The Florians of Floria (Trojan Reach 0213) are a Minor Human Race with a humanoid appearance and technologically advanced sophonts.

Physiology[edit]

The Floriani are notable for their dimorphism. The ruling group, the Barnai, are short, weak, and of high intelligence, while the workforce is comprised of Feskals, who are large, muscular, and of low intelligence. Other minor details of anatomy also set them apart from the rest of Humaniti.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Floriani were contacted by the Aslan in -170, but the two races got along rather poorly. Some Aslan settled a few Florian worlds, but on the whole the relationship was very uneasy. In 185, they were contacted by the IISS, and a neutral relationship began. In 430, the Floriani encountered human settlers from the Imperium and welcomed them into the League. In 506, they formed the Florian League, in order to unify their government and culture.

For 550 years, the League gradually grew, reaching its present size in 1054. At that time, one or two Aslan clans commenced raiding inside the League, and soon after the publication of the Imperial Second Survey, the League established a unified military and built bases on several worlds.

During the Rebellion, Aslan attacked the League en masse, while at the same time swarming across the Borderland to attack the Imperium. Most of the worlds of the Nora'a subsector were captured in 1117, but after that no more headway was made.

Social Organization[edit]

The ruling group, the Barnai, are short and weak, while the workforce is comprised of Feskals, large, muscular, and unintelligent. Other minor details of anatomy also set them apart from the rest of Humaniti.

Although accusations of slavery or exploitation might be voiced in Imperial society, the relationship between Barnai and Feskals is perfectly acceptable to both parties. High ethical standards combine with the stoic Floriani demeanor to foster cooperation and solidarity in defiance of physical differences.

Technology & Trade[edit]

The Floriani are also noteworthy for their unusual path of technological development. Highly advanced in the realms of transportation and weaponry, the Floriani are abnormally backward in the life sciences. Within the Florian League, the masses have odd notions toward technology, and all Floriani instinctively shy away from true research. Even creativity in the arts is a rarity.
