It was through this investigation that the Shavital found the Concilium – a huge space station that was built by some long forgotten space-faring species. Being an industrious people, they quickly colonized it and reverse-engineered the technology. It was here that they based their space-faring expeditions and pushed it even further, discovering the Bareshi’mah and the Ikedi.
The Shavital are a cautious species, avoiding conflict whenever possible. Though there is a criminal element within the Shavital people, they are largely earnest in their dealings, which primarily involves research and integrating new species into the Intergalactic Council. The most common way of doing this is finding out whatever they can about the species they are encountering, meeting them on their own terms and offering to build a Gate for them, and show them how to use it. It is during this time that the Shavital governing body assesses the species and decides whether or not to extend an invitation to join the IGC. If they are found worthy, the Gate works, and the first location it will take them is to the Concilium where they can be evaluated by the other members. After a vote, it is determined if they can join the Council and gain a seat within it. If they are too dangerous, too unpredictable, or have unscrupulous practices, they sabotage the Gate so it doesn’t work and mysteriously disappear as they appeared in the first place, leaving the species to their own devices.

Mind over Matter – The Shavital are masters of their bodies and minds. Their will is insurmountable, and their abilities of perception are vastly alien compared to those of other species in the galaxy. Shavital can spend 1 Action Point (AP) to use their Willpower (WP) Attribute instead of any other attribute. This can be used during a player’s active turn, or as a reaction to an action. This effect ends after the attribute is next used.
