    From a Human's Perspective

    There was never any doubt that we were not the first. Evidence of the precursor races was not long in coming; broken husks of long dead cities and ancient derelicts standing silent testament to their vanished creators, kept vigil as humanity broached the stars. But for all signs of the life that once was, there were remarkably few living races to share the expanse, at least until Eden.

    For three centuries humanity had marched without opposition from earth. Alone, humanity turned on itself and fought. Then a mysterious signal, elusive and definitively nonhuman was picked up. Part in panic and fear and part out of curiosity, humanity abandoned their fratricide to investigate.

    The signal lead humanity to an unexplored system, were a single world orbited a star nearing the end of its life. Explores found a virgin world, untouched, harboring a long abandoned citadel. What its purpose was not discernable and its discovery was immediately overshadowed. Humanity had not been the only one to detect the emissions of the ancient outpost. No less than three other species arrived within hours of humanity. After being alone for so long, humanity had finally met their neighbors.

    Using the language of once passed civilians, which had been commonly discovered, the four empires met each other. Eden, the named given to the world by humanity, became a diplomatic hub.

    United Human Alliances
    The UHA, made up of the many sub-species of Humanity created after the biotech and cyborg tech revolutions. 2 sub-species consider themselves the "Pure" Humanity, 4 are biotech branches, and 2 are cyborg branches. The government is a loose confederation of worlds led by a weak central council which is more worried about member worlds' rights than citizens' rights.

    "Pure Humanity"
    Earth-based - these are the human races which have not left Earth
    Colonies-based - these are human races which have left Earth, but have not heavily gone into biotech or cyborg tech

    Biotech Humanity
    Darrians - genetically-engineered space elves, basically
    Zhodani - genetically-engineered psychics
    Uplifted - not humanity, but animal species that have been raised to sentience. Primates and genetically-engineered animals mostly.

    Cyborg Humanity
    Proto Immortals - Believe in shedding their flesh and creating immortality
    Upgraders - Believe that humanity simply needs to upgrade to catch up for evolution


    Vakium Consortium
    The Consortium is made up of several species, and is run more as a corporation than as a government. People hold stock in the government, and use that to elect the board of directors, which rules with the CEO.

    The Hivers (fucking wierd) and Dryone (winged casted beings) are the main species of the Consortium. The Dryone are usually given a level or field within society when they leave their creche, and rarely move beyond it, though they can still move up and down within that field. Hivers are able to move freely throughout fields and levels of society, and do so often.


    Dungogi Federation
    Similar to the United Human Alliance, the Federation is a more centralized government, which is more concerned with citizens' rights, and each member world has less autonomy.

    The Vargr (wolf people) and K'Kree (camel people) are the main species of the Federation. In the military, The Vargr serve the Navy and Marines, while the K'Kree usually serve the Army. This is due to the K'Kree dislike for small, enclosed spaces. They use huge transports to move their Army, while the Vargr are as comfortable as any other species in enclosed spaces and thus use similar designs.


    The Barthis Empire
    The only "true" empire of the 4, this empire rules as an autocracy, with the Emperor ruling over all subjects, and lesser nobles ruling noble families.

    The Aslan (lion people) and Ursa (bear people) are the main species of the Empire. The Aslan are the 'commoners' of the society, with most being in the working or middle class while only a few being raised to the level of nobility. Meanwhile, the Ursa make up most of the nobility and some of the middle class, with few doing actual labor.
