Prekleks are two to three feet taller than humans and are much more heavily built. Their frames are extremely muscular in appearance and this is amplified by their trademark armour. Out of armour they are lizard like in appearance, their snouts only protrude slightly, emphasizing their sharp teeth. Prekleks are born with a tail, however, this tends to be removed at birth as their warriors view it as a weak point in battle. Once removed, a Preklek tail will grow back over time, and re-clipping is periodically needed. They are naturally immune to most diseases and poisons. Preklek can reproduce in much the same way as a lizard would, by laying eggs and having them fertilized, however, Preklek warriors tend to be cloned, as this is viewed to be more efficient due to some of the donor Preklek memories being retained. Accelerated growth is not used, and once cloned the Preklek develop naturally, their life expectancy is 225 years, and reach maturity in a matter of days. Naturally born Preklek follow the same life cycle, however, remain as eggs for 3 years before hatching. Preklek naturally have some genetic memory, and almost all Preklek from their side of the portal have undergone some form of genetic enhancement, which ranges from seeing in the dark, to excess muscle mass or speed.
Preklek are raised to believe that all other species are inferior. This is reinforced by their genetic memories and for some, the memories of their donor. The psyche of the Preklek is very complicated, but warrior based. They believe heavily that the only ways to prove themselves are in battle or through the advancement of their technology. They have come to think of mundane everyday tasks as below themselves, and other races should work for them. Every battle they undertake, they dedicate it to one of their three gods, and once in battle, experience no emotional attachment whatsoever. It has been said if they met their own parents on the battlefield, they would kill each other without a second thought and continue to fight everyone else there.
Preklek society is extremely advanced despite its brutal, tyrannical nature. They believe that in servicing the Preklek, other species are gaining favor in the eyes of the gods. In all 36 conquered Preklek dimensions, hunger, war, famine, and poverty are completely wiped out, for the most part the conquered species are treated like honored guests, and despite their slave status, Preklek society looks after them well, with harsh penalties for mistreating them. On the other side of the coin however, if a slave acts up in any way, the slave, their family, and any close friends are put to death. Preklek society itself is highly structured. At the top is the military, below which is the science academy, followed by the non combatant citizens who usually join the police force and then at the bottom the slave races. All Preklek know their place, and follow the chain of command to the letter. They look to battle and see it as a way to honor their families and deities. Preklek family units are structured in much the same way as society and are based on the members’ position. For example, if the female were a member of the military, and the male a member of the science academy the female would control the family unit. If one of the children makes it into the military, and none of the parents were members, then that child would take over the family unit until it found a mate of its own. Although most Preklek are cloned, a significant number of Preklek still have natural families and expect their slaves to care for the eggs till they hatch. It has been known for slaves to gain a high social standing by joining the science academy, although they are still not allowed in the military.
Preklek & Religion
The Preklek follow a series of three deities. It is believed that these deities are physical beings and that the religious Preklek, a sect of the military, are in direct contact with them, taking orders on where to go next with regards to their conquering. The three Preklek deities are Seliei, the God of Dimension, Chekari, the God of Space, and Krekai, the God of Time. All Preklek believe these deities control the time, space continuum and between them, make inter-dimensional travel possible.
Preklek were initially slaves on their own planet, a duel species world where the sapien species controlled everything an treated the Preklek poorly. Eventually, the Preklek revolted against their masters, and took over their home planet. A few decades later, they started their quest to conquer the multiverse. It is said that it was due to the three gods giving the Preklek advanced knowledge and technology that their revolt succeeded, but this is only known for sure by the religious sect of the military. Their recent attempt of conquest saw them drawn into a new realm where their technological advantage was nullified, and where strange powers existed. The inhabitants of this realm managed to hold them off until the Preklek opened a second portal behind the inhabitants front lines. This second assault took the world by surprise and several weeks past before it was successfully repelled. The portal was not closed, merely blocked with another portal, and as a result, many Preklek were left behind in this strange land known only as Hollow. These Preklek are aggressive, but without the direction of their command structure, lost and without direction. They do seek to get back home, but without free access to the existing portals, or the technology to make more, they remain stranded, trying to survive and make a life for themselves.
