The Lhshana of Lhshami (Reaver's Deep 2111) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically developing sophonts.

Physiology & Environment[edit]

Descended from omnivore/gatherer stock, the Lhshana are small (1.2 meters in height), trilaterally symmetrical intelligent sophonts. Tentacular appendages over each leg given them excellent manipulative abilities; a sensory cluster on each tentacle provides organs for sight, hearing, smell, taste, and infrared vision for each limb. The mouth is located ventrally, and serves only for ingestion; breathing is through a number of breathing orifices located in pairs under each tentacle.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The pre-civilized Lhshana were dominated by the Saie during the Saiean empire period, and traditions of their actions are found in Lhshana folklore and mythology. Civilization on Lhshami was given a boost, first by technology introduced by the Saie, and later by human Reavers who visited the world during the Long Night.

Psychology & Philosophy[edit]

An unaggressive, contemplative race, the Lhshana have enjoyed a fairly stable civilization for over 2,000 years, and had achieved some elements of TL–9 by the time they were contacted by Principality of Caledon merchant explorers in 598. They have never shown any great interest in space or exploration, and had not invented any sort of space flight at the time of the first Caledonian contact.
