The Yodian are an ancient and mysterious race within the Cyrandia Cluster.
Yodians as a species are rather small compared to other races within the Cyrandia Cluster. Most known Yodian standing below 70 centimeters, but have extremely long lifespans lasting many hundreds of years. Yodian have sharp, elfin ears, ridges on their foreheads and tridactyl hands. Their leathery skin and blood were both light green. Their sharp teeth pointed to a carnivorous diet. Most of them, though not all, spoke an idiosyncratic dialect of Galactic Basic Standard, utilizing non-standard grammar and formalized sentence construction. Most Yodian posses strong magical abilities and connections as well, indicating they were probably blessed by either the Atlantica or the Oikoumene. Yodians by nature are wise and curious beings, wishing to explore and learn new things led them to search for new life among the stars.
Though friendly and honest by nature, the Yodian created their own enforcers, known as the Yodian Knights. Clad in green/orange armor these knights are the bravest, most noble and fierce Yodians. Serving onboard their ships and serving the law, the knights are considered the peace keepers of the Yodian territories and protectrates.
Not much is known of the history of the Yodian species. Their homeworld, Yodian has once been a bastion and promising planet of their space faring empire within the Unclaimed Territories of the Quadrant Galaxies. Records indicate the Yodian reached space around 14.000 BQF and are one of the first space faring civilizations after dissapearance of the Aininyë. The Yodian took upon their new roles as explorers and shepards of still developing lifes. Their exploration led them southwards where they eventually came across the Wormhole Plateau, witnissing many wormholes leading to various locations the Yodians were hesistant to use them, not knowing if their were others who were friendly beyond them. As such the Yodians launched their Destiny-class, a 752 meter long range exploration ship. Sending through each wormhole the Destiny-classes began their exploration missions, with few ever returning. When the Quadrantia Grox arrived within the Quadrants in 3530 BQF, the Yodian species were deemed unworthy of assimilation and their civilization was destroyed by the fearsome Grox. Scattering across the Cyrandia Cluster the Yodians dwindled in numbers, and their species faces a certain extinction.
