Welcome to Thursday's Pact Days! Today, we have the Syrryn.
They haven't been introduce yet and play a part in Bespoken. Their society and structure isn't a part of the plot for the Valespian Pact so I was able to leave a good deal of information on the sheet.
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.
Planet: Syrrys Whyte
Other races on the planet:
Patron Ryo Pardeep:
Description: average height 5'9 to 7'8". Hive mentality.
Three (3) distinct life stages to physical and mental development: Drone, Secondary, Primary
Drones: they have no individuality but are a part of a hive mind which serves both the Secondary, and the Primary who laid the eggs. Drones are blue-skinned, black eyes, and sexless.
Secondary: At a certain stage of development (usually 50 years of age unless the parent Primary chooses to initiate it artificially) the Drone will enter a chrysalis stage which they will eventually emerge as a secondary.
Secondaries, although more independent of thought and action, still live to serve the primary. Secondaries still have blue skin, but it is lighter in color and they are taller than the drones. Sometimes they have eye color other than black. However, they are still sexless.
Primary: Bald with unique spots and/or stripes running from their foreheads down their backs. Their eyes are large and pupil-less. Nose and ears are small. Their hands have elongated fingers with a 4th knuckle on each finger.
The primary is fully capable of independent thought and action. They are able to lay eggs in clutches. Since Syrryns never lay more clutches than they need servants and assistants, Syrryns may lay only one clutch in their lifetime, although they can still lay multiple clutches.
Syrryns see well into the infa-red range, and use heat variations to distinguish their environments rather than reflect light as humans do. Their sense of smell and hearing are not as developed as other races. Even though most Syrryns have a form of psi ability (how the hive communicates), they are completely incapable of mentalist abilities. Their average life span is 500 years.
Their culture focuses on science and the ways of science. Exploration, research, and physical analysis are the most important things to the typical Syrryn. No matter what an individual Syrryn's chosen field of study, they will go to virtually any lengths in order to advance personal knowledge and transmit that knowledge home. As a consequence, they will often consider their own life and lives of their colleagues to be expendable in the pursuit of such knowledge. However, they are not suicidal and will not go out of their way to destroy themselves. They are simply incredibly single-minded and determined.
