The pacifistic Athar are descended from hexapodal (six-limbed) carnivores. They are rarely seen off-world as their ideal temperature is -130°C and they would boil to death in normal human temperatures.
History and background
The world is actually run by a bureaucracy divided into a number of Councils, all concerned with different aspects of life on A'A'Suni. Some of the most important include the Council of the Environment, the Council of Provision, and the Council of Defense. Usually a single extended family forms the core of a Council, and is headed by the leader of the family.
