Having been uplifted over 625 million years ago, the Luber enjoyed one of the longest legacies in Galactic society.

Luber have been inactive in the Galactic Affairs for longer than most racial clans can trace their lineage. They influenced the Hul to suppress the Data Revolt. Also, they were minor players helping the Tarseuh overthrow the "Lions".

They are officially no longer part of the Galactic civilization, having retreated to retirement worlds. But they are said to emerge from the gravity tides now and then.

Luber are bipedal, 2 metres tall with wide binocular vision on the end of muscular eyestalks. Adults mass between 600 to 700 kilos, resembling amphibious marsupials.

Patrons of the Puber.
