The Nind of 146-685 (Diaspora 3004) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a non-humanoid appearance and technologically developing sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Interdicted during the Third Imperium's early unification days with the Solomani Confederation, the Nind (as they call themselves) are a homeopathic bipedal hirsute simian race, and ignored the Rebellion entirely with unconcern.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Covenanter’s Scout Service, and later RCES discovered them to be long lived with a fairly low birth rate, mating only twice in their lifetimes, a span of a century and a half. They have achieved the pinnacle of their society at TL–4, and have inexplicably since the collapse slowly increased in population. The arboreal dwelling Nind are vegetarians. The Nind may scuffle and quarrel, but none has ever killed another, nor do they have a word for war. The Nind have a matriarchal participatory democracy among their adult childbearing females, an oddity to newcomers here. The males are not emancipated, nor allowed the right to vote. The Nind long ago settled amongst themselves that the upbringing of the young, selection of mates, and decisions of what to eat and what was useful belonged to the female members of their race, and the males could tend to all the non-thinking chores and work.


This race is primarily located in the following areas:
