History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Callia has a significant Jonkeereen minority population.

The only water available on Callia is in natural underground aquifers, and the communities are ruled by the technician caste, who operate the vital pumps and filters. Callia joined the Imperium in 392.

A rocky, desert planet. Jonkeereen represent about a quarter of the world’s population, but remain almost invisible by dwelling deep in the planet’s deserts. The mainline humans cluster around artesian wells managed and controlled by technicians. They’re not fond of visitors, whether they be off-worlders or Jonkeereen; this suits the Jonkeereen just fine.
