Humans are a bit of a categorical paradox: early Homo sapiens formed the root of the humanoids, splitting into countless other intelligent species, but they themselves are also considered humanoids. Though some tend to differentiate between the two as "early humans" and "modern humans", the span of time between the (presumed) moment of contact with the Progenitors and the modern day is relatively short, and there is no true difference. Having reached space travel during the First Age, humans were the key species during The Uprising. While some of the other space-traveling humanoids had begun to realize they shared an unlikely genetic root, it was the appearance of humans that allowed them to connect the dots--and to trace them back to the Progenitors. The rest is, well, history.
Humans are a typical representation of the humanoid body type: bipedal, standing on flat feet, with five-fingered hands. Their skins are mostly bare, though hair-growth (both amount and location) varies.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
As the root species of the humanoids, early humans were taken from their home planet and seeded throughout the galaxy by the Progenitors for their unusually high Vita production, leading to their many descendant species. During the Second Age and beyond, after the death of the Progenitors, there was no longer any large-scale exploitation of humans.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Humans originate on Terra, and are thus mostly commonly found in the Solar System, though they have also spread beyond it during (and after) the First Age.
