A Brief Summary of the Greckan
Deep in the recesses of the universe, Erchius grows and develops. This resource, highly desired for the development of FTL drives, is more advanced than previously thought.

The events of the Erchius Mining Facility aren't the only occurance of Erchius infecting a host. In fact, a new species has been born of this union. The Greckan have emerged on a quest for knowledge. Knowledge of Erchius, the universe, what they truly are, and why they were created...

Greckan are composed of hybrid, organic-mineral structures. With their crystal features being a side effect of the ability for Erchius to alter their genetic code.

The Greckan value architecture and fine artisan crafts. This is stemming from the social hierarchy that exists due to the crystals that grow from their skulls.

Despite their skilled craft ranging from house wares to exquisite weapons, Greckan value diplomacy above conflict. They retain peace as they continue their hunt for knowledge of the mystery of Erchius and their own existence.

Will you plan to add quests, villages, and other stuff for this race? You know, the kind of stuff that the Elithian races mod has added?
