Autarchs are genetically enhanced humans, modified to exhibit greater intelligence, stamina and strength compared to baseline humans. They are as diverse as baseline humans, except for their golden eyes which are shared by all Autarchs.
The average Autarch stand 190 cm tall and weighs 80 kg. He has golden eyes, but otherwise looks like a baseline human.
Most Autarchs are ruthless, selfish creatures that care only for their own advancement in life - if necessary at the expense of others. They regard all non-Autarchs as lesser beings, and consider useless except as slave labour and - if necessary - cannon fodder.
Autarchs live in a militaristic society, which promotes the superiority of the Autarch sub-species, blind obedience, discipline and skill at arms.
An Autarch is physically and mentally similar to humans, but display a greater physical strength and endurance and greater intelligence. Psionic abilities manifest in one out of one hundred million. Autarch telepaths tend to use their abilities for their own advancement.
