Native Sophont : Hamaran[edit]

Homeworld of the Hamaran, Tethys is today considered sacred and only the Haja'qi (priests of racial knowledge) are allowed to dwell upon its surface. Each year millions of Hamaran and humans come in pilgrimage to visit the beautifully preserved buildings and temples and to taste the sea. Most Hamaran consider it their sacred duty to visit Tethys at least once before they die.

History and background[edit]

A population of humans and other interstellars maintains the starport.
