The Kaelon have a number of curious beliefs, including a predilection for ritual suicide at retirement age, which they call the 'Resolution'. Outsiders may view this custom as rather basic and uncultured, due most notably to the fact that the person in question has no choice in the matter. Technologically, the Kaelon specialise in advanced physics, in all its forms. This is an unfortunate necessity due to the instability of their sun, which they have long sought to cure by means of affecting solar activity. They continually formulate new and innovative methods of energy generation to support their society as a counter-balance for these instabilities.
