Species : Lioxae. Role : Savant.
Date of birth : unknown.

Lioxae are a highly advanced race of researchers. Individual Lioxae are melds of multiple minds. They don't have a body in any traditional sense, but are instead tethered to their spaceship.
Very little is known about the Lioxae home world, since all information about it gets purged from the memories of Lioxae the moment they undergo the 'ascension' process, which turns a number of original Lioxae into a single biomechanical being. From that point onwards, a Lioxae explores space with the aim to one day understand reality completely. All their knowledge is combined and stored in an archive they call the Overmind. Based on the amount of data an individual adds to the Overmind, Lioxae may rise in rank. The highest rank is the one of Prime.
As savant, Suhekazu is one step below the rank of Prime.
