For as long as written and oral records have been kept, Skrell society has had a score of outstanding individuals within it who made their mark on the species’ history. Many minor historical figures have been forgotten since the Tzqul Archive was sealed, while others were merely reduced to footnotes in history and forgotten as their historical relevance waned over the millennia. With this said, planets within the Jargon Federation are known to keep their own detailed records of notable figures that would otherwise be forgotten by Skrellian society at large, with most even receiving their own dedicated display or wing within local museums.
Birthdate : May 5th 1901
Joolro'Loveq is the oldest living Skrell in existence -- Born in 1901, they are the Head Teacher of the Aliose University of Medical Sciences. They are on a strict medicinal regimen to help prolong their life, along with several surgical treatments such as organ transplants. They are capable of standing for a few minutes, and has famously met the oldest Human in existence several times - and continues to meet the oldest human every time the current oldest dies.

Ju’qoli Yeeboq, or ‘Ju’qoli Qu’, literally meaning ‘Ju’qoli The Bright’, is the leader of a Federation Resistance cell known as Plurqh’Quq - Freedom Fighters. Their ultimate goal is to see a widespread rebellion against the Federation Government, and is known to read celestial events to guide their actions towards this goal. Ju’qoli is known to transmit speeches live through radio and Viv-ID, which are prone to censure by the Federation. Despite the Government’s attempts to prevent these pirate broadcasts from reaching their audience, many of them have been recorded and regularly circulate through the extranet. Most of these broadcasts speak of a coming age where Skrell who ‘cast off the domineering Federation’ will be rewarded with freedom, and the cosmos will ‘open up’ to them.
Birthdate : May 8th 2301
Ockq Oona is a revolutionary hacktivist known by most Skrell as the founder of the Raqa’Nuul, or ‘Cybers’. Born on the fringes of the Traverse, their upbringing and dour opinion of the Federation as a whole prompted them to create a group with the objective of changing Skrell society for the better. While Oona is a self-taught programmer, they have many accredited degrees in various computer science fields from Mars University which they are known to use as a means to project a more competent image for themselves and their resistance cell. With that said, the Federation regularly highlights the extensive body modification Oona has undergone as a way to discredit them; many Government broadcasts that mention Ockq Oona will describe them as more robot than Skrell, with subtle references to Glorsh-Omega to influence how Federation citizens perceive them.

Not much is known about The Latent, with only vague pieces of information disseminating across the sub-faction of the Resistance in which they lead. Rumours persist about their appearance; both tall and short, light-complexioned but also dark-complexioned. In reality, few ever get to meet The Latent, and those that do are considered the highest of the Oqolk-Kora order, who swear on their own lives to protect the identity of their leader. The Jargon Federation has openly stated that reporting any known information about the Oqolk-Kora Leader will result in an increased social credit score.

Similarly to 'The Latent', there's not much known about Psi other than their mononym and their leadership of the Subversives Resistance Cell. The Jargon Federation has put a bounty system in place allowing citizens of the Federation to report any information on Psi, incentivised by an increase in Social Credit Score if the information can be substantiated.
Birthdate : July 24th 2357
Weashbi Jrugl was born on the Skrell homeworld in 2357 CE to an archaeologist and an engineer in the ruins of a city between Heshy’Qlip and Xyla as their parents were working at a dig site. As they grew up, they gained a drive to learn as much as they could about the animals and people of their homeworld. In 2377 CE, they applied and were accepted to the Gliutip’lyaz University. They rose to the challenge of the rigorous schooling environment and social setting of Gliutip’lyaz University and left the school in 2400 CE as a much more skilled and well-connected individual.
Jrugl worked as a xenobiologist for thirteen years before Skrell made first contact with the Tajara. They were one of many xenobiologists who quickly gained a keen interest in the species, and it was not long before they had released their first research paper on the alien species. Jrugle made it their goal to produce and compile research into easily digestible papers so that every Skrell in the Federation could learn about the Tajara if they had an interest. This pattern of research and publication went on for many years regardless of the subject, making Jrugl a well-known and popular figure in their field as their work was something that most Skrell could find approachable.
Jrugl came to work alongside humans often, both as a means of comparing notes and interacting with their strange cultures. In early 2451 CE, Jrugl attended an event in which a Solarian Alliance ambassador bragged about the amazing capabilities of their AI; the ambassador claimed that an AI had found the highest prime number possible. Annoyed and proud as they were, Jrugl used their mathematical knowledge along with strategies they had learned during their decades of study to quickly prove the ambassador wrong. Weashbi Jrugl, in a fit of stubbornness, had discovered a new “highest known prime number” in only a few hours.
Jrugl was already a well-known xenobiologist, but this stunt involving prime numbers launched them into celebrity status. The Grand Councillor at the time commended their work, as did most Skrell across the galaxy. Politicians moved for the ruins Jrugl was born in to be renamed in honour of Weashbi Jrugl. Jrugl found the decision to be in poor taste, so the ruins were instead renamed in honour of Jrugl’s ancestors who perished there during the reign of Glorsh-Omega. The area is known today as the Jrugl’Qlip Ruins, and reclamation efforts have been planned to make the outskirts surrounding the ruins into a hub of scientific study.
When it came time for a new Grand Councillor to be chosen by popular vote, Weashbi Jrugl won by a landslide. Skrell across the galaxy knew them by reputation and their work, so they chose them to represent their interests in the Grand Council. Since then, Jrugl has pursued many ambitious goals. Most notable of these goals is their administration’s work to reintegrate systems that were not present for the Tresja Agreement back into the Jargon Federation.
Jrugl has remained as Grand Councillor of the Jargon Federation at the end of the 2463 Elections. During their campaign they expressed a desire to overhaul the inner workings of the Jargon Federation, beginning with a reformation of the legendary Tupkala. Jrugl has also begun deisolating the Federation from the greater Spur through actions such as the establishment of the Special Economic Zones and the Work Initiative Programme.

Jrolk was born on Aweiji during the Era of Synthetic Oppression and had survived beneath the tyrannical intelligence for almost a century before its disappearance within the Tri-Qyu Nebula. Despite their hardship, Jrolk went on to complete four degrees at the Grand University on Qerrbalak; Biochemistry, Physics, Genetics and Biotechnology. Their several degrees allowed their career to prosper, even under the ever-watching tyrannical eye of Glorsh-Omega.
Jrolk is one of the most influential Skrell across the Orion Spur and was merely a little over two hundred upon the discovery of humanity in 2332. They were one of the first "ambassadors" meant to close the divide between the two species, soon becoming Zeng-Hu’s Chief of Research and assisted in perfecting cloning technology for use both within the Jargon Federation and the greater Orion Spur. They are also considered the creator of the fertility treatments the Jargon Federation uses today, having worked alongside Nalo Gir'Roq. Many have said Jrolk is a wise individual, mostly due to his advanced age and status as an Elder among the Skrell. Even with their reputation however, Jrolk failed to be elected as the Grand Councillor of the Jargon Federation. Instead, they were appointed by Weashbi Jrugl to be Grand Advisor of Economic Development.

Hailing from the Traverse, Kalq’Qi Weibii announced their running for the Grand Councillor’s seat in the 2463 Elections alongside both Ormish Jrolk and Weishbi Jrugl. Weibii is renowned across the Jargon Federation for their involvement in reintroducing the various colonies left in isolation after the fall of Glorsh-Omega. They are considered a legend amongst other Representatives for their efforts in the Tresja Agreement signed in 2245 CE.
Weibii was born within the last years of the Era of Synthetic Oppression, and had just completed their final degree at the Paa’Kiim Institution of Learning located on the colony of Paa’Kiim when the intelligence was destroyed. With degrees revolving around Political Science, Law and Communication they found themselves spearheading the Collaborator Trials on Paa’Kiim. There are varying perspectives on their decisions, but most tend to agree with the severity of their sentences.
Weibii further went on to orchestrate a massive exodus of colonists from within the Traverse after her attempt at acquiring the title of Grand Councillor failed. This has lead to thousands of individuals seeking reprieve from the Jargon Federation’s iron first within the Republic of Biesel, prompting many more to wonder what more will come from such a decision rendered by these refugees. In the aftermath of the riots brought about by the conflict between the Trinary Perfection and the Starlight Zone on Biesel, Weibii has been elected Community Liaison for the Starlight Zone and is considered the official leader of the community by most Skrell.
Birthdate : November 10th 2389
Director Vraka Xora of Xomor, an institution established to provide security services for businesses and private individuals. Xora-Nel rose through the ranks of the Qukala, and has secured over sixty years of experience within the military, making them an ideal candidate to lead the enterprise. Xora-Nel is known to personally take part in the designing of Xomor’s training programmes, deliberating with representatives of the Nlomakala to ensure that Xomor contractors operate with the same standards as the Federation’s police force - although in recent years they have been described as reclusive. Since their appointment to Director of Xomor in 2438, Xora-Nel has made very few public appearances, with most pictures of the Director being taken as they enter or leave the Grand Council chamber. The lack of public appearance has resulted in rumours ranging from illness to conspiracies such as Xora-Nel and Jrugl secretly being part of a Qu’Poxii.
Xomor employees, despite never seeing the Director personally, describe them as a ‘remarkable individual’ and speak fondly of them when the topic is brought up.
Birthdate : April 3rd 2063
Xul Lurq is Chancellor of Qerr'Zolvq Industries, an enterprise responsible for all aspects of power generation, resource extraction, and production within the Federation. They graduated from Gliutip'lyaz University, where they studied for 70 years. Since then, Lurq has donated millions of credits to Gliutip'lyaz University and various charities around the Orion Spur. Chancellor Lurq is also known to give particular attention to Aweiji as it was their birthplace, with a considerable amount of their philanthropy going towards the continued development of the planet’s infrastructure.
As a result of her openness and generosity, Lurq has achieved minor Idolship within the Jargon Federation. A regular host of charity galas, they frequently invite notable idols within the Federation as well as foreign charity trustees and dignitaries. While the general consensus is that Lurq is exemplary and upstanding, rumours regarding unethical management of Qerr’Zolvq persist, with many believing that they maliciously allow the city of Xy’laxi to disregard the environmental policy of Qerrbalak to keep its productivity high.
Birthdate : March 29th 2301
Nalo Gir-Roq holds the position of Overseer of Tuz'qlip Researchers, a company whose aim is to help manage all aspects of Research and Development across the entire Federation. Known for their pioneering work on genetic therapy, they discovered methods to alleviate the damage caused by the genophage brought about by Glorsh-Omega. They are a graduate of the Aliose University of Medical Sciences and regularly teach at the institution, and is a native of Aliose.
Gir-Roq has succeeded in securing his status as an Idol within the Jargon Federation, although some have claimed this is thanks to their underhanded tactics; Gir-Roq's former colleagues have openly stated that he is a slimy individual, willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. Although competitiveness is encouraged within Skrellian society, the Overseer’s former associates state that there are clear lines Gir-Roq crossed. In contrast to these claims, Gir-Roq receives unanimous praise from their students, with their teaching methods being described as ‘unorthodox, yet effective’.
Birthdate : July 12th 2375
Alot Sonq, a popular media figure and politician, is the current President of Nralakk Logistics, a state-owned enterprise tasked with tackling logistics, transport, and communications across the Jargon Federation. Born on Aliose, and raised within the Fedas Archology, Sonq went on to graduate from Qerr’Malic Institute of Technology in 2425. They hold several degrees in fields relating to Information Technology, which allowed them to move up the hierarchy at Nralakk Logistics until their appointment to Chief Executive Officer in 2454.
Sonq has allegedly developed a rather “headstrong” and “obstinate” personality within Nralakk Communications. Employees have often expressed little desire to go against orders received by management. Those that do often find themselves relocated to less desirable departments. While employees are encouraged to bring new avenues to explore to Sonq, very few have admitted to doing so in fear of miscommunication leading to a developing Lu’Poxii relationship.

Kezoq Torq-Bep is the newly appointed Commander of the Jargon Federation's infamous Tupkala. They are personally responsible for overseeing all covert military activity within and outside the Federation's intergalactic borders. Before the Tups, Torq-Bep was a famous member of the Ruupkala, known for their exceptional psionic abilities and energetic presence. Several improvements were made to the Nlom Relay operation procedure under Torq-Bep's influence. Had Torq-Bep not been transferred, they were likely to become the Head of the Ruupkala, given enough time.
Thrust into the precarious position of Tupkala Commander after a rogue predecessor, Torq-Bep is faced with several unfortunate circumstances as they begin their career. Thankfully, Grand Councillor Weashbi has provided massive support across the board for the reformed Tupkala. Within the Tupkala, Torq-Bep has already proven themselves a quick learner and astute leader.

Xuq'mqix Volq was a renowned Linguistics Professor within the Jargon Federation. Born on Aliose almost half a century before the rise of Glorsh-Omega, their education in Linguistics would further allow them to create a rebel language that Glorsh-Omega would not capable of understanding - shielding their plans from any intrusion, being hailed as one of few methods that greatly assisted the efforts.
Professor Volq would then go on to create the Xuq Translator - a device which can only be described as an extremely advanced Enigma Machine capable of deciphering languages. It would go on to assist in numerous diplomatic negotiations, and be installed in almost every Jargon Federation Vessel by 2298 CE. The Xuq Translator was most notably used during first contact with Humanity and Diona. Professor Volq was awarded, post-humorously, for their efforts in both the Glorsh Rebellion and the creation of the Xuq Translator.

Wreshin Tup is the given name of a legendary soldier, philosopher, and poet reputed to have been active from approximately 1800 BCE to 800 BCE. The anthologies of Wreshin Tup are extensive and describe many events, but give little to no insight on their early life. Records believed to date as far back as 1800 BCE describe them as a lone Skrell who travelled between the various governments of Qerrbalak, offering counsel to those who accepted it. From this humble beginning, Wreshin would eventually find themselves to be the leader of a social movement promoting the importance of individual life. Ironically, this respect for individual liberties attracted a small, yet highly skilled, group of militants to support them.
Discrepancies in recorded accounts of the figure vary in regards to their description and demeanour along with their alleged lifespan (which was well beyond the expected lifespan of Skrell at the time) suggest that Wreshin Tup was not a single person. While it is accepted among historians that multiple Skrell took up the mantle of Wreshin Tup during the millennium of its usage, the exact number is unclear and remains a popular point of speculation among scholars.

Tiipis Yla was the first Grand Councillor of the Second Jargon Federation but also an author, guerrilla leader and diplomat. Tiipis rose to prominence after actively voicing their resistance to Glorsh-Omega, somehow evading the tyrannical intelligence through a myriad of different methods. Their spearheading of the revolt against Glorsh-Omega is what got them elected as the first Grand Councillor, and with the introduction of the artificial intelligence ban within the Jargon Federation their position was secured until their death almost a century after coming into power.

Rixulin Fliioux’Quualt was a famous artist, sculptor, and fashion designer known throughout Skrell space. Born in 1898 CE in the city of Juerlduern on Qerrbalak, Rixulin was very social in their childhood. As they grew up, they questioned common themes and motifs in Skrell art. They believed that art, like all things, needed to evolve and change over time. In their mind, what mattered most was creating emotions and passion in people through their work.
His early artwork is very similar to the works of their contemporary artists, but this changed dramatically over their lifetime. They studied historical artforms in their youth and published several theories regarding the evolution of art across the ages and where it would go in the future. They became famous, first, for their avant-garde statues. They sculpted Skrell in daring, proud poses and used multiple kinds of stone in each of their works. The final result was that each statue was drastically different from the other, each being made of materials of varying colours. This style, at first, was met largely with disgust. Many critics claimed their work was shoddy and believed the different colours across each statue’s body made them look gaudy.
Where Rixulin found their popularity was in the youth of the mid-1900s. Young minds saw the outlandish and daring nature of their work, and it inspired them to work in ways that had not been done before. After a team of young researchers attributed their medical breakthroughs to inspiration from Rixulin’s work in 1974 CE, the artist’s many works of art received the attention they deserved. This began a movement of art known to Skrell as Hyper-expressiveness, and soon the avant-garde nature of Rixulin’s work became a thriving sub-culture throughout Skrell space.
