The Penqu were an ethnic group of humans on Aphrodite. They formed one half of the planet’s centuries-long civil conflict. The Penqu were descendants of workers helping to build out Tian‘s infrastructure during its colonization. Unable to obtain land claims on Tian or Ares, and believing Demeter to be uninhabitable, they traveled to nearby Aphrodite, unaware that the nation of India had already claimed the planet and sent a sleeper ship with settlers from that country’s Kolkata region. Penqu were largely Chinese, Vietnamese, Australian, and Indonesian, with a few Americans, Scottish, Canadians, and Japanese in the mix.
