The Acara of Carasan (Far Home 1126) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically developing sophonts

Description (Specifications)[edit]

They are semi-aquatic omnivores, preferring temperate marshland environments. Acara display a variety of body shapes dependent on the role that they fill within society. All, however, share some basic physiological elements. All have a single large foot with a coarse sole that uses muscular waves to move and all interact with their environment via long manipulatory tentacles. A “saddle”, a residual shell, covers part of the upper body, a narrow frill surrounds the head, and three short feeding tentacles surround the mouth.

Characteristics[edit]

  • Strength
  • Dexterity
  • Endurance
  • Intelligence
  • Education
  • Social

Psychology & Philosophy[edit]

Acara have a caste-based society with strictly defined roles and defined social limitations for individuals based on their body type. They are slow and calculating, they are evasive and rather defensive, and it is difficult to reach a firm agreement with one. They are extremely orderly, and once they have set their minds on something they tend to be single-minded in pursuit of their goal. Acara are intensely aware of status and rank and can appear arrogant towards those they deem to be of a lower social level. They find it difficult to associate with humans – by nature they are far too chaotic and disorganised.

Primal Drives[edit]

Species psychology is driven by factors common to many sophonts:

  • Acquisition (stemming from the need to gather adequate nutrition),
  • Preservation (derived from the need to continue their personal existence), and
  • Perpetuation (the urge to continue the species).

Behaviours[edit]

  • Philosophy: Connectivity. Everything is connected, nothing is disconnected.
  • Theology: Pantheism, many gods, and panantheism (everything is god)
  • Ethics: Inner relativism: in any given situation there is a right and a wrong. The individual must determine what that is.
  • Psychology: Co-effective consciousness, this is the concept that we are all inter-connected. My psychology is impacted by yours.
