The tianshen are a humanoid, almost fey-like species. They range in height from 152 cm (5′) to 182 cm (6′) with a lithe body frame, an elongated head and a triangular face. Most alter their appearance to suit their mood, function, or current area of interest.
The tianshen are almost single-minded in their pursuit of creating a perfect, beautiful, harmonious world. They love to create art in any medium they can find or create. Their species name means Explorer, and they take this literally, focusing their activities on studying and exploring the world around them. When possible, they turn this study into stunning works that have little function, but deep meaning to their creator.
The tianshen believe in the individual’s independence, but they have a strict caste system that individuals must operate within if they are going to be accepted by the community and allowed their independence. Ostracized tianshen have few resources, and therefore few choices.
Tianshen technology is the heart of their civilization, and it revolves around the astounding creation of Orahi.
They base all tianshen advancements on this nanotechnology, and a robust quantum network used for communications and as a backbone for their artificial intelligence system.
