Eipiânari are a techno-organic species of sentience from a planet known as Rivainth in the universe designated Ratrox Sonosum Omistal. At a population of roughly 3 Billion, the Eipiânari share the planet with several other, more populace species, choosing to linger in outskirts of nature where they carve their society into the habits of the planet. They exist in liminal spaces — towers in the mountain slopes, homes in the canopies of trees, buildings in the fields they grow their food — choosing to make themselves and the shapes of their culture exist in transition.
As a people, the Eipiânari evolved billions of years ago, but their current culture (and, by virtue, their name) came into existence roughly 5,000,000 years ago. The Eipiânari follow a philosophy, set of laws, legislative guide and social architecture known as Eipiâ which is so absolute, within their eyes, that it is followed to a fault: there is no question too mundane or too philisophical that Eipiâ cannot provide the answer to. Because of this, the Eipiâ have earned themselves a mighty force and presence on Rivainth and brought the planet to the forefront of the star system they inhabit, including legislative power within the Ring of Power.
The 14 Ruling Planets within the Ring of Power are as follows:
While the Rivainthari are a varied group of people (some, looking more like humans than most exo-species distant from Earth while some are more elongated and elven) the Eipiânari are a devoted, unique and varied species even among themselves. On Rivainth it is said that you cannot wander more than a few sprints of the sun before meeting an Eipiânari. But they are always kind, and giving, less the Stárŝyl be told of a falling away from the truth of Eipiâ. This is because the Eipiânari do not exist perpetual to themselves; they are free to follow what feels right, to them. Their own truth is absolute, as instinct and feeling is the guiding principle of their ways — a term known as nijan. The Eipiâ phrase, directly from its original writing and teachings, surmises their ideaology and reason for interaction, exploration and knowledge best: Tâl wie tâl jei.
The Cetyre are the four paths of bloodbound duties the Eipiânari born directly of Rivainth categorize into: Dizthari, Serdcethari, Zimtruthari and Ygreowthari. All four paths of the Cetyre are metaphorical, conceptual and literal. They are considered tangible parts of the whole of the society — which is, itself, considered a body within the ocean of bodies that create the whole system of creation. For the Eipiânari, life itself exists in constant growth with one another, no single part more or less important, only acting out on its own truth. The Cetyre function on what is best for all, treating each Eipiânari as another cell of the body all Eipiânari come to represent. If even one cell is sick, the entire body is sick. This has allowed them adaptation despite their strict seeming code: if a Eipiânari is altered, or has offspring with another species, the child is also Eipiânari, no matter its genetic construct. Being Kullthari someone is not exactly a claim to anything more than the truth of being Eipiânari.
Dizthari • The Mind of the Eipiânari, metaphorically manifesting governance over the memory and thoughts of the species. Because of this, the Dizthari and its leaders — the Diz themselves — are the Eipiânari who are referred to in matters of consideration, contemplation of new learning, culture and society, and record keeping. They educate, guide and recruit Eipiânari for roles in society similar to scholars, philosophers, librarians, teachers, artists and historians.
Serdcethari • The Heart of the Eipiânari, metaphorically manifesting governance over the sentiments and feelings of the species. Because of this, the Serdecethari and its leaders — the Serdce themselves — are the Eipiânari who are referred to in matters of feelings, sensations and reasons for reactions. They educate, guide and recruit Eipiânari for roles in society similar to doctors, therapists, caretakers, spiritual advisors and priests.
Zimtruthari • The Body of the Eipiânari, metaphorically manifesting governance over the interactions of Eipiânari society with others — acting as eyes, hands, mouth, ears, legs for the culture as a whole. Because of this, the Zimthruthari and its leaders — the Zimtru themselves — are the Eipiânari who are referred to in matters of government, military, war, and culture. By far the vastest section of the Cetyre, they educate, guide and recruit Eipiânari for roles in society similar to anthropologists, armed forces, special forces, government, diplomats and ambassadors.
Ygreowthari • The Truth of the Eipiânari, metaphorically manifesting the greatest power over the people by holding reference to the necessity and true callings of the Eipiânari. Because of this, the Ygreowthari and its leaders — the Ygreow themselves — are the Eipiânari who are referred to in matters of callings, exploration and trade. They educate, guide and assist Eipiânari in exploring any of the other Cetyre paths, or occupations within them, while holding positions similar to industrial leaders, agriculturists, explorers, judges, lawyers and police.
Coming in a variety of forms, the Eipiânari typically present in natural metallic ore shades like graphite and cerulean. Their bodies, un-gendered by nature, are made up of three core forms of matter: they are, roughly, made up of an average of 37.9 kilograms of varied tripolymer composites, 42.6 kilograms of inoreskar (a ferromagnetic metallic material) and some measure of kilograms of individual and unique biomaterials — typically found in the heart, brain, or other vital organs. All Eipiânari are only physically weak in this final detail — and only a massivly powerful and mythological user of magic (like Hugo Hwang) can affect the organic matter within them. All Eipiânari have their appearance alter hues based on their individual use of zarâre (the way electricity colors titanium) but retain, no matter what, vibrantly colored eyes.
Every Eipiânari — even other species converted into the new culture — is enhanced physically in diverse ways. On average, each Eipiânari who comes directly from the Rivzarâre has the basic assessment of: quantum wave randomization (as is similarly seen in a Fourier series) which alters their minds to make them incapable of being read, altered or controlled by psionic or empathic gifts (note: psionic eipiânari are different); gravimetric inception of their own biomaterial to affect density, mass, strength, speed, reaction time and metabolization; cellular structures ranging from nanite technology down to picomite or femtomite technology, meaning they can splinter into waves of fully controlled individual tech, turning into millions, billions, or even trillions of pieces of themselves to infiltrate, rewire and adapt from the inside out of new technology.
As all is of equal value among the Eipiânari, they do not recognize gender or gendered roles — instead, they understand birthing roles and even then, they are only considered when speaking of and deciding upon which Eipiânari should breed. Their presented gender traits are enhanced only by virtue of interaction with other cultures. Even their terms for birthing roles are multifaceted, proving that their belief in these things are a natural truth as well, rather than some forced ideal of what and how a body should function. The Viézuxli and the Dhūfusci are the only assignments that can be given to any Eipiânari. Because of this, every Eipiânari exists with no semen or ova, though their bodies produce both seminal fluid and ejaculate proteins.
All Eipiânari exist with three names to their individuality: their pathway, their tradition and their darling names. The Rutalakk is assigned to them at birth, to trace their truth back to origin; their Itiksunna is earned through life and is, occasionally, replaced with nicknames; and finally, their Serdce is a name that only comes to their truth when they fall into devoted love. Through Eipiânari do not have married or family structures, their capacity to love is eternal, making it so that the Serdce is only spoken to their lover-for-life, not just any partner they love and have sex with.
The Eipiânari are an egalitarian utopia, functioning on the basic belief that all members of the species are equal to all others. Even those lauded as heroes or leaders are not destined to live any better, or worse, than the others of their society. Every nemgogsa is shared among the entire species (so far as they can manage). Because of this, the Eipiânari do not have any economic or currency based system naturally. While there are Xrem among them, their role in society is simpler than barter or trade systems: the Xrem work to help distribute all resources and knowledge evenly among the Eipiânari so that they may find their truth. Because of this, all Eipiânari, no matter their circumstance on Rivainthari, live well. Endless supplies of food, materials, weapons and all else are constantly shared with all. The only notion of Economy that they have resembling anything Earth knows is the idea of a 'living ownership'; as long as an Eipiânari is sustaining on an area of land, it belongs unto them, as do the goods they create from individual materials. Because of this, they are allowed to excel with their talents, crafting unique goods they can give out, doing so on a basis of honor and pride - and renown. Once an Eipiânari dies, however, all property belonging to them is distributed to their Seruzitji.
While Eipiânari have children, and even grow their Seruzitji, they do not hold onto the idea of parentage. Instead, once a child is born, it is no longer the responsibility of either parent. Each child is raised by the local representatives of the Cetyre instead, so they may find a way to localize, ground and realize their truths completely, while building their own Seruzitji among the other Eipiânari they are growing with. Because of this, Eipiânari cannot actually get pregnant unless it has been decided upon by the Cetyre who have decided that the mating of two peoples would improve the whole of the species. This has, in some universes and worlds that the Eipiânari have visited, been overriden within their biology but it is extremely rare. Mostly, new Eipiânari not from Rivainth are made by a conversion to Eipiâ and the upgrade of Eipiânari enhancement to the bodily system — this foreign conversions are the most common way Kullthari come their way.
Eipiâ Vamdus • The Eipiâ believed that there had to be reasons for their eternity. This created a two-fold belief: the Eipiâ Vamdus and the Jùfin Xosak Sajhanu. Eipiâ Vamdus defends that it is the duty of the strong to guard the weak, and as the strongest, the Eipiânari typically align themselves with those who are without hope. A Lost Cause is, to an Eipiânari, the greatest virtue to defend and protect.
Jùfin Xosak Sajhanu • Eipiâ Vamdus taken a step further: as the Eipiânari do not naturally die, they find ways to earn a righteous and true death. By earning such, they are able to become as beautiful as other species, other entities, other contents of the universes. Some Eipiânari warriors take this oath as pact and, in their essence of defending Lost Causes, they function in seek of death. This has created a notion of Absolute Candor spread as rumors about the Eipiânari — it is said that if you challenge an Eipiânari, death will paint one of you and this is an absolute truth. The warriors who do follow Jùfin Xosak Sajhanu believe in being even more frank than other Eipiânari, however, and hold no thought back which is the truth behind the rumor of their Absolute Candor cult.
Qatal Kyssen Am'iina • Also, occasionally, Suiha Kyssen Am'iina, is the phrase that the Jùfin followers (those of Absolute Candor) give before drawing their weapon. It is true that only one survives the average with with a Jùfin, as they seek for death and, therefore, only exact death unto others.
Bisaa Haril Zistav Pajhi • Also, occasionally, Bisaa Zipahj, the phrase is both a greeting and a farewell, a blessing unto all they meet. Even enemies are blessed this way, as Eipiânari believe that an adversary is only there to teach and grow you to your absolute truth. In this way, almost especially, your adversaries deserve respect and an abundantly beautiful afterlife.
Vawasyi Raqux • The unique nature of the Eipiânari weaponry consists of a use of three materials fused together to create weapons that are completely familiar to the Eipiânari whom they were made for — and as such can be manifested and called to arms through time, space and barriers. The materials are: Afsturium, Totusium and Llythyrenium. Only Eipiânari can manage to combine these materials so exactly that there is no detriment to the crafter, anyone else induces chaos and psychosis.
