Sazashi

Written by Ademal

The Sazashi are a Sophontic species which were made by the Verin millennia ago to work for them. Their revolution and independence is ancient history, but so woven into their cultures that it's rare to find a Sazashi who does not carry some pride and fierce individualism.
 
The Sazashi are the youngest Sophont, but you wouldn’t guess it by looking at what they have accomplished. When they can stop infighting they prove to be highly productive and driven as a people, surmounting each obstacle placed before them. To call them a force of nature is to deny their strength. The beast whose metal they were cast from, the sazakraht, is a force of nature—the Sazashi are them engineered to greater aspirations. The Verin made them by merging their genetics with the sazakraht via a process known as therianthropy.   They take pride in their revolution from their creators, a fact which shows in all aspects of their fierce independence, but they cannot turn their backs (nor do they wish to) on the natures the Verin coded into them. Each and every race of Sazashi was built for a purpose that’s evident not only in the construction of their bodies, but in the shape of their minds. They call this calling their Akjhe (aw-hay). Though it was planted by the Verin, they are proud of it, and see it as part of what makes them a step up from the Verin. For while others may search their whole lives for meaning, the Sazashi are born feeling theirs.
