The Corsettin are a minor race native to Karrana'ch (Dagudashaag 0302). Not much is know about the race as their extinction occurred before the arrival of either the Vilani or the S'mrii.

Archaeological and cultural sophontology[edit]

The original race apparently never progressed beyond TL-3. The culture was based around sun-worship, a common phenomenon found throughout space amongst primitive societies. Fire was seen as the “earthly” son of god and was treated with equal reverence.

All funerals ended in cremation (or so it seemed) except criminals. Through fire one was believed to come into contact with the spirit of god - cleansed, purified and reborn fee of sins. Criminals appear to nave been mutilated at death, hence the lack of accurate anatomical detail of the race found at any of the archaeological sites. All the known details of the races exact features come from rough statues and crude wall paintings.

Gold covered caskets had been found presumably containing the ashes of the dead — albeit individuals important within the primitive society.
