Aikhiy is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Eakoi Subsector of the Reaver's Deep Sector.
  • About 40% of the population is composed of Aslan.
  • The remaining 60% is composed of humans and other sophonts.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Aikhiy system was originally explored by Aslan clan scouts and a small colony was placed on Aikhiy by the Loakhtarl clan circa -80. Never fully successful, the residents were one of the first of their colonies to succumb to the Turmoils. All that remains of the Aslan colony are a few ruins and the world names.
