Stars in Shadow: Khagan Vander Gnott by AriochIV Stars in Shadow: Khagan Vander Gnott by AriochIV

This is the finished version of the leader of the Yoral. This is the actual formatting of the "vanity" mode of the diplomacy screen, in which you can view your own faction's leader before contacting foreign factions.

Arboreal creatures who turned to cave-dwelling to survive the environmental disaster that plunged their homeworld Verrold into a deep ice age, the Yoral are adept at using their survival skills to carve out self-sufficient colonies on worlds that most other races would dismiss as uninhabitable. The Yoral are organized into regional clans, answering to a central khagan.

Blunt and direct, equally slow to forgive a slight or forget a favor, the Yoral conduct their affairs with a confidence and ferocity that belies their small size. They prefer technologies that are simple and reliable -- kinetic weapons over exotic energy beams, for example. Their fleets are rugged and often consist of large numbers of smaller vessels that can be replaced quickly and cheaply when the need arises.

Stars in Shadow is a space 4X strategy game currently under development. 
Steam Early Access is planned for next month!

If the leader's title is "khagan", wouldn't the political system be properly called "khaganate" instead?

It is called the "Yoral Khaganate." It's misspelled in the image.

I like that their armor designs are basically old Scandinavian art. :)

"Uncommonly" cold, or is that suppose to represent a translation issue?

It's a rustic and slightly archaic English turn of phrase.

Basically after reading your description of the Yoral race, they're technically a "Mighty Glacier" race. Hard to defeat and brutally simple in design and construction.

Well done on the clothes design =3
