A number of bizarre and sometimes ancient races are known to dwell within the seldom traversed core of the Thundercloud Galaxy. Some of these are silicon based, others are purely spectral, among the very few carbon based races located there, however, is the Sagorian race.
The Sagorians are a unique people, especially when compared to those common throughout the Three Galaxies. They do not need to breathe, eat, drink, or sleep on a regular basis - subsisting almost entirely upon the radiation of suns. They retain the vestigial capacity to breathe but it is used almost exclusively for speech. They also have the capacity to eat and drink small amounts, but do not need to do this more than one or two large meals per month. At puberty all members of their species get an abnormal craving for the poisonous mineral rich waters of the underground streams common on their world. It is this instinctive thirst that actually drives a feature of their maturity in which their bone structure literally becomes plated in a form of molecularly collapsed iron.
In general physiology the Sagorians appear very much like an extremely tall and stocky human. Unlike humans, however, the males and females of their race exhibit slightly different features. While both bear tough hides the two exhibit different skin tones entirely - the males sport brilliant sky blue skin and the females feature violet skin. This skin, in conjunction with their metallic bone structure, is incredibly resistant to damage, so much so that any damaged incurred through heat, cold, and most forms of energy is negligible. Another interesting feature to their physiology is that as a race they have developed remarkable psychic abilities. Both sexes are capable of two modes of psychic flight, one a slow speed form of flight for traveling brief distances, and the other - the ability to plot and make brief FTL jumps! The females, however, exhibit far more psychic abilities than the males. Beyond the ability to fly, they also possess additional psychic abilities - roughly in league with the Earthly Mind Melter! These abilities combined mean that the Sagorian race is one of the few in the Three Galaxies that can naturally traverse the stars.
Culturally speaking, a modern Sagorian would have a lot of trouble relating to those of ancient times. Traditionally, the Sagorian people were a very savage and barbaric warrior race, and established no structured civilization of their own - not even tribal. It was anarchy and chaotic thus few records remain of this age, save the belief that their people originated on Sagoria Prime. (It is not surprising, however, that carbon dating of the earliest remains found on their world only date back between fifty-five and sixty thousand years.) It was the arrival of the Bearian people, some twenty thousand years prior, that changed all of that. The Bearians offered their people a different lifestyle to the one they were accustomed to, with a structured heirarchy, technology beyond their wildest dreams, and introduced magic. In return, these stocky bear-like humanoids were permitted to terra-form Sagoria Prime as their new home world. Over the ages since, the two races have become symbiotes of one another. The Sagorians relying upon the Bearians for their technology and magic influences, and the Bearians relying upon the Sagorians as shock-troops, laborers, and for their psychic abilities. While now largely 'civilized', the Sagorians still consider themselves a warrior race, and can be prone to solving their disputes more with action than with words. (The males are more likely to take this approach than the females.)
The largest concentration of Sagorians is on Sagoria Prime and on the surrounding 36 planets of their dual star system, however, they can be found on occasion just about anywhere. The Sagorians are a naturally restless race, so it is not unusual to find them at the far corners of the Three Galaxies piddling around, working to repair star ships, as mercenaries, and as galactic tracers. Some ship crews refuse to share bunks with Sagorians because of their inhuman abilities. Due to their method of survival, their blood is naturally radioactive thanks to gamma radiation emitted by the suns they feed off of.
As a race, their current agenda is a sort of non-intervention policy regarding the powers of the Three Galaxies, but they are ever watchful for any alien power entering the Three Galaxies that begins to bully the existing powers. Right now, the foremost thing on their agenda, is investigating the presense of the Intruders, and determining if they are indeed a threat to the Three Galaxies.Sagorian R.C.C.
