The Great Sight[]

The Great Sight is a phenomenon that occurs when a Protux has achieved all the knowledge possible for a certain skill. When a Protux attains The Great Sight, their body dissipates and turns into soul veins. They become the teachers of the next generation of Protux and are protected by the Circle of Agnitio.

The True Great Sight[]

The True Great sight is a phenomenon even rarer than The Great Sight. It occurs when a member of the Circle of Agnitio achieves all the knowledge in existence. They turn into an energy resembling electricity, with a silver tinge.

The Alieno[]

The Alieno is the greatest fear of the Protux. It is the Forgetting. It had happened once a long time ago and has been feared ever since. It is when a life form is exposed to a force that wipes out all knowledge they possess and prohibits them from gaining it again. The Caecus Mens are a special ops rank of the Protux military that had experienced the Alieno, making them very old, but they had somehow survived the ordeal and had gained irregular powers, such as converting speech to thought and sending it a great distance.

Language[]

The Protux being extremely interested in ancient history of other planets, have adopted the Earth languages of Latin and French. These two languages have highly interested the Protux over the years. Only Priests, Scholars and Scroll-Bearers are allowed to learn Latin.

Voyageur: The Scholar. They devote their lives to learning about history and reading ancient texts. In their homes they often have entire wings that are just libraries, filled with their own personal collection of tomes and texts. Most Scholars have a Scroll-Bearer as an assistant to their studies.
