History and background[edit]

Gvadh is a unique example of interspecies co-operation in that it has retained strong cultural ties with both races while creating a subculture that is uniquely its own. Gvadh has been classified as 9 (Harmonious Integration) on the Tetusu-Dene scale as regards the S'mrii and other non-human sentients though human visitors should be warned that most Gvadh Vargr, especially the larger Urzaeng, will generally be extremely hostile and xenophobic towards them.

Originally colonized in -1650 by Gvegh-Aek and Urzaeng Vargr fleeing the Sack of Gashikan. The Vargr remained undiscovered until -344 when they were found by a S'mrii research ship. Shortly afterward a peaceful joint colony was established. Unfortunately, after the planet's discovery by the Imperium the Vargr were shamelessly exploited for several centuries and it is only in the last 300 years that they have been able, with help from the S'mrii colony, to cast off their servitude.
