I enjoy alien species as a whole, and Unathi culture is especially interesting, with their unique, tribal mindset. What are some example names for the alien species? Kresh Vrasis Seres Ishtar Summarize what you know about the species. Unathi are a reptilian species hailing from the planet of Moghes, a once verdant world which was turned nearly inhospitable due to an unknown disaster caused by a species known as the "Precursors" Because of the diverse, and generally dangerous environments they live in, Unathi are hardy, and diverse, fractured into various clans, each unique in their way of life, and interpretation of their faith. The various regions of Moghes have also caused the development of unique traditions and cultures; Those living on the poles are generally the most open, and advanced, thanks to their access to off-world technology and trade. On the other hand, those living in the savannas or desert are hardier, due to their environments' generally hostile conditions, and Unathi hailing from the secluded mountains of the Diamond Peak are isolationist, with painted faces, and brands to show their origins. All of this has led to them being extremely divided, with near to no central government, outside of a coalition known as the Moghes Hegemony, composed of the Kaahnepos (Clan leaders) of the most important city-states. Yet, even the Hegemony is less of a ruling government, and more of an alliance meant to promote trade and diplomacy with other species, to improve economy among the Unathi on Moghes. Along with their clans, however, another of the main pillars of their society is their faith. Unlike human religions focusing on a higher power, Unathi focus on themselves, their species, and the world around them. There are five main faiths on Moghes, each with their own views on what Unathi should do in order to grow and thrive as a species, ranging from the progressive followers of the Fruitful Lights, focused on inventing and creating, to the more conflict oriented followers of the Grand Stratagem, each of them has a unique view upon the world, though, no matter their methods, their efforts are focused on bettering the lives of the Unathi, and creating a better world for their species to live in. Clan Concept A relatively small clan hailing from the deserts of Moghes, clan Ishtar survives thanks to a collectivist mentality, forming a limited, yet tightly-knit community, where the clan's needs will take precedence over the individual. As believers of the Grand Stratagem, they believe life's conflicts should be overcome together, instead of alone. Their settlement in one of the many underground bunkers peppering the desert has led to them becoming quite isolated, though They will happily offer shelter to the nomads who may stumble upon them. Despite their benevolent nature, however, those who are deemed too egoistical for the clan's needs will be harshly exiled, expelled from their bunker to survive alone, in the harsh deserts above.
