History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Due to the corrosive nature of their atmosphere, few Napu have even been outside an artificial environment.

  • Napu was initially setup up in 102 to mine heavy metals.
  • Poor filtration system design resulted in a heavy metal taint in within the domes themselves.
  • The descendants of the original miners have now adapted to this but at a cost; in order to cope natives have evolved an adaptive metabolism.
  • Their DNA has the ability to for rapid and error-free repair of cellular damage from the background radiation as well as the biological need to ingest what to others would be a poisonous excess of rare earths such as arsenic.
  • As a result of these adaptations Napu are now unable to reproduce with other races of Humaniti and are thus dying out due to excessive inbreeding.
