Makaras are hostile aliens that cross the interstellar distances to ravage planets. They're 4 meters tall, massing approximately 575 kg. Intelligent cold-blooded amphibians, with hemocyanin based physiology that allows activity even at below-freezing temperatures. They're equipped with weapon technologies they scavenge from their fallen enemies.
He's Jorag Kosh, kergan, ex-mercenary, combat specialist and security officer of the ISV Serendipity.
Kergans are a mighty and fearless race with reptile looks, herculean strength and a feisty temper.
Their homeworld, Ragash, orbits in a twin star system. This heavily influences the bodies and souls of the kergans. On one side obliging this race to develop a natural resistance to radioactivity through the thick layer of scales that cover their bodies, allowing them to dwell on the scorching landscapes of Ragash. While on the other hand led them to consider life with merciless predatory eyes. The days on Ragash are indeed marked by one sun chasing the other, in a fratricidal loop that serves as the ultimate confirmation of a life divided among hunters and preys.
Honor, meritocracy and ambition rule one of the most harsh and competitive societies of the renown space. Since their birth the Kergan citizens grow in a habitat of all-out competition, uncompromising punishment and archaic customs, often labelled as barbaric by other races. The natives of Ragash laugh with pride at such labels, knowing that “talk is cheap” and that respect was never denied to anyone who proved himself worthy to a Kergan.

Enterprising, ambitious and heterogeneous, humans are known to be proud and peculiarly adaptive. They are among the last races to have been incorporated in the interracial community of the stars. It didn’t take long before they got to know themselves for their explorative nature and their innate charisma, which ended up gathering some suspicious looks.
Careless of these doubts, humans have nevertheless proven to be powerful allies and clever teammates. Their society evolved in a thick multilayered web of political institutions, powerful corporations, scientific knowledge and philosophical open-mindedness; which constantly attracts a lot of alien species for it’s inspiring environment. This makes the human society probably of the most hospitable and interracial of all the known space.
Wherever they reach for, humans end up being a catalyst for change and an accelerator of revolutionary ideas. This hasn’t always been positive in the past, surrounding them with an aura of unpredictability.
