History and Background
Kourae has tolerated the direct rule of one or another off-world Vargr system or pirate pack for centuries now. Instead of rejecting the aliens, the local citizenry have focused on teaching the Vargr the right (read: Vilani) way to live, with remarkable success. This success has been further leveraged by the local population to a rather strong technological base, as the knowledge of Vargr science is re-shaped into a Vilani form.
Quite a lot of Ovaghoun Vargr have an intense admiration of Vilani culture, and among the greatest of honors is to be legally considered a True Vilani Gentleman. It is broadly acknowledged that in the Rukadukaz Republic, it is the Cultural Associations of Kourae who have the stringiest standards - and is the home of the best and most widely respected Civilized Minds of the Republic.
After Ikon (Empty Quarter 1602) herself, Kourae has had a major hand in making the Ovaghoun who they are today. Cultural goods and local rulings on Proper Behavior have a major influence on Ovaghoun behavior across Charted Space. Moreover, there is a steady flow of visitors, priests, academics, historians, and traders from distant Vland, helping to keep the local Vargr on the safe and certain road of Complete Conformity.
