Star Call: Chronicles of the Hawk
Little is Known of the civilization that built the portals that are so vital to Mankind’s existence in space. We know they were a space capable civilization that could build giant stone gates with high technology since at least 10,000 b.C. Their portals are made of stone with conductive metal forming circuits and decorative patterns in a way that is hard to tell what is form and what is functions. The architecture is extremely organic and it’s believed now they had some stone shaping tools to help them give form to their achievements. So far, humanity is yet to have found a planet settled by the Precursors, as the only two other intelligent races found in the galaxy so far were not past Iron Age levels of technology and showed none of what is believed to be Precursors material culture. The flesh and bone like shape of their stone portals and the carvings showing slender humanoid figures holding staves or spears with globes floating in their hands remain unmatched by any findings on living planets. We aren’t even sure yet they are originally from the Milk Way, and their races might have come from a distant galaxy and move on. We do believe they are either gone or extinct due to the lack of any activity near all the known portals.
