Alfar

Alfar are the genetically modified, modern descendants of humans.

1. Biology

Although the alfar have base human stock, genetic meddling has left them looking far different from their Old Earth ancestors. Alfar skin tones range from vibrant blues and greens to dark reds and oranges. Most alfar have white or platinum blonde hair, although such is rarely seen, as permanent hair dyes are a part of a young alfar’s coming of age rite. The eyes of an alfar are more elongated than those of a stock human, and irises are always white or silver. Ears are elongated and pointy, often reaching twleve inches in length. Also because of genetic meddling, an alfar’s mouth is filled with sharp, pointy teeth, much like a single row of shark’s teeth.

Typical adult alfar stand between 5’ and 5’8" and weigh 100-155lbs.

2. Culture

The alfar psyche is a very odd mix of high ideals, selfishness, and deviousness. Alfar do prize cunning and manipulation of others, both physical and social, to be among the greatest of possible virtues, but they also have a personalized sense of “the greater good” and will always work toward that end. So, while skullduggery is almost a national sport for the alfar, very few would ever go out of their way to cause direct harm to another being. This mixed bag of motives makes for very convoluted politics, both internally and externally, with the other Alliance of Free Stars client species.

3. History

Almost three full decades before humans developed their first working prototype of the Way Gate technology, a mad scientist, Dr. Tim Brown, released a series of viruses that changed the shape of humanity forever. Each virus was a common cold that had been modified to attack the human genome and remake humanity’s children in Dr. Brown’s ideal image(s). As he was a self-avowed “fantasy and anime fanatic”, several dozen demi-human varieties were originally created, such as “elf”, “cat-person”, and “orc”. However, interracial relations, war, and a time-altered strain of Dr. Brown’s viruses eventually led to the unified genome of the modern alfar.
