Ayansh'i[edit]

Ayansh'i are mentioned in Reaver's Deep Sector Sourcebook, p. 48-49. Their homeworld is Ghost (Reaver's Deep 3115). They are a different Hominid species than Homo sapiens, but their taxonomic name has not been mentioned.

Azhanti are mentioned in GURPS Traveller: Humaniti, p. 24-29. Their homeworld is Irale (Antares 2315). They are a different Hominid species than Homo sapiens, but their taxonomic name has not been mentioned.

Bye-Ren[edit]

Bye-Ren

Cafadans[edit]

Cafadans are mentioned in Travellers' Digest No.3, p. 47. Their homeworld is Cafad (Corridor 3135). There is little or no description of this race, so it could be Human or it could be Hominid.

Cassilldans[edit]

Cassilldans (also spelled Casilldans or Cassildans) are pictured in Solomani & Aslan, p. 24 as a tall, sword-wielding minor human race. No other details are provided. In Traveller Chronicle 11 they are described for the New Era as "contacted by the Terrans during the Second Imperium (Rule of Man). Their total fascination with all things Terran, and a belief that they were to play a significant role in Terran history, led and them in 605 to establish a colony on Terra on the coast of Lebanon near Tyre" (35). Illustrations also appear in Traveller 5th on pages 54 (craftsman) and 572 (Core Rules v5.09). There they are described as "a minor branch of Humanity, abandoned by one of Grandfather’s Sons on a low gravity world in the aftermath of the Ancient War.' Their homeworld, Ambemsham (Antares 0216 A5457BC-B), is a tide-locked world in orbit 0 of Krof, an M3 V star with an M6 V companion in Antares Sector (Core Rules pp. 546 and 572).

Darmine[edit]

No information yet available.

Darrians[edit]

Darrians live in a small group of worlds immediately spinward of the Imperium or the Regency. Such is the cosmopolitan nature of Darrian society that, within Darrian borders, you can find 'pure' Darrians, Aslan (mostly citizens of the Confederation, although a small number of Ihatei have been allowed to settle on Darrian worlds), Zhodani and Imperials. Darrians mass slightly less than other Humans on average, probably due to their origins on a low-gravity world. The Darrians are detailed in Classic Traveller Alien Module 8 "Darrians - The Secret of the Star Trigger" and GURPS Traveller: Humaniti. Their taxonomic name is Homo sapiens darrianus.

Dynchia[edit]

Dynchia are mentioned in GURPS Traveller: Humaniti, p. 50-59 and in JTAS No. 24, p. 44-48. Their homeworld is Melantris (Leonidae 2733). Their taxonomic name is Homo dynchia.

Nine of the Lightning class cruisers had very similar names [<Something> High Lightning]. Of those, one was named after the Vilani, five were named after minor human races living inside the Imperium but outside the Solomani Sphere, and one was named after a variant human race (the Acheron). The last two were the Fiorin and the Ilurian. Odds are that they, too, are minor human races.

Floriani[edit]

Of those, one was named after the Vilani, five were named after minor human races living inside the Imperium but outside the Solomani Sphere, and one was named after a variant human race (the Acheron). The last two were the Fiorin and the Ilurian. Odds are that they, too, are minor human races.

Plexxans[edit]

Plexxan. Near enough to Human, two legs, two arms, a head, but with a strange metabolism, and an added awareness sense that saw fields and auras that Humans can’t. There is little or no description of this race, so it could be Human or it could be Hominid.
