Upeo wa Macho, also just called Upeo for short, is a Psi Order as well as an interplanetary non-profit organization, focusing on space exploration and emergency action. Originally based in Nigeria, now located on the massive orbital Amani Station, tethered to its homeland on Earth. Specialize in Teleportation.
While exploring space, the Upeo came across a group of humans claiming to be from a world named Eden. Eden was apparently ruled over by a group of Aberrants (who called themselves novas), who actually appeared to be mostly human and rather benevolent. They had nothing but humanity’s best interests in mind.
When Atwan disclosed this discovery to the rest of the proxies, they made noises about how the Upeo were now collaborating with Aberrants, were allowed too much free rein, and needed to be under the other orders’ strict control.
Unfortunately, their planned invasion of the Upeo spaceport coincided with The Colony’s attack on the Esperanza Station orbital colony. Atwan thought the calls for help were a ruse to trick her order into getting trapped, and the order as a whole left for Ruan’s World.
The Upeo are organized as a sort of trade guild, ferrying people and materials from place to place and world to world.
