Historical Data[edit]

Hamilcar was settled early in the Rule of Man by a cultural group from Terran Polynesia. A few inhabitants dwell on small islands but most live in underwater domes or mobile semi-submersible cities. Hamilcar's primitive oceans were seeded with Terran sea life, which are now dominant species. Terran dolphins were also transplanted here before they were made sentient.

  • Now that sentient dolphins also exist, populations of both types are found on Hamilcar, coexisting with relative ease. Two million of the world's two billion inhabitants are sentient dolphins; their representatives enjoy associate status in the planetary government. Most of the humans live in ship-cities and consequently share some of the dolphin attitude toward ownership of property.
  • In an astonishing political coup, the dolphins have put one of their own into power on Hamilcar. The dolphin, Keekiiteep, is widely acclaimed as a wise ruler, even on other worlds of the subsector. Of course, politics is not a typical dolphin interest, but getting sophonts to cooperate and live harmoniously is a worthy goal, even to a dolphin. The heritage of the easy-going Polynesian culture makes the human population more receptive to Keekiiteep's guidance.
