The Kisthdra are a Minor Non-Human Race with a non-humanoid appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Kisthdra were a technologically advanced society, who existed during the Vilani Imperium, and regressed. When they encountered the Vilani, the Kisthdra suffered a "Favored Society Effect Inverse" and their culture became insular and withdrawn.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Kisthdra first ventured beyond their system in NAFAL ships on expeditions expected to take hundreds of years. Instead, their crews returned home aboard Vilani starliners less than a decade after they left. The realization that the stars had already been conquered, and that they belonged to someone else, crushed the collective spirit of Kisthdra society: ...they rarely venture beyond their world even now.
