The Saanshakase of Saanshakase (Ley 2036) are a technologically primitive Minor Human Race with a humanoid appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Saanshakase has a total population of 500,000, about 90% of whom are native to the world. They are desert nomads who wander the planet in small tribal groups and have a TL–3 or so society. The nomads have an intense dislike of offworlders and shun contact whenever possible. They occasionally trade, but most attempts to set up any kind of deal end in violence.

There is some evidence of natural psionic ability among the native population, and those seen with such abilities appear to be among the priestly class of the various tribes. Exactly how well developed these abilities are is unknown. The natives are naturally adapted to their environment, though they appear to be evolved from an earlier branch of Humaniti than the Vilani and other transplanted human groups elsewhere in the Imperium. There own historical records (verbal and oral) seem to indicate that indeed the presence of this branch of Humaniti has been on Saanshakase for at least 50,000 years and likely much longer.
