Vartekians are evil, corrupt and ruthless tyrants who will kill anyone in their way. They are extremely ambitious and in their education they are taught the concepts of leadership. Diplomatically they will usually ally just so the partner will make the killing faster. Vartekians are adaptable and may live on any planet they choose. Their empire expands through a web of allies and their own planets.
The Vartekians have constructed their own robots for foot soldiers. The Vartekian is a threat to any species they come in contact with. The Vartekians are intelligent and consider each war as a game of chess. They are also the founders of the Confederation of Andromeda and members of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus.

Vartekians have always been great fighters, but their actual fighting skills originated in tribe stage when the Vartekians developed strategy and fought nearby tribes by waiting for fishermen to wander away from their village. The Vartekians would then ambush the fishermen, killing them. The Vartekians would go into the village and slaughter the inhabitants. In other cases the Vartekians would lure an epic into the tribe and let it destroy all the tribesmen then the Vartekian would go in and destroy the hut.
Early in the Civilization Stage the tribes had split into the nations: Vendoria, Aressia, Votanah, Adromid, Keita and Dragouros. At the time Dragouros was the most powerful nation and was ruled by Emperor Katsunova. Emperor Katsunova was known as a tyrant and ruthlessly killed thousands for simple entertainment. As he became older he raised a son named Strata who would one day rule his kingdom. Unfortunately Emperor Katsunova was assassinated leaving his young son to rule the empire. The son found that everyone was trying to take advantage of him and grew paranoid. At the age of 30 he was still paranoid. At one point he locked himself in his room and wouldn't come out. While he was in his room the empire found itself leaderless and weak.
This is when the empire of Vendoria attacked. Finding themselves confused the empire of Dragouros was easily conquered by Vendoria. Over the next 500 years Vendoria started to overcome all the nations one by one until only one remained. The small nation of Votanah was the only thing stopping the Vendorian empire. The Vendorians swiftly attacked but Votanah easily defended itself and drove back their opposers. The Lord of Vendoria was so over taken by this that he offered the people of Votanah a gift for their valiant efforts. But, when the people opened their gift, dark mist flooded through their land.
The Vendorians had tricked them and once again attacked. This time the Vendorians easily broke through Votanah's defenses and conquered them. Vendoria had successfully conquered their world and ultimately united the nations. The Vartekians then constructed a spaceship, which had to be well armored as well as powerful. The Vartekians had built a 'War Machine' but it was still fast and had good endurance to match.
They launched their first mission into space to their moon. On it, they planted a colony and then soon every planet in their system was colonized. The Vartekians moved out of their solar system and elected a captain, Captain Demoren. Captain Demoren was very ambitious but he was different than the other Vartekians. He found no need for violence. The captain was ordered to go to war with another race, but he had made friends on this planet and refused to conquer it. The Vartekian leader was furious with this rebellious act and sent his millitary general, Vendora, to do the deed. Captain Demoran tried to fight Vendora but he was more than a match for him. As a result Vendora defeated Demoran. Vendora then conquered the entire empire and was promoted to captain soon after.
Vendora soon became a hero to the Vartekians, and was promoted to their leader after the old lord died. He then raised his apprentice Coprata as the new captain. Vendora ruled for another 70 years. Coprata reached rank 7, but one fateful day the Vartekians attempted to form an alliance with the Grox. But the Grox refused and blasted the Vartekian Captain out. Captain Coprata died of his wounds and soon Vendora started to grow to old for the throne and the Vartekians had to elect a new captain as well as a new king. Vendora chose to elect Sataraura as the new leader, and a strong, intelligent soldier named Votarah as Captain.
Votarah soon became a Vartekian legend, as he conquered 25,000 planets. Sataraura and Votarah became good friends and together ruled through the ever expanding Vartekian empire. Only a few years after arriving at a new planet Sataraura was assassinated by a hit man named Zanuel. Votarah was in no condition to chase Zanuel because he had been wounded by another Captain earlier. The people of the Vartekian grew unsettled and began to riot. Within the chaos a warrior named Covaitan stepped up and persuaded the people to stop. His wise words and his air of power was enough to get both the people and Votarah to elect him as their new lord. Now lord Covaitan sits on the throne. Votarah and Covaitan soon became good friends. This would be known as the golden age of the Vartekian rule.
As the Vartekian golden age began the Vartekian empire succeeded in defeating the pirates that plagued them. After they conquered a planet an old friend of Votarah's arrived who would change the course of Vartekian history far more than Covaitan. Her name was General Saphiria the great.
When she arrived, Saphiria met with Votarah to catch up on lost time. She then started to travel to many different planets creating small groups of colonies. After a long battle Saphiria helped to conquer the new main home of Vartekian culture. As more time past the Vartekians began entering more and more wars. This ultimately allowed them to spread their forces further. They were even able to insert spies completely undetected.
One of the major wars the Vartekian joined was the vicious battle between The Cognatus and the United Republic of Cyrannus, known as the Intergalactic War. During the conflict, Votarah met an archenemy, the Cognatus shipmaster Ari'Vino. The two had many fights and in the end, the Vartekians played a large role in ensuring the Republic's survival. Ironic considering the fact that the two nations hated each other.
Vartekian age of Rebirth
The Vartekian reformed their body structure and evolved gaining better strength, speed and intelligence although the original Vartekians still existed. Votarah was also promoted in this age to admiral. Through this age the Vartekians had populated every section of the gigaquadrant and finally led their attack on the Allies. The Vartekian War had begun.
However, although the Vartekians enjoyed many successes in the war, they soon vanished back to their space in Andromeda, and the war was left without a victor. Many believed the Vartekians were destroyed in the Annihilation. However, they once again reappeared when they joined with their Mortalitas allies in joining the Confederacy of Allied Systems. The Vartekians used their knowledge of their spies to greatly enhance the Confederacy's effort to destroy the United Republic of Cyrannus in the Great Cyrannus War.
The Dark Times
When Emperor Tyrómairon announced the formation of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus in the aftermath of the Battle of Orbispira, the Vartekians, as members of the Confederacy, gladly joined. Agreeing with the Emperor, Lord Covaitan decided not to get involved in the ongoing Andromeda War, believing it beneath their notice. However, in the aftermath of the war, they began to become more active.
- Vartekians are 3.51 meters tall according to Sporistics
- Vartekians consist of 71 main bones
- Vartekians have a special set of tentacle-like processors under their jaw that help them break down plants for food. This is because in creature stage there wasn't enough animals to prey on.
- If a Vartekian is stabbed or wounded, special cells within the body can repair an average war wound within a total of 18 hours.
- The Vartekian torso is the weakest point on the Vartekian structure. If kicked there the Vartekian will buckle and fall.
- The strongest point on a Vartekian are their chests. The rib cage is extremely well protected and thus can resist large blasts of energy.
- Vartekians evolved on a volcanic planet thus they have a slight strength against fire and radiation.
- The Vartekian immune system is complex and extremely well fortified. It can to adapt and destroy most foreign diseases and plagues.
- Vartekian teeth do not rot and are covered with a natural protection system against harmful bacteria. In fact, the Vartekians saliva is so poisonous a bite could cause a massive infection which may even lead to death. If a Vartekian breaks his/her tooth it will simply fall out and be replaced by a new one.
- A Vartekian can run at top speed up to 65 miles per hour. And due to their highly evolved lungs, they can keep that pace up for 25 hours.
- An average Vartekian can lift up to two times its own weight.
A Vartekian female is smart and agile. They are nicer than the average Vartekian male and tend to be more political. By nature they attract males with their bright colors and eyes. Vartekian females are fast and agile fighters who usually act upon assassination missions.
Their primary job is to stay home and do most of the cleaning as well as work, however they are well respected as warriors ever since a Vartekian female named Saphiria lead a small attack force killing many of the opposing enemies. She helped to place thirty billion colonies making her one of the most famous and legendary Vartekians to ever live.
WARNING: The following is ridiculous. Vartekians have some very unique technology and have created powerful weapons that are only an inch tall and have enough power to destroy a tank. Vartekians have also designed robots that carry out their will. The Vartekians also invented drones which are small spider like robots which shoot missiles; they are very hard to see in battle sometimes. The robots are fit with laser guns that also fire missiles.They have figured out how to harness energy from quasars, energy around blackholes, enzyme action and even sensible energy.
The Vartekian robot was originally designed by Votarah back in his younger days as a captain. At first the robots were weak and did not function very well; they were easy to kill and did not have very good aim. The only good thing that came out of these robots were the fact that they were expendable and mass produced. Votarah later fixed this problem and made better generations.
The new generations were strong, non-hackable, expendable and had better aiming. These new versions became very effective and helped to reduce the amount of Vartekian troops on the battle field. They also served as good cover and the robots that were not critically injured crawled toward the enemy and combusted. Vartekian mech pilots Vartekian pilots aren't like regular robotic pilots. These guys are specially programmed with A.I. (Artificial Intelligence.) This allows for adapting to situations, memory, strategy formulations and learning. However the Vartekians knew their enemies might try to reprogram them so they designed a special genetic code lock for the robot.
Each individual robot is unique because they all have different speeds of learning and different levels at which they learn. These guys are also programmed for close combat fighting in case they crash land a ship or an enemy intercepts it. These robots are just the beginning.
Philosophy and Culture
The Vartekians are a Warrior race. The Vartekians do not have a god. Instead they believe in super-powerful beings. Their faith left them when they discovered their god was simply just a space captain who visited. For faith the Vartekians look toward their Captains and books written long ago.
The main sport is Gedeod, This sport dates back millions of years to the beginning of their civilization stage. The sport traditionally was used to decide arguments instead of war. Gedeod is played pretty much like a dodge ball game. The two sides will throw balls at each other. If your are hit you are out for the rest of the game. In the game there are three types of balls, a bomb ball, a multi ball and a Gedeod ball. The bomb ball is basically a bomb and is usually only used in professional games. A multi ball is a ball that can hit multiple players. A Gedeod ball is considered the normal ball and if the ball hits a player he or she is out (in adventures these would also be used as grenades.) In the game ten and only ten players are allowed on each team, no more, no less.
Vartekians are intelligent and their strategies are getting better. Soon it will be nearly impossible to defeat their empire in combat. They aim to take over any galaxy they come across. They are currently saving up their forces for a large attack that will spread through the other more powerful galaxies. They are currently aiming to take strategic points in the Milky Way Galaxy.
Hierarchy and Education
The Vartekians are lead by one Lord who makes their decisions and actions universally. The Council then approves of the motion or tells the Lord of the effects of his motion. The Captain then carries out the orders by the council or lord. The Captain is second in command. The Council is usually third in command unless the Lord dies. Then the Warriors and Elite Warriors come in . Warriors are a very highly educated class and are highly trained in combat. After that Scientists and Inventors are the fifth in command. They are also highly educated and build the Vehicles for the Warriors or the Captain.
Merchants are middle class and trade off or sell the things that either Scientists or Inventors make. They are also well educated but not as much as warriors and scientists. Scholars are also usually middle class but good Scholars are high class. Scholars are all highly educated and educate other Vartekians. Vellems are a mixture of lower class and middle class people who make up most of the city population. No Vartekians are poor and all are educated. This ensures that even merchants like Covaitan can become a lord if they have the skills for it.
The Vartekians take pride in their artistic fighting and architectural skill. They practice two fighting arts: Caldav and Codav. Those trained in Caldave are more focused in long range combat training. Those in Codav are trained in close combat. However many Vartekians like Votarah or Covaitan practice both. Vartekians also fight with an warrior code and must fight with honor. To them fighting is a culture and a lifestyle like music or dance. They also practice Terran martial arts known as judo and kung fu.
Caldav is a long range martial art that trains the students in precision and perfection. The students are trained to use guns in three types of combat: melee, throwing and shooting. Most high ranking Caldav students become snipers and are equipped with a long bayonet. Most Caldav students also train mentally and are trained to be extremely strategic. It is said "Only the most intelligent may master this art."
Codav is a melee form of combat and focuses on the arts of strength, power, technique, speed and agility. The Art of Codav trains both the mind and body and to perform right you must be calm and collected. The Students of Codav are trained to be highly adaptable and aware of their surroundings. It is nearly impossible to sneak up on one. One of the more advanced skills is learning how to control the opponents force of motion allowing even a small creature to throw an epic sized creature. All who train in Codav usually need to learn how to calm themselves and stay in control. Economy of movement is also a big part of this martial art.
No Vartekian is poor due to the way they operate in government. Most Vartekians live high quality lives. Even prisoners are kept in relatively clean areas. Vartekians always work to the best of their abilities and work hard to keep the economy working steadily. Houses are always quite large. Some Vartekian houses replicate Terran mansions and every Vartekian house is five star quality. Historically, some Vartekians lived in slums due to the war with the Grox and other enemies of the empire. This ended after Votarah and Covaitan rose to power. Covaitan secured the politics and Votarah conquered many of the empire's enemies until most of the major threats were over. With this temporary peace the Colonies were vastly upgraded and expanded. Planets were terrascored accordingly and the environments thrived. Many more jobs opened up in the weapons industry and created an economic boom when the weapons hit trade. One gun sold for one trillion sporebucks. What possessed the buyer is still a mystery. Each community within a Vartekian colony is well managed. Naturally the youth is very disciplined and obeys his or her parents like a military soldier. Sometimes Vartekian youths will get into large rumbles. These don't last long however. Education is very important in Vartekian life and is very well funded. Each school has top of the line technology and the children are given considerable amounts of freedom to explore special opportunities.
The Vartekian military is a very powerful legion of deadly infantry and war machines. The Vartekian military has helped to expand eighty percent of the entire Vartekian empire to how it stands now. Few can oppose this mighty force.
