Kafori (kah FOHR ee) are renowned healers, scientists & psionists. Peaceful & balanced, the Kafori are known as one of the most serene of peoples. Being a rather ordered race, the Kafori society is typically very lawful, even considered conservative by other conservative cultures. Despite this reputation, the people are also highly sensual, conducting, long, sense pleasing ceremonies and rituals, involving incense, teas, & aromatic oils. A classic Kafori marriage ceremony can last two full hiseen (55 hour Kafori day), and culminates with the newly wed couple bathing each other to ritually cleanse away the old life for a fresh beginning together. The highest principle of the Kafori is the respect and reverence of the sanctity of all life. The religious order of Kerryn originated from the Kafori people. Kerryn (b 1199AD) was a Kafori noblewoman who wrote the ┘athes lu Ăjaun Kerryn, a guide for moral and ethical behavior as well as a detailed manual for all the hundreds of ceremonies the Kafori still use every day. When the Ovm÷rtacian Surge came, Kerryn vanished without explanation, and is now revered in an almost deific manner by the Kafori.

The Kafori government is headed by an equitable senate of representatives from the various countries and provinces. The Kafori punish those who would upset the serenity and order of the Kafori homeworld, B'Loett, or other Kafori governed worlds. Since killing and harming a living thing is abhorrent to a typical Kafori, this punishment usually takes the form of stripping the offender of their property and freedom, and assigning them to a Kafori run center for intensive psychological correction, where their obviously ailing mind can be coaxed towards more lawful and properly civilized behavior. The offending individual is only released when a deep and extensive telepathic scan of his or her mind shows no sign of the bedlam that ruled them.

In 125BE, the Kafori traveled to Earth & confirmed to Humans that extraterrestrial intelligences actually existed. The Kafori scout ship was destroyed by a secret society that then gathered the wreckage and reverse engineered weapons of war, and a supercomputer that would eventually become the Aquillan robotic despot, Ozzero. In 355AE, the Kafori became one of the founding members of the Universal Alliance. (Initially, the name was Universal Federated Alliance) Soon afterwards, a rivalry began between the Kafori and the Artek. The Artek saw the Kafori as a highly evolved species, and could not understand why they would ally with lesser developed civilizations. A brief war between the two races from 549-550AE ended with the Artek officially allying themselves to the Aquillan Imperium. Kafori feel responsibility and shame over both the creation of Ozzero, and in the Artek allying themselves to him.
