The Seven Great Races
The seven great races are a part of my own universe. The seven are members of a council including pharlans
who had, in a previous age, invaded the homeworlds of most the six other races.
The seven races are:
A physically powerful and technologically advanced race superficially
resembling a bird-human hybrid.
Their biology is acutally quite strange and unlike that of bird or
humans. They are carnivorous and hunt other creatures for food (the
eating of sentient races is usually frowned upon but individual
pharlans may engage in that behavior).
Pharlans believe in superiority of the mind and body, revering skilled
warriors, innovative researchers and skilled hunters with almost equal
The most technologically advanced of the seven (with the possible
exception of the Keynari), they invaded many other worlds during a
period known as "the wrongful conquest."
There are some pharlans that would like to return to their more
true bird race native to a firey homeworld. Tartarians hate the cold
and love all forms of art.
They have incredibly beautiful voices and their singing can bring the
hardest of hearts to tears.
Initially they can be very persuasive and charismatic but after a while
they often become tiresome and irritating.
However there are some that choose to become fierce warriors (there's a
small subfaction of them called the Nakala but they are not included in
the mod yet). Most other Tartarians look down their (incredibly long)
noses at this sort of behavior but those that choose the warrior
profession are quite dangerous indeed! Mostly Tartarians like that are
considered to have a kind of "pharlan wannabe" complex - mostly
happened after they got invaded by the Pharlans. Tartarians were
subject to humiliation by pharlans
as their farmlands were destroyed and they were forced to rely on
handouts of food.
A dragon race, skilled in the arts of war and
with a high sense of honor. They are quite intelligent although they do
not emphasize technological advancement as much as the other races.
At about 500 years of age they metamorphose into "true" four footed
They usually go on to live another few thousand years after that. The
Ryukaissen were not successfully invaded by pharlans due to the
pharlans respect for their unshakeable courage in battle. The full
story may be found in "The Pact of Dragons",
a book found within The Way of the Talon quest mod.
A shape shifting race. Hazaeki are capable of transforming themselves into any shape they
The Hazaeki are parasitic in nature and must absorb nutrition from a living host.
Hazaeki can also live inside of a host creature to regenrate for months at a time.
Hazaeki cannot control the actions of
it's host but instead enters a kind of sleep state inside of the host.
Killing of hosts is considered very bad and must be avoided at all
costs. Hazaeki occasionally form partnerships with an individual of another
intelligent species, which then serves as the host when necessary.
Keynari are small and highly intelligent foxes. Along with the
Ryukaissen they are the closest allies of pharlans.
Their technological specialty is biotechnology. They were not
successfully invaded by pharlans and rumors persist that the keynari
had developed a biological weapon to destroy the pharlans major food
source, the Gakra rek. However there is much dispute as to whether this
truly the case or it was a deception by the Keynari or a lie generated
or allowed by pharlans as an excuse for an alliance. The Keynari love
anything complex and intricate and
may be enthralled by complicated problems. In Morrowind they excel
equally as mages or thieves.
The Hrotha are a strange race in that they have 3
sexes. The more humanoid, male and female and the massive beast-like
Super females are often powerful warriors while males and females tend
to take more peacful roles in society.
The Hrotha were among the first races to be subdued by pharlans but
they did not suffer intensely under pharlan rule.
A sort of "cat race".
More like humans with
cat-like eyes and a bit of fur. The Chefik were originally more
technologically advanced than pharlans and attacked them
However once pharlans caught up in technology they responded to the chefik attack by
attacking them mercilessly. The chefik were hunted and eaten by
pharlans nearly to the point of extinction
during the time of the wrongful conquest. Afterward this time was ended, pharlans tried to
help rebuild their society, largely succeeding. However Chefik today
have very low genetic diversity but are skilled in stealth and EXTREMELY cautious, almost nervous. Most
not hold ill-will towards pharlans as many, many generations have
passed since the conflict. However there are occasional pharlans who
still think of the Chefik as food.
The seven races all largely speak the pharlan language although most have their own tounge as well.
Tartarians have been especially resistant to adopting the pharlans language.
