The Wentals are an aggressive and over-defensive species made of non-biological materials. They have advanced tier 2 tech, and even some tier 1 tech. Their fleet isn't massive, as much of it was destroyed in the Mechanization. However, the Wentalian Worlds are protected by default from invasion due to being hosts to Mecholife, which is generally too competitive for biolife to survive with. The Wentals were severely damaged during the Mechanization, and they are still far from their former power as a galactic entity before the Annihilation.
The Wentals plans change as they do, and the several factions among them have vastly different intents. Masuri and his followers seek the destruction of all non-Wentalian Life. Dylan and the Main Wental Empire seek to recover and be left in peace (as if!). Currently, the Wentals as a whole seek to plant colonies in the Wental Galaxy Ruins, as well as to gain allies in other galaxies to further the spread of Mecholife.
“To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.”
“More than ever before in Wental history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that is why we have united as one.”
The Wentals have many founding members, though the lines are steadily blurring now that the Mechanization has allowed for complete interbreeding and turned them into one species. However, the older generations still hold on to the dying traditions and consider themselves separate entities, and history claims they are.
The Mecholife of the Wentals Mechosphere makes them a strange and unique form of life. They can evolve at varying speeds and do not require an atmosphere, or even liquids, to survive. Many forms of Mecholife can and do live in the vacuum of space...
The Wentals have many religions, cultural backgrounds, and ways of living. From the non-tech using groups to the heavily religious groups, every face of the universe can be found in the Wentals collective cultural background.
The Wentals may be a Tier 3 Empire at the moment, but their tech reflects their varied and powerful past. Once, they were a Tier 2 Empire, and they have always had the Tier 1 Tech recovered from ancient species long since lost. The Wentals are most skilled in construction and superstructures.
After the Mechanization wiped out the entire Wentals Fleet, they couldn't protect themselves from a toothpick, let alone an enemy. They are rebuilding as fast as they can, but the fleet is still nonexistent.
The Economy of the Wentals is a weak but strengthening capitalistic econOmy. As they have such vast rebuilding to do there will be more then enough jobs for immense expansion of population. Their planets still have the needed resources, but in some cases (like building the fleet again) resources are being shipped from planet to planet.
The Wentals have leaders and influential people, as well as people worth noting because of their particular skills or abilities. There are many ways to be added to this list, and it grows every so often.
