Overview

The outer rim world of Avalon is a beautiful utopia world. Its magnificent tropical forest, water falls and clean atmosphere is known by all. Though, Avalon has not always been a beautiful utopia world that many of the other races seen as. This world was once shared by two intelligent species that are in a lot of ways similar who at first for centuries lived separate lives and in different parts of the world. The Kilitaran a vicious predator race dominated the forest floor while the Finilya lived peacefully above in there tree top cities.

Kilitaran as they became more advanced especially during the earlier era of the Star League began to have more conflicts with Finilya. Fighting would occur often mostly leading a slaughter of the non aggressive finilya communities. When time came that the world was threaten by Yazerin invaders the adversity forced the two races that belonged to Avalon to join up and fight for the sake of there world. The battle was horrifying and much was destroyed as the technology of the Yazerin's was certainly more superior. The long time allied star elves luckily stepped in to aid eventually driving the Yazerins back.

On the eve of victory story remains in conflict but according to the Finilya the Kilitarans attempted to seize control of Avalon and dominate it. This action was thwarted and with the aid of the star elves. As a result of the Kilitaran defeat it was recommend by star elves that for the safety of the finilya people the kilitaran should be banished to a distant world many light years away. This split has given birth to the undying hatred the Kilitaran have for the Finilyas.

The world Avalon lacks technology by choice and has only accepted small amounts of it to allow them to be an active member of galactic community. Though as a general policy the Fanelia have been known to reject technology that isn't necessary.

At an over looking mountain side a typical finial city is constructed with beautiful spiraling buildings integrated with the jungle canopy of there world. What was once rickety rope bridges are not elongate wood suspension bridges. Among some of the ironwood trees star ports and landing pads are constructed as well as buildings. The Finilya buildings lack any kind of integrated machinery such as elevators and stairs are used everywhere. Even lighting is done though burning candles and magical dancing lights spells.

This very conservative ideal of construct is directly tied to the Finilya love for things natural. They religiously respect all life and unnecessary extermination of it a taboo. Thus there cities are integrated with the forest and the Finilya zealous vegetarians. The concept of eating once a live creature is barbaric in there eyes and so they stick foods that are created plant growth or harmless taken from animals. A good example of foreign food made though nonviolent treatment of life that has been vastly accepted among there society is ice cream.

Finilya though have a longer life span then most races there house holds are generally split up and small. Family is often distant and only met for rising children.

Since most Finilya are so passionate with life they often become spirit walkers or often called the druids of space. All life has a soul and all things found in nature have a sprit that can be communicated with the proper training. The Finilya have mastered these skills and as a result have learned to manipulate the forces of nature into natural magic. Only a select few every under go training that allows develop these magical skills, most common finilya only ever learn to feel and speak with near by sprits. Though the Finilya who aren't spirits walkers and who are among the liberal bunch leave Avalon on journeys to see the stars. Some travel to Earth where they participate in the Confederation as diplomats and ambassadors while others travel to meet spirits of distant worlds.
