotonians are controlled by a single brain insect that serves as Queen of the empire. When a new Queen is needed, she must pass a treacherous mind-game. Their homeworld is full of dome hives and spire towers, which serve as homes. The Queen’s Hive, also called the Queen’s Tower, is the largest spire on the planet and is crawling with guards, male drones and automatic hover-turrets. The dragon empire visited their homeworld and attempted to rule their race, but the Crotonians fought back. When the dragon shipmaster Kyine visited the Crotonian queen to speak negotiations, they both ended up killed and a war had ensued. When the Crotonians found Earth sometime after the Dragons got to it, they created their own Earth Empire and gave it the name Lucerano.
Tyto Albians (Owl Shifters): It’s not clear when they were created, but they were in alliance with Antonin. The descendants of the Tytos carry the bloodline of the Owl Gods, and sometimes they can be cruel and unforgiving. There are many Tyto-shifters running the political scene for the good fight, like Firucana Badocelli and the Duke of Bracknell. The lands under their rule include some parts of France, Berlin, some parts of Africa and half of India. They can shift to human and owl at will, like the other two aforementioned races. They are the creators of the Dark Redfire superowl soldier. “Carpe Diem Tyto” is their Third Dynasty tagline.
CICADA GODS: Very little is known about them. They have no current-generation shifter descendants and are loved by the Dragons. Their Third Dynasty tagline is “Cicala di Italia,” and they come out every Undysummer to mate. There has been only one ruler throughout the history of the Cicadas. They tend to keep to themselves and not bout over power. The only Cicada leader was Julius Xanthar, the ONLY cicada with a human shifter form. He led a small army to a forest island to claim it for his cicadas sometime in the early years of Earth. Since then they have expanded and increased in numbers, but are once again decreasing due to deforestation of their habitats.
ALMA MATERS: the age-old society of Alma Maters disappeared long ago. They were humanoid beings that come in many ethnicities and nationalities. They are often called “The First Humans” and some speculate they created the dragons, although that’s not true. They were the first to initiate the Unity of Three in hopes of quelling the fighting between the Dragons and the Crotonians. Alma Maters were curious godlike beings, and they tried to “tame” Draconizican Dragons, thinking they were wild and feral and non-intelligent. Most believe this lead to their downfall. Alma Maters made sure they left their mark by placing spires and other constructs on various planets. These constructs also serve as communication towers so any surviving Almas would be able to contact the Goddess for help.
Cyber Faeries: Cyber Faes are a mixture of Faerie blood and Black Technology. They command computers, control anything with the soul of Technology, they can link up and see through security cameras, and they are linked to the Draconizica Dragons. The main purpose of a Cyber Fae is to guard a Dragonshrine from unwanted intruders. In Lindendale, they guard the outer city gates from intruders. At one point, Lucerano successfully implanted a virus into the Cyber Fae species, causing them to malfunction. Thiris, a Fae in charge of a Dragonshrine, had massacred the whole crew of the USS Sherona during her time aboard the ship. Cyber Faes are considered extremely dangerous.
Traditional Faerie: Born from Dragon and Crotonian blood, the Faeries left the empires from which they were born to meld their own. They held small communities in two respective countries: Mesoamerica and Africa. They can communicate with their Fae King through a mind link and are natural masters of White Technology. Fairies tend to possess psychic powers and a few Fae societies are hidden in forests throughout the world.
Andris Vampora (Android Vampire): During Perch Tech’s early days, one of their first experiments was on vampires from a small greenhouse colony on Venus. Unlike their fully humanoid cousins, Android Vampires rely on a motorized heart to operate and need constant blood and use preservatives and ice to reserve their blood.
