The Kargol of Kargol (Leonidae 1205) are a Minor Human Race with a human appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Physiology & Environment[edit]

The Kargol are descended from Neanderthals who were genetically engineered to better survive on their homeworld, including the ability to digest local flora and fauna, and larger eyes capable of seeing further into the infrared spectrum, due to the world's dim red sun.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Kargol are the head of a small 14-world confederation in Leonidae Sector. They pride themselves on the high technology their confederation supports, particularly their genetic engineering skills.

Calendar & Timekeeping[edit]

The Kargol pay little attention to the day-night cycle, especially since they see equally well at night. They usually sleep 11 hours out of 38, dividing this sleep into short naps spread throughout the day. The average kargol workday is about 10 hours long, with the rest of the day being devoted to home life and recreation. Kargol communities work and play throughout the day and night. Different workplaces have different scheduled hours, and nothing operates on a standard timetable.
