The Gonzans are a Minor Non-Human Race.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Gonzan’s resemble Humaniti barely in being bipedal and mammalian, but the resemblance ends there. The are hexadigital in feet and hands, and both have fearsome claws. They have a short elephantine trunk, like a tapir, with boar-like tusks. Their eyes are black and pupiless with a defensive nictating membrane, and covered from head to toe-claw in a thick coat of slate gray and black fur due to the planet’s fierce storms and frigid winters. Gonzans are omnivores, and when game meat is scarce make due on eating the few edible shrubs and bushes.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Gonzans had existed at TL–1 on their mountain topped islands and plateaus peacefully and were only made aware of the collapse through oral histories recalling when the Third Imperium Humans of the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service xeno-biology base here passed away between 1160 and 1165. The Gonzans began working with smelting of mined metals, making bronze and iron tools achieving TL–2 before RCES made contact with them in late 1204, early 1205.

Intermittent contact during the collapse with stranded "Zhukh’ shabir" (Star climbers) gave them insights to make their own metal working, and forge tools from abandoned examples reaching TL–2 in the 1100’s.

Despite their technological backwardness, they have enjoyed an enlightened society of representational democracy when 3rd Imperial Scouts had them interdicted in 350.
