Visari were the first species to achieve space-flight, and evidence of thier presence throughout the galaxy can be found amungst the oldest ruins on planets dotting the galaxy. Indeed, the Visari are creddited with gifting space-flight to the majority of species in the galaxy, and thusly Visari culture can be found present in many alien civilizations, such as the Paratian and Amarian.
Ages ago, the planet Ruin was known as the Visari homeworld, and as other species in the galaxy were beginning to take thier first steps into the inter-galactic world, the Visari were building technological marvels and expanding thier empire to untold heights. In fact, the Visari hold the record for both the largest, and oldest, galactic empire to this date. The time between Visari acheiving space-flight and the collapse of the Empire are known to all Visari as 'the golden age'. An age which is by now hundreds of years in the past.
Visari uncontested dominance over the galaxy faded away at around the same time thier galactic empire began to crumble. During the first galactic war, the Visari empire was besieged by the Amarian, a species which they had gifted with space-flight technology (sometime many Visari today consider to be the single greatest mistake in history). At the conclusion of the First Galactic war, the Visari empire was in crumbles. Literally all colony worlds having been conquered or erradicated, and along with the destruction of thier homeworld, the Visari were left as a shattered image of what they once were.
Today, the majority of Visari can be found throughout the galaxy as nomads, mercenaries, or salavges. The only thing which truly bonds the Visari people any longer is the fact that the Visari are a species without a home. However, in the past decade a religious movement known as "New Eden" has swept the Visari populace. The belief preaches that beyond the frontiers of the galaxy, beyond the stars and beyond the void, there is a paradise which all Visari may call home.
Indeed, at the very outskirts of the galaxy there is a planet colonized excusivley by the Visari. Known as Salvation, the planet is literally known only by those who inhabit it. Trecherous asteroid belts, plasma storms, and super massive black holes back the majority of the space surrounding Salvation an impassible hell, however there is a slender portion of space which allows safe passage to and from the space surrounding Salvation. On salvation, the Visari populace prey for thier brethern who have not yet found Salvation, or know of it's existence. They prey that one day these lost souls will find home.
On Salvation, the Visari rebuild thier fleets and replenish thier numbers. They wait for a leader to take command, and reclaim the glory which the Visari were robbed of.
