Sathoy are considered very rough and unrefined by conventional standards. They are a very primitive, simple people, seeking survival in a technological universe that they often have a hard time understanding. Primal, basic needs drive most Sathoy. They have a hard time adjusting in ‘civilized’ society. Young Sathoy are more primal than even their parents. The young hunt raptor-like in packs until they are about a century in age. Untamed young Sathoy even cannibalize the older Sathoy when they can. (It's no wonder that the adults prefer climbing the trees!) Sathoy are in tune with nature around them.
For seven hundred years, the Sathoy have been slaves to the Hytroch. Aeron is home to the Hytroch, and is also the moon of Planet KaghNoor, which is home to the Sathoy. When the Hytroch first landed on KaghNoor in 1899 AD, the Sathoy regarded the Hytroch as deities. The Hytroch capitalized on the situation, forcing the Sathoy into slavery. Hytroch utilized the powerful Sathoy as laborers and miners to further develop Aeron. KaghNoor itself has been extensively mined by Sathoy slave labor. More influential Hytroch even employ Sathoy bodyguards. In the early 1900’s, thousands of ‘The Old Ones’ (Sathoy over 400 years in age) rallied the younger Sathoy in an uprising up against their Hytroch masters. It was a short, blood-spattered conflict, ending with hundreds of dead Hytroch, and thousands of dead Sathoy. The Hytroch put to death every one of ‘The Old Ones’ they could find. To this day, Hytroch kill any Sathoy showing signs of higher thought. Over the centuries, most Sathoy have come to understand the truth about the Hytroch, but still, many consider the Hytroch as deities.
