The half lives are a cross breed between humans from Earth and non-human races from the other planets.
The name comes from the term Half-life, abbreviated t½, which is the scientific term used to denote the period of time it takes for the amount of a substance undergoing decay to decrease by half. The name was originally used to describe a characteristic of unstable atoms (radioactive decay.) it may apply to any quantity which follows a set-rate decay. One of the key characteristics of half lives is that they age at a rate which is 50% faster than humans. In 3017 most half lives have a life expectancy of fifty years, while their human counterparts could easily live to be a hundred.
The first recorded half lives were born in 2100, by which time the distances between planets could be covered in weeks instead of years Earth time. Technological advancement and the discovery of wormholes between planets further shortened travel times so that by 2900, such space could be covered in days.

In this Reader Avatar series, I ask you the same, so I can get to know you better 🙂 If you my reader, would like to featured here please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ania Ostrowska, was one of the very first to read and comment on The Destiny of Shaitan. So it was only fitting that she is one of the first to feature in my Reader Avatars series. Read more about Ania here:

1. It takes one full day (Earth time) to travel from one planet to another using the normal interplanetary trade routes.-However using wormholes (these are shortcuts similar to toll highways. Using these the travel time between planets can be significantly shortened)

The most powerful being in the universe was created in lust and disowned at birth. Shaitan was a love child. His mother, Ira, seduced the supreme god Shiva, conceiving Shaitan in the divine equivalent of a one-night stand. When the moment of madness was over, Shiva regretted his lapse. When most needed, Shaitan’s powers would fail him, so Shiva fumed at his yet unborn child.
