History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rushu is a Vargr world that is a Client State of the Zhodani Consulate.

Rushu is notable as the one world in the Marches colonized by Vargr. In 1070 the Rukh Aegz (the Worlds of Leader Rukh) first established the colony, buying out the existing human settlements at a fair price. In 1099, Rushu declared its independence from the Rukh Aegz and aligned itself with the Zhodani.
