Alkainans are badger-like humanoids with metallic fur who have recently taken up residence on the arboreal planet of Volunisp in Near Space, somewhat near the Veskarium. Alkainan mythology speaks of their home world, a realm of naturally occurring metallic spires somewhere in the Vast, and how they fled a “great evil” that none can specify.
Current alkainan society consists of three castes: the byggja, custodians of the Volunisp settlements; the leita, who take to the stars to meet and trade with other species; and the matriarchs, female alkainan leaders and ministers of marriage and other spiritual matters. While most matriarchs remain on Volunisp, a few travel with leita on their chrome-plated starships.
Part of an alkainan''s physiology depends on the types of metals consumed by their ancestors on their home world, granting unusual coloring to their fur and unique defenses.
