The Thyrna-Shae are a small,
but ancient and noble race. They seem to be related genetically to Humans.
Neither race currently has an explanation for this. They are very full of
pride in their achievements. They have great minds and are quick to find
solutions to complex problems. They are also very emotional. They can be
quick to anger and slow to calm down. They are not to be underestimated
because of their small stature. They are found on many worlds. Records of
their expansion and colonization are lost. They were surprised to find
others of their race in other systems.

Thyrna-Shae, Tweluleth Renegade
Renegades are a group that split off from the race during the war with the
Dyrth. They have a very gypsy-like culture. They also have less compassion
for one another and less for other races. They are very stoic.
After the war with the Dyrth, the Thyrna-Shae Dominion was in chaos.
The bio-weapons used by the Dyrth were killing billions of people. A group
of the returning soldiers rebelled against the Dominion. They mutinied
onboard the great naval ships. They became outcasts. These wandering groups
eventually became known as the Tweluleth.
Thyrna-Shae, Cedeforthy Variant
The Thyrna-Shae on the
primitive world of Cedeforthy, in the Earth Federation Protectorate, are
different from the other races of Thyrna-Shae. There is much speculation
that they are descended from a much older starfaring age.
Many people were surprised to find a race of Thyrna-Shae living on a
primitive world so far from the other Thyrna-Shae worlds. The Cedeforthy
Variant is distinct from the other two known groups. It is not known when
they first settled this world, but they were there when Humans first arrived
They have a Corporate Dominion. This government is run like a large
corporation. All Thyrna-Shae citizens are considered property of the
government. There is no poverty or starvation on their worlds. This may seem
very oppressive, but it works for them. Their lives are generally forfeit
upon the whim of the government. They receive a form of work-credit for work
done. It is similar to the Federation system.
The Culture of the
The Thyrna-Shae have a diverse and ancient culture. They have very
little interaction with the other races. They are reclusive by nature. They
prefer to live their lives peacefully, something that is hard to do
anywhere. They have one common language which they have regulated to keep it
They have gone through many phases in the arts. They are currently
in a retro-historical mode. They are rediscovering knot-work and massive
stone carving. They tend to look a bit over-dressed to Humans. They like
colorful clothes and fine jewelry.
The Thyrna-Shae excel in the sciences. They tend towards Psionics
and gadgetry. They love to create new devices. In space exploration, they
are currently not expanding, having isolationists in the government at this
time. They did expand once, before their last fall; this accounts for the
Thyrna-Shae that are sometimes found on fallen worlds outside the frontier.
They are very advanced in medicine. They have fast recovery
Auto-Docs and floating robotic Automed units for battles. There is little in
the way of defects or malformations in them. They fix any genetic problems
as they occur.
There are two major religions that the Thyrna-Shae ascribe
to. They have a wary respect for each other. They are the Children of the
One, and the Old Faith. The Children of the One believe in one God, that of
nature. God to them is neither good nor evil, but something that mortal
minds cannot understand. To them, God is, and that is enough. The followers
of the Old Faith worship a large collection of gods, goddesses, spirits, and
ancient heroes. The star systems of the Thyrna-Shae are named for the gods
and goddesses. It is a complex faith involving what some call magic and
others a form of Psionics.
