I talked to Myrrdhinn about it before posting, don't worry. I doubt this will be the case, I think they will be treated well. It's the other races throughout their "star spanning empire" that I'm worried about, considering the Dominion refer to them as "pathetic vermin"... These are the ones I think differently on. Luminai: From the Luminai page. Since Dominus is kind of a special case, he likely lived a bit longer than normal Luminai, I suspect average length is about 200. Draken: I don't think it would fit into their design very well if they died this quickly. THey need old and knowledgeable veterans and shamans, battle hardened, wise, all that good stuff. I think they will live a bit longer. Chua: I agree with the others here, almost definitely short lifespans imo. If we are incorporating any actual science in our Wildstar, then the Chua will have shorter lives. Such a small body means their hearts have to pump fast to circulate all of the blood that they need to survive. Human hearts pump slower because each pump is able to push out a lot of blood and we use the energy slower. A higher heart rate leads to a faster death, especially in something small enough to resemble a hamster or rat. This would also explain their increased intelligence as everything in their body works faster, even their brain. I really hope not, since it is speculated they will be our intelligence network like the Mechari.
