PostSubject: Khash Stellar Emergence (the Emergency) and the Khash   Wed Oct 29, 2014 3:16 pm

Faction Application

Faction Name: Khash Stellar Emergence
Faction Type: Technocracy
Territory: Khasharnat system (Khashar and various orbital facilities)
Species: Khash
Culture: The dominant culture of the khashi has always been one of independence and learning, though undertones of deceit and manipulation are often present. Due to their biological constraints, they do not collaborate too frequently or intimately, leading to many khashi scientists producing similar results independent of one another, keeping their knowledge private for years or even decades. This, along with the tendency for khashi minds to live for hundred of years and through a dozen bodies, has led to global stagnation as khashi refuse to share their research and ideas immediately. Science and philosophy have great focus on the qualities of the khashi mind, and ways to circumvent its restrictions or manipulate it as they desire.
History: Ultimately, the rise of the Khashi as an industrial and space power came from the personal philosophies of a khash who was considered an insane, deviant manipulator. He was the head and creator of the so-called Flenser Movement, a collection of scientists who used their fellow khash as experiments. Flenser, as he came to be known, believed the mind was something that could be freely shaped and molded to fit a purpose, a powerful tool in the hands of intelligent beings. Rather than pursue the methods of lesser philosophers who only taught and challenged their students, Flenser created his students, breeding and conditioning hatchlings of intelligent khash. He created fearsome generals, brilliant mathematicians, and flawless laborers: all of them were focused wholly on their designated tasks, idiot savants forged, not born. With a distinct advantage in research, computational, and industrial ability, Flenser conquered the three continents of Khashar in a matter of decades, spreading his philosophy: from the exploitation of a few, we can better the world for the many. Some hundreds and a thousand years later, these so-called “Focused” minds are still used, either forged from the enslaved remains of the Emergency’s enemies, or from volunteers and tributes, the latter groups occasionally finding themselves free from service after several decades, un-Focused and rich.

Species Application

Species Name: Khash (plural: khashi)
Physiological Description: Khashi have an overall serpentine body plan. Their heads are somewhat hook-shaped, with a bony crest that extends back toward the tail end. Their mouths are beak-like, and the lower jaw almost disappears into the upper jaw when the mouth isn’t open, making it appear seamless except from below. A single arm extends from the body about a quarter of the way down from the head, the claw at the end resembling a khash mouth, but shorter and narrower. The chest where the arm protrudes from has a slight depression, reducing the drag the arm produces when the khashi slither, but the claw still digs a distinct channel through mud and dirt, slightly deeper than the khash body. Khashi have soft flesh, devoid of scales or carapace, but their bodies are heavily muscled in most cases.
Other: Sapient khashi are groupminds composed of several khashi bodies, linked together and thinking through sound waves.
