PeaceKeeper Species PagesChavenlink,
In the Motobian system, there are four habitable planets, Filigo, Ego, Kigo
and Vorgo. All sub-species are loyal to preserving the system, which is under
attack from within by an overload of Power, a mystical force present in several
different species. If not brought to balance, the Powers would tear the system
apart, implode the sun and demolish every planet and colony in the system.
Within each colony, there are large families, known as Clans. Each Clan has a
name, by which its members are identified (ie: Si'hie d'Marca is of the clan
In all Gin sub-species, male Gin have a two-part name, consisting of a
two-letter fore-part and a three-letter aft-part, which is the same in all
members of a particular clan's generation (ie: Si'hie and his brother, Ho'hie
are from the same clan, the same family and the same generation). Female members
have the same name construction, but without the /'/ character.
The difference between the different Gin subspecies is fairly simple:
Homeplanet and wing-type. Fili-gin (see above image) have long, straight wings
with a hard, chitinous leading edge and are from Filigo. E-gin have
fan-foldable butterfly-like wings and are from Ego. Vor-gin have long,
straight wings that lack the Fili-gin leading edge (more like dragonfly wings)
and are from Vorgo. Ki-gin have hardly any wings at all and are from Kigo.
What wings the Ki-gin have are twisted and deformed, due to their planet's
immensly higher gravity.
