The Fido are an uplifted domestic species, somewhat similar to a Terran dog, though much bigger and more lizard/parrot like. They are now an independent species in their own right, though they still have a strong undercurrent of loyalty and submission built into their nature. The Fido are fascinated with technology, earning them the nickname ‘Junkyard dogs’. They collect, dismantle and reconstruct alien and ancient technology without truly understanding it and all their worlds and colonies are massive interstellar junkyards. They have no standardised equipment, no standardised ships, they turn whatever is to hand to whatever they want.
