Planet of Origin: Tarn-Vedra, in the Andromeda Galaxy
The Vedrans are an advanced species that developed an advanced FTL space-faring expansive civilisation.
They are responsible for founding the Vedran Empire and later the Systems Commonwealth. which span the Andromeda galaxy, the Milky Way and the Triangulum Galaxy.
They resemble blue skinned centaurs, with four powerful legs and a humanoid upper body. Their blood is blue. They have no hair on their boy but males have long, brightly colored crests of feathers which cover their heads and spines. They are a matriarchal society, where females act as the leaders of the family unit or herd. A male first owes loyalty to his mother's herd, then his mate's. Herds are organized into tribes and tribes into nations with all Vedran nations being ruled by an Empress, the spiritual and political head of the species. Males tend to be less intelligent and more aggressive than females. They outnumber females by approximately six to one and each female typically keeps several Vedran males in her family unit, with the Prime male having mating privileges, while the other males perform helper functions.
