CHARACTERS

SENTINEL
Mechanical, self-replicating, policing drone, also known as The Aerons. Stronger varieties come with shields.

QUAD
Created by the Atlas & meant as a security protocol, but the Atlas is losing control.

CORRUPTED DRONE
The war between the Sentinels, Vy'keen & Gek came to an end when the Korvax injected their nanite clusters into the Gek spawning pools, rewriting their DNA to turn their violent lust for power into greed.

BI-PED WALKER
They were confronted by the Vy'keen alliance, who nearly won, but were betrayed & attacked by the Gek while weakened.

BIOLOGICAL HORROR
A burrowing monstrosity that does not take kindly to you harvesting their Whispering Eggs. Proceed with caution.

SHIP DRONE
The Gek now worked for the sentinels & the Korvax worshipped them. The Vy'keen still hate them & kill all they can.

KORVAX
A highly intellectual mechanical species from another galaxy. Once enslaved by the Gek.

GEK

An amphibious merchant species native to the water-rich planet Balaron. Used to be thoroughly evil until the Korvax changed their DNA with nanite clusters. Now just greedy instead.
