OOPS U GET TO LEARN ABOUT SPACE FURRIES ANYWAY!!!!!
So the Sha’ik are a race of bipedal, furred humanoids primarily on a planet known as Sha.
Sha is a rather large planet, and thus has several moons. These moons are: Fem, Sum, Mahk, Lei, and Re. These moons have been terraformed for several thousand years, and now populations of Sha’ik live on all of them.
The Sha’ik are a highly technologically advanced culture (duh, since they’ve terraformed their moons!) and have developed things like: highly sophisticated artificial intelligence, craft for interlunar travel, and advanced prosthetics. However, they have not mastered interstellar travel.
This is primarily because of their religious beliefs. Most Sha’ik are highly religious, and those religious beliefs are tied to the planet, the moons, and the space around them! So leaving their immediate space isn’t really something that’s often desired (though there are definitely Sha’ik working on interplanetary travel!)
Other fun facts about Sha’ik is that they have seven different genders! These genders are associated w/ personal worship of their patron deity and can be chosen and changed however the individual would like.
SO YEA UH thats maelrok and I’s headworld in sort of a tiny, itty bitty nutshell?? we’ve only been working on it for less than a year and there’s still lots of kinks to work out but !!!! we r very proud of it
