Mimion: Nature and Technology in Harmony

The heart and soul of Mimian culture connects them to nature. From the birth of their civilization through the development of their space age to their expansion into the galaxy, Mimians retain a respect for and love of all life. They preserve the wilderness of their homeworld—and others—even as their technology soars. Diverse stories unfold against this backdrop of harmony that remains constant throughout their history.

Powerful monarchs vie for supremacy. Peasants battle oppression and slavery. Mediators make their living moving among the various classes. Xivaari eschew the class system and technology altogether and and live the closest to nature. Scientists strive for a future where progress and conservation coincide.
