Consortium of Intelligent Species
Due to the nature of each species, it is not always possible for representatives to understand each other by speech, so additional technology was developed by the Builders to enable communication. Each diplomat possesses a crystal translator that enables direct brainwave access to the other members. This can be daunting due to the intimate nature of the connection, but it also helps assure honesty and sincerity. Taking this role is an act of personal courage.
The Jinn, Singers, Tirmas and Yun’dzai have maintained tenuous relations during their absence from the Birthplace. With the reappearance in modern times of the being known as The Architect, these four races have come back to the Consortium to resume their partnership.
Of the sixteen races represented by effigies on the Birthplace of Light and Shadow, two are known to be extinct. The member species are:
* Auk’kheem (aka the Builders) (missing, presumed extinct)
* Azuraki (extinct)
* The Jinn
* Naga (extinct)
* The Oh
* Vaa (missing)
Map of Map of the BuildersThis map was inscribed on Nazca Plain for the future use of human beings when they became a space-going race. When interposed and scaled along certain anchor points, the map reveals the locations of members of the Consortium of Intelligent Species. Viewed within the Wheel of Worlds (known as Windows to humans and the Zaaskira to the Jinn), this map expands to a 3D view. Some constellations are territories rather than revealing the specific location of home worlds, as some of the member species were not keen on revealing the central location of their race. The entire network of portals built by the Auk'kheem are contained within this diagram.
