Encyclopedia Akashica: Lekru

RACE: Lekru



PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Lekrus have hard skin that resembles Earth armadillo shells or the armor of tundias from Vorellis IV, and often have ridges and bumps that distinguish one class of Lekru from another. They are various heights and weights and have three genders: male, female, and gender neutral.

CULTURE: Lekrus love anything to do with earth culture. The first human landed in 1801 on their planet and infected it with Earth culture frenzy. They will pay top dollar for Earth books, comics, clothes, appliances and other bits and bobs. They collect a lot, but are always extremely organized and tidy and have many different filing systems and cabinets in their homes for collections. They have even gone so far as having a given name and an Earth name. Most go by their earth names.

PERSONALITY TRAITS: The Lekru’s are what Earth people would call “Nerdy”. They have shrewd personalities that annoy most other species. They are always trying to make deals or get into arguments to get their point across.

MONETARY SYSTEM:  Lekrus have four classes that are based on accumulation of possessions. Wealth is measured by the value of an individual’s Earth Stuff collection. Before humans landed, wealth was based on the number of shiny rocks Lekrus could amass.

REPRODUCTION: All Lekru children are created from cellular samples extracted from two partners. They don’t have to be of the opposite sex since there is a Neutral gender. The cellular samples are combined in a special machine called the “Egg Scrambler”. (The Lekru think that’s a pretty funny Earth joke, by the way). The Egg Scrambler combines the cellular samples, and a baby is born within 1 Almephlublu year.
