And a Kawenu Mercenary (wearing the standard Battle Suit and a Communications Headset).

Hey look!
It's Amuyeli! (Pre-Kawenu-nuke-ification).
Post-Kawenu-nuke-ification would just have grey islands and heavy cloud cover instead.
Also, it apparently has a moon now, which shall henceforth be known as Nvya (I just got caught up in making the picture and did not realize I had never mentioned their planet having a moon, so now it does).

Since it seems to be the newest trend, the Kawenu are gonna have to have come to Earth at one point in our history.
Many Kawenu used to be (before the Last Kawenu War) quite power mad.
One Kawenu in particular was even more power mad than any before, or after him.
The name of this Kawenu?
Huitzilopochtli.
Having been born with a rare genetic abnormality which made his skin color blue, like a Kawona, instead of the normal Kawenu green, he was ridiculed most of his life.
His dream was to prove he was as good as... no, better than any normal Kawenu.
One day he had had enough, and stole a standard fighter (with most of the crew still on-board) and set off in a random direction in space.
Because of Huitzilopochtli's extensive technical and combat knowledge, he was able to keep the crew at bay for an incredibly long time.
By the time the crew were able to regain control of the ship they were already far beyond any existing Kawenu starcharts.
During the chaos, many of the ships controll systems were heavily damaged, most unrepairable.
The crew found themselves hurtling out of control toward a small blue planet in the middle of nowhere.
After another fight with the remaining crew, witnessed by a large tribe of the planets native intelligent species, Huitzilopochtli saw the perfect opportunity to get the one thing he always wanted most, absolute power.
He became the ruler and most powerful god of this wandering tribe, and led them to where they would eventually build their vast empire.
The people who built this empire are known today as the Aztecs.

Aztec rendition of Huitzilopochtli:


Bronze Age Kawona (from page 1 of this topic):

The odd part about all this?
I totally didn't base the Kawona/Kawenu off this god when I started them, just the early Americas in general.
The similarity with this particular god was entirely coincidence.
I drew that Bronze Age Kawona a long time ago.  I found out about that god and what he looks like less than 2 hours ago.

Maybe the Kawenu actually exist and really DID come to earth! *X-Files Theme Song*

I made it (and all of the early pictures on the first few pages of the topic) using Illustrator.

Not sure about him, but either photoshop or GIMP or something similar. The Gimp is free here: http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/

But anyways, cool planet, are you going to elaborate on the moon? It doesn't look (completely) dead.

Hooray!
It is "Kawenu Pride Day!" back on the Kawenu homeworld!
All Kawenu in the universe have gone back home to celebrate how awesome they are!



Uh oh!
Whats that in the sky?!
Everyone was partying and not paying attention to their jobs, even the guys who are supposed to be looking out for anything coming from space!




Yeah, I'm done doin' creatures for a while, and if I do decide to do 'em again, it'll be a new species.
(Also, no, I did not make the picture, just added the text and arrow)

Gah, and I really liked this race, too. Thought it could become the third major fanmade race (Nauceans and Kazea being the first two, of course).
Wait, you're telling me Radiosity isn't the graphical simulation of a nuclear bomb?

i was gonna put that, but i didn't think anyone would catch the joke  :D

and I'm not letting them die!!!!!!!!

meanwhile...on some prison...
A group of kawenu were really sad. they were in prison, so they couldn't make it home for kawenu pride day. when the prison heard of what happened, it freed the kawenu, who spent the next 300 years repopulating the galaxy of kawenus.

 ;D  ALL BETTER!!!

Remember, each and every Kawona is still alive (Kawona are different from Kawenu, but still very similar).
They are off building their paradise galaxy.
Of course, they have absolutely no reason to return to this galaxy, but they could if they wanted to (they don't want to though).
Way more of my work was put into the Kawona anyway, so the Kawenu are really no big loss (4 pages of Kawona, 2 of Kawenu).

yeah, but no one cares about the kawona...;)
kawenu's are obviously much cooler in every way   :D
