The Children of Lost Time

A Scattered Worlds race which flourished c. 550 million BCE on the planet Lamtek Tarluen. The Children of Lost Time were an offshoot of the Daamin race, descended from a Pylistroph-era exploration vessel that was marooned in the Scattered Worlds. The original Daamin had regressed to nonsapience, then evolved back up to a high cultural level, although they never developed star-travel. They excelled at the construction of intricate artificial intelligences.

After a long history of nearly a million years, the Children of Lost Time passed into a still, contemplative silence and over the next centuries their bodies withered and became one with their world.

The only survivor was Hes-Namu, a sapient computer constructed by the Children shortly before their ultimate demise. In time, Hes-Namu picked up and deciphered ultrawave transmissions from the Scattered Worlds. After a period of communication that lasted several centuries, Hes-Namu came to Nephestal to serve the Council of the Free Peoples.
