The Chirpers are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Chirpers are a semi-intelligent Minor Race native to a number of worlds.

Physiology and ecology[edit]

Chirpers are omnivore/gatherers in the 25 kilogram class. Living in small groups with limited social organization, they follow age-old patterns of gathering fruits and berries in the wild, supplementing their diets with occasional small animals, which they catch and kill with crude tools.

Chirpers are named for the sharp bird-like chirp which characterizes their speech.

Finally, chirpers are extremely swift, much more so than their size or build would indicate. They can dash and dart about unseen, if they care to. It is nearly impossible to catch a chirper.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Archaeological and cultural sophontology: The species was originally native to Droynia and was spread to many worlds by the Ancients. They belong to the same genus as Droyne. Previously found on many worlds in and outside the Imperium, they have been systematically reduced to a few scattered groups in marginal territories.

Chirpers are recognized by Imperial authorities as intelligent, and as such, they enjoy the protections and responsibilities of intelligent species within the Imperium. Most Chirpers live in established reservations with only limited interchange with humans.

Chirpers are intelligent to a point (at the low end of the scale and ranges from a few points above animal levels to a few points below the average for humans), and have been known to speak.

Their intelligence is more of a rudimentary cunning, devoted to stealing shiny objects or intriguing gadgets. Since this is usually sets of keys, or shiny coins, or other small valuable items.
