Welcome to Thursday's Pact Days! Today, we have the Kracciam.
The Kracciam hasn't been introduced yet, so there isn't a character that I can talk about. They are large, sentient dolphinlike race who has a symbiotic relationship (not host related) with the Otaria. Enjoy!
A couple of side notes: For a list of species that have been posted so far, see the The People of Valespia page. I'm placing these in alphabetical order so I won't unintentionally place importance on any specie. I will leave off information on the species that will spoil future books. My standard sheet has the same categories for all species. So there will be blank categories just because that species didn't need them.
Species: Kracciam [krak-see-am]
Planet: Hhrota (means Mother)
Other races on the planet: Otaria
Planetary Terrain: 92% water, rocky land
Patron Ryo Pardeep:
Description: Average height between 5 feet and 9 feet. Telekinetic. Resemble oversized dolphins. They are paired with another being that can live on both land and water. The Otaria speaks for the Kracciam.
Tribes are centered around an elderly female who in most cases is the mother of most the females within the tribes. There are no territorial boundaries. Tribes are nomadic, migrating were they will, meeting and interacting with other tribes for breeding or tooling. Their young are born in litters of one or two family/tribal units consisting of two to six females and their cubs as well as numerous unattached males.
The Kracciam is not physically fearsome. They have the highest level of telekinetic ability of any known species. They use it when dealing with their hostile environment. In battle, they have pulled objects off the ocean floor and hurtle it 300 mph. They can manipulate up to 10x their body weight/mass through telekinesis. Can create unique and individualized tools. Can telekinetically retool ores in groups. The devices they create cannot be replaced because each one, no matter how complex, is always made of a single piece. Tooling is considered a great social event. Several tribes will gather close to the shoreline to work
They have no use for money or material goods. Their services cannot be bought by Terrens. They bestow these devices as gifts at their digression. The tools are extremely valued.
They communicate in shrill whistles and chirps. Mildly telepathic. The Otaria communicate for them when offworld or when dignitaries visit the planet.
They are excellent navigators and serve on many of the most prestigious starliners.
Some leave their homeworld to satisfy curiosity.
Little to no material culture.
They bond in sexual pairs, but the relationship is not lifelong. A typical adult will bond 20-30 times in the course of their life.
Devices they have created:
Healers: Healing devices of unknown capabilities.
Pushers: starship drives the size of a basketball
Weapons of all kinds
Help the Giantes with special projects.
Common Occupation: Miner (Chemistry, Crystallography, geology, Invention, Jeweler, Mason, Mining), Navigator (Computer operator, computer programing, math, mechanical operations, quantum physics, read/write, astronavigation, astronomy), and Teacher (anthropology/sociology, biology, bluff/bribe, chemistry, dancing, diplomacy, etiquette, historian, interrogation, lore, math, memorize, psychology, sage, knowledge, imitation/mimicry, storytelling)
