Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
The Balosar have a well-deserved reputation for crime and skullduggery. They come from the planet Balosar, a polluted and inhospitable Core World that has suffered mightily at the hands of intergalactic corporate exploitation. Balosar that remain on their species’ homeworld either end up in one of a thousand menial, degrading, and low-paying jobs, or they resort to lives of crime, eking out a shady criminal existence. Occasionally, Balosars find their way off-world. Instead of bettering themselves, they typically revert to petty crime to make a living. Balosar appear to be baseline Human while their antennapalps are retracted.
Personality: Balosars are often weak-willed and self-absorbed. Many suffer from severe depression and feel like they’re trapped; others grudgingly accept their lot in life with a sarcastic grin. A Balosar’s moral and ethical outlook is often skewed by hard life experiences, and many have trouble distinguishing between right and wrong.
Physical Description: A Balosar has coarse hair, a frail-looking frame, and retractable antennapalps atop their head. The average Balosar stands about 1.6 meters tall, and most have sickly complexions from a lack of sunlight and clean air.
Homeworld: Balosar is an inhospitable Core World that has seen better days. The planet’s high crime rate and corrupt government discourages tourists, and the air is barely breathable because of industrial pollution.
