The Kaldri (Bump: Revamp!)
« on: April 15, 2006, 06:33:12 pm »
I've made a total revamp of the race. Read below.

Empire of the Kaldri

History: The Kaldri race used to be divided up in clans before the great Emperor united them. The clans were called: Sledrigan (The mutant clan), Frevylon (The warrior clan), Zelanion (The technology clan) and the Amarion (The religious clan). 400 years ago, 13 years B.G., a war started between the Frevylon, Zelanion and the Amarion. They fought against eachother 13 years, until something horrible happened. It was year 1 B.G. (Before Glory). A great battle had just started between the 3 clans at Bloody Hill. They were all fighting when the sky suddenly filled with darkness. Fiery comets began to rain down on the planet, destroying almost everything. All 3 armies from the clans were annihilated, except for one Kaldri. The Kaldri stood in the middle, looking at his kin who was in
terrible argony. He heard the screams, and then he saw something. What he saw isn't known but it did something to him. He walked away from the burning battlefield, and started to walk from clan to clan (Except the Sledrigan, as they weren't known at that time) He shared what he had seen with the 3 clans and told them that it was punishment from the gods, and he made them unite under him. He made them focus on military and technology, so that they would be prepared for anything threatening.

215 A.G.: The first spaceship containing Kaldri was launched into space. Sentient life on a nearby planet was discovered later the same year. The Emperor wanted to establish contact with them, so he ordered the scientists to rush up a new design for a spaceship known as F.C.215 (First Contact 215) He sent a diplomatic team out in space and made them land on the planet. The team was slain, and their bodies were eaten by the primitive race. This sign of aggression aggrovated the Emperor, who wanted a military squad sent up there to slay the race. The order was fullfilled. The Kaldri were from that day very paranoid about other "intelligent" races.

The year is now 387 A.G., and the power of the Empire is at it's climax.


Religion: There are 3 gods in the Kaldri religion: Hytalion the Painbringer, Feidon the Saviour, and Tryzen the Healer. The Amarions are the only ones who ever seriously believed in them. Hytalion was/is worshipped by "evil" Kaldri. They sacrifice other Kaldri do gain his blessing of power and shield themselves from his wrath. Feidon is worshipped by any Amarion Kaldri who works with danger everyday. Tryzen is worshipped by Amarion medical units. The Kaldri with a little Amarion bloodline in their blood believe in the gods because it's a part of their instincts.


Structure of the Empire: This it just the top of the pyramid.

Emperor: Nobody knows how the Emperor has been able to live so long, as the normal lifetime for a Kaldri is around 130 years, but some say that it's because of what he saw on the battlefield. It isn't know what clan he was a member of before he became Emperor, but it is said that he was an Amarion because of his belief in the gods.

Military units

--The Bloodmage--

Background: The Bloodmages of the Kaldri are mutants with special abilities. Old tales say that the mutations started 700 years ago when a clan, named Sledrigan, drank from a strange liquid they had found near their village. The liquid came from some sort of crashed U.F.O., but they didn't know what the consequences would be. They drank it because they thought it was a gift from the god Hytalion and because it was drought that year.  (Hytalion was later known as Hytalion the Painbringer because of the following things.) The liquid drove the clan insane, and they began to fight for it. Their babies were born mutated with bodyparts placed the wrong places, but their mind and skills had also changed. They were paranoid and were socially disabled. They could cause great argony to themselves with strange powers that made their own blood feel like thousand of daggers inside their body. They lived exiled from everybody else in 650 years, not being able to proceed in evolution or in technology.

50 years ago, the great capital of Zealet expanded to the rest of the planet, and the construction workers found this cursed clan. They reported it to the Emperor, who then took advantage of their conditions. He made his scientists manipulate with their genes, so that their skin would expand down on their front-face, and a breathinghole would be created inside their backs. They wouldn't be able to eat, see or breathe by themselves, so the scientists plugged a machine onto their backs, which would feed and breathe for them through their holes. They were made braindead (Into zombies :) ), except for the fact they were forced to follow orders, or else an implant inside their brain would be activated, starting all ther pain nerves in their bodies. Their great abilities were turned around to effect others, instead of themselves.

Use of them today: These mutants are being cloned under controlled situations everyday. They serve as torture "machines" and are great tools on a battlefield.

Abilites: They can manipulate with other creautures' minds, and cause great argony inside them. This only causes psychological pain, and not physical. They have a 6th sense that makes them able to "feel" things with their minds, instead of seeing with their eyes. This is also a part of their mutation.

Explanation of their ability:
Scientists believe that the mutants send out a very precise and special sound towards their target. This sound is created by a biosonar. They can change the range of this to whatever they like, but it will demand a lot of energy, and the record of "shots" at maximum range that has been recorded, is 2, before the mutant fainted.

Their skin is resistant to radiation, which makes them immune to a lot of their own weapons

Stop there.

What, exactly, is the point of bulding a weapon that you can't kill each other with? How did these "useless" weapons arise? Were they originally designed as hairdryers? Tanning beds?

"Oh no, alien invaders!"

"Quick! Get the hairdryers!"

The military of the Kaldri is their pride. Almost nothing has proved to be a challenge against the massive fleet consisting of 1.5 million ships. 900.000 fighters - 350.000 frigates. 150.000 cruisers. 99.997 battleships - 3 titan capital ships.

Oh dear. Nationstates anyone?

Why stop at 99,997 ships? Why not round it off with another 3? They can obviously afford it.

He didn't say 99,997, he said 99.997. He's 0.003 of a battleship away from 100.

I wonder how many hairdryers each battleship has? ;)

Why would they want to use them against themselves, when they're are so many other things to use them against? Being resistant to your own weapons is a plus.

Point well made. It's pretty silly (and a waste) to develop a useless weapon on the off-chance that you'd run into another species that's vulnerable to it.

i think they sound cool and the ability to not get killed by your own weapons is great and mabey they tested the weapons on other races you never know and plus since you can make unlimited amounts of monsters theres bound to be atleast one race that is immune to your weapons

They didn't know that they were resistant against radio activity until they began researching the technology. The Kaldri evoluted in pool of radioactive waste dropped off on the planet by an yet-to-be-known race from another planet. (Which explains why they're resistant) The Kaldri might come from thar race's planet, nobody knows.

P.S.: The Kaldri has other kinds of weapons than just radio active ones. Those are mostly used against their own kind.

Maybe they are like how water guns are for humans.

I dont have a problem with it. Its like the aliens in Evolution. Shampoo kills them. Something which humans originally only used for practical and mundane purposes became a weapon to use against alien invaders.
So when the Kaldri found that any alien vistors to their homeworld keeled over and died while touring power facilities they decided to expand on the idea.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
