The Forestborn Peloran are probably the most ambitious genetic alteration of the Peloran race to remain…Peloran. Others are generally accepted as different races entirely and live in their own communities, but the Forestborn are not like that. They love living a simple life in nature, you see. That earned them a level of acceptance the homeworlds Peloran don’t really give to many others. They look far more exotic than other Peloran, but culturally they’re more integrated with the vast majority of the Peloran race than most other offshoots. Of course they are part plant. Considering how much the Peloran love plants, that makes a certain amount of sense.
