Norians (pronounced “No-Ree-Anns”) are elf-like humanoids from another universe. In YE 44, due to devastating war and cataclysm, they fled their home universe through the use of Transuniversal Teleportation Drive technology. They came to the Kagami Galaxy in the SARPiverse to seek out assistance and refuge with their old allies, the Yamatai Star Empire. The Norians had a lasting alliance with the Yamatai Star Empire based on joint force operations to save Ayenee during the Chaos Hive War.
The Arrival of the Norians in the SARPiverse kicked off with a massive rescue and evacuation mission that saw numerous fleets and units of the Star Army of Yamatai and even some other factions come together in Operation Fireplace.1). Their future is in question, but it certainly involves becoming a part of the Yamatai Star Empire to which they are grateful and indebted to for their assistance. Eventually, the norians will have a new homeworld, and a chance to rebuild. At the same time, they are eager and willing to help repay their debt through service, being welcomed to join the Star Army of Yamatai and participate in life in the Yamatai Star Empire and Kikyo Sector.

Here are some important things to consider when making your new character.
Norians can live approximately 1600 years with some individuals reaching even 1700 years of age. For the sake of roleplay, it is generally suggested in creating a character that was born within the time periods explained in the History of the Norian People and Nations. It is even more, preferred within the time period of the Yamataian Calendar from YE 01 until the present.
Some references are:
Norians come in all different personalities, here are some suggested resources:
In the “likes” and “dislikes” sections you can list some of your character's most and least favorite things. Perhaps your Norians has an aversion to certain foods or a passion for a certain type of music. This is up to you.
What would your character like to accomplish in the SARPiverse. Don't be afraid to dream big, there are no wrong answers here.
Norians usually enter the Star Army of Yamatai under a enlistment contract, and then proceed to training and take training courses. Star Army Personnel Command will consider any previous service in pre-Arrival of the Norians and may take into account previous experiences. A great plot to get started in is the Star Army Recruiting & Personnel RP, which exists as an open roleplay run by Wes.
Some information on gear and finances.
As a member of the Star Army of Yamatai, your character will receive a set of Standard Issue Items that they keep as long as they are in the military. A link to the standard issue page will suffice. Here's the wiki code:
* [[stararmy:standard_issue]] * [[stararmy:uniforms:norian_undersuit]]
Using this may actually be better, as the standard issue can change over time as new items are added and old items fall out of use.
Any personal possessions your character has.
All characters start with 3,000 KS or the equivalent. In the roleplay, this is your character's enlistment bonus. If you want to start with additional possessions, their value should be deducted from your starting funds.
Tip: Don't get lost surfing the wiki trying to find stuff to buy! We suggest that you keep the cash and purchase items later, once your character is approved and you're already posting in the roleplay plots.
Feel free to check in with Andrew into some ideas about uses outside of the Star Army of Yamatai. It is preferred though that new Norians player characters start in the Yamatai Star Empire and the Star Army of Yamatai.
