Colonised in 929 AT by the Doran clade, in the Gathol,a ship of their own construction. This ship was accelerated by the GAIA boostbeams and decelerated by antimatter-catalysed fusion, also a 'gift' from the Goddess of Earth.
Most Dorans are cyberdwarfs, humans tweaked for low height and reduced body mass; this allows them to construct their spacecraft and habitats on a smaller scale. For many activities, Dorans use large, powerful neurally-controlled exoskeletons (cybersuits) which increase their stature considerably and allow them to live and work in vacuum or a wide range of non-breathable atmospheres for extended periods. They can, however, remove these suits and live independently in standard hu-friendly environments.
