Earah (ear rha): Pledged male, or prince. The proper name given to the male ruler of the orhatea. He is the primary caretaker of the colony, responsible for its day-to-day functions, protection and expansion. He is the final arbiter in all disputes, and with the exception of Amah, his word is law.
The Earah is a powerful being. He can grow to 217 cm (7’) in height. His enlarged body structure makes him incredibly strong. Male orhatea have limited telepathic abilities compared to the female, but unlike the females they are capable of manipulating computer systems with a thought. Male orhatea can create an energy charge over their shells, and the Earah can extend that into a blade of plasma capable of slicing through concrete and steel.
