The ancestors of the people of Adrola, as well as many from it's sister planets of Caella and Bycttus, fled to the Unknown Regions of the galaxy from the planet Tython. A group of Shi'ido and Humans, numbering over fifty, left Tython around 25,800 BBY in order to escape the impending Force Wars. Most of which were force users. They wandered the galaxy for years in a large interstellar craft, until finally making their way to what is known today as the Tri-Core system, containing three gravitationally connected planets, surrounding a moon, and orbiting the sun together. Many Shi'ido and possibly some humans from the group, liking the look of the forest planet below, took up refuge there, while others made their way to the hot desert and cold water planets neighboring it. It is often believed that some of the human force users, with the discovery of the force, tried with some success to obtain shape shifting abilities through the force, equal to that of the Shi'ido, and that they too may be part of the the Adrolan ancestry, but there is no hard evidence to support such claims. Tri-Core scholars refer to these human force users as Force-Shifters Upon arriving on the forest covered lands, it was discovered that a multitude of non-sentient and half-sentient species inhabited the planet. This was promising as the Shi'ido could easily hid among the various species without detection, should any from the rest of the galaxy try to seek them. They spent over a hundred years, conducting extensive studies of the various species, all the while the Shi'ido built their numbers up into the hundreds. It was discovered that the anmals themselves had formed groups of like-species with like traits, out in the regions of the planet which received varied light. There were a total of twenty three such species groups, each filled with a variety of similar species. It is known that the Shi'ido, and possible Force-Shifters if they existed, split among the different tribes, taking on their specific forms in hiding. What is a point of controversy amongst the Adrolans, however, is whether or not there is a genetic link to the non and half-sentient beings that were on the planet at the time. This is a matter of extreme controversy amongst the Adrolan people. Regardless of that fact, the Shi'ido lived among the groups, eventually forming twenty three tribes, and later building a society out of the naturally occurring elements around them. After about 15,000 years, most of the non and half-sentient species within the tribes died out, and the Shi'ido, having used those forms, and the forms of other tribes for so long, became limited to these tribal forms. They also lost the ability to transform into humanoid and other near-human forms, other than their base form which is human in appearance. This evolutionary mutation is what has created the Adrolans, now merely close cousins to the Shi'ido.
Other changes that had occurred, where changes to the abilities of youngling. As Shi'ido, younglings could only manage to change the color of their skin and later become humanoid or near-human forms. However, with the need to hide among the non and half-sentient species of the planet, the Shi'ido underwent a mutation, known in Adrolan history books as an "Adrolan Mutation", causing each Adrolan child to be born with the primary form used by their father. Later this became, a youngling is born with the form their father was born with. Because of interactions on the planet, every Adrolan has the potential to learn every tribes forms occurring on the planet. And many forms are possible under each tribe. Though many choose not to, striving to master as many forms as possible from their own or another tribe. In any case, to those who do choose to learn new forms, the form that their Mother was born with, or in other words their Maternal Grandfather's form, is typically the easiest for them to learn first, beyond their birth-given form. Of course this only applies of a marriage took place between two individuals of different tribes, and it resulted in a child being born. Contradictions to this mutation have occurred. Relatively unheard of, but some Adrolan children have been born with the ability to become their mother's, and not their father's form. This anomaly has only about a 1 in 3000 chance of occurring. Most of the time, especially in political marriages it was believed the mother committed adultery and was therefore exiled to the dark lands with her child. Adrolan procreation occurs in the same way human procreation does. Adrolans cannot lay eggs, or produce hundreds of children at one time, nor can they change genders, nor can males become pregnant. In fact, for most tribes a woman who does become pregnant is rendered temporarily unable to transform into any non-mammal form, and most physicians would recommend she not become any form that either she or her husband was not born with. Due to this, many women must remain in their human form for the entire duration of their pregnancy. Along with the genetic restriction on possible forms taken, Adrolans cannot customize their forms, with one exception, or become half human/half creature forms. They can only become the forms that their bodies have, through the 15,000 years they have been on the planet to this point, have become acclimated to transforming into. This would mean any/all the species on the planet Adrola upon their arrival. Among other things, an Adrolan's human form is their primary form. Also unlike the Shi'ido, Adrolans cannot change the color of their skin or hair at will, unless it is to achieve a known form. Like the Shi'ido however, Adrolans can hide objects within their bodies, and shift the clothes they are wearing as well, allowing them to return to human form fully clothed. Adrolans can understand speech, but cannot speak in any form other than human. Therefore, mind speak, or some form of force-telepathy is used for communication when in these forms. Many younglings have trouble learning this ability at first, but most all master it by about the age of fourteen. Likewise, regardless of the form, an Adrolan retains their cognitive ability, memory, and the essentials of who they are, but are prone to tendencies that are natural to the original species. For example, hunting for live prey, grassing, grooming, and enjoying being scratched behind the ears, among other things. However this does not mean an Adrolan will obtain the unique abilities a creature they become has beyond that animal's base functions. For example, a laikezian assuming a from resembling a ysalamiri, will not suddenly be able to repel the force.
The exception to customization of a form occurs at the time an Adrolan is learning a form. In order to learn a form, the Adrolan has to create a mental picture of the form they are trying to learn. It does not have to be completely detailed as nature fills in the blanks. The only restriction to forming this mental image is that the form being learned must be within the constraints of it's tribe. That meaning if one were to attempt a gonthian form, it's base requirement would be a lizard-like animal with wings. The color of the creature, it's plumage if any and defining markings, as well as, in the case of gonthians, whether the wings are separate from or attached to the wings, is completely variable. However they cannot add traits from forms of other tribes, such as gills or fur, times in the past that these attempts were made the form has either never taken, or never presented the stolen traits. Also, once this form is taken, it can no longer be changed. After thought up, an Adrolan must maintain this mental image, and spend hours in concentration and meditation to teach themselves to morph into their desired form. This can take from a few days to a few years, depending on the size and relative differences to one's secondary (born with) form. This makes becoming extremely large or extremely small creatures an arduous task, though rare it is possible.

History of the Council of AdrolaEdit
After becoming settled into their new home, and after many of the, later-named, Adrolan mutations had come into effect, it became evident that some organization of the tribes was necessary. In order to figure out what type of government to create, each tribe nominated one of its eldest and most respected members and a committee was formed. After much debate, Rotorna Cagaliese, the representative from the Teraguin tribe, stood, immediately silencing the room. She looked around he table, at each representative. As they stared back at her, she proclaimed "We have it!, this shall be our government." She waved her hand outwardly in a circle as she spoke those words. The others looked around, and the room and burst out into laughter after the long and drawn out argument, realizing that she was right. From that point, the group of representatives, with the blessing of the tribe members, dubbed themselves the Council of Adrola. This was in the year 12,323 BBY. They had decided their positions would be elected, life long positions, and that upon their death or resignation, the tribe in which the Council member represented would elect a new councilor. Likewise, the spouse of the deceased councilor would take charge of their position, while the elections were pending or in process, occasionally being nominated and elected themselves. The tribe could also call for the resignation of a councilor if they feels, collectively that he or she is not representing them well enough. This spurred a new need for a structured educational system (detailed below). In 9,473 BBY, the Council of Adrola called upon the Adrolan people to form a party in order to explore it's sister planets. The councilors themselves split into three groups for the mission, one group stayed on Adrola for the safety of the people, and the other two traveled, each with a group of Adrolan men, one from each tribe, for protection and representation, to Bycttus and Caella. It was already known that there was a number of people on both planets from the Shi'ido/Human colonization in 25,791, but the history had been degraded, and no contact had been made since that time.
Relations with Caella and BycttusEdit
Upon arrival on Caella, it was discovered to be a watery planet, the surface of which was covered mostly by ice. Only one large continent was warm-looking, and green, so this is where they touched down. After landing in a thicket of trees, the first people the Adrolan's saw were a group of humans, clad in very little and/or loose clothing. They were greeted easily and it was noticed the Caellians were very laid back. Just like the Adrolans, the language they spoke was Galactic Basic, though had become distorted as it evolved over time. The party, as well as their ship, were taken to an open clearing near the ocean's edge. Here stood an enormous building in the center of a larger town. The trees had been cleared away, but the roads had been cut from the land, allowing the sea-water to pour through them. The buildings had a mother-of-pearl look to them of varying colors, and ships flew around the city. While there, the Adrolan Council members were taken to a upper floor of the central castle, where they explained their mission of exploration. Apparently, their historic records, not long after arrival to Caella in 25,791, were lost due to water damage. They had begun their new historical writings on data technology in 25,503, after many technological experimentation with the ship and other supplies they arrived to Caella in. It was for this reason that the Caellian's were shocked to hear the Adrolans even existed. From their view, the vegetation-covered planet was thought to be uninhabited all this time. It turned out that the Caellian government was set up in much a similar way to that of the Adrolans, with representatives elected from each of the sovereign countries of Caella. They would meet at the capital, where the Adrolans were welcomed, four times a solwak. The only difference being the Caellians also ellected a Ambassador, who inhabited the large capital building. This Caellian Ambasador, Silar Leynnor, served as a sort of a head council member. Ambasador Leynnor invited the Adrolans to remain on Caella to discuss their two planets, talk about possible trade relations, and allow scholars to update their records. After seventeen days on the planet Caella, it was decided that trade relations would be opened between Caella and Adrola. Apparently the people of Caella and Bycttus had been trading for some time prior to meeting the Adrolans.
It would be nice to say the mission to Bycttus was as welcoming, but that is most definately not the case. The people of Bycttus, when spotting the Adrolan ship, fired upon them. The Adrolan convoy crash landed in the middle of a hot and sandy desert. The crash killed the Walcka councilor and three of the Adrolan citizen representatives. They were left on the ship, while the others, many severely injured, were swarmed by Bycttan soldiers, and escorted to an underground prison. They would remain there for seventeen days, while being interrogated, and some even tortured, about their origins. No one believed they were from the "uninhabited" planet Adrola. The remaining group of twenty-seven was brought to the hot and dry stone cells dug into the surface where they remained for eighteen days. After this long and grueling time, where they were only given a glass of water each a day, they were brought out of the cells and taken to the lower, and cooler parts of the Bycttan underground city. There, they were escorted to the large "central collumn", home of the Bycttan King Kretor Hoy I, and were released into the custody of Caellian councilors, and most of the Adrolan representatives that went to Caella. Apparently, when the Caellians learned of the party of Adrolans sent to Bycttus, the Caellian Councilors stood, noticeably agitated, since their demeanor had been very easy-going in previous days. One of them ordered ships be made ready immediately, another ran to gather troops and reinforcements, and many were on commlinks trying to get information. The Adrolan Councilors stood and inquired what the problem was, sensing something was horribly wrong. They were then informed of the distrust Bycttans had for outside cultures, and the paranoia of their king, which was reflected in most Bycttan citizens. It had apparently taken many many years to build trust amongst the Caellian and Bycttan people for trading. The Caellian Ambassador Silar, feared the worst. After the captured Adrolans were released into the custody of the Caellians and the exploration party of Adrolans, the Bycttan King appolgized, explaining that a group of people had arrived many years back, exploring space for a mining mission, and tried to take over the planet, and escavate all of it's natural resources. Mostly a strong ore, used to make interstellar craft and weapons. This lead to a huge battle, where in, the general who lead the Bycttans, Wortov Hoy I, great grandfather of King Kretor Hoy I, became the Bycttan King after the death of every last outsider on the planet. This occurred in 9,854 BBY, 1,116 years after trade with Caellians opened up in 10,970 BBY. Still somewhat untrusting of their story, King Kretor agreed to form a party of his own, and along with the Caellian group present, travel to Adrola with the Adrolans.
Upon reaching the planet, the Caellians and Bycttans were surprised to see the massive population inhabiting the planet. King Hoy reluctantly issued an apology to all the people of Adrola for the deaths that occurred from the demise of the Adrolan spacecraft. They spent days, talking about trade and government in the councilor's hall on Adrola. They discussed the goods they had to offer, and the history of politics used on each planet, not sparing or withholding any gruesome details. The Bycttan King was asked by the Adrolan Councilors to form a council and step down. They realized that Kretor's rule was much more of dictatorship, after hearing the way he kept a stranglehold, based in paranoia, on his people. Hoy adamantly refused the Adrolan's request, nearly declaring war on them. However, he re-thought his position when Caellian Ambasador Silar made it clear the Caellians would stand behind the Adrolans, if the Bycttans resorted to violence. Apparently the Caellians had been displeased with the Bycttan government for some time, but due to their largely non-violent stance, they had taken no action. It was definately not for lack of technology, as that was one of their most valuable trade assets, but with another planet taking the forefront on the same stance, it empowered the Caellian's ideals, giving the people great confidence to defend them. Therefore, after another day or two of talks, Bycttan King Kretor humbly, yet reluctantly, stepped down. He agreed, as did many Adrolan and Caellian representatives, to help the colonies of Bycttus to ellect their own Councilors. This took the group on another trip to Bycttus. The development of the new government took two solwak, and the citizens of Bycttus were very open to the idea. Kretor's attitude eased a bit, seeing his people collectively pleased for the first time in a while. Afterward, it became evident the closeness between the three plaents would grow, creating a need for an even higher governmental council. It was former King Kretor who proposed the idea of the Tri-Core, his idea was backed by Ambassador Silar. The Adrolan Councilors mulled over the thought, and agreed under the stipulation that the Tri-Core be electable lifelong positions, much like the current Adrolan Councilor positions. The other's agreed, proposing that only Council members could be eligible for Tri-Core positions. After settled, Kretor Hoy and Silar Leynnor became the Bycttan and Caellian Tri-Core representatives. From the Adrolan's Urita Korr of the Morcrian tribe was appointed, having been a lead player in prior talks. It was decided, after much bickering over the location, that the Tri-Core's base would be situated on the moon. It was easy to agree on after proposed, being the perfect central point to all three planets. This cast a message to the people that they were connected. These Core Councilors called for a base to be built on the moon, which was known to the Adrolans as Cersol, to the Bycttans as Dorkova and to the Caellians as Elaria. Collectively, the moon is reffered to as the CED for short, and for lowered confusion. Eventually The CED system became the adopted name for the small, unknown region solar system. They also called for an educational facility to be built. This facility would be a supplement to the ten years of education received on one's planet, in the pursuit of a future council position. Students from all three planets seeking this career path would be sent here. In fact, regulation of the educational systems on the three planets was one of the first tasks of the CED Council (name of the three planetary councils combined), and the Tri-Core.
Henceforth, the Tri-Core has been the primary ruling body for all of the planets. They are the end all/be all of political and lawful matters that either involve the CED as a whole, or cannot be decided upon by lower council members. Other matters under Core Council jurisdiction include:
- Issuing political marriages, in order to strengthen ties between tribes, colonies, or countries on their respective planets, or between to improve matters between two different planets.
- Settling trade disputes between planets.
- Calling to he people, for the defense of one or all planets, if the need ever arose. The CED pretty much runs on a draft system.
- Creating rules for the people of the CED system to collectively abide by.
- Overseeing the removal of a Council member if the people call for it.
- Overseeing elections of new Council members, and the appointment of new Tri-Core members.
- and more...((basically the same duties as the President of the United States and the Supreme court combined. Plus a few others.))
Core Councilors are appointed by their planet's council, from within the council. Once that member becomes the Core Councilor, their spouse becomes the interim council member for their tribe until a new one can be elected for that position. If the Councilor's spouse was deceased prior to his or her appointment to the Core Council, they could then appoint a Councilor's Assistant, from their own tribe/country/colony, to replace them until elections can be held. If a Core Councilor's position is disputed or contested by the people, a planet wide vote is cast to determine whether they keep that position. Core Councilors and Planetary Councilors are all encouraged to step down from their positions instead of remaining until death, in order for their to be adequate time to hold elections for that position. Most follow this example, as they normally return to their home tribe/country/colony and live out the remainder of their days among family.
The Council of Adrola, Council of Caella, and Council of Bycttus, also known as the Tribal Council, Council of Countries, and Colonial Council respectively, have positions that are elected by their respective Tribe, Country, or Colony. These too are life long positions, however, anyone can issue a campaign request to the Tri-Core, which, after vetting would result in an election being held for that position, between the current and the contesting candidate. However, to ensure these such requests are kept to a minimum, elections are only held ever three solwak. campaign request can be sent in at any time, to be vetted, with the exception of a deadline 3 syswak prior to the beginning of the election solwak, but all campaign requests are released (approved or denied) at the same time, which would be the upcoming election period. The people can also protest, or call for the removal of a councilor. This take a petition, sighed by at least half if not more than half of the people of the tribe, who have completed their 10 years of education.
There are other positions within the government as well. Just below the Councilors are the Councilor's Assistants. There are anywhere from two to five assistants per Councilor. These are the most likely candidates for Counsilorship either through campaign request or at the death or retirement of a reigning Councilor. Below this are the students, undergoing an additional five years of education on the CED. Equal to CED students are the Family Representatives or "Head of House" within tribes. These are the oldest surviving members of a family and are based, unlike surnames, on the father's side of the family. For example; if a man were Head of House, he would oversee: his wife, his sons and unmarried daughters, his son's wives, his grandsons and unmarried granddaughters, and his grandson's wives, and so on. His Brother would have the same position over his wife, children and grandchildren in the same way. However if the two brother's father were still alive, then he would be the Head of House for both men and their afore mentioned family. Therefore, if the Head of House dies, his title moves along to his son or sons, and they become the Head of House for their families. This makes the Head of House responsible for family census reports, and are in direct contact with one their tribe's Councilor's Assistants. They are also the approvers of marriages within their house, and instigators of arranged marriages within or between tribes, that are agreed upon independently, among other things. Keeping in mind the Tri-Core does issues political marriages, but these occur primarily between councilors and their families. Because of the taxing job of Councilors, Male councilors or spouses of Female Councilors cannot act as Head of House within their families. Therefor, as in the case of the deceased, the sons of councilors become the Head of House. The Head of House is the only ruling position above Adrolan Citizenship
For children of Adrola, as well as Caella and Bycttus, formal education begins at age four. At this time is when each child attends a school within their own tribe for five solwaks. After competing this school, children are sent to a secondary school for an additional five solwaks. At age fourteen, children are considered adults, able to participate in elections and choose whether they wish to return to their tribe, travel to Cersol for further education, or leave the CED system ((the collective of the three planets and the moon.)) Theses three choices are listen in order of popularity, as most Adrolan children return to their tribes, and become apprentices in different fields, and very very few Adrolans have ever left the planet, beyond Cersol, Caella, or Bycttus. Until the age of fourteen, all children are required to obey their parent's instructions. This means must attend or remain home from school if told, etc... It is believed in Adrola that parenting is best handled by Parents and Grandparents, and that the government has no in the raising of children, beyond providing them with an education. Most Adrolan parents are very lenient with their kids giving them ample room to explore their surroundings. The planet in the "varried regions" is considered extremely safe. Thanks to the laws under the Tri-Core, and the strict rules of conduct in Adrolan customs, there is practically no crime, beyond offenses to customs, and therefore there is only a small prison on each planet, which in most cases is empty. Proactive stances toward prevention of crime have lead to the relatively peaceful nature of the Adrolan people.
In the CED system, children are considered to have reached adulthood at the age of fourteen. It is at this age that they graduate and move toward finding jobs. It is also at this age that a citizen becomes eligible to vote. Because there is no specified job training performed in an educational facility other than that of the CED school for political training, It would be up to the young adult to become an apprentice and train for a specific job. They are kept on as apprentices for five years in order to train for the job, before becoming independent at it. This applies for everything from teacher, doctor, mechanic, or farmer. Many will choose to take on a position following in their parent's footsteps.
Names and TitlesEdit
Addressing someone in Adrola can be a big deal. From the age that one can talk, Adrolan children are instructed to address all of their non-family member elders with Brother or Sister, before their first names. The only time surnames are used, in this case, is if there are two people with the same gender and first name in close proximity. The exception to this of course is one's peers and those younger, which are addressed by first name, surname, or both. Likewise, as one gets older, their peer group widens, therefore the older one becomes, the less likely they are to refer to someone with brother, or sister as a title. Unlike most other cultures, it is more polite to address someone by their first name, with a title added before the name, than their family name. Because boys take their father's surname, and girls take their mother's surname, these are seen as more personal or less formal if used. Even more informal, and seen as a sign of great affection would be to not address someone by their first or surname at all, but rather a secondary name. For example, a child would call their parents mom and dad instead of their names, likewise a younger sibling may call an older one Big Sister of Big Brother, or have a nickname. Parents often create nicknames for their children or call them son and daughter. Addressing grandparents i fairly uniform in it's tradition. One would refer to their grandparents as Father+surname or Mother+surname. and for great grandparents you would then begin adding "grand-" "great grand-" etc. For example, using a name below, Bant Tyran would refer to his paternal grandfather as Father Tyran and his grandmother as, making up a name, Mother Lokt. And if his paternal grandfather were still alive, he would be addressed as Grandfather Tyran. The only exception to this rule is the addition of political titles. A councilor would not be addressed as brother/sister, and only mother/father by their immediate family. In this case, the proper way to address them would be by title then first name. For example, Tyan Auk's grandfather on his father's side is the councilor of the Lykatsume tribe, therefore being addressed as Lykatsume Councilor Paahkor. However, his grandchildren would call him Father Auk. This is also true for Core Councilors, with the exception that the tribe name would be replaced by "Core". For example. if Lykatsume Councilor Paahkor were to ever be appointed to the Core Council, he would then be addressed as Core Councilor Paahkor
What not to say...Edit
Adrolans are like any other sentient being, but are subject to insult and are quick to correct grievances of this kind amongst their own. Throughout the planet, but most especially within the tribes, there is a strong sense of community. It is easy to offend many serpaqor by insulting one. One common insult is to be called a "pet". The idea of pets is greatly offensive to most Adrolans, but of course, as all things, that goes on an individual basis. Adrolans also tend to feel a strong connection to non and half sentient beings, especially those of the forms they can take on. Calling an Adrolan an "animal" can also be offensive, but not quite as much as "pet". There are of course worse things than this in galactic basic to be called, but for Adrolans it is near the top of the list.
Additional OOC NotesEdit
The idea for this species and it's planet was a mixture of inspiration from the Star Wars universe ((primarily Shi'ido)), a love of shape shifting in SL, a love of Star Wars, and the need to combine the two so that two RL siblings could find a way to connect, and become closer friends. This species is, for the most part, a complete invention from the minds of the people behind the avatars Miratae Avro and Tyan Auk. I, Miratae Avro, and my brother Tyan invite anyone who reads this, and so desires, to become an Adrolan, Caellian or Bycttan in SWRP, Sith, Jedi, and Human alike are welcome. The only thing we ask, is that you join our ((to be announced)) SL group, add your character(and avatar if different) name to the list below, and do your best to build your character with the background of the species in mind. Please read this page carefully if you do wish to join us as Adrolans in SWRP, and Welcome. Thank you for reading ^_^
((Please message me with suggestions for Caella and Bycttus if you have any, these two i have not concentrated on as much as the Adrola))
