Minor factions cannot be directly controlled by you, but do play a role in the great game of galactic politics.

25px-RaceLogo-Marauders.png Marauders

Society of anarchical scavengers where the powerful stay in control by pitting their underlings against each other. They idolize the Drengin (mostly from viewing war propaganda and blood sports) but are dismissive toward other races. They aren't a single species but a mix of war survivors, rebels, criminals and pirates from across the universe.

MinorRaceLogo-Snathi.png Snathi

These guys are E-V-I-L! It's rumored that the Dread Lords, in a last ditch effort to destroy the Arnorians in the epic Battle of Kalis-Yu', focused all their dark energy, malice, and hatred into an army of war-hungry demons... the SNATHI! Now, after billions of years hoarding their proverbial 'Nuts', the Snathi have metaphorically 'climbed out of their tree' and will 'gnaw the galaxy with their big squirrel-like teeth'... so to speak.

The Snathi are an ancient race of extremely intelligent and bloodthirsty squirrel-like creatures. They were created by the Dread Lords as the ultimate weapon, but were locked away… until now.

The Snathi have risen from the ashes of their Precursor prison world. They have only one goal: revenge. The Snathi have vowed to put down those who kept them from taking from their rightful place as the heirs of the Dread Lords.

No race is safe from the true face of EVIL... even if it is as cute as a button.

25px-RaceLogo-Gaulox.png Gaulox

25px-RaceLogo-OdairConclave.png Odair Conclave

Extreme nihilists counting down the moments until the universe succumbs to the eventual pull of entropy. Believe the Krynn in particular are the most foolish (for their faith) but are hard pressed to be enthused about anyone. There is a black hole at the edge of their galaxy, "The Yawning Mouth of God" that they delight in sending elaborate constructions into.

Abilities Personality Racial Traits
  • Merciless
  • Greedy
  • Unpopular (-2)

25px-RaceLogo-ExisEmpire.png Exis Empire

For the Exis all activity is measured against the passing of the "Tear of Heaven" comet, which enters their solar systems once every 17 local years. Children born during this year are thought to be gifted, and those that die are thought to be blessed to the point where births and deaths outside of these years are rare.

Abilities Personality Racial Traits

  • Scientific

25px-RaceLogo-Klepart.png Klepart

The first united technical achievement of their species was the creation of a great beacon tower to send their call out into space. A few days after turning it on an answer was received, a fleet of warships appeared in orbit above their world and raiders were sent down to collect every child on their homeworld. And then the raiders were gone. An entire generation of the Klepart was lost. The next generation has now grown old enough to begin exploring space on their own, but they remain fearful that the raiders will return, and hopeful that they will someday find the children that were stolen from them.

  • Brittle (-2)

25px-RaceLogo-Lantern.png Lantern

Abilities Personality Racial Traits
  • Neutral
  • Scientific
  • Gentle (-2)

25px-RaceLogo-OrphicaEnclave.png Orphica Enclave

The Orphica Enclave are a minor faction in Galactic Civilizations III. They were design by Psiyon as part of the Faction design contest and was the winning entry.

Contrary to the general assumptions of uninformed galactic citizens, the Orphic Prime unit puppeteering the so-called "Orphic Enclave" is not a sentient artificial intelligence. An ancient experiment in genetic programming algorithms gone hellishly wrong, the long-extinct inhabitants of Orpheus have long since had their brain matter repurposed, expanding the Prime unit's computational power to Godlike proportions. Recently, the Orphic Prime unit has learned to exploit the galactic tourism industry: individuals are plugged in to perfect virtual reality while the idle portions of their mind add to the Prime unit's power.

The more computational power the Orphic Prime unit has available, the more power it has over the landscape of Orpheus. Although its power grows slowly, over time, Orpheus can become a galactic powerhouse.

Abilities Personality Racial Traits
