Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
Gran originally came from the world and system of Kinyen in the Expansion Region. They are longtime members of galactic society, with numerous colonies. Although most of these colonies are peaceful, theur colony on Malastare quickly became embroiled in a bitter conflict with the native Dugs, forcing the Gran to act aggressively to protect themselves.
Gran place society over self, and they receive training that complements both their personal talents and society’s needs. The desire to maintain balance within society caused the Gran to establish alien-only areas of Kinyen. This was intended to restrict alien influence and avoid trouble between species, such as what happened on Malastare. During the Dark Times, the Empire has pushed the Gran leadership to grant access to all areas. When the Gran refused, Kinyen was subjected to orbital bombardment. The Kinyen Gran relented, but the incident inspired many Gran to resist the new Empire.
Personality: Gran are highly social and unable to stand solitude, or isolation from other Gran, for any length of time. Most are talkative, friendly, and hospitable. They are slow to anger. Gran friendships are for life. Gran from Malastare and other colonies follow looser social codes than those from the homeworld.
Physical Description: The beige-skinned Gran have three distinctive eye stalks with pitch-black eyes, ahead of small horns and large, triangular ears. Males and females have similar builds.
Homeworld: Kinyen, with colonies on many other worlds, including Hok and Malastare.
Language: Gran speak, read, and write Basic and Gran.

Adventurers: Heroic Gran are often nobles, scoundrels, scouts, and bounty hunters. Prior to the Dark Times, Gran Jedi consulars were common, and it is possible that some survived the initial Jedi purge. Afte rthe bombardment of Kinyen, individualistic Gran find themselves open to other methods of serving society, looking for new ways to resist the Empire.
