The Endimyon of Endimyon (Deneb 0516) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a non-humanoid appearance and technologically primitive sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Arkaeides as they call themselves. The Arkaeides are massive quadrupedal centaurs, looking both lizardish and insectoid in appearance. They are also one of the largest sentient races ever discovered, ranging up to three meters in length for a full grown adult, and up to 4000 kg in mass. They live in the world's steamy swamps, living on paddy agriculture and swimmers raised in pens.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Arkaeides are a gerontocracy of sorts, as the species lives up to 300 standard years. Status is accorded to size, as the race grows throughout their lives. The larger the individual, the more status they are accorded, and the rulers are corpulent and massive creatures according to observers. The world is interdicted, as per Regency Law, by the RISS, who maintains a pair of scout cruisers in orbit at all times to prevent off-world contact.
