They come from a planet they name Svokk, in the star system: Beta Atria, a system of three planets, very hostile to life in general, They resemble humans but with particular facial features, Their race is in decline due to overly pushed genetic interbreeding with the wrong races, and as well the weakening environmental conditions of their habitat on Svokk. They have two genders, are oviparous, although not reptiloids. Smad are a pacifist people. The Smad have colonised about twenty worlds, never by force, and they discovered Terra 2500 years ago. Driven by curiosity, as they do not have any dogmatic structure of belief, they show deep interest for the evolution of Terran religious systems. They were recently welcomed as members of the GFW. Their ships are of conical shape and only six left.
