An Inheritance of Stars
Shipborn are the crews of the ancient generation ships, who have interbred to the point they are almost a separate race. Average adult height is about 4’6", and secondary sexual characteristics are not immediately obvious to non-Shipborn. Slender, black-haired, pale-skinned, with huge black eyes, they resemble children to other humans.
Shipborn pride themselves on never touching on a planet, referring to those that do as “dirtfoots”. Some of the more extreme Shipborn insist that they have nothing to do with anything produced planetside.
