Physiology and ecology
Heredity and extensive super-calcification treatments have produced extreme bone density. However, their human heritage combined with their crushed and wrinkled appearance tend to disturb more traditional members of Humaniti. Bye-Ren adapt easily to lower gravities, but their short legs often cause trouble in keeping up with their taller kin. Their super-rugged metabolism tends to "wear out" sooner than other humans', even in normal gravity, and the high blood pressure needed in their home environment causes significant bleeding problems.
Archaeological and Cultural Sophontology
The Bye-Ben are the survivors of a mining expedition abandoned at the end of the First Imperium. Bye-Ren are extreme in their regard for personal loyalty and refusals to abandon either responsibilities or comrades, and in holding both friendship and enmity for life.
They tend to disdain luxury and have the interesting social tradition that altitude indicates importance.
Since the Bye-Ren have only recently been re-contacted and are still seldom visited, their technology lags far behind the Imperium’s.
This race is primarily located in the following areas:
The homeworld of this race is:
Note: Bye-Ren-Ay is a derivation of the Solomani name given to the inhabitants. Technically, the world is the third circling Deltii. The natives have a variety of names for their world, few of them flattering or endearing, the most common being Gu-tes-tray, which translated means "home above death."
