The Endless Blue
The last great failure of The Fey. An attempt to “perfect” their own race went horribly wrong, reducing them to almost bestial intelligence – creatures of instinct – but giving them monstrous forms and the ability to inflict such mutations on other life forms. Unfortunately they’re still smart enough to run a vessel in etherspace, though such ships are either stolen or crude and primitive. The Fey swore never to meddle with sentient organisms again, but one faction saw the Scourge as a different kind of success and split off from the rest, called the Dark Fey by their brethren.
