Highly advanced technologically,
the Vectides are an enigma to all who come into contact with them. Like the Intari,
the Vectides have joined in the war for etherium but only recently, and the one encounter with the Vectides ended in a bloodbath. Subsequent analysis of their “soldiers” killed in combat shed no light whatsoever on their nature: their armor contained neither a living organism nor an onboard computer… just etherium; as if the prized resource itself was animating these warlike machines.
Vectide technology far surpasses that of Earth or even the Intari, a more ancient race. Their vehicles, and even their infantry, operate without “pilots”; a true demonstration of their advanced culture, because the Vectides can use etherium to transfer their consciousness into combat-ready units, making every Vectide a potential soldier.
This means they can assemble a much larger army than the other factions.
