Characters

Brief Summary

Many years ago humans used up their home planet, leaving Earth-that-was lifeless and uninhabitable. Humans fled into space and found new homes, a series of terraformed planets and moons. The Core planets are "civilized," full of gleaming cities and the highest technology, the outer planets are wilder, untamed, violent, just scraping by. The planets are all at least nominally ruled by an interplanetary Alliance and a devious shadow corporation called Blue Sun, following a violent war between them and the Independents, called the Browncoats, who were all but wiped out. The outer fringes of space are still more dangerous, with Reavers, creatures no longer human, lurking and taking unwary ships and towns.

Darting between the Alliance and the Reavers is a culture of smugglers and petty thieves, making their way as best they can. Among them is one small ship, Firefly class, called Serenity.
