“The Borg came and our world died in flames. Lost beyond recovery our past must make way for our future or all will have been lost.”
The Lorillians are a humanoid species who are distinguishable from humans by the vertical cleft between their brow. Approximately 15 years ago in 2381 their homeworld was destroyed by the Borg and about three-quarters of their population was lost. The survivors lived off-world in Lorillian colonies, ships or on other worlds. The two main Lorillian colonies have established their own unique self-governments since the destruction of their homeworld.
Their species have subsequently undergone massive social change with each colony developing its own culture and smaller groups integrating with other species. Over half their remaining population has abandoned their traditional beliefs and there has been a large increase in mental illness.
The Lorillians have an unusual aspect to their development in that up until the age of 4 they can only breathe methyl oxide and must be gradually weaned onto oxygen. Lorillians can also breathe methylacetylene.
As the Lorillians are a playable species, there are lots of opportunities to grow and explore the interactions of the two main colonies now that their homeworld is gone. Learn more about this species from their wiki page.
