The Dravimosian Empire is a confederacy of six different alien species that has existed for millions of years.
The Dravimos are a carbon-based oxygen-breathing reptilian species with a Cobalt-based blood system, giving their blood a vibrant bluish color. They have four fingers and toes, all with claws on them. Their heads are large and have bony plates extending behind it. They stand about 7 to 8 ft. tall. They are also resistant to colder temperatures because of their homworld's climate.
The Xeraji are a carbon-based oxygen-breathing insectoid species with a Manganese-based brown blood system. They prefer to live in dry atmospheres of about 33% Oxygen, 75% Nitrogen, and 2% Chlorine. Xeraji have a pair of organs located near their lungs that effectively allows them to recycle the air they breathe. This, combined with the fact they can breathe in almost any atmosphere and a retractable membrane that covers their mouth and head, lets them survive almost anywhere for a limited amount of time, even in space. Their natural biology dissipates radiation and temperature which, with their unique style of breathing, lets them survive in almost any condition. However, they cannot survive in harsh environments for an extended amount of time. In space, the longest they can survive is about 44 minutes. On planets with less radiation or close to Earth’s atmospheric pressure, they can survive weeks later. The Xeraji have very few weaknesses and are designed to be the perfect soldiers. One apparent drawback is that they seem to have a weakness of fire. The average Xeraji Drone only lives about 14.5 years, but they have a quick reproduction rate and mature quickly.
The Xeraji have two important characteristics. One is their appendages located on their abdomens. These appendages are able to move and have a gland that can secrete a substance that can be hardened into a hard substance. This hard substance is the same that makes up their natural armor and structures, and can be used to build or repair buildings. It can also be used as improvised ammunition, but it does not fuction as well as regular bullets.
The most interesting and viable asset of the Xeraji is in their saliva. A bioengineered virus resides inside every Xeraji, and can spread to any sentient organism. The Xeraji spread this virus by biting their foes. The virus enters the bloodstream, where it spreads throughout the body. The virus targets individual cells, destroying the DNA inside and replacing it with identical DNA from the Xeraji that injected the virus. Over a period of two months the virus slowly converts all cells to the Xeraji equivalent, thus essentially transforming the subject into another Xeraji drone. In some rare cases in which the virus is unable to perform such a task due to DNA rejection, it instead causes the cells to die when it deletes the cell's DNA and ultimately killing the subject. Only one cure has been developed and it is housed on the planet of Krysalis. Dravimos are immune to the virus.
Appearance: On the outside the Xeraji are about 5’11”, with dark brown chitinous armor, and light brown/orange skin and muscle tissue. They have four limbs, two pairs of spiked appendages located on the side of the abdomen, and two to four waxy wings. On their head they have two red eyes, two sensory organs that are the equivalent of ears, and a large mouth that splits down and moves to the sides as it opens, revealing ten teeth and a small retractable tongue on the top of their mouth. The Xeraji have an endoskeleton.
What little other species know about the Dravimos comes from records on derelict spaceships. The first Dravimos eveloved around 26.1 Million years ago on their home planet of Krysalis. Krysalis is a large cold world about one and a half times larger than Earth. For about 15,358 years the Dravimos were divided into small political entities similar to those on Earth, however large scale wars were far fewer, and it is believed that only one world war occured in their history. In the aftermath, the various nations put aside their differences and focused on one goal: the survival of their species. They soon progressed into a space age, colonizing their entire solar system. When they discovered Interstellar travel they expanded rapidly to secure more systems. Most of the conflicts the Dravimos fought were against pirates and defected soldiers. This provided little combat for the advanced Dravimos soldiers.
The first sapient species the Dravimos encountered were the Karnehai, one million years ago. War with the hostile species was difficult, as the Karnehai were almost just as advanced and stronger than the Dravimos. The Dravimos developed the Xeraji to beat them, and after a hundred year war the Karnehai were added to the empire.
The Dravimos encountered the Maoimer in 1612 A.D. An aquatic humanoid native to the waters of Sirminaza, the Maoimer were just starting to encroach on the lands of their home planet when Dravimosian pirates landed and started to ravage the lands for its resources. The Dravimosian Navy moved in to take out the pirates, but by now the Maoimer were fully suspicious of the Dravimos. They attacked the Navy as it bombarded the pirate's bases and outposts. The Dravimos returned fire, but most of the enemy forces were safely hidden underwater. The Xeraji, however, were able to take the fight to the Maoimer with reasonable success. The quick breeding rate of the Xeraji meant that no matter how many the Maoimer could kill, they couldn't replenish their numbers fast enough. By two years time the Maoimer were accepting unconditional surrender when the Dravimos threatened to orbitally glass the planet. The war was over.It is currently unknown how the Dravimos became so advanced over such a short period of time, but many who are familiar to the topic suggest that the Dravimos rarely kill each other, thus allowing more to use their minds for productive purposes. Also, it might be explained by when one Dravimosian comes up with an idea, others don't laugh at it or declare it impossible, they either help the idea become reality or ignore it and focus on their own projects.
The Xeraji were the final result of the Dravimos Bioengineering program to create an artificial organism to perform tasks that the Dravimos would be unable or unwilling to do.The current system count of the Empire is 1545 completely colonized systems and 146 partially colonized systems.
Very little of Xeraji society is know, and fewer still of Dravimosian society. The Xeraji operate on a hive system, and almost all of the species know nothing but complete loyalty to the hive and to the Dravimos.
It is known that the Dravimos are very skilled with Biology and Bioengineering, as one might guess from a species that could create another. They are also very skilled with mechanical engineering and metullergy, and have created several machines to help them fight wars.
Socially, the Dravimos are suspicious of any species not their own. The Xeraji are the exception. However, the Dravimos are very aware when an alliance is needed to defeat a greater threat. The Dravimos value intelligence over social class or appearence, although honor and physical prowess are also valued within society. The Dravimos have a religion, but little is known about it, as many Dravimos choose to go into fields concerning science rather than those involved in religion. One rule in society is to not mix or compare religion and science. To bow someone's head in front of a Dravimosian is considered issuing a challenge, and is therefore offensive.
The Dravimos are a very technologically advanced civilization, and are perhaps the most advanced of known species. They have contained all diseases native to their planet, and after the recent virus epidemic also have nanobots that destroy harmful cells in their body. In warfare they mainly use either railguns or plasma rifles combined with energy shielding for troops and ships alike.. The railguns use an Iron-Tungsten-Depleted Uranium alloy, which is capable of puncturing most materials. The Dravimos have nuclear weapons and limited antimatter weapons. They are capable of moving or destroying planets.

Relations: The first contact with Humanity was in 1587 A.D., when a Xeraji scout ship entered the Sol system. The ship observed the blue planet, and marked it worthy of further study. A Dravimos Research Ship entered the system the following year and some soldiers landed on the planet. They collected several DNA samples from Human tribes in Hawaii, then left to embark on other marked worlds, leaving no trace of their previous arrival. The system was still marked, and when Humanity developed Spaceflight there was renewed interest in studying the Humans once more...

the Dravimos value all species highly, and they believe extinction is one of the universe's greatest flaws. As a result, they have genetic and specimen examples of almost every speceis they encounter, which now number in the millions. They are all housed in the Frozen Biological Vault on Krysalis, which also has many cures for diseases as well. For convienence, only the sapient races will be listed below.
