Native Lifeform: Gaarkh[edit]

There is currently much debate as to the status of one of the local lifeforms, the seal-like Gaarkh. The creatures are extremely violent, possibly psychopathic, and all peaceful attempts to try and prevent their migrational, suicidal attacks on the cities have failed. Many sophontologists believe that the Gaarkh are a sophontic species, but conclusive results have yet to be proven within the greater scientific community.

History and background[edit]

A Bwap/Scanian colony, the planet is extremely rich in aquaculture. The government is based on the Bwap model and is extremely frustrating for visiting humans.

A recent attack apparently showed the Gaarkh using primitive clubs for the first time and the local Scanian Sanhedra wishes to call in the Scout service to re-evaluate their status. This course has been rejected by the Bwap government who appear willing to force the race into extinction.
