Who’s Who

War has waged across the Corvus Cluster for six years now, and an assortment of heroes—and villains—have emerged. I thought it would be useful to put together a “Who’s Who” of our small corner of the galaxy.

I’ve attempted to include all individuals who’ve been active since our narrative campaign began on 3 001 735.M41, and I have included a number of individuals who are only casually mentioned in passing. Everyone is organized alphabetically, albeit under various factions within the Sector.

As possible, I have included links to more detailed biographies—or at least to their first reference in the various “historical documents.”—TheGM
