The Selenites are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A Selenite is a human chimera race possessing subtle genetic modifications in order to thrive in low or micro-gravity environments.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Selenites were engineered during the early years of Terran colonization of the solar system, before the widespread introduction of Gravity control technology. They are a willowy genotype adapted for early Terran colonies on Luna and Ceres.

The Selenites used paraterraforming to settle a dozen worlds in Alpha Crucis Sector, starting in –2222 with Velscur in Veracruz Subsector. Other important Selenite worlds in Alpha Crucis include Brookwall, Duncan, Fairday, Faro, Iamir, Wiseman, and Ychanon.

Psychology & Philosophy[edit]

The highly self-sufficient nature of these ‘worldhouse’ societies meant that many of them ended up turning inward and developing a somewhat xenophobic attitude.

Many Selenites, used to their carefully managed worlds, find ‘wild’ planets strange, dangerous and frightening.
