|Affiliation:||First Ones, Kai Rue (myth)|
Many years ago the Oralian sector and the space now controlled by the Kai Imperium, used to be the domain of a species many believed were called the Oralians. Supposedly they lived on a planet called Oral. It was said that the Oralians, themselves, were some sort of super being, with "magical" and telepathic powers. The legend goes that something terrible happened on Oral that devastated the planet. It was a massive tragedy of some natural occurrence, and the planet was completely destroyed. Some believe that the Great Barrier Rift is made up of the remaining pieces of the planet Oral. Some also believe that the Kai Rue, or pure blood Kai, are descendants of the Oralians, though most consider this to be apocryphal. ("The Bonding")
The only real evidence of the Oralians comes from the Oppressors. Their technology and science appeared to have been developed from the technology left behind by a powerful species, whom many call the First Ones. There are those who believe that the First Ones and the Oralians are one and the same.
