The Aquarians are perhaps the most mysterious of all the System's intelligent races. They hail from the world of Aquos, a planet covered 98% by water. While they are amphibious creatures that can in fact walk on land, they prefer to spend most of their lives in the water. In fact, most of their major cities are deeply underwater.
They claim their ancestry is linked to supposedly mythical sea dragon. But it's more likely and more widely believed that they are in fact just a highly evolved and intelligent species of amphibian. However, the dragon connection would explain their incredible magical abilities. Aquarians are very fast, and have some of the strongest Aurika powers in their Star System.
Despite their extremely great raw Aurika power, however, they are at a great disadvantage outside of the water. This is due to their extremely fleshy bodies and weak bone structure. They do enjoy great speed in their swimming, however, and only the Draygun have any chance of keeping up with them in a race through the water. Due to their many weaknesses outside of water, although they can live outside of water for extended periods of time, off-world, Aquarians are limited to peripheral roles in League society.
The Aquarians are very graceful creatures and are considered one of the most beautiful species in the entire League of Worlds. Their ventral fins can double as arms and legs, although their manual dexterity is greatly limited. They don't really need manual dexterity, though, because of the intensity and fine-tuning of their Aurika powers from an extremely young age.
Their cities are built and greatly protected by magic. While the Aquarians themselves are squishy, their cities are virtually impenetrable. Their race possesses extremely powerful weaponry, so no world would ever dare war with them.
The most famous Aquarian is Saqi Nero. Once one of the championed warriors of the League, he later spent many years on the Council of Twenty-One for the League of Worlds. As he aged, however, he relented his seat to his young nephew Akki. He would make a name for himself in the worst possible ways.
Despite Akki's tarnishing of the Aquarians' reputation in the League, Saqi uses his still good name and influence throughout the System. He continues to organize many charitable functions to bring necessities to the less fortunate. Saqi is always a Voice of Reason and often goes out of his way to perform random acts of kindness.
His two wives, Jaqi and Geeni are almost equally as famous as Saqi. But besides Jaqi being a great ambassador for her race across the League, she and her co-spouse use Saqi’s reputation to their advantage in living extremely pampered lives.
