The IC, everyone.
CLOSED FOR NOW
When man had to leave Earth it was no one’s fault, but their own. Their own foolishness lead them down the path of destruction. They brought the end with the technology made to save the world. When man is given knowledge they are given strength. When given strength that leads to power. When given power they have the choice to create or destroy. By then the knowledge given to them is lost and they know not which to pick. They could create a better world or leave it in ruin. Sadly the wrong choice was made.
The year was 3371, it was the brightest year before the darkness. Humans were the only fauna left living on Earth. The only ones capable of surviving the Singularity that plagued the world for 500 years. They believed themselves to be wise enough to never let another calamity fall upon them. Believing that weapons were the only way to prevent the end from occurring. With this ideal set in the minds of leaders around the world the project to create the savior had begun.
Sadly they built the devil.
Their first finished projects were the Star Fighters. Mechanical beings capable of combatting anything coming from outer space. Originally intended to deflect asteroids and comets that enter Earth’s atmospheres. As time passed they began to be used for warfare by countries who wished for more power and control over the third project. With their use in warfare they began to become more combat orientated. Becoming more agile, higher armor quality, and weapons made purely for warfare.
The second project were the Domes. As expected from the name, they were gigantic 100 kilometer domes that surrounded people from all sides. They were made for protection as they were able to withstand; an earthquake, an indirect blast from a nuclear explosion, and the force of a medium sized asteroid. With all the land and water inside of them being filtrated by facilities buried in the ground they were capable of provide necessities for people in a case of isolation. Though once the third project had begun production many countries began to fit their Domes with an escape plan. A way to leave the plan and still be able to live and survive. Once they saw the plans for the third project they knew this must be done.
Finally there was the third project, dubbed The Messiah. A large satellite that was able to be seen with the naked eye from earth. It was a large titan created by the U.N. in order to deter any acts that could bring along the end. But something that powerful was too much for one man to share. Soon every country waged war against one another using the Star Fighters as their weapons.
Within three days the war had been lost by everyone. The five super powered nations; Russia, Europia, The United Lands of America, China, and Japan had decided to pull the plug on the world. They set coordinates for an empty area in space, launched their Domes, and decided to let the Messiah save the world.
Once the Domes were drifting through space, the world was gone in the blink of an eye.
Skip forward in time, the year is X622. It has been 622 years since the human race landed on a suitable planet for habitation. And so much has occurred; Starships were created capable of warping around the galaxy they inhabit, 7 developed alien species were discovered, a universal translator was created, a Court was made to deal with interstellar relations, the Star Fighters were created by the humans and defense and the initial designs were given to the surrounding species as an act of peace, Galactic Navies were created
And The Motley Crew of Fools was born. A group of pirates from all different backgrounds with the goal to stop the terror caused by the Galactic Navy of Earth 2. Riding upon the stolen dreadnought class Starship, the Elwood, they are lead by Leon Rowan a man who has seen first hand what the Galactic Navy does and will stop at nothing to cease it.
(More information will be revealed throughout the story.)
Your standard humans. If from Earth 2, they can be a variety of ethnicity. If from Planet of Yu Gan must be of Asian decent.
Home Planet(s): Earth 2 or Planet of Yu Gan
Sexless humanoids who look as if created by smashing ash together. Dusters are completely solid and seem to have muscle mass, but it isn't visible which makes them extremely difficult to read. As one that looks like a twig has the potential to hold back a charging vehicle. They are completely black other then their eyes which taken on a color depending on what job they have. They began to wear clothing that humans created in order to give themselves a sense of individuality.
Home Planet(s): Ortis
Munal's is the unofficial name given to the canine like species that inhabit Ortis. They are the second most intelligent species in the galaxy. They come in all types of appearances, resembling breeds of dogs, foxs, and wolves. They are a quadpedal species. The tails of the Munal are very important. 1. ) Because the will have a almost hand like limb at the end of them in order to grab stuff and 2. ) Depending on the amounts of tails one has shows it's social status. 12 is royalty while 1 is an untouchable.
Home Planet(s): Ortis
Are a very tall race that are usually around 7"0'. Their hair ranges from very bizarre colors such as pink and white to bright red and deep blue. They have small crystals growing out of their body because of their crystal dependence that caused enough energy to allow growth of them in their body. Naturally armored and armed because of these strange crystals.
Home Planet(s): Robden
Are humanoids that resembles Monkey of the previous Earth. They come in two varieties, Prime Simians who are extremely ape like with extremely large arms that can reach the ground, and generally crawl around. Though do have the ability to stand on two feet. They are heavyweights capable of taking a punch and delivering one, but not to quick on their feet or agile. The way they loss their resemblance to Apes it the fact they wear armor and have very human like facial features, such as the possibility of facial hair. The other species is Semi Simians who appear to be humans with monkey like features. Such as halving a tail, being hairier, and having monkey like feet. They wear more tribal like armor in order to keep their mobility. While smart enough to create and operate Star Fighters they are the least intelligent of the species.
Home Planet(s): Home World for Our People.
Custom Race: The Saayed
A race of reptilian-looking humanoids, the Saayed were spawned upon their home planet, Irys. In their particular solar system the sun isn't as close as it is to Earth, making the planet incredibly dark.
A mass of jagged cliffs, mountains, rivers of lava and deep pits, it's no wonder that Irys is nicknamed "The Jungle of Stone". Due to erratic orbit, heavy gravity and various, smaller tectonic plates on the planet's surface, the rock formations cause a labyrinth of rocky ledges and tangles of various jagged spears. It's also littered with caves and suffers from volcanic eruptions from time to time.
The Sayeed needed to change biologically in order to survive, thus a certain measure of adaption was in order. Their scales are thinner and flatter to keep the heat out, but due to the rocky nature of their home world they have a certain degree of toughness to withstand scratches and pierces. Not nearly as touch as the crystal armour on a Crystalian, but something more akin to tough, thick leather.
The twisted mass of rock in Irys makes many of the Sayeed very quick and agile, giving them long tails, clawed hands and feet to grip to rough, rocky surfaces.
Most, if not all Sayeed, are completely flat-chested. The only thing to show the visible gender are the long, scaly tails that sprout from their head like hair. Similar to hair, it can get cut and shaped with little loss save for some fluid. They have long, thin horns for decoration, a forked tongue and small, sharp teeth.
Their strongest talent would be their hearing. Their ears detect even the slightest of sounds if they're in hearing distance, but this also means that they are quire sensitive to loud noises, so much so that they become very disorientated and it causes pain, but no damage to their hearing.
Due to the heavier gravity field and their agility, the Sayeed are notoriously well-known for being very quiet and sneaky. Their diet consists, mainly, of raw meat and insects. They're lactose intolerant and don't need much water to get by, they dislike sweet foods and are lactose-intolerant.
Society on Irys and Society in Space
On Irys, the Sayeed have varying degrees of intelligence. While most prefer a more tribal lifestyle over the complicated machinery, they tend to meet at the middle-ground by being quite used to criminal acts like murder, seeing it as a perfectly reasonable trait.
They are quite nomadic, but some of the smarter Sayeed fortify their cave dwellings for a long-term stay. They successfully created space travel 217 years ago and have been perfecting it ever since. The only organized group of Sayeed is known as the Shadow Council, a group well-known for their ambassadors and, more importantly, their spies.
Outside of Irys, the Sayeed are generally regarded as very, very untrustworthy. Since they're perfectly fine with murder, cheating and lying, they are widely known for being criminals and low-life scum. The only acceptable Sayeed is one who wears a Shadow Council badge and even then, most Sayeed look awfully familiar and their concept on 'murder' is rather sketchy...
