The mixed experimental dwarf cyber-tweak Doran clade set off in an amat-fusion hybrid ship from Toutatis asteroid in 629, setting up a colony at GL 877, before scattering among the red and orange dwarfs of the Inner Sphere.
The Doran Clade were genetically modified to be smaller in size than most humans of their time; few were more than a metre tall, but they tended to use a number of different types of exoskeleton to increase their physical strength and mobility.
Among the systems in the Doran Empire were Dorranok, Secharia and Glim.
Over the next two thousand years, the Doran empire was in conflict with the Hildago Emergent Order, Talmehtian Cruaders and the Conver Ambi in the First and Second Empires wars, and fragmented, as did the Eridanus League, variously joining the NoCoZo or the Solar Dominion. The last remnants (including Dorannok) entered the Terran Federation in 7855.
Hidalgo Emergent Order - Text by Anders Sandberg Hidalgo Emergent Order was a very expansive tweak-cyborg clade/corp that flourished during the late Federation and Expansion ages, setting up asteroid-based societies in the region between Capella and Pollux and becoming an important regional superpower. Using aggressive in vitro techniques they cloned large populations, but were unable to prevent Conver Ambi from gaining a monopoly on vital nanodesign objects, giving them an ever stronger hold on the Order. Eventually most of the Order joined the Conver Ambi, with the exception of a number of habitats that committed collective suicide.
