The Souggvuez of Talon (Deneb 2704) are a technologically sophisticated Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Souggvuez are a Minor Race native to Talon (Deneb 2704).


Descended from carnivore/pouncer stock, the Souggvuez are slightly larger than humans but more delicate of frame. They are covered in tough scales and have a predator’s teeth for self-defense. Their skeleton is asymmetrical, with four arms, five front legs and three stronger back legs. They have poor vision and no sense of smell but are able to sense electrical fields.

They have a long developmental period, not reaching adulthood until aged 30. Physical aging begins about 20 years later and mental aging when they are much, much older.

The Souggvuez have, in common with much native life on Talon, multiple genders:

  • Hatcher
  • Designer
  • Hunter
  • Worker
  • Explorer


The Souggvuez form charismatic societies and prefer practical training over formal education

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Some members of the race do travel, but there are no off-world colonies despite nearby worlds with similar environments.

99.999% of the Souggvuez died during the fall of the United Followers of Augurgh in 1143
