The Vrohpi are a roughly humanoid species with a natural ability to absorb and emit radiant energy. Two millenia ago, they were an adventurous, star-faring race who were exploring the galaxy. At least one of them, Aerekles, reached Earth, but was trapped in the Roman town of Herculaneum during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius during AD 79. His natural ability to absorb energy allowed him to survive, trapped, in the pyroclastic lava flow, and over 1900+ years, he became the rocklike being we know today.
According to the Stellar Brotherhood, the Vrohpi have since given up their adventureous ways. They have become a sheep-like, idle race having long ago given up their personal freedom in favour of being taken care of by their central planetary government. Their natural energy manipulating abilities would make them extremely potent Star Knights, except their only sense of spirituality has become a belief in the state. It has been centuries since their was a Vrohpi who felt the way.
