I'm very interested in this, I might have a sheet up later tonight.
So if I'm correct, the sheet should have the description of the character, their race and their powers?

Just a reminder that I am slow-as-molasses. I expect no rush from any of you because I demonstrate no consistency, myself. ^.^;

-The Dragx-
The Dragx hail from Nexrith as the alpha predator. They have evolved to be faster, stronger, and deadlier than that which already live in one of the most hostile and deadly planet in the system (I actually don't know how large this RP's universe is gonna be so expect changes). Social wise, the Dragx are very primitive with most Dragxes living in small tribes and only a few, around 1 out of every 20, Dragxes ever leaving the planet, let alone meeting another sentient (non-edible) species. The Dragx also do not possess any clothing, seeing the pieces of cloth as a hindrance to their movement. Because of this, the Dragxes are rightly viewed as primitive savages by most if not all of the other species.

Dragxes are natural hunters. Their bodies give off almost no scent and they are able to change their body temperature to match their environment. They are also very resistant to most poison and venom. Their reaction speed are unmatched and most of them are trained from a young age to be able to read subtle body movement to predict the actions of their preys.

Dragxes are too busy surviving to worry about laws, religion, or discovering anything new. The tribal leaders are chosen by the strongest in that tribe, regardless of gender. Any time a tribal leader is defeated in combat, the challenger becomes the new leader. That being said, sneakily attacking the tribal leader, or any Dragx for that matter, is seen as cowardly and weak and the attacker will be killed if caught.
-Physical Attributes-
-Bipedal
-Three claw like toes
-Four arms. Two from the shoulders and two retractable from the ribs
-The top arms have hands with three to four fingers with two opposable thumbs. The bottom two arms have pincers.
-Humanoid
-Hairless, white skin
-Omnivorous/Carnivorous
-Lifespan generally between 170 to around 300
-Height varies from between 3 to 8 feet
-Physically fit (Those who aren't usually die before their 10th year)
-Horns/Spikes of bones cover their body
-Eye color: red for male, blue for female

-No visable ears yet somehow able to hear sound.

-Variis-


-Appearance-
Variis stands at the taller end of the scale at 7'9". Like all male Dragxes, Variis' body is covered in bony spikes and his red eyes gives a contrast to his pale skin. Physically fit, he prefers to be naked but wears black pants with a brown belt when in public but refuses to wear a shirt of any kind. He has no markings on his body save a tribal tattoo on his left shoulder.
Due to the lack of time keeping in the Dragx culture, Variis doesn't actually know how old he is. It is speculated that he is around 40-45 years old.

-Personality-
Variis is a very straight forward person. He speaks his mind regardless of how it might be taken. Because of this, people usually take him as a rude individual.
Variis is also one of the few Dragxes that saw the advantage of gaining knowledge. After leaving Nexrith, he learned to read and is constantly looking for new books to learn from.
Like most other Dragxes, Variis is quite hot headed. Although he doesn't actively look for fights, he often finds himself in conflict because of his blunt speech and hot temper.


-Abilities-
Tier 1:
Psychokinesis
Clairsentience
Cyberpathy

Tier 2:
Biomorphosis

Teleportation
Telekinesis


Tier 3:
Polyform
Spatiokinesis


Tier 4:
None


-History-
Variis left Nexrith when he and his fellow tribes men were captured by slavers. The Dragxes were eventually sold as a forced manual labor. It was during this time that Variis began developing his abilities. Using his new found powers, he and his fellow Dragxes escaped and spent the next several years on the run. They eventually gained the attention of a company of mercenaries, known as the Void Walkers, who took them in. Here, Variis learned to read and write as well as beginning to become curious of his powers, which he learned was named psions. He eventually parted ways with his brethren to continue searching for the explanation of these psions.

Vos
Vos is mostly a jungle planet with a single continent covering 1/3 of the planet while the rest is covered in oceans or one singular ocean if you'd like. The planet itself is has a radius of about 5000 km making it smaller than Earth, but due to higher density it has only marginally different gravitational pull. Planet's rotation creates only one biome with two seasons, rain season and dry season. The planet itself was (and still is) mineral rich with both fuel sources and metal, but the nature of the landscape made it hard to extract.

The only sentient species are The Vos, humanoids descended from avian DNA. While they are physically flightless their anatomy, strong and developed pectoral muscles, indicate flying ancestors. This is further supported by historical scripts and illustrations of Harpy-like creatures.
The Vos had a slow technological progress debilitated by their environment and had only recently been given space faring technology.
The Vos - Physiology

Much like the other birds The Vos are laid within an eggshell and must then be kept safe for 5 months before they are ready to hatch. In the early ages, a parent would be required to keep the eggs warm with their body heat and blankets but these days incubators have taken on that burden. Usually, the parents will drop off the egg/eggs at a nearby hatchery and then be notified when it's ready to hatch. The Vos reach full maturity within 16 years of life and have a life expectancy of 80 on average. They are bipedal with two 'knee' joints, one facing forward the other backward. Their feet have three toes with sharp talons in the front and one at the heel, they are capable of holding onto smaller objects with them. Their claws are usually cut or filed down as a sign of courtesy, the exceptions are mostly soldiers who keep their claws sharp for obvious reasons. They have only four fingers including an opposable thumb.
  • Humanoid (flightless-avian)​
  • Bipedal​
  • Omnivorous (Meat, fish, and fruit) - Cannot consume greens as it causes immediate vomiting​
  • Warm-blooded​
  • Life span averages around 80 mostly due to modern medicine and cybernetics​
  • Height 170cm - 250cm; Weight mostly proportional though varies based on lifestyle​
  • Mostly of dark complexion though exceptions exist albeit off their homeworld​
  • The roughest feathers are the ones on the head and are often stylised based on growth patterns. Colours range. Hereditary​
  • Eye colour can range from bright colours to pitch black.​
  • Ears are sometimes not visible but are often accentuated by feather growth around them.​
  • Beaks can range in sizes but most are razor sharp and capable of rending flesh.​

The Vos - Society

The Vos' technological advancement was comparatively slow for a number of reasons ranging from their planet's biome to religious and societal issues. While there is no distinct overpowering of a single sex or gender it is common that most new discoveries or creations bear female names as signs of maternal care and love. This stems from before the incubators were invented where the female would usually choose to remain with the eggs to keep them warm.

Only one religion is present on Vos and it is rooted in all parts of the society.
The Vos believe that every inhabited planet has a soul and that those born on them are spiritually tethered to this soul. Should the Soul become scarred the beings tethered to it will be scarred as well. This causes The Vos to be extremely protective of their planet and additionally they fear to leave it as they believe it would break the tether causing harm to their being.

The entire planet is ruled under one monarch with absolute power but, at the end of each year a council is joined to either remove or keep the monarch. In the case where the monarch is removed, a member of the council becomes the new monarch. The monarchs are almost exclusively men and women of faith who are expected to do what's best for the planet and that is usually what is reviewed at the end of the year. The monarch is removed and then executed only when the end does not justify the means.

The Vos - Technology

Severely handicapped by their religion The Vos advanced very slowly and have only recently been introduced to space-faring technology and all the luxuries that preceded it. While their planet is resource-rich they refuse to mine it extensively and only use as much as they have to; mostly importing materials mined elsewhere. That's not to say they are primitive. While most of their tech is bought from other civilizations they have found their calling in biology and everything related. Zoology, botany, genetic modifications... Rather than drill their planet for resources they work on creating new ones from scratch. Even their architecture was influenced by this creating strange almost 'living' buildings.

Stereotypes

In the eyes of the galaxy, The Vos are mostly viewed as primitive treehuggers. There aren't many who really differ from that description, but they are usually found off-world and as such seeing a Vos anywhere else than on their home planet usually means they are different from the rest. Unfortunately unlike the usual stereotypes to say that The Vos are a race of space hippies would be relatively correct. Their religion is so deeply ingrained in their culture that those advocating technological progress over planetary preservation usually give them a wide berth. Alternatively some of them see a business opportunity and seek to exploit The Vos thinking they are just a bunch of naive customers.
Zaevran Diin

Zaevran is roughly 2 meters (6ft 7in) tall and weighing about 95kg (209lb). He has sharp facial features accentuated by short black and brown feathers in place of his eyebrows and around his ears. He has a relatively short beak reminiscent of one you would see on an eagle except in shades of black and brown being the darkest at the tip. Medium sized eyes with yellow irises and pupils that can vary in dilation based on the amount of light.
Zaevran is physically fit and prefers to wear more practical clothes, cargo pants, a simple shirt and a cargo vest over. Sometimes a coat depending on the environment he is visiting. He never wears boots or gloves mostly due to his physiology but also because he feels it adds to the intimidation aspect.

Personality
Cynical - Stoic - Realistic - Blunt - Proud - Stubborn - 'Adrenaline Junkie'
Zaevran is not really the most talkative sort, he prefers to let his actions speak. That said he is often honest to a fault. While he will not go out of his way to look for trouble he will often find himself in the thick of it. He finds the duality of other people to be incredibly annoying often calling them out for their lies and hypocrisy. That said he is not suicidal and knows full well when to keep his beak shut. If he has something bothering him about a person then they will find that out soon enough, first verbally then if the situation remains the same maybe physically.

He often lets his cynicism overrule some of his finer qualities making him a pain in the ass to deal with when members of the higher classes are present. On the flipside, he feels the best when he's behind the wheel/stick of a spacecraft.

History

Born into a reputable family Zaevran had little to no worries growing up. His was a peaceful and tame upbringing or at least such was the intention of his parents. Both of them were known scientists, his father teaching at a university and his mother working in a lab. They didn't force him to follow in their footsteps or anything of the sort, they pretty much relied on him figuring out what he wants to do on his own. It worked, in a way.

Zaevran had one ambition ever since he first could comprehend the meaning of starry sky. Ever since he could remember he wanted to fly, to feel free from the earth and all its problems. Knowing it went against his people's religion, he approached the topic carefully, but his subtlety was lost and wasted as his parents saw through him right away.

In a happy turnover, they simply had a long discussion and decided to ship off their son to a prestigious off world academy to train him how to pilot all sorts of crafts. Zaevran of course happily accepted and took off as soon as he turned 16.
At the Academy, he was taught how to pilot aircrafts equipped for atmospheric flight and non-atmospheric flight as well as different classes of ships ranging from fighters to cruisers. A couple of years later he ranked among the Top 5 scoring himself a job with a security agency escorting traders from sector to sector.

He worked the security for quite some time, four years to be exact. That's when he got in a very personal and physical argument with one of the commanding officers resulting in his ass being fired. From there he worked a few smuggling jobs, more so for the hell of it than for the money.

After a recent job, about a month back, his Psionics manifested creating a whole lot of questions. The sort of questions he won't answer get answers to on his own.
