General History: Parahumans were developed by a consortium of asteroid mining corporations to solve the legal labor shortage they faced in the depths of space. They were given cosmetic genetic modifications to make it seem obvious they weren’t human, looking like a variety of different animal species, increased hemoglobin and myoglobin, connective tissues reinforced against decompression, and the ability to enter torpor. However, they still received support from human activists when they rebelled against their corporate overlords and obtained freedom in the Asteroid Belt. Later expanding out into the galaxy and forming the Federation of Parahuman Species (aka the Para-Imperium).
