In 690AE, the Aquillan geneticist, Dr Desmond Orpheus, created the first Orebinites based on Artek genetic theories. Orebinites are Humans modified in utero using Dr Orpheus's process. A common statement made among Orebinites is, "We are what Dr Orpheus made us." You are an Orebinite only if you were gestated using the process, or if both parents were Orebinite. Orebinites were created to be soldiers on heavy gravity worlds without having to rely on mechanical assistance to be able to move effectively. The people were used extensively in the Aquillan's Secitonian campaigns. Orebinites are phenomenal soldiers, but have problems when they are not fighting in war.

Since their creation, Orebinites have been greatly maligned by Humans. Many Orebinites that make attempts at a 'normal' life fail. Their innate programming & conditioning make it difficult to deal with normalcy. They have been known to greatly overreact to minor situations, making minor conflicts deadly. A small altercation with an Orebinite can lead to bodily injury or death, because that's what the Orebinite was made for. Orebinites have been known to be mentally unstable. Because of the week long day on Seciton, many Orebinites have developed sleep disorders. More than half of Orebinites that try to have a normal life end up either imprisoned, dead, or going back to the Aquillans.

Orebinites are reknowned mercenaries & obedient, often fanatical soldiers. Many Orebinites hold a religious reverance to the Aquillan Imperium.
