Minor Human Race

As well as the three human sub-species that are recognized as Major Races, there are 46 others known to Imperial science classified as minor races (though some dispute this classification). Many human races are indistinguishable from each other though a few began from a small gene pool and/or developed in an extreme environment develop unique characteristics.

One additional classification is Variant Human Race, one that has been genetically altered since the Ancients scattered Humaniti. The Solomani, in particular, have applied genetic engineering to their own race a number of times. Often these new human races are erroneously classified as minor races, whether or not they are descended from a major race. They are also sometimes erroneously referred to as chimeras.
