TUATHEAN

The Tuathean are an early space-faring race distinguished by their long and pointed ears. Tuathean hail from many worlds and have been space-farers for so long that they define themselves and each other according to their colony of origin. These tall, thin humanoids include a variety of distinct sub-races, but are all instantly recognizable by their pointed ears.
Sly, calculating beings, Tuathean prefer to avoid trouble and stick to the shadows until an opportunity to act without undue danger to themselves presents itself. They are not cowards per se, but have a healthy respect for fatal situations. Much of this is attributed to their long lives. It is believed that if a Tuathean does not die of some trauma or disease, they might live forever. They never advance to an age of degeneration, middle age. Tuathean always appear physically youthful even if their temperament shows their true age.
With their long lives, Tuathean possess a great amount of confidence, and they believe that there is nothing they can’t accomplish. While this innate attitude could lead to feelings of superiority, most Tuathean don’t look down on others. They believe in themselves and are proud and strong, but they rarely project any negativity toward those of other species.Personality: Tuathean are calculating, pragmatic, and charismatic people. Generally, they try to avoid being swept up in open conflict, preferring instead to duck into shadows where they can observe, plan, and prepare to act in the most advantageous way possible. When they do take action, Tuathean tend to be dedicated, intense, and focused, sometimes appearing obsessive and single-minded to other species.

Physical Description: Tall thin Humanoids with pointed ears, Tuathean  average about 2 meters tall. Skin shades run from jet black to very pale, hair from black to blond. Men are usually taller and heavier than women. Tuathean achieve maturity about the age of 30 and have no limit to their age.

Home Worlds: Various, there are near limitless ancient Tuathean colonies scattered all across the galaxy but a few colonies still survive in the Human dominated galaxy. Most Tuathean do not stay in one place for too long and all have the drive to return home at some point in their long lives. Tuatha is the home world where the Tuathean began their exploration of the galaxy so many millennia ago. Tuatha is often referred to as the Old World as it is the fountain of Tuathean culture.

Languages: Tuathean speak, read, and write one of the thousands of dialects of Danaan as well as the Galactic Trade language. They can learn any other language but may not be physically able to speak some of them.
