In-Game Biography[edit | edit source]
Primal in their ways, the cold-blooded Sakkra from the planer Sssla seem uncouth and unenlightened to many of the other races. However, their hulking forms and rustic rituals belay an enduring memory that has helped them reach the stars.
They are lorded over by the Hierarch, a long-lived progenitor, and in very literal sense, the father of much of the Brood.
His main concern is for his offspring, whether acquiring colonies for them to reproduce or securing resources necessary for their survival. It follows that the Hierarch adopts a familiar and fatherly tone towards those he regards as allies. To the Sakkra everyone is either part of the family or a hated enemy.
Website Biography[edit | edit source]
The Sakkra are an aggressive, competitive race that fight to survive on crowded planets with little room for formal laws. They are a physically imposing race that are determined to prove themselves as worthy adversaries against any opposition in the galaxy. The strong are the only ones who survive on Sssla, the Sakkra home world, where there are regular fights to the death in the streets. The only way to stand out in the massive Sakkra population is to show great strength and to defeat any challengers to your claims.
The Sakkra believe that the Mother-God and Father-God bore the first generation of Sakkra many millions of years ago. These first children formed the oldest tribes which Sakkra still claim as ancestors, yet the Mother and Father were so controlling that the first tribes united under a Hierarch to battle them for control. It is said that the battle lasted three days and when it was over, the gods were dead the Sakkra had united victoriously under their first Hierarch. They are a race which fondly remembers the brutal destruction of their own creators, whoever they were long ago. The government of the Sakkra is a feudal system composed of various tribes, headed by a Hierarch which represents them on the intergalactic stage.
The government and the Sakkra people as a whole are called the Brood. It is an established fact that all Sakkra Hierarchs die on their throne. No one walks away peacefully and regime changes are an especially bloody time in Sakkra civilization. The Sakkra military makes up for what the Sakkra lack in diplomacy skills. Sakkra soldiers benefit from natural intimidation skills and a lifetime of internal warfare on their home planets. The Sakkra have a massive population which continues to grow at exponential rates, new planets are necessary to support their population.
