The Jardaan are a mysterious alien race native to the Heleus Cluster of the Andromeda galaxy. They are responsible for creating both the Remnant machines and the angara.

Biology Edit

The proportions of the vaults and devices found suggest a species with similar physical traits to humans but with no genetic evidence left behind, their appearance—along with their motivations—remain a mystery.

History Edit

The Jardaan were a highly advanced race that inhabited the Heleus Cluster around 300-400 years ago if their Remnant artifacts on Habitat 7 speak for them.

After some kind of conflict centuries ago, a weapon was detonated on a Jardaan space station that caused the Scourge to spread throughout Heleus. After this catastrophic event, the Jardaan sent the hollow sphere world Meridian adrift and then left the Heleus Cluster. They have not yet returned.

Culture Edit

On a cultural level, its suggested that the Jardaan must have been intelligent and capable of large-scale cooperation.

Technology Edit

Nothing so far is certain about the Remnant builders, save that they are several orders of sophistication above the Initiative's technology. The Jardaan were able to create an interlinked cluster-wide planetary engineering is beyond the logistics or budget of any known species save, perhaps, the Protheans and the Reapers. According to Director Addison, Remnant technology is actually less advanced than Prothean technology. Also, while Prothean technology was simply plug-and-go, Remnant technology "talks differently". Nevertheless, the energy requirements alone suggest a Type II civilization on the Kardashev scale.

Like the Protheans, the Jardaan appear to have reached a level of technological development that utterly eclipses even the most cutting-edge Milky Way devices. Like Prothean artifacts, working Remnant technology is relatively rare and, despite the efforts of various scientists and engineers, very little is known about how it functions. Some of their devices, such as their Vault network, are based on science so advanced that even state-of-the-art AIs cannot even begin to estimate exactly how it functions. Despite its technical sophistication, however, much of the Jardaan's technology appears to have enough similarities to conventional technology that a suitably skilled individual would have little trouble operating it.

Activation of Remnant technology seems to require a synthesis of an organic mind and artificial intelligence.
