Humanity has changed little in physical appearance though sociologically speaking there are huge differences between the human beings of the early and the late 21st century. Humanity has unified itself under the NEG, has largely abandoned religion, has inured itself to great suffering and the presence of cosmic horrors, and has explored sanity-blasting possibilities such as arcanotech.

After the destruction of the First and Second Arcanotech Wars, the Migou invasion, and the conflicts with the Rapine Storm and the EOD, there are only approximately 2.4 billion human beings left alive, from a population that once numbered almost 9 billion. Every person alive has had at least one relative or friend killed in the wars of the 21st century.
