Talk:Variant Human Race
- EXTERNAL LINK: Something that isn't emphasized enough in Traveller is Transhumanism. How would this impact character creation?
Known Variant Human Races: 1116
The following known variant races exist within Charted Space:
- Lamura Teg
The Acheron were genetically engineered to exploit the mineral wealth of their homeworld. They are stronger, tougher and more resistant to high radiation levels.
The Jonkeereen were created in the 6th Century by SuSAG under contract from the Ministry of Colonization to create a Human race that could survive in hazardous environments. A breeding population was originally established on Jonkeer. They have subsequently spread to a number of other worlds Behind the Claw.
7. Lamura Teg
The Nexxies were recently genetically engineered to help exploit the water world of Nexine (Spinward Marches 3030). The Nexine Mining Consortium was granted the license to mine resources from Nexine, but most high tech mining methods damage the local environment and prevent the creation of Gemores. The first true Nexxies were bred in 1096, making them the youngest human race.
