|Tarn Idoun Wizard/Mechanic||Ship’s Engineer/Zero-G Expert (Played by Chris Jarrett)|
Among the most ancient races within the Dragon Empire are the mysterious tarn idoun. These beings of living crystal are the first creators of the ioun stones. Most have dedicated themselves to the studies of magic and technology and pursue knowledge in all its forms.
The exact origins of the tarn idoun appear to be lost to history. The first recorded contact with the race tells of a dwarven mining expedition that found rows of strange crystal shapes within an asteroid they had sought to mine. Floating around these crystalline forms were smaller crystals of various colors. When the dwarves touched them, the crystalline forms sprang to life and identified themselves as the tarn idoun. Other races encountered similar communities throughout the galaxy, sometimes on a moon and other times buried deep within a planet. The tarn idoun seemed to have no memory of life before being awakened and had no knowledge of how they had come to be found dormant in the caverns.
The tarn idoun adapted quickly to life among the sentient races. They employed their innate magical energies
to allow their crystalline forms to interact with the technology and devices of the sentient races. The presence
of the tarn idoun’s arcane essence leads many to believe that the tarn idoun or their precursors are extraplanar in origin.
Within a few hundred years, the tarn idoun were an integral part of the galactic community. Their ability to make ioun stones led many tarn idoun to engage in trade and commerce with other races. Tarn idoun made welcome additions to survey and exploration teams where their attention to detail resulted in comprehensive starcharts and voluminous data on various planetary and stellar phenomena. Many tarn idoun turned their attention towards magic, creating new forms of magical protections and propulsion. The tarn idoun’s natural talents for magic and the vast array of technology they encountered made the practice of technomancy a natural choice for many. To this day, the tarn idoun remain a prominent part of the interstellar community and several of the galaxy’s greatest technomancers are drawn from this race.
Sedion is the ship’s engineer and is a wizard at it.
Someone is killing Sedion’s people off, one colony at a time. Throughout the adventure, he encountered multiple Tarn Idoun colonies completely depopulated.
Slowly I was developing a plot to connect his people to the gem dragons.
