The Yileans of Gashikan (Gashikan 2732) are a technologically sophisticated Minor Human Race with a human appearance.
The Yileans are a minor human race, native to to Gashikan (Gashikan 2732), a world beyond the border of the Imperium. They are founders of the Second Empire of Gashikan, which occupies part of the Gashikan, Trenchans, and Mendan sectors. They are notable for being one of the most influential Human minor races outside Imperial space, and for their implacable hostility to the Vargr who surround them.
History & Background (Dossier)
Gashikan was contacted by the Vilani and was made part of the First Imperium, like so many other worlds. The coming of the Long Night was particularly difficult on the Yileans, as the Vargr raiders did not have far to go. The Yileans founded the First Empire of Gashikan in -1784 in an attempt to defend themselves. This lasted until -1658 when a strong Vargr naval force attacked Gashikan itself using nuclear missiles.
In -1648, recovering from the assault, the Yileans founded the Second Empire of Gashikan. Feeling the Vargr were an unstable and unsuitable influence, the Empire forced the removal or destruction of all the Vargr within their empire. The Second Empire collapsed in 1070 due to economic problems and a massive civil war. The outcome of the Gashikan civil war resulted in the reformation of the Empire as the Third Empire of Gashikan, though not all members of the original Empire have rejoined the reformed Empire at this time.
