Siqul were uplifted 1,2 billion years ago and most records about them are little better than notes and legends. They are bipedal and gangly, at almost 3 metres tall, with large optical sensors that are tecnically not eyes. They "see" a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum, from the lower gamma radiation into the area of radio waves. Their five-fingered hands have radial symmetry.

Having long delayed their entry into the Retired Order, the Siqul seem in no hurry to leave Galactic sociaety, preferring a slow-paced existence as casual hobbyists. A specially favoured hobyy is archeology. Uplifted the Linten.
