The Mutants

The Mutants are the terrifying former Terrans that reside on Gaia. They were not lucky enough to get on an evacuation ship during the devastation of ancient Gaia. Some of them have survived over the years, twisted beyond recognition either by the Biomass, or the exposure of successive generations to the extreme levels of ionizing radiation on Gaia.

As only few Terran expeditions to Gaia have survived the onslaught of mutant attacks, it is no surprise that they are universally feared and despised in Terran space.
