The Farold Race
["The Farold Race","","The farolds are a nomadic race. They are of an average human height. Though they stand on two legs and have two arms as humans do, their eyes are cat-like in appearance. They do not have hairy bodies but the fur on their head and face is feline in nature. They give the impression of sleekness and power.","","Humans came across the Farolds in the early 1970's. Just a few years later, this elusive race decided to reach out and begin trade talks with earth. They did this so that they could both gain more knowledge of humans and for the simple fact that they have a great prowess for the industry of trade. It is their belief that trading is the beginning to opening doors for greater technology, which makes the scientists and engineers of the Farold community happy.","","The Farolds are known for both their willingness to help and their arrogant nature. They believe that they are superior in both combat and technology to any race that we have discovered. This relays back to the fact that, though they are not warlike, it doesn't mean that they can't battle if the need should arise. Thus, this race was left alone when the Kiohn race tried to annihilate humans. In part, because the Kiohn beings would have lost and they knew that the many talents of the farolds could be useful to their race.","","The Farolds aided an estimated 300,000 humans in hiding from the Kiohns. They gave them a vast underground tunneled city in which to live until such a time came that they were ready to rise up and become what they once were. Note that just over half of the rescued humans were placed in cryogenics chambers and released during the first decade of hiding.","","Though it may be possible for a human and Farold to have a romantic relationship, they cannot have babies. The Farold method of breeding is different from ours. Once every seven years, they can have an egg extracted. This egg is then chemically fertilized and kept in a special incubation unit at an undisclosed location. They can begin egg extractions at the age of 35.","","Farolds have a strong belief in setting up your home and career before starting to have children. Since their life expectancy is around 120 years, they chose that specific age. Currently, they are not allowed more than three children.","","Legend has it that this race used to breed in a more similar method as ours. This was prior to scientifically enhancing their immune systems against radiation poison, which had nearly wiped out the race several centuries ago. It was post radiation immunity that they developed this new method of breeding. In short, the immunity enhancement period, which took centuries to perfect, also changed the way they have to breed.","","Since the farolds age differently than humans, middle age for them is roughly around the ages of 55 to 75 years. They usually begin to retire at the age of 90 to 100.","","The farold dictator lineage is as follows.","","ArzaAra Faro 1989 to 1999.","","KiKai Faro 1999 to 2015.","","LeeLee Faro 2015 to 2108.","","NaraNara Faro 2108 to 2122.","","Arthur Faro 2122 to 2147.","","LorkaLor Faro 2147 to 2200.","","Larkra Faro 2200 to present.","","Born in 2165, Larkra is the fifth generation of LeeLee's lineage to become dictator.","","While the farolds can withstand radiation poisoning, other lifeforms cannot. Thus, in 1969, they came up with an added radiation security measure. They began building a magnetic shield across key points of Kapteynia Beta. This took nearly 15 years to perfect and helped lower the level of radiation on the planet significantly.","","While the farolds are travelers by nature, many have adapted to having a home planet and opted to not travel so much."]
