The Yysanti (singular Yysant) are one of the many races which were subjugated by the Orgoks between 24370 and 24990. Similar to the Gorrians in many respects, it has been theorized that the two races are indeed related through some unknown prehistoric process. It is believed that there were starfaring races even before the Ancients, and it is thought that they may have dispersed the ancestors of the Yysanti and Gorrians.

Yysanti are capable of interbreeding with Gorrians, though this rarely occurs due to social mores. The result of this coupling is referred to as an Yysian, and they generally resemble their Yysanti parent more than their Gorrian one.

Organization & Culture
Physiologically, Yysanti and Gorrians are very similar, though the Yysanti have not developed as tough a hide, as the climate of their homeworld is not as harsh as that of Gorria. The myriad dangers on their jungle homeworld have, however, served to make the Yysanti a quick and perceptive people, able to spot danger before it arrives and to escape quickly if surprised. Nonetheless, like the Gorrians, they are a frail race, unable to take the punishment that an Orgok, or even a Human, could normally withstand. The most obvious physical difference is the presence of a second leg joint, which allows the Yysians to jump incredible heights: the average Yysian has a vertical jump of 2m and can leap nearly 35m if allowed a running start.

The Yysanti are a very social race, able to adapt to nearly any social or cultural context with little difficulty. This has been their saving grace, as their race is no longer centralized on any homeworld. Rebellion toward the end of the Orgok occupation ended with the relocation or extermination of much of the population. Those left on the planet were killed when the surface was fusion bombed prior to the Orgok withdrawal.

Now the Yysanti live mainly in Gorrian territory. They are one of the few non-Gorrian races who are able to gain citizen ship, and they are generally treated as equals by most Gorrians. Despite this acceptance, the Yysanti have been lobbying within the government to be granted a new system to call their home. Though little progress has been made thus far, hopes are still high within the Yysanti population that they will soon be reunited.
