Stoucrix

Along with the Reikaw, the Stoucrix are one of the two races recognized as Children of the Primmortals. They hold a close relationship to the Primmortals whom they revere as gods. Displaced from the Stoucrix homeworld after the War in the Heavens, they were placed on a new homeworld. Stoucrix are tribalistic and clannish and have become physically accustomed to living underground and in the dark.

Stoucrixi are largely suppressed by post-humanity and either live as supplicants or mercenaries. Their natural ability to fight and work in the dark gives them a huge advantage over their post-human counterparts. In a long history of conflict, the Stoucrix have come to value the traits of the warrior. Their culture is naturalistic and honest, and they rely heavily on tradition. These qualities made them very popular in posthuman media for a time.

They are recognizable by their subdued, avian features, often pale-to-tan striated coloring and extensive body scarification. When underground, their pupils dilate completely, and they share the black eyes of the Reikaw, as well as having a natural gift for Psi powers, though the two races are definitely not on friendly terms. The posthumans were not the first to exploit and suppress the Stoucrix, and traditionalist Stoucrixi have not forgotten.
