The Sheriff of Pictoris
An old and technologically advanced species the Veld were traversing the stars when humans were working with bronze. Now most Veld live in space on massive city ships moving from one system to another. The Velds technology is generations ahead of the other species making some of what they can do seem more like magic then technology.
The Veld themselves are a very spiritual and peaceful people. They are typically helpful and kind to all they encounter and more then willing to help when they can. However there is much more to the Veld. All Veld clearly have a dark side that can rear its head from time to time.
