Artificial Enhanced Life Form(AELF) is a catch all term for sentient robots, androids, AI, and other non-organic self aware constructs. Aelfs generally fall into two factions; the Coexistence or Coex faction, and the Segregation or Seg factions.
Coex desire peaceful coexistence with organic races while seg want to be left alone and believe in the superiority of artificial life forms. Coex live among the organic races on planets and other centers of civilization.
Segs try to exist in isolated areas outside of 'organic control' often in wandering fleets or resource mining in asteroid fields or uninhabitable planets. While unwilling to take part in organic society, Segregationist Aelfs will still trade resources and occasionally technology. The majority of Seg groups are neutral parties with a very small percentage being truly intolerant of organic life forms.
