Racial Profile (Sapiens)
The dominant sapient race, the Dorians are widely recognized not only as the preeminent intergalactic peace-keepers, but as the very architects of modern interstellar travel. Rather than expand their direct political power through the subjugation of other sapient species, they establish cooperation through a form of economic inter-dependence.
Physically, the Dorians are considered imposing despite being slightly smaller than the Maur and Orchallen. Their heads and upper bodies largely resemble Terrans, save for ornate horns on their foreheads which demarcate their hereditary lineage. Their legs are double jointed, terminating in powerful hooves that are frequently reinforced by technological or genetic modification. Their resemblance to certain creatures of Terran legend has prompted them to be occasionally referred to using the derisive moniker of "satyrs."
