Native Sophont: Traypih[edit]

A race of squid-like sophonts who dwell in the large, shallow lagoon-like seas of Divkar, thriving in the warm upper layers and the abundant mud flats. The Traypih are in the process of developing full intelligence and are thus under the intense and watchful eye of the IISS. Proto-sophonts.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Divkar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

Divkar was lucky. It had air and water, a moderate population and a limited technology by IISS interdiction. The main city was often visited by tourists and scientist surveying the Traypih population. Because of its low tech level virus had no impact to the economy. Even vice versa, with the recontact by the Last Sane steady growing trade allowed them to build a class C tradeport. As with the fall of the Imperium the IISS is also interdict gone, and refugees from the barren worlds settled here. Each village sends a group of representatives to the annual municipal moot. The barnstorms and votes are distributed over a radio network around the whole planet. The most unusual thing about the representatives is certainly, that once they are elected and send to the moot, they take their seat as long as they have the vote of confidence of their village. If they lose it, they have to leave the planet by law.
