Helashio

Lor slave class & Co-inhabitors of Lor

Helashio overview

The Helashio were once the slave race of the Lorath, and served the needs of the Lorath Matriarchy species. Often the Helashio were not considered to be “people” but since the contact with Yamatai and within recent years, they have begun to gain more freedom. Now Helashio are treated as equal as they desire, their servitude of course voluntary. Helashio now are allowed to learn what they wish, open businesses, leave the planet, and even enter into military service. The Helashio race have also been given the fourth planet of the Hici'Emi system as their own home now (Which is monitored by the LSDF). With the new freedoms granted to the Helashio, a sizable portion of work has been left to be taken up by the Lorath as well.

Helashio bear a resemblance to “humans” due to their overall appearance and lack of body hair. The distinguishing features of a Helashio are eyes with large pupils, a complete lack of body hair on the body other than the head of the individual, and a prehensile tail that varies in length from two feet to five. The tails are functional in all aspects, from being completely prehensile, to giving them amazing balance while in movement. In past times before Yamataian interferance, Helashio were kept under-educated to keep them unassuming and complacent. However, since then, there have been programs established to provide education to Helashio which desire intellectual enlightenment. Helashio are taught as much as they desire to learn, and are not forced to learn if they do not wish to. Helashio individuals often have a superior ability for endurance and survivability in wilderness environments, much of this is accomplished by redundant organs and several pints of blood more than a “human”.

Playing a Helashio

Welcome to the existence of a Helashio. Once the slave race of the Lorath, the Helashio have now gained their freedom and are able to do most anything. While not as popular as the Lorath senators and politicians, the position is always open for them.

During the existence of a Helashio, an individual is taught much the same as a Lorath and any other normal person. Of course they are not sent to the caste houses, simply because they are not part of the castes of the Lorath. Helashio individuals before were conditioned to be absent of complex emotional responses, yet now they are allowed to feel and act as they wish, so long of course that is within the law. Helashio are no forbidden from learning ideals that would inspire ideals of freedom and humanity and are now encouraged and even taught such.

Helashio, since having been given their own system and planet to live, have reverted back to tribal groups, formed in the tradition of their ancestors, where many of their old practices such as crafting and story telling are carried out. Helashio individuals in this setting live just as their ancestors did.

The existence of a Helashio, once completely devoted to the service of their master or the service to their shamanistic task master, are now allowed to live as they choose and please. Helashio individuals are trained and conditioned to follow the rules and tasks set before them if they choose to enter indentured servitude. Otherwise they are given training to enter into Lorath society with the skills needed to work and be a productive citizen.

Collars

Helashio are rarely collared now, mostly those who are trained for servitude yet seem to be unable or unwilling to learn what they need.. For more information, see Slave Collars.

Appearance of a Helashio

Helashio bear a resemblance to “humans” due to their overall appearance and lack of body hair. The distinguishing features of a Helashio are eyes with large pupils, a complete lack of body hair on the body other than the head of the individual, and a prehensile tail that varies in length from two feet to five. Ears of Helashio have been noted to have a radical variation between those drawn close to the skull, a common trait among most humanoids, to ears which appear like those of a primitive primate, perched upon the skull.

Male Helashio are often 5’5 to 7’5 feet in height. They tend to have a compact muscular build, one that would be suitable for an acrobat, or an Olympic runner. Male tails often are shorter, and less flexible than the tails of female Helashio. Male Helashio often maintain a physical appearance of youth until their middle age years. Helashio Males tend to live to be the age of 110 human years.

Female Helashio are often 4’5 to 6 feet in height. Female Helashio physical builds vary depending on their assignment. Females who work in manual labor intensive fields tend to have a larger build; this large build is comprised mainly of fatty tissues. In some cases a female Helashio who works in manual labor may have a similar build to that of a male Helashio. Female Helashio bust sizes typically range from a B cup to an H cup.

All appearances stated do not include the effects of surgical alteration.
