General Description Edit
The Liir have not been a star–faring species for long. Until recently, the Liir were a peaceful race with limited technology. Various agrarian and nomadic cultures operated within the rich waters of their home world and war was virtually unknown to them. Although they had not developed far in the sciences of architecture or ballistics, some Liir societies were extremely advanced in bio–engineering, aquatic horticulture, volcanic engineering and metallurgy.
The Liir were enslaved by the Great Old Ones, a group composed of 28 former Voices of Muur who left their world to live in space, they were given the derisive name of Suul'ka. The Suul'ka established several lucrative industries on Muur, the Liirian homeworld, and force–marched the Liirians through the Industrial Revolution by employing them as slaves in mines, factories and manufacturing facilities so they could build them gigantic armors to allow them to survive in outer space and live forever.
After several decades of abuse, realizing that the greed and rapacity of the Suul'ka would destroy the aquatic environment of their home world completely, the Liir rebelled against their elders. The war was remarkably bloody in its early stages but finally ended when the Liir gave their latest Voice of Muur the last battlesuit they ever built, so he could fight and kill every last one of them. The Black, as he became later known, single-handedly slew 12 of the 28 Suul'ka, forcing them out of Muur and into the dark of space. The Black gave them pursuit, killing 9 more and nearly killing a tenth. Currently, there's only 7 Suul'ka left alive, without counting The Black.
The current state of Liirian technology is a result of their successful rebellion. The former slaves of the Suul'ka quickly absorbed the abandoned technology of their masters and have adapted the old drives, guns and orbital elevators to their own use. Driven by natural curiosity and the desire to preempt any further assaults from the stars, the Liir have now begun exploring space. Later on, they integrated a faction of Zuul who converted to the human religion of Christianism known as the Presters, forming the Liir-Prester Zuul Alliance.
