Talokun are available to play with, but keep in mind that they are animals, so they can't talk or interact with the world the way sentients do.
Naturally colored Talokin only, please. Though their natural color can range from a rust color to tan to brown. Please see their species sheet, since I should have a full range of their colors listed on there.
Well... you could make one a very, very light tan color that's a few shades above white. An albino talokun likely wouldn't survive very long in the wild since they don't have good camouflage in the desert.
As for talking, nope. They can't really do that. They're pretty much giant desert lizards.
Well, I wouldn't be surprised by the evolutionary turnaround.
How common would it be for sentients of the Azure Wheel universe come across human artifacts? It almost seems like the Denaq might have the most information on their human predecessors if any of the old databanks were preserved (I understand it would be highly unlikely though).
None of the races of the Azure Wheel Universe know who the humans were... they became extinct some 350,000 years before even the rise of the Spaceborn Empire.
The only thing that really remains of humans are some ruins of ships known as "The Graveyard" that overlooks the Shyass point system. They have been explored quite a bit, but nobody could ever find any concrete information on what or who these "ancients" as they've come to be called were.
My character, Shae does own an artifact from the graveyard. It's a credit card that he found while exploring the ruins. Hell if he knows what it was for, though.
