History and background
Due to the corrosive nature of their atmosphere, few Napu have even been outside an artificial environment.
Napu was initially setup up in 102 to mine heavy metals. Poor filtration system design resulted in a radiation and heavy metal taint in within the domes themselves. The descendants of the original miners have now adapted to this but at a cost; in order to cope natives have evolved an adaptive metabolism. Their DNA has the ability for rapid and error-free repair of cellular damage from the background radiation as well as the biological need to ingest what to others would be a poisonous excess of rare earths such as arsenic. As a result of these adaptations, Napu are now unable to reproduce with other races of Humaniti and are thus dying out due to excessive inbreeding.
