Seti are the most widespread of the six sentient species. An insectoid species, the Seti have no formal empire, and their colonies develop a shared consciousness. Immigrants and exiles who leave the colony lose the shared consciousness but can reacquire it by integrating back into the same colony or into another Seti colony.
The Seti have no centralized government. They exist as a collection of independent states. Some of these states are incorporated into the Taes Empire. Others have formed alliances amongst themselves. Still others war with each other for control of territory and resource.
Seti are quick, with strong legs and small wings structured to propel them through the air. Seti nervous systems quickly process stimuli, allowing them to deftly maneuver and adjust momentum, while Seti eyes are able to process all Source Colors simultaneously. Seti warriors are renowned for their speed and agility.
Average height: 4 feet
Thick exoskeleton of all variety of colors
Multiple eyes and multiple small wings
Average life expectancy: 40 years
Seti live quick, short lives. They reach physical maturity around 2 years, with mastered control of their limbs and movement through physical and chromatic space. Seti are highly resilient to disease, but a few epidemics have been recorded throughout their history. The Seti species perseveres through their hardy nature and vast procreation.
The Set language is a marvel to hear, with its quick clicks, smacks and shouts. The language sounds as tribal and visceral as the Seti people generally behave. While the language is simple to study, many non-Seti struggle to reproduce the sounds and to keep up cognitively with the fast, fluid conversations that Seti have within their native tongue.
Seti and Achroite are generally indifferent to each other. They fought together during the Second Empires War but since then have had little regular contact.
Ancient Seti deified the Aurorans and viewed them as omens of good fortune. Ship crews treated their Auroran as a mascot or pet whose presence ensured good fortune for the trip ahead. Modern Seti do not hold to these beliefs but the strong bond that was made persists to this day.
Seti despise the Regunds. These two species are constantly raiding one another’s territories, though never in any official capacity. A small sect of Seti maintain diplomatic and commercial relations, but it is rare for Seti to interact positively with Regunds.
Seti war with themselves more than they war with any of the other species combined. These territorial disputes are some of the bloodiest conflicts in the galaxy today.
Seti views on the Taes differ widely. Some Seti detest what the Taes Empire have done to them, while others work closely with the Taes in both military and commerce.
Seti remain appreciative of the Unysyn’s help as a mediator. Unysyn are looked to as a voice of calm reason in the midst of Seti power struggles.
Seti are skilled fighters, with access to an arsenal of chromatically-empowered equipment. Seti combatants range from vicious warriors to stealthy assassins to tactical manipulators and more. They use their swift movement and color shifting to overwhelm their opponents.
As a Seti specializes within a chromatic set of equipment, she will gain access to powerful set bonuses to showcase her focused training. However, the Seti who pursues a hybrid loadout will never find himself at a disadvantage.
