- and Hezak
Before the Visitors, they had a very tribal and family oriented social structure. Then came these Visitors. Strange machines descended from they sky and dwelled on the surface. The Visitors traded with the Hezak, technical marvels known as the mag-repulsor harnesses for ore common on the world. The mag-repulsor harness creates a magnetic field that protects an individual Hezak from the deadly storms of the world, and became prized possessions. From the moment a child is weaned from the mother, it is given a harness. This brought open conflict and expansion on their world. No longer were they limited to their progress based on weather.
Then suddenly one day, the Visitors disappeared. The Hezak had come to rely on them, but they were nowhere to be found. A slow panic broke out. As generations passed, and the harnesses began to breakdown or get destroyed from conflict, they became more and more valuable. Wars were often fought over them, and warlords rose to power merely for possessing a working harness.
However, the Visitors had already taught the Hezak some things, like home building an metallurgy. These were the first steps in their technical evolution. Eventually the Hezak progressed far enough to reverse engineer some of the ancient harnesses, and build there own, as well as several variations. This lead to the Hezak's current mastery of mag-tech, as seen in their starships and weapons.
The Hezak had already established bases on 3 worlds in their home system when they were discovered by Saunos. A Fairin nation.
