Noqtuar

The Noqtuar are highly adaptable, tough skinned humanoids with distinctively flat faces that look to humans as if they were constantly frowning or grimacing. In general, the slightly yellow colored Noqtuar are stocky and deliberate in motion.

Most Noqtuar are very stubborn, and often belligerent in nature, although they are in general much more impressed by a persuasive argument than violent activity, a somewhat ironic circumstance considering their warlike nature. It may be that this very warlike nature means that the Noqtuar tend to see more physical disputes than intellectual ones, and thus are all the more impressed by the latter. Both factions of Noqtuar society, the Free Noqtuar Alliance, and the Homeworld Preservation League, are led by strict, oppresive military regimes, although the FNA tends to look more towards the wishes of its subjects than the HPL.

The Noqtuar have been involved in an all-encompassing war for decades, with the colonies fighting for independance from their homeworld of Noqtin. This is the first space-borne war that Noqtuar society has ever faced, although the Noqtuar do have a long history of warfare.

The Noqtuar are less advanced than the majority of the galaxy, having only achieved efficient interplanetary travel within the past 150 years, and were just beginning to experiment with energy weapons when they were contacted by Lobic Arms. Since that time Lobic Arms has been supplying both factions in the war with high-tech weaponry, effectively using the Noqtuar as test subjects for their new weapons designs.

The Noqtuar come from the Nethin system and are confined to that system, although they have colonized every body in the system. The Noqtuar are unknown to the galactic community at large, having only ever had contact with the Lobic Arms corporation, which considers the Noqtuar to be their most closely guarded secret.
