Homeworld Kamsho


One of four intelligent races that have evolved on an ancient homeworld of the Kamir - once known as Kamm Shohob, now known as Kamsho. All four races on Kamsho are creations of the Kamir.

Physical Data

Opodian adults average about five feet in height, bipedal with two arms with clawed hands and two squat legs with clawed feet. Their primary fur coloration is white, although they all bear distinctive and varying black patches all over their bodies.



The Opodians were originally developed by the Kamir as an experiment in fierce, relentless devotion to their creators. The overseer of the experiment was a Kamir named Opodi, in whose honor they built statues and temples. They formed a religion around Opodi, but she and all the other Kamir eventually fled the world to escape the Hiver War. The Opodians have maintained their faith, however, and their zealotry has not been diluted by the ages. They are virulently opposed to all sacrilegious transgressions against their goddess and they have fought wars against the Llivori over lands deemed sacred.

Language, Phrases, and Naming Conventions

All Opodians usually share the same last name, regardless of family: Opo'te, or "of Opodi." However, when an Opodian has fallen out of favor with their family or the Great Temple, they are known as the Zo'te, or "of Nothing."
