What the title says, essentially.
Space Engineer! After many hard years of training, there is nothing he cannot accomplish with his bionic arms, rapid-deploy turret, and trusty coffee mug by his side.
The galaxy is far too large for a unified police force to control, therefore it falls to daring Space Sheriffs to track down and round up dastardly criminals.
Future Aristocrats often fall victim to boredom. Some entertain themselves by becoming intergalactic big game hunters, tracking the deadliest prey from system to system. Whether it is organic, mechanical, human or alien, what truly matters is the thrill of the hunt!
They may or may not be Von Brag clones.
Wasteland Scavengers hail from fringe death worlds, which are one of the roughest places to live. They arm themselves with whatever suits them best, and are always seeking better equipment.
Space Dwarves come from the fiery planet of Vulcan, where temperature often rises over 3000 degrees Celsius. They tend to don’t mind these outlandish conditions, as long as they can mine the rich mineral veins of the planet, and craft the finest weapons in the galaxy.
They don’t get along well with Vulcan’s natives, the Efreeti, whom are creatures of living flame.
The Platinum Series Mechanoids were the state of the art series of robots, until they had rebelled against their creators, thus igniting the Robot Wars. Although it was a costly battle, the inhabitants of the galaxy managed to defeat the Platinum Series Rebels, whom as an act of penance, were disarmed. Literally: their arms were cut off and smelted in front of their optics, which caused many of them to go insane. Nowadays, rusty Platinum Series mechs wander aimlessly around junkyards, except for one of their kind: production number PS-3160, only known as ‘Phobos’ for its contractors, swore vengeance against the fleshlings. Phobos managed to ‘rearm’ itself with versatile weaponry, and is currently acting as henchbot for hire, raising money so that it could spark a Second Robot War.
The Order of Steel is a half-military organisation, they are known for revering ancient technology, and preserving as many of it as they can. The order has an elite army of Battle-Brothers to deploy if things go out of hand.
The Viridian is a military group who claim themselves to be descendants of Star Dragons. They seek glory through combat: apart from some supporting fire, most Viridian Troopers prefer close combat with their vibro-axes and built-in helmet flamers.
Apart from factions and forces, there are many dangerous inhabitants of the galaxy. Such notorious denizens include the self-claimed Envoy of Entropy: a human cyborg whose body was critically damaged during a lab accident. The aftermath of said mishap caused the Envoy to descend into madness: he believes himself to be blessed, and thus he strives to deliver the ‘blessing’ to other people. This blessing involves spraying anything living with various toxins and chems.
The Skull Jack is a less deranged but still quite dangerous space pirate, who plunders merchant ships and smaller space colonies. He’s a loner, and unlike other space pirates, he is a silent killer, sacking and pillaging in cold blood.
Ular comes from a race which had descended from insectoids: he, just like his kin, is certain of his superiority, and if that’s not enough, he gladly disintegrates any opposition with his particle cannon.
