Zeno is a term used by the governments of humanity to refer to all non-human, non-Solar sentient lifeforms.
Zeno exist all across the galaxy, living and ruling in various governments, empires and planets.
There have been few widespread nations of zeno in the area of space that humanity has lived in, and most are confined to their home planets or, at the very most, their home system and surrounding systems.
Many human nations have viewed zeno in different ways. Some have embraced them, while others look upon them in disgust and hatred. Many zeno species have been exterminated because of these fears. The New Solar Federation's stance on zeno is mixed; those that they deem passive are accepted into the federation if they so wish, but more hostile ones are kept out, oppressed, or even destroyed. Several 'passive' zeno species live even in Sol itself, on the worlds of Mercari and Titania.
There are also human subspecies, people genetically linked to baseline humans but diverged enough to be classified as an entirely different species. Many of them are engineered races from ancient governments, but most simply diverged due to their planets conditions.
List of zeno Edit
Morgyn - The Morgyn are a species of psychoid scattered across the Majoria Sector. Highly intelligent, they are extremely limited due to their weak physical state and their inability to move objects, with their bodies living off of various gases. They move around by floating. They are often employed as advisors.
Leminik - The Leminik are a passive species primarily located on the planet of Merceri, in the Solar System. Most of them live in squalor and poor conditions.
