Native Sophont (NIL): Ladybugs[edit]

Amiens is the homeworld for the Ladybugs a native minor race that has successfully assimilated into Solomani society. Once a TL 0 race, they have adapted to Amiens’ TL 4 Human society. All wear human clothes, speak Anglic with a lisping accent, and belong to the Church. Most Solomani farms have Ladybug domestic and farmworkers. Amiens’ Solomani Party arranges for surplus Ladybugs to emigrate to find jobs on other Consolidation of Turin worlds and sometimes to serve as stewards or cargo hands aboard starships.


Amiens is a rich, low-tech Solomani Confederation world located in Ziusudra Subsector of Alpha Crucis Sector.
