You guys asked about the Dark Age “model of the week”..the Cabrakan. The reason for the skulls motif, the look of the weapons, and the stepped pyramid is due to Mayan influence. Essentially this is a construct/ritual engine sent into battle by Devoted Priests to kill enemies and harness their soul energy wherein it gets more powerful and heals from all the soul energy it collects. So it is a technomantic construct with strange alien technology powered by souls and life energy.
Here is a brief intro to the Kukulkani: Millennia ago the ancient Mayans of Terra where chosen by their god and master, the winged serpent Kukulkan, to be elevated above the lowly tribes of the world. Their master, in reality a member of the powerful and technologically advanced Coatl race, lifted his willing servants up and has, over millenia, shaped them into a race of bio-enhanced warriors and zealous priests, eager to gain his blessing by slaying all those who would oppose his will.
Essentially the Mayans from Earth were taken away by an alien race and a long time later, the same race (with the descendants of those humans) showed up on the planet that Dark Age takes place on. They use “entropic power sources” which essentially means they use the power of life and sacrifice as part of their technology.
Similar in motif to the Lizardmen in fantasy.
