Verin

They were the first. Their history stretches far beyond any other. They were the first to discover Meta, to discover genetics, and to discover Indices. The Verin pride themselves in their history, and taking the time to always make the right decision.   Within the Verin is the drive to be a beacon of stability. They maintain ways of life that have worked for millennia. They embrace the Meta that made them strong, and adapt new technologies only when they can make them perfect.

Sazashi

A race not evolved, but engineered. The Verin created the Sazashi as a slave race. They were designed to survive with the best of Verin and Sazakraht genetics. With such strength, they did not stay slaves for long.   The Sazashi have a drive built within them. Their Akjhe gives them purpose that is as much physical as it is mental. This drive led them to spread from their home of Jhoutai, to expand to new worlds.

Humanity

Once a proud and optimistic people, time has not been kind to humanity. Over the ages they have been forced to adapt, to change culturally and physically. They have to be like the Verin and Sazashi—exacting and harsh.   In humanity there is an urge to be different. They grew up on Eden without the Meta and wish to embrace that history, if only the meta wasn't what made them unique now.

Other Sophont?

Although these are the recognized Sophont, there are other entities which demonstrate features of Sophonce.   This list includes some Uplifts, Informorphs, and Manifestations.   Recognizing them as Sophont raises ethical and legal concerns regarding how some of these entities are treated.
