Potential playable characters can be made either from the crew of The Amherst or from the original settlers that have set up at Ista. None of these can be the characters from the novels and of no relation to these.

So far there aren’t too many constraints on characters, though there can only be so many of each rank type. Feel free to get creative! If it can be reasonably fit into the storyline then it can be done! If you’re stuck feel free to browse the adoptables, there are a few and tend to have built in relations or plot-lines, though anything can be adjusted to suit.
