La’Chau are the backbone of slave labor for the Free Trade Consortium. For millennia, the La’Chau had lived a harsh nomadic lifestyle in the rugged deserts of their homelands in Hejuum, the northern continent of Planet Rhinovan. In ancient times, they were notoriously fierce warriors and assassins. Their favored weapon, which they became infamous for, was a huge two-handed scimitar called an okembi. Many wars were fought between the wandering tribes as they met while seeking food. La’Chau share their homeworld with the diminutive Teefoo, who thrive in the rich jungles of the southern continent of Dentoo. The two continents of the planet are separated by the expansive tracts of the Yhonjuss Ocean. As wanderlust and the need to explore took the Teefoo, they built great ships to find what was on the other side of the world... To their regret. Throughout history, any excursion of the Teefoo to Hejuum met with violent and tragic consequences as the La’Chau attacked and enslaved any Teefoo they found on Hejuum. Teefoo could not survive for extended periods in the deserts of Hejuum. When the La’Chau saw how worthless the Teefoo were as slaves, they merely started slaughtering any they found. Very few escaped. The La’Chau used the Teefoo ships to seek out the Teefoo, and warn them to stay away from Hejuum. The La’Chau expedition to Dentoo met with disaster, as the Teefoo were more advanced technologically, and greatly outnumbered the La’Chau. All the La’Chau died fighting. Eventually, the Teefoo decided not to venture too far from Dentoo, and the La’Chau kept to Hejuum.
Around 1900AD, the highly advanced WroGrath came to Rhinovan. In a bloody one-sided battle, they conquered the planet, and added it to their galactic Consortium. La’Chau and Teefoo alike were enslaved by the WroGrath, and still are to modern times, centuries later. La’Chau and Teefoo today have never known anything different but that they must serve the WroGrath. La’Chau serve as heavy laborers and bodyguards for Consortium dignitaries. A La’Chau adventurer would be one who has either served loyally, and bought his or her freedom, or one who escaped, and may still be actively hunted.
Parent star: Xervuus III is known as Rhinovan. Two major continents: Hejuum in the north is mostly harsh, desert climate, and is dominated by the La’Chau. Dentoo in the south is lush, wet rainforest. Most Teefoo live in Dentoo. The planet is very hot, with no real change in climate from season to season. Snow is an alien concept to the natives of Rhinovan.
