The Miyavine of Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124) are an extinct Minor Human Race with a human appearance and were technologically developing sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Miyavine were a non-starfaring Minor Human Race native to Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124), who are now extinct. Imperial researchers are not sure why the Miyavine died out.

Physical sophontology[edit]

The Miyavine averaged 1.8 meters in height and 100 kilograms in weight. Humans have a conventional carbon-water based biochemistry. Humans use a conventional respiration cycle consisting of Oxygen-nitrogen inhalant and Carbon dioxide exhalant. The Miyavine homeworld was located on Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124).

Archaeological Sophontology[edit]

Most of the cultural and historical information about the Miyavine comes from Zeyman’Ikaswu, a major complex of ruins dating from c.-19,500. Zeyman’Ikaswu is now almost encircled by the modern metropolis of High Peak. The ruins exhibit remarkable architecture, including massive truncated pyramids of a pinkish marble-like stone, and huge stone hoops, whose purpose was unknown. Many buildings are covered with ornate frescoes hundreds of metres long. These are of particular interest, as experts are unable to identify several of the creatures depicted in them.

Major historical events timeline[edit]

The Miyavine were a Minor Human Race transplanted to Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124) by the Ancients. Medurma contains an Ancient site. Damage to Medurma during the Final War was relatively slight and the Miyavine survived that conflict intact as a species. By about -19,000~ they had reached TL–4. Miyavine had more or less died out, or went extinct, by -18,700. The reasons for this are unknown, but current theories include a genetically programmed "timebomb", which caused the Miyavine to become sterile after a certain number of generations.

Linguistic sophontology[edit]

Very little is conclusively known about the Miyavine language. Imperial researchers at Zeyman’Ikaswu are currently studying the now extinct Miyavine language.

Societal sophontology[edit]

The Miyavine reached a population of about 75 to 100 million by –20,000. The Miyavine built extensive settlements at Mid-Level and High-Level, and extensive catacombs were dug into the mountain ranges where the stone was sufficiently soft. Dirigibles were used for long-range transport between the high mountain peaks, where the only habitable places on the world exist.
