Of the Tau society, the Fio (Earth) Caste is the most intelligent and creative. They are their race’s engineers and builders, it’s their job to think about how to advance their race to survive the test of time and warfare. Because of the way the Tau are brought up, it is not often that any of them decide that maybe the Ethereal Caste isn’t the best group of leaders. They had their purpose in history, but maybe they need to think of the Greater Good in much broader terms. And as such, a small group of like minded Tau took a ship and left the Empire. They named themselves the Or’es Mesme, meaning ‘powerful combination’, after their ideals to work with any race that wishes to.
After sailing for some time, encountering many different races, the Or’es Mesme decided that they needed a place to settle for good. They had been at void for many centuries, farther from the Empire than many Tau have ever traveled. It was in the heart of the Koronus Expanse that they found themselves and it was here they wanted to settle. The Imperium was willing to work out negotiations. In exchange for technological aid, taxes, and open trade rights they would recieve land, supplies, and protection as allies of the Imperium. To show their good faith towards their new allies, the Or’es Mesme renamed themselves the Or’es Collective, adopting a Gothic word to show their thanks.
The Or’es Collective home system is system name here.
The planet is run by a parliamentary committee, each party led by a member of each caste and represented in meetings by their lead Water Caste member. To protect the Imperium’s interests, there is a party of Imperial Ambassadors present as well.
