The Hamaran are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Hamaran are a Minor Race native to Tethys (Dagudashaag 1114).

Physiology and Ecology[edit]

Hamaran grow to a length of about 60cm from snout to prehensile tail and are one of the smallest intelligent races within the Imperium. They are bipedal and have two powerful arms which end in extremely dexterous paws with five digits arranged in a star-like symmetry. They have two pairs of eyes, each of which is capable of independent focus and movement. They are as intelligent as humans, though with a much higher curiosity factor.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Archaeological and Cultural Sophontology: Originally descended from island dwelling hunter gatherers, at the time of their contact by the Vilani the Hamaran had reached a stable TL–5 society but were near to collapse due to population problems. Because of their apparently natural affinity with electronics, Hamaran were allowed to return with the survey team. Within a hundred years, small settlements of Hamaran were established throughout the sector, though they never colonized a world on their own, preferring to partner with humans in their endeavors.

Most Hamaran today are to be found working in medicine or in the electronic or mechanical industries and a great many have become engineers amidst the Free Traders.

During the Psionic renaissance the Hamaran displayed strong taboos against psionics and to this day have an intense racial hatred of psionic users. While extremely passive and gentle it should be noted that the Hamaran display extremely violent behavior when confronted by arachnid-like creatures.
