The Calipha of Asimidiske (Dagudashaag 0828) are a Jovionoid dwelling Minor Non-Human Race and technologically primitive sophonts.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In 304 the semi-intelligent Calipha (or skimmers as they are sometimes known) were discovered three kilometers down in Cuauhtemoc atmosphere. Due to extreme difficulties in establishing contact within a gas giant atmosphere several research bases were set up in mined out craters on the moons surface. Several large research stations dedicated to studying the Calipha, funded by non-Protectorate academic foundations. In 1033 the Domination finally admitted that the Calipha were one of their geneered sub-races that had lost their intelligence for reasons they refused to explain. Attempts to persuade the Domination to recontact the Calipha have so far been ignored.
