One of the most powerful and developed civilizations on Rhamas are the Choloom people. With mighty bodies, strong work ethic, and an organized civilization structure, few invading forces dare to confront them. However, the Cohloom tend to be a peaceful society, leaving many of the more aggressive nations to wonder why they don't use their strength to the full.
Anatomy & Morphology
The Cohloom have thick, tough skin that slowly calcifies with age. Their bones are among the densest of all life in Rhamas and their muscles grow and heal quickly. Their skin is so thick that there is little evidence of blood vessels underneath, giving their flesh a more monochromatic tint.
Genetics and Reproduction
Due to the calcification process that protects the flesh of the Cohloom, most female Cohloom are unable to bear many children, if they can bear any at all. The species only survives due to the fact that some members have unique genetic predispositions that prevent the calcification process. These females are fiercely protected by the community and are held in high regard, but are also expected to produce a large number of offspring during their lifetime to preserve the species.
Due to their limited ability to breed, their society is focused on supporting and protecting the members of their society who are most capable of sustaining them onto the next generation. All within the community are expected to carry out their assigned duty in this regard.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Cohloom communities are found exclusively in the central plains, frequently in close proximity to Zaranai fortifications. They tend not to prefer the extreme north or south, but stay in the more temperate areas of the plain areas.
Despite having high-functioning brains, the Cohloom do not have traditional schools nor an advanced educational system. From a young age, they are taught and expected to pursue a specific career that will be of benefit to the local community.
Civilization and Culture
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
Cohloom tend to isolate themselves from other species in order to avoid war or bloodshed, which they know to be common in the outside world. Occasionally, a clever and entrepreneurial soul may be capable of gaining their trust and opening up trade with them, but doing so is difficult and dangerous.
