The Faz were a member of the Sentient Milieu and were the first to fall to the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za Path of Now and Forever before the first Doctrinal War. The Faz, unlike most of the former Milieu species, are speculated to still be alive somewhere in the galaxy, having survived the years of slavery in the Dnyarri Slave Empire and the Ur-Quan Slave Revolt, afterwards trapped under a slave shield by the Kzer-Za.
Due to the fact that the Utwig's homeworld is named Fahz, a very similar-sounding name, and that there are vague references in their mythological history to an event involving the "sky canopies of Fahz" and the falling of the "veils" that may be a reference to the disintegration of a slave shield. One theory held by a few is that Fahz is the original Faz homeworld, and the Utwig are either descended from the Faz or otherwise somehow related to them. This might partially explain the technological prowess of the Jugger starship. However, there is precious little evidence to support such theories; if this event indeed occurred then the records are lost in the far distant past to everyone except possibly the Kzer-Za.
