Records from their earliest histories, approximately 3,500 years ago show periods of social unrest, conflict and violence. Something that they managed to completely eliminate around 3,000 years ago.


There government consists of a senior council with 15 members. Each of these individuals serves as one of 15 individuals within the next lower level of government. The senior council co-ordinates the efforts and assignments of the lower 15 councils and the individual sent to the senior council meetings is often a different individual from meeting to meeting as all are considered to be equal.


This humanoid species is unique in the fact that they have 15 eyes, 14 of which are the same size and then the central eye is double the size. These eyes are all pure black. Mostly due to the development of their multiple eyes and vision their skull has an unusual shape being that of a valentine heart shape.

They have a thick, tough gray epidermis with just a hint of blue undertones in it that is incredibly wrinkled near and around their eyes. Their lips are bluish in color. They tend to be between 5'6" and 6' tall and the vast majority of their species are slim and for the most part fit.

It is almost impossible to tell the males from the females just by looking at them or listening to them talk. Both sexes wear the exact same kind of clothes, robes that hang down to just below their knees and leave their arms exposed.


As with most intelligent humanoid species they have a very complex system with specialized organs, and unique hormones, chemicals and enzymes. They are typical humanoids with most of the physical, mental and biological medical problems that seem to plague most humanoids.

Due to the brightness and high levels of various different types of solar radiation they have developed a thick, protective epidermis that protects them from sunburns and other hazardous skin afflictions caused by exposure to this kind of solar energy. Their vision is also highly developed, allowing them to see various different aspects of their environment that would normally only be possible with the use of highly advanced technological devices.

Their sense of taste is almost none existent and most things tend to taste the same to them. Only very strong tastes like sour, sweet or hot can be recognized but are only mild to them.


As a species they tend to be very reserved and conservative in nature and while they are no where near as emotionless as the Vulcans they seem to never show these emotions in front of strangers or individuals who are not members of their direct family.


They believe that Jzza lives within their sun. A being of vast power, creator of their world and the universe around them. He is depicted as a faintly humanoid shape made up of living fire with a single vast blue pulsing eye in the center of his forehead.


They have a number of creation myths that all resolve around Jzza creating the universe, growing tired of the constant work and finally creating their system and their sun as a fitting place to retire, to relax and recharge his power. Their are also stories that the massive solar flares that frequently explode from the surface of their sun are signs of his moving around within their sun.


They are a species where everyone is equal, where all can access any and all of the medical, educational, recreational and nutritional services which provide ample resources to any and all of their population. Work is assigned to those who need it based on their abilities and capabilities. Everyone does their part to make their society function as best that it can and most of them also seem to live a live of minimalist needs, content to own very little.


Most of the arts seem to be ignored except for music which can be found playing softly in the background almost everywhere. All of their music is instrumental and tend to have a central strong beat, one that determines the rhythm and pace of the tune being played.


All members of their population unless prevented for some reason will greet the rising sun or bid it good night at sundown by facing it and waiting for it to rise above the horizon or drop below it.


They have no transporters, replicators, holographic, defensive or offensive technology of any kind. Other than that they seem to be about 100 years behind the Federation.


They have very little off world trade as they are very self sufficient. One of the main contributing factors to this is the almost universal minimalist lifestyle that they all seem to enjoy. This also means that any goods and services are provided to anyone who needs it when ever they need it. As a result their are no transactions of any kind and the majority of their population has no understanding or a need to understand trade, bargaining or economics.


They have absolutely no military forces, not even a police force as crime is virtually unknown on their world. What they do have are emergency response personnel who act as a kind of modified blended paramedic, fireman, universal emergency situation teams that respond to any and all emergencies.
