Humans, known taxonomically as Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man" or "knowing man"), are a sentient species native to Earth. They take a no-nonsense approach, a tough and stern outlook with a goal of rebuilding civilization as quickly as possible.
History[edit | edit source]
Humans originated on Earth, but everything changed when they discovered the Traveler during an expedition to Mars. The Traveler's arrival heralded the start of humanity's Golden Age, a period of prosperity with medical and technological advancements that allowed humans to colonize much of the solar system, triple their lifespan, and even create a sapient race of machines called the Exo.
The Golden Age did not last, however, and a century after it began, an ancient enemy of the Traveler, dubbed the Darkness, nearly eradicated humanity, and all of their settlements across the Solar System were completely lost. The remaining members of humanity fled back to their native planet and were saved by the Traveler, which sacrificed itself to stop this enemy.
