In 23BE, Humans established colonies on Epsilon Auriga III. The planet was renamed Byrsellus, after Jürgen Byrsel, the colony ship's captain, who had died on the voyage. Byrsellus being 4570 light years from Earth, this was the furthest any Terran vessel had ever travelled from Earth at the time. The colony thrived for 23 years, until the Ovmörtacian Surge turned everything upside down. As with most of the Universe, the colony was thrown into turmoil by the wild magickal forces cascading throughout reality. Byrsellus itself was one of the planets affected drastically by the Surge. The planet became a mirror for the mystical nature of the extradimensional Planet Ovmörtacia itself. Land masses changed in a great upheaval to resemble more closely those of Ovmörtacia... but it's not an exact copy. To this day, most but the simplest of technologies fail when coming within the influence of the planet's aura. (About 250 to 1000 miles from the surface)
Humans born on Byrsellus or born of Byrsellan parents are slightly different from other Humans. They are generally smarter, more mystically attuned, and usually of a smaller build than other Humans. Their life span also more than doubled. Byrsellans are reknowned magus and cleric types. Byrsellus is ruled by a Magocracy, with the most powerful users of magick running feudalistic kingdoms similar to medieval Earth.
Byrsellan diet is similar to that of normal Humans.
Similar to Human trends, but often more chaotic.
Most look like normal Humans, but more oddities and aberrations are the norm than with a typical Human.
Names are as Human, but more exotic ones are also likely.
Unnaturally lucky & intuitive. Natural magick attunement. Strong willed and resolute. More susceptible to toxins.
