The Saie are an extinct Minor Non-Human Race with a unknown appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Saie were a mysterious, non-human civilization which vanished approximately 3,700 years ago, believed to have been based in the Caledon Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.

Physiology & Environment[edit]

The Saie were non-humanoids. From evidence collected, it is believed that the Saie were upright bipeds of carnivore/killer stock; their homeworld is unknown, and no depictions of their race have come down to contemporary archeologists intact.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Saie vanished approximately 3,700 years ago. Evidence of the Saie presence is slim at best; a few artifacts (most notably the starship found at Crash Jura on Glenshiel (Reaver's Deep 1912) have been discovered, and a few ancient Vilani records mention the existence of a small empire of five or six worlds which can be tentatively identified as that of the Saie. Most knowledge of their activities comes from the myths and legends of the Yn-tsai of Tsanesi (Reaver's Deep 1711) and the Lhshana of Lhshami (Reaver's Deep 2111), both races native to the Caledon subsector, where the empire seems to have flourished.

Archeologists are currently attempting to learn more of this mysterious race, but have met little success in their efforts to discover who the Saie were and where they came from.

Culture & Society[edit]

Few details, beyond their warlike nature, are known about the Saie - most of the existing information being drawn from legends told by some of the sector's indigenous minor races. The search for further evidence of this culture has occupied the interest of a great number of the Principality of Caledon's archeologists.

Government & Politics[edit]

Technology & Trade[edit]

They appear to have acquired jump-drive technology from the Vilani by way of a renegade Vilani governor searching for allies during the upheavals prior to the Interstellar Wars. The Saie are thought to have been warlike, highly combative, and prone to internal strife; it is believed that their presence on any particular world may have been limited to only a few hundred administrators and soldiers dominating a native planetary population. This theory has been advanced to explain the complete breakdown of their empire and their disappearance from history in the wake of an evidently devastating civil war.
