Khorsovarolor

Home World of the Khorsoi people and Gillian Manufacturing, Khorsovarolor has been settled for approximately 3,000 years, colonized during the first expansions into galactic space. Though its inhabitants are humans, they have been isolated for a long period. Experiencing a relative lack of contact to other worlds for most of that period, they have developed an interesting society based on the values of the settlers who colonized the planet. Technologically speaking, they have only caught up to the rest of the galaxy in the last three hundred years, and since much of the technology they have is homegrown, they are reluctant to integrate outside equipment into their society.

Khorosovarolor used to be a bustling planet of 2.2 billion until the Plague occurred in YE 30. With the majority of the population wiped out and the resulting Khorsovarolor Occupation that ended in YE 32, Khorsovarolor is now a shell of its former self.
