Metahumans or Menace?!
Axenokeanos, or Axenok for short, is a very large water covered planet in the outer reaches of the galaxy. It is home to hundreds of thousands of unique life forms, most of them dwelling beneath the waves. The Planetary Ocean covers the vast majority of the surface, but there are a number of minor continents and archipelagos.
The odd thing about the planet’s wildlife is that the ocean food chain drops off at a strange point. Fossil records say that there used to be millions of super predators on the planet, but they all died out around the same time. Many biologists believe that another animal that died out around the same time may have been responsible for the plague that killed most of the Axenokan predators. This allowed one of the smaller predators to dominate the planet.
Just about every corner of Axenokeanos is home to a reptilian humanoid race known as the Axolted. Before they joined the space-faring races they lived peacefully on their backwater planet. Their ascension wasn’t pleasant, however. Because of their unique abilities and obvious intelligence, some thought the Axolted could be trained and used as weapons or tools, but the ones that came to claim them underestimated the Axolted’s cunning. The invaders were wiped out and the Axolted re-purposed all of their technology.
