About Anshiri -

At first glance, you might see a cybernetic or biotech creature of some kind. But Anshiri are harder to spot at the basic once over. A small chamber will be contained on the body somewhere, that holds the actual race itself.

Appearance -

Anshiri will look like a sea slug, about the same size and shape. (About a foot in size. They will come in various girths, colors styles and shapes.)

Generally it’s agreed upon that Anshiri tend to have six eyes with sideways pupils. This allows them to see a wider color spectrum then other species (Think Mantis Shrimp or Octopuses).

This being said, due to their origin they are never seen for very long outside of their bodies -- They need to be kept in that liquid chamber mostly to survive. IF they do become fused or ‘hooked up’ to their machines tend to look like they’ve melded to them -- Some kind of bio-engineering to their own bodies like mechanical turned to organic. With this type of ‘fusion’ of the parts they are able to regenerate much like a wounded human.

Personality -

Anshiri are aggressively friendly, annoyingly so. They believe that everyone has a better side to them, and that no matter the past -- all can be trusted. In this aggressive friendship, it has made them easy to ‘abuse’ this trust from other races. They also strive to advance their technologies, and are far too curious about all the things around them.

Solar System Influence -

Anshiri being one of the 3 advanced technology races that openly share with others. With this extension of assistance and sharing to other races, it’s helped to bring advanced technology to the races without. Bringing everyone up to a general level of standard. Anshiri’s primary technology is Biotech, which incorporates organic construction. Due to their own personal research they are now considered the most evolved race -- Also being the key to evolution for other races. Thusly making them one of the major targets for biology research.

Civilization -

Since their origin as a single cell organism in the near frozen waters on a few planets and moons, it makes their civilization structure complicated. Before evolution, they were nothing but single cell organisms in frozen water. Once they evolved into a higher way of living they started their nomadic discovery. They assembled into tight knit groups and scientific cultures. Once they became nomadic they never stayed in the same waters for too long.  As a nomadic group, they would follow behind and support their chief and advisers -- typically tending to follow them in their wanderings. Up until there was the establishment of a bio-mechanical city. It was considered a major travel hub, smaller living cities still continued to move and travel.

Society -

Since they were a nomadic species that was found on various planets and moons with bodies of water. They have no true government system, rather the stationary Anshiri have a diplomatic system. However nomadic Anshiri have a tribal system with a main Chief and two advisers.

Interview with an Anshiri Representative -

Anshiri Representative: Gaspar Tao'Gakeshk

   'I welcome you friens Oui? How can Gaspar be helping you merveilleux people?'

   'Oui Gaspar is more than willing to share Anshiri History! Jus' ask wha chu wan' Ol' Gaspar to answer!'

   'Our Origins? Hohoho Tha's a simple wone, we came from all ova, but we like Callin' Neptune our home mon cheris, nice an' cold out there near tha edge of tha system'

   'Our par' in history, qu'est-ce que c'est, Is. . . complicated you coul' say, fo' a while we lived with the Shivan those won'erful people, but they always wan' to see wha' we made out of, Si pas fou'

   'Then you those Verga'an, always wan'in us to be weapons, ain' wha' we wanna be doin' ya know, far too many thin's to learn abou' the universe, can' go dealin' with no war'

   'Ooh Chil' the splicas and mutan's? We still tryin' to make 'em equal rights with all the other, how you say, Sentients? of this system, ain' no trouble to us none though'

   'Speakin' a which Mon Cheris I got some thin's to handle back home iffin' ya don' min''

*The interview ended but. . . none of the interviewers even remotely understood what he was going on about. . . they aren't even sure he shared any history*


Anshiri have an aggressive friendship with everyone, due to this they are dangerously trusting of other races.


Hello Neighbor! Humans to the Anshiri seem find humans as a sort of 'adaptable cousin' of sorts. Since humans adapt so easily to anything in their environment they find a sort of semblance with the species that they don't with other species. Just the same their friendliness toward the race tends to annoy the humans, and their trusting nature tends to let humans take advantage of them, over and over and over again.


We're not so bad. Anshiri find the Drevii to be good people deep down, but they have difficulty getting along with the drevii not because the way they're treated, but more because the drevii tend to be disgusted by the Anshiri's physical appearance.
Ooh is that the new model? Anshiri don't 'hate' the Cybernetics, and they aren't 'trying' to cause them harm, but to the Anshiri seeing a Cybernetic is like automotive enthusiasts going to a car show to see those rare and hard to get cars that have been decked out, and they have a tweak to 'take it out for a spin'. It makes them seem more like parasites than usual.


No, We're not food. Anshiri have nothing against Mytharii that could be counted as hostile, but they do tend to be cautious of the cat people, probably the only race that puts the Anshiri on edge.

Splicers -

Respect, and still useful. Anshiri find the Splicers to be a rather interesting race due to their origin, sure it was a war based origin, but the Anshiri think, despite the more weaponized Splicers thinking they're useless, that the splicers still have use even in everyday life. Which make the Anshiri one of the biggest Mutant/Splicer sympathizers in the system.

Mutants -

Are We Troubling You? Mutants tend to envy how respected the Anshiri are and the Anshiri aren't sure why themselves, is it something they did? Is their race at fault for why mutants are treated poorly? They just can't wrap their advanced minds around this mystery. Regardless Anshiri tend to want to help the Mutants fit in with society more than anything else.

Verga'an -

We ARE making sense! The Verga'an never knew the Anshiri existed or even acknowledged their existence until the sudden development of space technology by the Anshiri - that's when they had to give their full attention to this race. This of course made them the target of Verga'an research to try and weaponize the people and more about them. . . yet somehow Anshiri avoid having this happen to them. The very least the Anshiri act just as friendly to the race, they still don't understand their desire for conflict though.

Shivan -

We Thank Our Hosts. Even if they want to dissect the Anshiri people and experiment on their dead and their technology, they have a great level of thanks for being treated as scientific peers. This was only a stepping stone for them however, even the Shivan were surprised with what they were able to develop with their unique bio-mechanical sciences
