The Drenkend are a species of basically sapient tanks, shock troops who are fiercely loyal to their masters, the Scryve. The Drenkend are not necessarily dumb, just extremely easy to lead astray. Obviously the result of genetic engineering, it seems likely they have also been implanted with a need, even a compulsion, to unfailingly obey orders, no matter how ill advised they are.


Drenkend are large and imposing, they posses a mammalian appearance with two muscular arms. They posses tank treads instead of legs and perhaps other cybernetic modifications to make them better fighters. They also only possess two ears (depsite their best effots).

They no longer reproduce naturally, but are instead cloned by Scryve created machines.

They are classified by The Measured as a level A2 sentient species. However, prior to genetic modifications they were classified as level A8.


Society and Culture

Thanks to the Scryve interfering, virtually all traces of the Drenkend's original culture are gone and they only exit to serve as living weapons. But this doesn't mean they don't have any culture, they engage in fist fights, dangerous sports and even dating. One at the bar in the Kapteyn's Star system even attempts karaoke.

Drenkend Carrier

Drenkend Carrier

The Drenkend Carrier exemplifies everything that makes the Drenkend such terrifying opponents: their ability to throw lots and lots of bodies at a problem. Absolutely crammed with Drenkend just itching to fight, the Drenkend Carrier is capable of launching an almost infinite number of boarding craft to ruin an enemy's day. To support their day-ruining efforts, the Carrier also can fire a De-Energizing Bolt, capable of slowing an enemy vessel down long enough for the boarding parties to do their worst.
