Eltus(エルタス Erutasu) is an Earth-like planet under the fixed star Vilous where the New Age canon takes place. It is also a common name for creatures and its ecosystem who originated from this planet.
Sergals, Agudners, and Nevreans are the main sentient species and representative races of the Eltus group, and each of them are commonly referred to as the "Eltus race" or "Eltus people". Also they are treated as "human existence on the Tal. Unlike Tal's native creatures, all creatures that belong to the Eltus group have many biologic features that are common to creatures of Earth. The most noticeable feature is that Eltus races have red blood.
Important note: This article is completed but is still in need of revisions, mainly proof-reading.
Planet Eltus might have an environment completely identical to Earth. The relations of Eltus and Tal are very similar to Earth and Mars. Currently, Eltus is a planet that is destined to disappear from the Vilous system soon.
Eltus race(エルタス人, also called just "Eltus" or "Eltus people" often) is race group that were native to planet Eltus. There are three well known humanoid race that have many features reminiscent of Earth's animals, Sergals, Nevreans, and Agudners. Also they are called "the red-blood people". They are treated as same group of species, but they can't reproduce between different races. (i.e.: sergals and nevreans can't bear their children between them.)
In canon story, all Eltus races consider themselves as "human". Because of this, they call each others "human" as conceptual recognition, also their civil rights are treated as "human rights".
Originally, they were completely humanoid race identical to humans of Earth. But their bodies were shifted to humanoid animal bodies that are well known as anthropomorphic race, and all of them are living on Planet Tal for now. Thus they are keeping a sense that recognize themselves as human beings although all of them aren't knowing their original form.
When it is written as only "Eltus race" simply, it usually shows modern Eltus race as race that have anthropomorphic appearances.
Common features of all Eltus race
They have red blood and four fingers, and their organization as the creature is same as creatures of the earth to some extent basically. But their digestive organs and the sense of taste are completely different from humans.
The common appearance of all newborn offspring of any of the Eltus races is that they have gray and fluffy body and that. When they are around 2 years old in the Earth's time, all their fur is completely regrown in their respective natural color.
For comparatively common feature of Eltus race, they generally don't have antipathy or aversion to homosexuals. Also peculiarly as for sergals and nevreans, they don't stick to one partner, unlike humans.
As for people who are living in plural families, their family values is different from a human's family values. For them, a partner for conceiving a child is different from a partner as the prospective suitor. Because they take care of the child by Great Society and group, even if the couples between the different species who cannot conceive a child increase, they don't worry about decrease in population.
However, only the agudners have sense of their own for their biological children, stick to one partner, due to their biology and behavior that are similar to humans most, among Eltus races. Specifically; "strong emotion", "emotional attachment", and "caring quality of one's child". Because of this, some agudners may have some problem (for example: some of them may not like sexual intercourse with person who is not one's partner). But they usually live together in peace almost.
And there are also many that see "sexual intercourse and romance of heterosexuals within one race" and "sexual intercourse and romance of heterosexuals between other race" as something different.
Origin of Eltus race
Their prototype, it is the primal humanoid race who had lived on planet Eltus. There were not much differences between them and a humans of Earth.
Due to unknown event, their bodies were changed into another bodies that mixed human and various animals, and were divided to respective races as sergals, nevreans, and agudners. And all of them emigrated to the planet Tal according to this complete transfiguration.
Plants that came from planet Eltus are green plants with chlorophyl similar to the ones from Earth, those are not Tal's original flora. And they are fairly rare sight, making them a desirable and fairly valuable item on Tal.
