Yu'Jal are a hyper-intelligent race of aquatic insectoids, native to their oceanic homeworld, Yin-Mushu Heer. They are a curious species, learning as much as they can about the universe and wonders, became an advance interstellar species with crystalline-organic technologies which arned them the membership of joining the Elemental Ascendance
Their species have the similiar evolutionary developments to creatures with bioluminescence like cephalopods and jellyfish. Meaning they are partly made out of water. Their cells developed a harder layer of skin around their bodies after leaving the waters. Seeing as they are unable to move around outside aquatic enviroments they were given bio-engineered enviromental suits. The spider-like legs would help them maintain balance and long arms to grab hold of objects. The Yu'Jal's elongated can reach the height of a human adult. Their native language is well known to be clicking and small screeches. They adapted the technology to communicate with other races.
Culture and SocietyEdit
After joining the Ascendancy they believed that understanding the unknown became their calling, their technology evolved at an incredible rate to gather knowledge of the species' culture, biology, evolution and many things to know of the lifeforms, even to know of the planets and stars. Though they are cautious when meeting new civilizations and understanding them, should they encounter a race that has yet to leave their homeworld and a Level 1 civilization they sent out probes to the surface to gather data for the Aqua Alliance before making first contact with that native race.
The Yu'Jal started out as ordinary creatures on their oceanic homeworld about 51,700 B.C' when they began to develope intelligence and sentient thought. An expedition ship came to the Lubari system to study new alien lifeforms on Yin-Mushu Heer where they encountered the Yu'Jal, despite their lack of advance technology they reponded well to the exploer's communications. They soon became used to the outworlders and especially to the Aqua believing them to be a higher race as any other beings in the Elemental Ascendance.
The Yu'Jal started off using traded technology from allied races until later on they had learn to grow crystalline structures into buidings, ships and weapons from their organic enviromental suits. They're are able to recognise DNA signatures only to Yu'Jal or some closes members of the Ascendance they are trusted with. Their enviromental suits are also capable of allowing them to communicate to their vessels, even without them. They are even well known for their powerful energy web technology to defend the fleet, also use capture and shut down or reboot all power to hostile/intruding vessels except the life support systems.
