History

The first peoples of the North lived there since time immemorial. People from across the sea arrived at different times throughout history, most notably in the year 1497. Since then the North has been a mosaic of people from hundreds of nations on Earth and it is this nature that has crafted our unique Northern identity.

In an effort to expand the North’s influence, it’s government helped fund the fledgling Northfield Corporation, now referred to as simply Northfield, to establish a corporate base and conduct business in some of the further reaches of the universe.

Northfield has now become an important corporation, based from the chilly heights of microTech, conducting operations in its three main divisions: Security, Medical and Industrial (trade, mining, transportation). Originally a crown corporation Northfield has since become a private business, that while maintaining its historical connection to the North, is no longer owned by the government.

As previous inhabitants of the North on Earth we prefer living in the frigid regions of the galaxy, partially because it provides some natural protection from less hardy people, but also because it reminds us of home.

To survive the Northern winter, one needs a body of brass, eyes of glass, and blood made of brandy.
— Louis Armand de Lom d’Arce Lahontan
