The Vaaliin was one of the three sentient species that evolved on the planet Telios Prime , in the Shiss Sector. A sentient aquatic species, the Vaaliin created wonderful art works and architecture using a targeted growth method to allow inverterbrate lifeforms to deposit subsequent layers of a material that hardens to a consistency that resembles modern Cerocrete . Following the Cataclysm , which led to widespread destruction on the planet, the Vaaliin culture and people were completely wiped out. The Vaaliin (a Telian approximation of the original name) are considered an extinct species.
Today, only a handful of artifacts and materials have been recovered by Telian archeologists, although several submarine structures have remained remarkably intact.
