One of the founding races of the Empire of the Sol, the Saelnos are an ancient race—one that has long been traversing the stars. Known for their calm demeanor, and calculated approach, the Saelnos have built vast ornate cities, and fantastically intricate space faring vessels. The Saelnos are gentle by nature, yet ferocious in protecting that which they hold dear.
Despite a physique entirely alien to the denizens of Earth, those who look upon an Saelnos tend to find them eerily calming. They are slightly taller than humans, averaging around 6 feet. They are more slender than humans, weighing around 180 pounds. Saelnos are agendered, each capable of either fertilizing, or carrying a child.
Saelnos coloration ranges from shades of pink, to purple, and sometimes blue. They are completely hairless, and often paint their bodies to represent familial line, social status, and other cultural indicators.
Saelnos can live over 700 years. They are more often amused than excited, and more likely to be curious than greedy. They generally remain aloof and unfazed by the pettiness of younger, shorter-lived races. Saelnos can be focused and relentless. They are slow to make friends, and loyal to a fault. Saelnos prefer to resolve conflicts with diplomacy, yet are unafraid to put up a fight when no alternative presents itself.
