Saberians were a group of Human Force-sensitives native to the planet Saber, in the Faberian sector. Saberian females were often used as slaves or dancers because of their beauty. They were tall and slender, and possessed exceptional flexibility.
Saberians are all Force-sensitive. All Saberians have very good night vision; their nights are extremely dark because of the dense forests that cover Faber. They were also gifted with impressive physical abilities that made them natural athletes, included being capable of running great distances at great speeds for long periods of time, and being able to jump vast distances, comparable to the Force-enhanced jumps employed by members of the Jedi Order. Saberians have keen hearing and excellent sense of smell. They, like the Faberians, are strong force-sensitivity due to the Dark Planet, and are able to mask their presence to hide from other force-sensitive beings or creatures on or off their planet. The Saberians are quiet as they move; they are an uncanny ability to walk silently across rocks and pebbles.
Biology and appearanceEditThe Saberians have pure-white hair that is thick and long, their hair is styled in a half-bun with four thick braids, hanging to their hip; the braid over their shoulder is held together by a black leather band with gold clasps on the both ends of the band and the three braids that hangs behind their back is held together by a gold, thin, long clasp. They have thin braids on either side of their heads that does into the bun, and their bangs goes to their breasts.
The Saberians have pure-white skin, due to the lack of sunlight on Saber, and gold eyes, which is sensitive to light and purple lips. Their faces are marked with the Saberians' markings of Womanhood, which is small four black dots that starts from their forehead and goes down the bridge of their nose, and two black stripes going diagonally down their cheeks, on both sides and a faded purple stripe that covers their eyes and brows.
Saberians' bodies are slender yet muscular, slim yet curvy, a testament of them living on a harsh planet that never seems to ease up on them. Because of the rocks and dangerous weather on Saber, Saberians' skin is very tough, so they never are seen wearing shoes of any kind.
Saberians are all 5', expect for Kateri who is 5’1” and is considered to be tall for her race.
Saberians got into many wars over the centuries, but they were almost wiped out completely when the Sith invaded Faberian Sector during the Great Sith War and that took many years of fighting and in the end, both races won but the damage had been already done to their planets.
Society and politicsEdit
Saberians have a soft, lilting accent. Their language is hard to speak and because of their Force-sensitivity, they can understand other languages.
Saberians have a Matriarchy Hereditary government, they are a tribal race.
They don’t have a military like the Faberians but the Saberians do have Handmaidens that are their elite warriors, these women are unnatural strong because they have to protect the Royal Family.
Culture and SocietyEdit
The Saberians are a race of beautiful, seductive and dangerous human women who have shun males because of their belief that all men lie and are violent, whether this is true or not.
The Saberians all live in tribes that only consists of their direct family (such mothers, aunts, grandmothers, daughters and sisters), the great-great grandmother is the chieftain of their tribe and they all obey the Queen Mother, the true ruler of all Saberian tribes. The Saberian is an all women society, ruled by a female ruler.
The Saberians evolved in order to survive on a forever nocturnal planet, they have night-vision, keen hearing and excellent sense of smell. They, like the Faberians, are strong force-sensitivity due to the Dark Planet, and are able to mask their presence to hide from other force-sensitive beings or creatures on or off their planet. The Saberians are quiet as they move; they are an uncanny ability to walk silently across rocks and pebbles.
Saberians are natural and nurture Farmers, Huntresses, Warriors and Trackers, born and bred to hunt and kill their enemies and prey. All Saberians are raised with a motto 'Only the strong and cunning survive and the weak and foolish die.'
Saberians are fast, strong and agile; their only means of transport is their entire bodies. The rocky surface is like a exercise gym for the Saberians, they show such acrobatic skill when they move across the rocky surface of the planet and the maze-and-cliff-like structure of the caves and caverns in which they live.
When Saberian girls reach the age of sexual maturity, which is sixteen years of age, she is allowed to travel off-world with a Faberian woman in order to mate and conceive a baby with a male, of any race. The gene of the Saberian is stronger and dominant, so the baby will be born a female and would look like their mother.
Saberian girls are actually considered adults when they reach thirteen but sexual maturity doesn't come in until later in life; so when they turn thirteen, they are accepted to help out in hunting and protecting the tribe, but in order to prove themselves, the Saberian girls are casted out into the wild, alone and armed only with her speed and intelligence. They are only considered women if they survive the two months out in the wild and when they return the Great-Great Grandmother would hand them a mask that has the Clan's symbol on its forehead and they would reserve the tattoos of womanhood, the four black dots and black four black strips on their nose and cheeks.
When Saberians babies are born, they are actually transparent and are birthed in the darkest and deepest section of the underground caverns. The babies and mothers stay here until the baby is strong enough and non-transparent. During the transparent months of their life, Saberians infant are extremely valuable and weak at this point so mothers are very protective of them to the point of being feral-like in their protecting nature.
The Oracles, Saberians women who are unable to birth due to freakish strong force-powers, stay within these parts and act as midwives to the would-be mothers; but the Oracles even act as Teachers, Trainers and Priestess to the Saberians. They are what the Jedi are to the people.
While they do not trust the outsiders, the Saberian Queen Mother knows that she must have an Ambassador to the outside and always has a tournament, which is part of their culture, in order to choice their Ambassador to the outside. The Tournament is a way for a Saberian warrior to show that she is agile, fast, quiet, and intelligent in order to mingle among men and women of other worlds and galaxies. The Queen Mother's daughters are forbidden to enter the tournament but during the Old Republic, The Queen Daughter (their word for Princess), Desideria, entered the tournament and won the entire test that her mother had set out for them to pass and won the title of Ambassador of Saber. Her name would later be given to three other Queen Daughters who dared to change the strict traditions of the Saberian Culture, her direct descendants.
The Saberian religion was very important to the Saberians. They were devout and had only one goddess which the call the Dark One. The Dark One wears a black full length cloak that covers her entire body and part of her head; the part that her cloak's hood doesn't cover is her lower face which reveals a very beautiful. All Saberians carry a small statue in her likeness and worship her before going on any journey since she is believed to protect all her children, the Saberians including the ones that have been exiled which are called the Fallen Ones.
Saberians have very low-tech technology; they only use swords, spears and bows. The Saberian longsword is a curved blade with spiked protrusions and handholds along the middle of the blade's back. The Saberian knife has three blades: a main blade with a cutout in the center, and two smaller blades on either side. In some models, these side blades are spring-loaded and can pop out into position and close up for storage. In other models, the blades are fixed. It also features a pommel studded with blunt spikes. The Saberian short sword consists of a short, thick, curved blade with a metal guard extending back parallel with the grip to protect the hand. They have curved single-edged knives with serrated edges typically used in tandem which she keeps strapped to her lower back. These "swingblades" are capable of slicing and stabbing positions, and are designed to complement the natural motions of a person's arms and hands in close combat.Du
During the Clone Wars though, Saberian technology began to develop they start to build ships and blasters and by the time of the Sith-Imperial War, Saber were fighting along side the other planets in space to fight back Darth Krayt's Empire.
