The Ascendancy belongs to the children of ancient Terra, the humans. Space is their birthright, as survivors in the orbitals of Sol or the colony ships that flung themselves into interstellar void to survive the death of their homeworld. These survivors were from a host of nationalities and backgrounds, and had to cooperate to survive in the thousands of years since. In the Ascendancy, all social distinctions of race and nationality from pre-Fall Terra have been obliterated. What remains is the true nature of humanity - an iron determination to strive, succeed and survive at any cost.
Ascendancy Terrans are the Dominant Species of the Ascendancy. They may purchase Ascendancy Status for 2 character points per rank.
Ascendancy Terrans have 2 locational body hits and a death count of 200. They may purchase Discipline Skills, representing the brutal training and conditioning the Ascendancy applies to its favoured operatives. Ascendancy Terrans also contribute 20% more to their Group Income than their equivalents in other factions, to reflect their greater degree of logistical support and the backing of the Ascendancy's industrial machine.
