Adherent Why do you want to play as the alien species? Adherent are a species I see extremely rarely, and their design is extremely appealing to me. The moment I found out about them looking at the wiki, I've been interested in knowing more about them. What are some example names for the alien species? Robot Maintainer 42-B Engine Monitor H-56 Chemical Preparator 11-BC Summarize what you know about the species. Adherents are a species of crystalline machines, created to be the servants of a long-extinct "Creators", before their home system was wiped by a solar flare known as The Scream, leaving Adherent confused, disoriented, and alone. Being artificial beings, they have near to no culture of their own, with the only remnant of their creators being the strict set of laws each adherent is forced to follow, known as the protocol. Now led by Core System Traffic Control Hub 37-Q, they explore the area surrounding their homeworld, Canon, a zone known as the Holding Pattern, in hopes of finding traces of their lost creators. The adherent are divided into three factions, each with their own interpretation of the Protocol. Loyalists are fully devoted to the memory of their creators, dedicating themselves to their duties and embracing their lives as servants. They disapprove of those choosing to carve their own paths, considering it to be 'disrespectful' towards their creators. Loyalists are by far the most powerful faction, led by Traffic Control Hub itself Preservers prefer to leave the worlds they explore untouched, and pristine, recording and indexing them for their creators, or whoever would take their place. They are the most passive faction, and the most likely to be found with other spacefaring races like humanity. Mourners are an extreme version of the Preserver faction, who dedicate themselves to recounting the tragedy of the planet they orbit, requesting visitors not to disturb it. Separatists aim for the abandonment of Canon, and wish to establish a new order, prioritizing their needs as survivors over the hopeless search for their masters. However, the protocol forbids excessive violence, and they do this somewhat covertly. However, Adherents are generally polite beings, devoted to their duties, and finding satisfaction in fulfilling their purpose. However, the protocol is far from exhaustive, and Adherents tend to lock up completely when placed in unfamiliar, or conflicting situations, as they attempt to fit it into the protocol.
