Hekaht is a chief engineer of one of the Dawn sections. He is close friends with Gharr and Zane, although for the latter the line of duty often stands in the way of their friendship. Hekaht is a mixed race of Rrirkhean blood, he inherited the color and proportions from the Riykian, and the structure of his face is more similar to the Rrirkhean. His upper right arm was partially replaced with a cyber prosthesis, and this was a voluntary decision by Hekaht based on his deep interest in technology. Although there are prostheses on the market that can very reliably imitate a real hand, Hekaht chose a model that does not try to hide its nature, because of his opinion that any cyber prosthesis imitating a real limb will be subconsciously perceived by others as trying to mimic and hide the prosthesis, and therefore will seem creepy, in the style of "Ominous Valley". It is unlikely that the term "transhumanist" can be dubbed an alien, but Hekaht definitely fits the criteria. However, he is introverted and awkward in dealing with strangers, preferring the company of friends or technology. Hekaht is especially AI friendly, and spends a lot of his free time talking to the ship's AI xenolinguist. His hobby is to collect all available crumbs of information about Azinarsi.
