The Wreek was an ethnic group living in the southern hemisphere of [[Gradius (planet)|Planet Gradius]]. Although their lifestyle was primitive, they possessed psychic powers which allowed them to communicate telepathically with other tribes. The psychic power possessed by a wreek was known as "Wreek Power" and was known to be usable as an energy source for all kinds of powered equipment and living bodies. This singular power is maintained by a strong and special magnetic ion held in their bodies, thus making them susceptible to a variety of cosmic rays which exist in nature, this being their reason for taking residence in the southern hemisphere, where the incidence of cosmic rays is relatively low. However, the Imperial Government grieved over the wreek people, refusing recognition.

However, the wreeks felt distrust on the Empire and opposed the Empire's protection policy, all wreeks except James, who was housed in the Space Agency for wreek power research, and who would soon leave the Imperial Government.

The Wreek is an ethnic group appearing in the Gradius and Nemesis series.

History

The Wreek were one of the native ethnic groups which inhabited Planet Gradius, and the only group to live on the planet's southern hemisphere. Descending from the same ancestor of the Ancient Latis Civilization, the Wreek possessed a psychic power known as Wreek Power, which can be harnessed as a energy source.

The Wreek Power is maintained by a strong magnetic ion held in their bodies, thus making them susceptible to a variety of cosmic rays which exist in nature. Because of this the Wreek were forced to settle on Gradius's southern hemisphere, where the incidence of cosmic rays was relatively low, living a simple and primitive lifestyle.

For a long time the Wreek remained isolated from the rest of the planet due to the Imperial Government refusing recognition. However, during the Northern Cross War a lot of cosmic radiation rained down upon Gradius, and this had a huge impact on the Wreek, with many of them perishing as a result. After the end of the war, only 12 Wreeks remained, with four more dying due to the Empire's neglect. With time, the tensions would only grow worse between the Wreek and the Empire. The remaining Wreek survivors, led by Venom, would come to join the Gradius Space Agency. After the Empire receives a report on the Wreek Power, they finally decide on recognizing the Wreek and launch a protection policy, though this would do little to lower the tensions.

After the sunspot of the sun disappears, the Imperial government hastens the protection policy and the implementation of the Wreek Power as a new energy source. The newly-developed Wreek Power engine would be employed on the new spatiotemporal fighter Vic Viper, which was employed during the First Bacterian War. After this war, Venom attempts a coup against the Empire along with his fellow Wreek aides but fails, being exiled to the prison planet Sard. After escaping and aligning himself with the Bacterians, he launches a full-scale attack against Gradius, only to be stopped by James Burton, who was also a Wreek. After the war against Venom James would be the only surviving Wreek left. as such, his eventual death would mark the extinction of the Wreek, though James would leave descendants which inherited his Wreek powers.
