Sapient Species: Rako’tei ( Rako - Tay )
Planet of Origin: Rako’tei Prime
- Political Owner: Multiple clans split up into different groups
System of Origin: Rouqe’jah
Location: Outer Tenebrarum
Astronomy: Rako’tei Prime , as it is called by others, is a planet that is tidally locked to its local star. Thus, one side is shrouded in eternal darkness, and the other is covered in sizzling sunlight. The geological wildlife of this world is completely a planet-wide jungle, with a number of oasises and interwoven lakes.
The planet has three moons, each that have been terraformed to a state that they appear similar to Rako’tei Prime . They are used as hunting grounds by the Rako’tei, mainly for the creatures they brought into the planet as prey.
Geography: Rako’tei Prime is a planet-wide jungle, tainted with steaming lakes and sizzling jungles. They is still active volcanic activity here, with lakes of boiling lava branching from the active vents. For landmasses, they are often seen with soaring mountains, sand dunes, beaches, and other exotic materials. Most notably are their radioactive lakes that appear in the area of Diore’phea, where heat accumulates in large amounts near volcanic vents. Diora’phea has a unique predatory creature that ingests certain liquids that can be refined into boiling spit. Young hunters are given the trial of hunting one of these creatures, and skinning its hide.
Spending their lives hunting in multiple types of climates, the Rako’tei are fierce hunters of strength and honor. Evolving on a world that was tidally locked, mainly in the night time zone of Rako’tei Prime , they developed infrared vision to hunt their prey. At one point they migrated to the more hotter climates, but with the influence of infrared vision, they were unable to see in the intense heat and radiation. To counter this, they developed bio-masks that change the specific scopes of ultraviolet light and individualize heat radiating in warmer climates. Because of their intent to hunt prey, they made the masks so that they could see organic matter only, excluding flora.
When hunting prey, they developed a way to modify their hues by accumulating or dispersing pigments within their skin cells, they also rely on how structural changes affect how light reflects off their skin. This means they can blend in to specific environments when needed, though their skin color in general is a mix between a tan and dark green.
Rako’tei appear as reptilian-like humanoids with thin legs and harms that render themselves quick and agile hunters. They don’t have any visible tails, but a small one that possibly indicated an evolutionary descent from their more aquatic ancestors. They have ridged heads, with 2 eyes on either side that see in full infrared light. Though the bio-masks they use render out leaves and shrubbery to prey.
Reproductive: Rako’tei reproduce sexually, and can produce about 1 - 2 infants. Since their reproductive organs are mainly internally stationary, they often do not wear clothes while taking the role as citizen. Hunters, however, are always equipped with technology that is available to them.
Diet: The most notable fact of the Rako’tei is their Hematophagous diet, which consists of blood. Similar to vampire bats, they transplant the blood of their kills into their own veins, along with which come all the nutrients they need. There is some religious influence by this, mainly that the Rako’tei believe their preys essence is now apart of them now. The preys blood carries all the skills and strength, which Rako’tei hunters obtain to become stronger.
Behaviour: Rako’tei are naturally aggressive beings, but have no intent to conquer others. After they kill their prey, they have been known to collect trophies from them, usually their bones. They turn heads into trophies, usually strapping them to their belts by their hair. Most of the time, they’ll just take the skulls, clean them, and place them somewhere for safe keeping. With other accessories, they’ll turn smaller animal skulls into antiques, then attach them to necklaces and wrist bands. To be more unique, they’ll modify their bio-masks with technology, giving them more advantages.
Government: Currently, there are multiple different clans of hunters and camps on Rako’tei Prime , even on other off-world locations. Not all of these clans are allied, and will occasionally clash with each other on different accounts. The most notable clashes that happen often are the Jungle Hunter clan and the Phantom Hunter clan. The jungles hunters are the ruling society and hunter group in Rako’tei culture, with a council of their own. The Phantom Hunter clan, however, evolved on the night time zone of the planet. They developed a bio-mask that grants them night vision instead, able to see prey in complete darkness.
Besides the multiple hunter clans, Rako’tei Prime is led by a hierarchy of individual council members. They lead the Jungle Hunter clan, the Elite clan, and the Tracker clan.
