Akaylans are the primary species of the Akaylan Empire. They are an old and proud species, the rulers of one of the great stellar nations. They rule their client species with an iron fist, and seek to expand their empire’s boundaries to the limits of the Twin Spirals and beyond.
All Akaylans possess psionic abilities of some sort. Some possess great power, and are usually among the leaders of the species. Akaylans are ruthless and seek domination, over the Twin Spirals and one another. Akaylan society is highly meritocratic, and ability usually allows one to go further than class or connections. Hierarchy rules, but the hierarchy is prone to sudden shifts as old players fall away and new, stronger ones take charge.
Akaylans appear to glow from within, because of the unique biological processes involved in channeling their innate psionic power. All Akaylans possess telepathy and communicate exclusively with it.
Surprisingly, the species accounts for only a small percentage of the population of the Akaylan Empire. This is due to their slow rate of reproduction. The typical Akaylan Empire operation consists of a single Akaylan in command of a number of client species.
