Metanels are very strange machines of all shapes and use. Endowed with artificial intelligence, they appear to have originated from some intergalactic dump site. True origin of Metanels is still a mystery. The first contact with the robots took place on the edge of the Terron Federation on the border of the First Worlds – a group of exploited systems abandoned hundreds of years ago even before the invention of the hyper drive. Metanele themselves claim that they come from the Hunter’s House, but the maps of the known Galaxy do not show anything of a similar name. This peaceful, mechanical race wander through the space in search of the traces of mythical creators who have made them in their own image and then gone into the stars. The Metanels firmly believe that somewhere the Creators are still living and waiting to be found or maybe even need metanels help.So far, however they are traversing the cosmos to collect precious fuel and spare parts, to be used by the oldest of them – called Mechanics. This ancient robots conserve they brethren and bring life to new Metanels. Only they are capable of this, because as they say – the Creators left them the Code – ancient software that can be used to breathe the spirit into the machines. Being aware of the uniqueness of this gift, they value all life – both mechanical and organic. Metanels have special respect for the Terrons by naming them lost brothers or distant cousins. Unfortunately, they rarely meet with the understanding, which often leads to disagreements and conflicts. Rumors suggest that illegal research on the Metanel Code led to the creation of the Bioss, but so far there is no evidence to support this theory.
