The Lurent of Borlund (Deneb 1406) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically advanced sophonts.

Biology (Physical Sophontology)[edit]

Their two flexible legs are capable of raising their bodies up two meters and their two tentacles are another two meters long. The useless vestigial tail is often mistaken for an ear flap. Their mouths are lined with sharp teeth but they lack vocal chords.

Their fleet of at least 250 wandering planetoid starships are scattered across Deneb Sector at any one time. Lurent Ships can be of up to 3 kilometres or so in diameter, or at least a billion dTons, making them one of the Imperiums Megastructures to be wondered at.
