Psilon – Library of the Controller
The Psilon are a gentle-natured and academically-oriented race of scientists, researchers, and analysts who strive to focus on their work above all else. In the quiet bustling capital city of Hadron, on their peaceful home world Mentar, there is a fabled institution which documents all knowable information of the galaxy called the Library of the Controller. The Library’s spires and columns rise above the otherwise unremarkable skyline of Hadron, but also branch out in a gnarled system of underground tunnels and bunkers beneath the city. It is a living, ever-growing entity which expands new information and data.

All information that the Quanta finds in the universe is fed back to desk of the Controller, the leader of the Psilon Quanta. and the overseer of all government-funded research groups. The Controller then uses the data as he sees fit before sending it to the Library of the Controller.
Despite the fact that the Library is the most expansive collection of knowledge in the galaxy, it is stored in physical and analog formats to protect against digital infiltration, theft, or loss. The written memories, observations, and findings of the Psilon Quanta are kept within its highly-protected and hermetically sealed walls. Thousands of years of data are carefully kept and curated by Librarians who dedicate their lives to memorizing small sections of the collection and serving those seeking information.

Only those with the clearance directly from the Controller of the Quanta may enter the highly secure facility. It is rare that non-Psilon are granted clearance and outsiders are usually only given access to the specific information that they requested. Frequently targeted by acts of espionage, the Library’s uniquely archaic defense system of limited digital infrastructure makes it a tough case to crack for external threats. If it were possible that an intruder found themselves in the Library, they would quickly become overwhelmed by the intentionally convoluted cataloging system.

No single Psilon, not even the Controller himself, has any way of knowing all that is hidden away in the recesses of the Library. The tidy halls are kept in a state of protective chaos so that no one person can know the exact whereabouts of a specific item from the catalog. Artifacts from lost races, observational accounts of rare phenomena, DNA samples from some of the most infamous beings in the galaxy, all of these things and more are what could be stumbled upon in the labyrinthine halls of the Library. Secrets valuable and mundane are stored away carefully for future generations, the Psilon’s greatest attempt at immortality kept hidden away from the public eye.
