The Urnar are a hardy race from the planet Loros, identified by their wide-crested craniums and tall stature. Loros is one of the Council members of the Union of Garden Worlds, having joined the Union twelve years after it's creation. As such, Urnar have spread throughout the Union worlds, and emigrated to many other planets within the Union. Urnar culture is steeped in ritual, but not of a spiritual sort. Urnar are methodical, almost to a fault, and place great value on tradition. They eat at specific times during the day, sleep during set times, celebrate holidays and anniversaries with near-fanatical pomp and circumstance. This does not mean that Urnar are simple folks, who act merely as cogs in some social machine. They are a space-faring species, having developed and perfected a wide variety of arts and sciences. This adherence to routine and ritual gives the Urnar a foundation in their lives, something to count on and believe in as they move through their lives.
