The Blackmane Order is an ancient group of Beastmasters nearly as old as the Galactic Alliance itself.
The Order consists of members of all races who all have close ties with the Lifestream. They all have a natural ability to communicate with animals (a la Dr. Doolittle)
They act as Galactic Peacekeepers with beasts who aid them in combat. They go wherever they are needed.
Each member of the order has at least one beast that they have close bonded ties with.
The order is currently headed by a Spaceborn named Ina'nys'iev, who is the only member to command a Talokun.
