“My race has forever been enemies of the Xhodocto. Vengeance is quintessential.”
- - Tharaqím
Commandant Dynburhonsulitharaqím Vorrankalpertánisslorathos, known mononymously as Tharaqím is the one of the last living members of the Shka'Tun race.
An ancient being, Tharaqím was born in Universe 66501 over 1.6 million years ago. As a precursor race, the Shka'Tun were tasked with the creation of life, uplifting sentient beings and creating a harmonious balance of the universe. However, the Shka'Tun were met with numerous challenges. The Xhodocto, for instance, were slowly escaping their prisons during their imprisonment, and tried to cull the advancement of the Shka'Tun. The Vi'Navitum, however, bequeathed numerous technological advancements to the Shka'Tun in order to combat the threat. The Xhodocto were eventually stopped by the Vi'Navitum, although the Xhodocto lead the Sphagarzi race to Xhodocto technological advancements soon after. Tharaqím was at the forefront of the battles nearer the end, and is a claimant to have fought a Xhodocto directly.
After the destruction of the universe in 2766 AD, and then again in the mid 2780's AD, the Shka'Tun race was very nearly destroyed. Forcing them to move to this universe after the irreparable damage done to Universe 66501, the Shka'Tun maintained secrecy and sought to rebuild themselves. However, upon the rising of the Dominion of the Xhodocto, the Shka'Tun Empire suffered a final blow, completely annihilating the race after a war lasting nearly 2 billion years. Tharaqím escaped the onslaught with others, however separated after the Tandava Lord Kimundradmosroth captured him. During the events of Tantummodo Mortem, Tharaqím was discovered in imprisonment by the team, and has accompanied their journey to destroy the Dominion from the inside.
Tharaqím appears to be a standard height Shka'Tun, wearing silver armor and possessing a gleaning, almost luminous white skin.
Before the Shka'Tun's eventual destruction, Tharaqím had a personality shared by all Shka'Tun. Viewed as a god-race to all other races of Universe 66501, Tharaqím was to maintain a stoic but a superior atmosphere around him to keep detached from the races he helped uplift. After their destruction, Tharaqím's personality changed. He became more determined to avenge the death of his species, as well as willing to work with others that he once viewed as lesser life forms.
The Shka'Tun race were connected to a system that granted them abilities similar to the Vi'Navitum - Tharaqím once possessed very powerful essence abilities as well as incredible strength and endurance. Following their destruction, Tharaqím's powers have mostly been lost. The connection to the system mutated the genetics of the Shka'Tun race, and maintain a small power of the Vi'Navitum essence and technological capability.
After his imprisonment, Tharaqím's weapons were destroyed. All he has of Shka'Tun origin is his armor, that grants him the ability to resist most forms of conventional attack.
