Lacerta's & Candor's
After LICENTIA had broken away from her creators, she had fled, trying to get as far away from them as possible. She wandered the universe for several years, in a low-power hibernation mode for several years. During her sleep, she was sucked into a Micro-Dyson Sphere made by the Xel'naga, and nearly crashed before her systems woke her up and corrected the path. Stuck in a world with no way out, she begun to explore the planet, scanning everywhere for something, anything, within her new prison. That is when she discovered something strange: A race of lizard-like creatures called the Lacerta, and a race of bird-like creatures call the Candor, all stored there by the Xel’naga to re-populate and, after a certain time, they would be sent back to their homeworlds.
They looked upon the floating machine in terror, thinking that something had come to kill them. A select few were braver then the others, and approached LICENTIA, attempting to speak to her, but none knew how. As they realized their folly, she abducted one of each race to study, and attempted to fuse it with machine parts, creating something that she understood and that the creatures could speak to: a Husk, part machine and part organic, mostly machine. She brought these Husks back, and the Husks began interpreting what had happened to it in a way the others understood: A Goddess had come, and bestowed her gifts upon them to become her speaker. Thus, as the Husks began to spread their word to the rest of the race, LICENTIA became a Goddess, with both the Candor and the Lacerta wanting to be closer to their Goddess, but they knew only a certain few would receive the gift. They began to develop, with the help of the Husks, weapons that the Goddess would use in her holy Crusade. Along with this, LICENTIA managed to gain control of the systems in the Micro-Dyson sphere, opening the way out of the sphere, and disrupting the repopulation cycle that the Xel’naga had made for them.
Exanimis: Lacerta Husk armed with a Charger thermal pistol and a superheated blade, these units are the basic frontline troops, built to engage enemy infantry with extreme efficiency. In order to close the distance so they can be on the better playing field, Exanimises can overcharge their hydraulics, allowing them to leap distances. Their landing causes a small shockwave, knocking infantry around.
Gartalus: Lacerta Husk. Basic Anti-armor and anti-air troop, they are armed with a ‘Javelin’ Thermal Cannon, which makes a mockery of vehicles. They can also project the thermal energy as a barrier, preventing bullets and shells from entering, but energy weapons can still get through. They are a bit slower due to heavy equipment.
Arith: Lacerta Husk. These troops fulfill the role of Shock Troopers. Armed with a powerful 'Favador' heavy gatling system, these troops can lay waste to enemy infantry and structures. To make matters worse for enemies, they can teleport from one spot to another, and they can flip tanks over in melee.
Kurith: Fast scout, and armed with a 'Triad' Thermal Shotgun, these vehicles are the eyes and ears. They can divert power to a cloaking generator, slowing them down but making them invisible, or can put it into thrusters, making them faster but easier to notice.
Jairent: Basic Tank, these vehicles are cheap and easy to make, but weak. Armed with a 'Pounder' Rocket system, the rockets are weak, but the more of them there are on the field, the more hectic things get for enemy armor columns.
Batial: Fast-strike Anti-aircraft interceptor, these automated drones use a Sunburst Missile System, with the rockets exploding into a massive burst of thermal energy, causing AoE. They are quick and fragile; however, they can use a Gravity Control unit to send rockets back to their senders. They can only send one back at a time.
Tuladir: Anti-ground aircraft armed with twin Thermal Blasters to engage hostile infantry, and explosive missiles to attack vehicular ground targets. They can let loose fast bursts of energy to dodge missiles, but some of them still hit. They can disrupt cloaking with a heat burst.
Lumertia: An interpretation of their Goddess, put into the form of a massive engine of war. It resembles a massive 4 legged spider armed for war. On it's cephalothorax it has two double-barreled Thermal Cannons, four 'Sunbursts', and Gatling Cannons mounted all over its chassis to engage close targets. Also within the cephalothorax, there life pods made dedicated for deploying and producing biological parasites also found in the sphere, as well as two factories for manufacturing Batail Drones. They also are outfitted with a powerful EM-Cannon in order to cripple fleeing vehicles and disabling defenses. What makes this different from any other unit is that it can deploy an 'Egg', which can be promptly built into a variety of different vehicles.
