WiHH rev
This technologically superior alien empire has so far-proved little threat — as long as humans stay on their side of the border. The few times Vau ambassadors have parleyed with humans, trouble has resulted, although in forms hard to trace back to the Vau. For instance, the Vau “gifted” humanity with the jumpcoordinates to reach a previously lost world called Pandemonium. This world in turn revealed coordinates to another lost world called Iver. A cold war for the spoils of these new worlds began; the Vau’s present has proven most troublesome.


They are humanoid in shape, but they aren't very human-like, being more akin to the "green men" of pop culture. They have three distinctive chastes between the race, that belong to the same hatches and parents. The chastes aren't as easy to define in human terms, as the "obvious" leaders, the so-called mandarins, aren't actually the leaders but the leadership is divided among the three chastes depending on the world.

Superior TechEdit

If the Vau were to expand into Human Space, no one is sure if they could be halted, for their tech is impressive. Human’s stole their own knowledge about energy shields and blasters from early Vau encounters. It is theorized that the Vau know far more about these fields than has been revealed.


Humans aren't allowed to enter on Vau space except from a few worlds. All diplomatic contact is made at an island in Vril-Ya, but they are insofar frustrating enough to be a dead destiny. The main efforts are made by House Justinian. 

Vau have also made a few claims. They "liberated" the world of Manitou from the Church's influence, propmting the world to be a jumbled mess of factions and antinomists.
