    Roleplay takes place on a planet sized illicit space station just outside of the law, where smugglers and criminals live. Fit snugly between two blackholes, this space station is run completely independent from the Galaxy's enforcement. All that said though, it's a rather peaceful community. Many businesses have their headquarters there and crime rates are actually much lower here than in most other parts of the galaxy.

    Pick a Race and Create a character:

    Humans:

    BOI U KNOW WHAT THIS IS. But for reference: Humans were the first creatures to reach space travel and meet aliens. Because of this, they basically got eternal dibs to be the main leaders of the Space Government and Culture. They usually feel superior to other races because of this.

    Human Character Sheet:
    Name:

    Gender:
    Job:

    Backstory:
    Other:

    Kations:

    Kations are a hyper intelligent warmongering Cat-like race of aliens.

    Home Planet: Naraka. Cold. Mostly land based planet with rings. Has two extremes of forest and barren stone mountains.
    Biology: Evolved from a preditory species that became the dominant race.
    Diet: Meat. Can sometimes substitute this with plant matter but will normally get heavily sick if they don't eat meat for awhile.
    Average Height: 5 feet tall
    Average Lifespan: 50-75 years if not "Ascended"
    What is Ascension?: GLAD YOU ASKED. Ascension is a ceremony where at the age of 16, all male and female kations are taken, their heads cut off and placed onto robotic bodies, and their normal bodies are harvested for organs and genetic material to be used to continue producing the species.
    Genders: Kations are a three gendered race of two givers and one receiver. These being the Male, Female, and Androgyne, respectively.
    Gender Differences: Males have sleeker fur, and are less likely to have puffs of fur on their body. Females are much more fluffy, and are more likely to have puffs sticking out on them. Androgynes have more rounded ears and have softer fur than normal, their fur fluff differs from case to case.
    So Wait, Why Aren't Androgynes Allowed to Ascend?: Well, that's simple! Natural reproduction of kations has always been safer and had less fatalities than test tube creations. Speaking of which...
    Reproduction: Kation reproduction is done via artificial insemination of an androgyne using the harvested genetic material from ascended kations. If kations did not ascend, technically only two genders would be necessary for reproduction, but offspring of two parents usually have high mortality rates and are less healthy than those of three.
    Ascended Kation Body Information: Various different versions of the armor exist for different jobs. Warriors are more likely to have faster, more silent bodies. Miners will have tougher bodies that can withstand higher pressure and absolute zero environments. Their fingers are fully movable and has touch sensitivity.
    Social Ranks (ranked from greatest to least): The Great Computer > The Technician (Maintains the Computer) > Kation Ambassadors > The Engineers/Coders > The Army > Miners/Other Jobs > Androgynes > Their Alien Slaves > Hackers
    "Ambassadors"?: Yes, "Ambassadors", emphasis on the quotes. Their idea of ambassadors are one man strike teams they send out to wipe out planets and prep them for Kation colonization. Of course there are actual ambassadors. Two of them actually. They hold the kation seat on the Galaxy's Senate. Ambassador armor is usually much more complex than other armor. Usually stronger and works much faster than normal. It also has a much more complex AI system built into it than normal kation armor does. Going so far as to replicate real kation behavior rather than just being like a better Siri. Though it is extremely rare for a kation to be given the prestigious title of Ambassador.
    And the Great Computer?: It's the most advanced ai in the universe. The kations made it to rule them. It has the programming of doing whatever it needs to to keep the kation race going and to make it the most powerful species around.
    Species Goal: To continue to have their species repopulate and reach their final stage of life being the dominant species in the galaxy. They will do anything to keep their species going. If this is not the case with your Kation, you need a really good reason why they are disobeying the Great Computer.
    Art: Kations do not have a concept of art. They don't enjoy paintings or music and would much rather see photographs of things. All their books are non-fiction and their closest thing to "music" is soothing recordings of their mates trilling or speaking what sounds to be gibberish to most other species. Giving a recording of you to someone is shown as a heavily intimate display of trust and affection.
    Entertainment: FIGHTING BRO. Gladiator style arena matches are the ultimate form of entertainment to kations. They regularly take the strongest aliens from planets they conquer and have them fight against each other or their strongest warrior kations in arenas to find out which species is the strongest. Kations all over the galaxy will froth over the idea of being able to watch two people beat the shit out of each other, though they may not want to partake in it themselves. A kation who is completely against violence is practically unheard of, and is shunned by all.
    Relationships: Usually won't date outside of their species because of their own society based racism that makes them they feel as though their species is the only good one and others are inferior. They are typically polyamorous and would look for two mates, but due to androgynes being confined to the home planet or being given as gifts to other nations they're at peace with, most have to settle for only one. Not having a relationship is the normal due to how kations rarely are in one place long enough to form them. Relationships are tragically 99% of the time long distance, with the 1% being kations on the same crew as each other.
    Childhood: Kations are raised by the androgyne that birthed them until they are 16.
    Communication: They communicate with a series of purrs and meows. Though their suits automatically translate what they're saying for them.
    RANDOM SPECIES FUN FACT: No kation actually knows how they mate normally without artificial breeding. Most knowledge of this has been forgotten and destroyed.

    Silicoids:

    Silicoids are gooey silicon based life forms with no visible mouths that use a form of telepathy to understand other creatures.

    Home Planet: None. They evolved in space.
    Average Height: None
    Average Lifespan: Biologically immortal
    Diet: Radiation. They may also feed on gems, which is considered a highly sought after delicacy. They even have a partially evolved digestive tract and sharp mouth just for the consumption of these stones. Their sharp mouth is known to be especially terrifying, as it is partially melting. Though they can't actually digest anything and usually end up vomiting a melted mess out of their system. They may also consume dyes, which can change their body color.
    Genders: None. They have no genders or gender characteristics, their bodies couldn't even maintain them if they wanted to. They may adopt gendered pronouns but in general they all look the same.
    Reproduction: They can reproduce asexually or "sexually". Asexually they split when they have fed off of too much radiation and have excess, allowing them to spend the energy on splitting off into two copies of the same silicoid, with both silicoids losing half their memories. Sexually two silicoids will hold hands and merge together at that point. they will then split off 1/4 of their bodies each to create a new, genetically different, silicoid.
    Relationships: They typically don't date as they have no need to. Some may become close friends and merge their bodies together to create a new being, but that's roughly how far their relationships go. Though some of the most intelligent silicoids may pursue interspecies relationships, they usually fail as their species cannot feel romantic love the same way most species can. Most relationships with a silicoid are heavily one sided.
    Biology: They are made from molten silicon that consists of their entire brain. They can harden the silicon to make their body cooler and let them do more tasks that require a less oozy body, up to creating a mostly humanoid shape, though excessive shapeshifting puts a strain on their health without the proper diet.
    Intelligence: Silicoids are known to be a very stupid race, with their most intelligent being just slightly better than the human average. Many say the average intelligence for a silicoid is roughly 70-85.
    Communication: Their language is a form of telepathy that only heavily trained individuals can understand. However, silicoids can understand what other species are saying, no matter the language. There are some collars that are put on silicoids "necks" that can make their telepathy be broadcasted via a speaker on the collar in base english.
    Jobs: Silicoid jobs are odd.. They normally have three kinds of workers. 1. Explorers, only used on silicoid colonies where they have lost the map to the planet or just don't remember anymore. 2. Miners: Live on asteroids and collect precious gems and such for other silicoids. 3. Designers: Silicoids who are of the highest intelligence who work on improving the lives of other silicoids. They usually lead most colonization movements.
    Weaponry: Although silicoids are pacifists by heart who could never harm another being, they have designed one weapon. It's a DNA locked plasma sword that cannot harm the person who's DNA is locked into it. It's standard issue to their explorers are a way to help get around some obstacles, who potentially protect them if they ever found a species that preyed on silicoids. It is one of the few weapons that can actually harm a silicoid, due to their line of thinking of "If it doesn't hurt me then it wouldn't hurt the other guy".
    Art: Silicoids are huge fans of art, except for music. Their artist ability is heavily limited to really bad drawings. But they enjoy all visual art no matter how bad. They don't like music due to their inability to hear it, but if their bodies have electrical currents or vibrations from the music put into them they're known to act wildly and be out of the silicoid's control. Symptoms of having music playing in a silicoid are: Rapid shapeshifting to the music, swift color changing (even if dye has not previously been consumed), and size variations on their protomouth and eyes.
    RANDOM SPECIES FUN FACT: They only have Four Senses: Touch, Really Basic Taste, Sight, and their telepathy. They do not have the ability to smell or hear. This is thought to be because they evolved in a vacuum they didn't need any of those senses.

    Aluns:

    The aluns are a plantlike parasitic species that can disguise itself as a plant to attract its prey before it burrows into their prey's chest.

    Home Planet: Thought to have come from the prehistoric planet of Eideen
    Average Height: About half a foot
    Average Lifespan: Without a host, only about two years. With a host, it will live as long as the host does.
    Diet: It feeds off of nutrients it's host gets.
    Genders: None
    Reproduction: It disguises itself as a plant and waits for prey to get near it. Or it will walk around on it's sharp spider-like legs before it's prey gets near it. Once the prey is near, the Alun will jump out and dig into the prey's chest. They will then spread their roots throughout their nervous system and pilot the prey like a meat puppet while their eggs start budding inside. After a certain time has passed, the host explodes in a burst of tiny alun, killing both the host and the original alun.
    Relationships: As alun hold any memories it's host had, they may stick with the same relationships their host has in order to keep suspicion off of them. Alternatively, they may play up the part of their host and try to become in a new relationship. Though any relationship they may have is specifically to try to implant the partner with another alun.
    Biology: Carbon based. Can only have carbon based organic hosts. Have sharp teeth on their underbelly that they used to bite and claw into their's host's chest. Can look like a specific plant for a time by spilling out it's guts that it can then retract if prey is nearby. Heavily evolved around sneaking. Cannot leave host once implanted.
    FUN FACT: Most infestations happen while the host is asleep.
    FUN FACT x2 COMBO: If the alun is removed from the host, both will die. The host immediately, the alun minutes after.

    Thoraxxians:

    Iron based species that are notorious weapons dealers.

    Home Planet: Thraxxes C
    Average Height: 4' 11''
    Average Lifespan: 120 years
    Diet:  An iron based "fungi" on their home planet is considered a delicacy to them. Can pretty much eat any iron rich substance.
    Genders: Male and female
    Reproduction: Rather normal reproduction, though unfunctional with carbon lifeforms, as it involves super heating.
    Relationships: They have the same concept of romance as humans, though it's typically done for more diplomatic reasons then romantic.
    Biology: Iron based life form that cant breathe too much oxygen. They require suits in more heavily oxygenated environments. Has a skin color of various yellows, browns, reds, and greens.
    Inter-Species Relations: Thoraxxians are well known as arms dealers in the galaxy. They can produce some of the most premium weaponry, which makes it unlikely for people to be wanting to get on their bad side. They keep a rather neutral stance on a lot of politics and typically just arm both sides of a conflict.

    Koruks:

    Bug-like aliens that harvest other carbon species to create their stuff.

    Home Planet: Unidentified. Rather wide spread, like a virus.
    Average Height: Can range from as big as a German Shepard to as tall as a two story house.
    Average Life Span: Drone: 3 Years, Warrior: 5 Years, Queens: Unknown but no captive Queens have died yet, Hiveminds: Biologically Immortal
    Genders Types of Species: Drone (a worker class Koruk that moves like a centipede, using three clawed "hands" to manipulate object. Can think circles around a human, but is non-sentient. Has acidic spit that can dissolve almost any carbon based object or life), Warrior (Large spiked and clawed beast with multiple sets of wings hidden underneath it's tough carapace. Has acidic spit that can dissolve almost any carbon based object or life), Queen (One of the two "sentient" Koruks. Spawns and protects the larvae. Has acidic spit that can dissolve almost any carbon based object or life), Hivemind (a biological structure formed out of ten queens, melted together into an immobile tumor in the earth. Looks to be a pit of teeth. Is used to control large amounts of Workers and Drones from far away.)
    Relationships and Courting: The queen births larvae that can be either warrior, drone, or another queen if fed a form of royal jelly created by a hivemind's blood. Romance is non-existent, though in rare cases some queens or hive minds may attempt to strike up a relationship with another species either by themselves or through mind control of a Drone or Warrior.
    Koruk Buildings: Koruk buildings are always biological and living matter, formed from the melted corpses of
    enemies fought and slaughtered. The insides are covered with organs, blood vessels, bones, and other organic materials. They are usually self sustaining and self repairing, but also described by many as "totally fucking gross dude I mean I just cant wrap my head around how god awful these creatures are, oh god that building has part of ted's face fused on it, oh god oh god oh god-"
    Sentience: While typically not sentient, if a drone or warrior has been disconnected from a queen or hivemind for an extended period of time, they have been known to display signs of sentience including attempts at communication. It also seems as though their lifespan increases dramatically.

    Elohin:

    An amphibious race with a symbiotic relationship with itself and changes gender depending on age.

    Home Planet: TRAPPIST-1
    Average Height: 7 feet as female, foot long as male.
    Average Life Span: 150. 75 as female, 75 as male.
    Gender: Starts off as female, but then as a male, they turn into a worm like creature that attaches itself onto the back of the female's head and forms a telepathic bond.
    Diet: Herbivore mostly. Can feed off of other aquatic life.
    Relationships: They pretty much form their own relationships the second they are born when they are dunked under the water and bonded with their mate. They are both considered to be one person, until the female forms into a male and sheds their mate. Some of them have tried poly amorous relationships with other species, but they typically wont do that.
    Biology: Carbon-based and amphibious. Starts off as female at birth, then at 75 years old they shed their bodies and mate and form into a male in their pools.
    Interspecies Relations: Peaceful with most, preferring to spread their teachings around rather than taking over stuff.
