Sexual Orientation: varies as it does in humans

Family Life and Child-rearing: The Chaos, being solitary, rarely live in family units. The female cares for the young for the first 5 years: between the ages of 5-10 the parents take turns teaching hunting skills to their offspring: by the age of 10 children are expected to live independently

Weaknesses: cold sensitivity: purification and exorcism spells

Diet: carnivorous

Hierarchy: The Chaos are solitary and thus do not adhere to a hierarchal system. They recognize strength but they would never allow themselves to be ruled.

History Brief Overview: The Chaos began life as beasts, with only the faintest whisper of sentience. A sentience muted by their primal appetites. They ravaged the planet. Predatory. Immoral. Hungry. Chaos personified. Relations between the Void and Chaos were hostile in the beginning. Lone Void were subject to being hunted/raped/challenged. As the races are fairly evenly matched (the Void have magic, the Chaos have immense speed and strength) it never came to pass that they had any significant effect on one another’s population. Once the Chaos developed their own language the Void decided to initiate formal contact. They developed a language based on gestures, body language, and hand signals called Kinesics (a language they continue to use despite the introduction of translator technology by the Void). While the two races do experiment sexually they are not reproductively compatible.

The Chaos forsake technology and all the comforts of modern living due to their philosophical leanings. Though they maintain many of their primitive instincts, they are capable of a certain coarse civility. Like the Void they are largely hunter gatherers. The Chaos are desert-dwellers.

The Chaos produce very little in the way of art, they do have a style of singing called “Tenebris Canticum” which is something between a chant and a song. The songs themselves are sung in a very low register and have a peculiar and pleasing vibrational quality. As they have no written language theses songs are a way of remembering specific things, most of which have to do with hunting and desert survival.
