Vaulters in combat

The Vaulters are a playable faction in Endless Space: Disharmony and Endless Legend. Technological savants, the Vaulters are a human civilization who emerged from Auriga's underground warrens and have dedicated themselves to repairing the great machinery of the Endless.[1]

Background Edit

An ancient faction, the Vaulters have suffered a number of major setbacks in trying to establish a permanent home for themselves. Though characterized as restless wanderers, they are in fact a proud and adaptable race, seeking a system that they can finally call 'home.' Their centuries of travel and tinkering have made them skilled at both science and warfare, though their greatest military strength is in defense.

The Vaulters have an old tradition of appointing female leaders, and their trust in this tradition has been confirmed by the faction's uncanny ability to escape, survive, and live to fight another day. Once based on the planet Auriga, they left the planet when their predictions indicated potentially cataclysmic geo-atmospheric problems. Their attempts to colonize elsewhere have only had brief success, and the notion of a permanent base has gained an almost mythical status.

In recent times, one Vaulter clan, the Zolyas, rediscovered the location of Auriga and sought to make it their new homeworld after being evicted from a tundra planet by pirates.

Traits Edit
