The Clan

The Clan: As noted under naming conventions the original colonists of New Pallas founded 500 distinct genera that now count individual membership in the millions, and as referenced in Arcology and sharing the wealth these massive extended families tend to form the major social units below government for most Centaurans.  After that genera are divided up into thousands of lineages with their own politics, such as the Argentum lineages who form the House of Silver.

In addition, Tau Ceti’s feudal system was organized around Houses of warrior-aristocrats at first, mimicking the Protectors’ Guilds from Vesta, but as they consolidated and different species conquered one another species became more important than a specific lineage.
