Star Trek 2261
Orion’s are known for their distinctive green or blue skin. Orion males are typically bald and, on average, taller and more muscular than an average Human male. Orion females are very animalistic in nature, known for their extreme carnal appetites and their innate skill of seduction. The Human male can rarely resist the alluring dance of the Orion slave girl.
In Orion society the males are slaves to the females. As a means of deception to other species, however, the Orion’s maintain the façade that the females are the slaves. This is commonly done by selling Orion females on the Orion slave market.
Once sold to a male, the Orion slave girls use their unique physiology to their advantage; their highly potent pheromones accelerate the metabolisms of males of many species, raising adrenaline production to dangerous levels which causes aggression and ultimately a form of delusion. Its most significant effect is to make them susceptible to suggestion. Not long after, the “owner” males begin taking orders from their “slave” females. The pheromones’ effects are cumulative; the longer exposed, the more pronounced are the results.
Human females react negatively to those same pheromones, experiencing headaches, and Vulcan’s are immune to effects of the pheromones.
It’s been theorized that the pheromone acts as a defense mechanism against competition.
Orion Species Traits
Males: +2 Strength, +2 Charisma, -2 Wisdom.
Females: +2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma, -2 to Strength
Medium-size: As Medium-size creatures Orions have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Orion’s base speed is 30 feet.
+2 species bonus to Will saves. The average Orion is a product of an unthinkably ancient, cosmopolitan civilization stretching across two quadrants and priding itself on its casual decadence. Nothing fazes him, and nothing is too strange to deal with.
+5 Energy resistance versus ultraviolet radiation. Orions evolved under a blue-white sun and the purple skies of Rigel VII. Their green skin keeps them relatively immune to ultraviolet radiation and somewhat resistant to radiation in general.
+2 species bonus on Appraise, Bluff, Diplomacy and Sense Motive skill checks.
Pheromones: Orion females exude a pheromone that makes males susceptible to suggestions. A male must roll a Willpower roll to resist this effect. The difficulty is equal to 10 + Orion Female’s level + her Charisma Modifier. This costs 2 Action Point to use. A Male who fails this roll is considered entranced and will do whatever the female commands for 1d4+1 turns. Vulcans and half-Vulcans are immune to this, as well as other females.
Bad Reputation: As Females are traditionally sold as slaves by their own people to infiltrate other cultures, any female will automatically receive a -2 to all Reputation Scores.
Automatic Language: Orion (also called Kolari)
