Another fantastic voyage with Savage Worlding the awesomeness of Strange Stars.
Resembling beings out of the paleo-spiritual memes of Earth, the winged deva are the most mysterious of the Alliance’s members. The deva are supportive of the Alliance and promote peace but are largely aloof from the affairs of other cultures. They are primarily concerned with their Great Work: the repair of 10 moon-sized artificial worlds in their home system. These are said to be huge brains and possibly components of an even greater mind (SS, pg 11). Here is Trey’s post on the deva.
Angelic Wings: Deva have wings that utilize energy harmonics that allow them to fly in atmosphere or even in the vacuum of space. A deva flies at a pace of 8 and a d8 if they fly fast. A deva can only fly short distances in space (roughly 1000 miles) before they become exhausted and unable to carry on.
Diplomat: Even though deva are aloof and secretive, they are logical and good diplomats. A deva begins with a d6 in Persuasion (Spirit).
Vacuum Resistant: Deva are able to survive in the vacuum of space without any protective suit and do not take damage from decompression for 6 hours before having to make Vigor check to avoid wounds. When they make the Vigor check they receive +2 to the roll.
Secretive: Deva are extremely secretive about the Great Work. All deva know that this work is of the utmost importance and imperative to the deva race. A deva has the Vow (Major) hindrance (SWDX, pg 31). A deva will do whatever it take to further the work on restoring the 10 moon-sized artificial worlds. They will abandon their compatriots, steal, kill, cheat, etc. should it be necessary in the service of the Great Work.
