"Brood-voice" Gotye is one of the many leaders of the Toari, an uplifted species which willingly joined the empire that saved them from extinction. The Toari homeworld "Cor" was forced onto a degrading orbit by another more advanced species that decided that getting the planet's natural resources wasn't worth the hassle brought by the natives who were currently in their medieval technological era. This species had a custom of pushing depleted planets into it's star and attempted such on Cor, however the planet was much more massive than the usual worlds they had destroyed and was only put in a slowly degrading orbit. 400+ years later the planet had lost 87% of its life due to the exponentially increased intensity of its star's light. The Dyna discovered Cor and after a few months in council went to rescue the Toari that remained. Of course, being a medieval species, they had to be carefully trained and taught everything trans-newtonian but since they mature faster after birth the newer generations of Toari took to the lessons rather easily. Today (257 years later) the planet is being fully evacuated of all denizens and livestock as well as harvested of as much crop that can be retrieved before the gravitational force of its star begins causing widespread volcanic activity. The Toari's litter style birth cycle has allowed their numbers to swell unprecedentedly and now make up almost the entirety of the heavy backbone of the Dyna.
The drawing is rough as I haven't drawn anything organic in at least 2 years and just had to get back into it.
