The spirelings are a peculiar breed of Tarsins that found themselves trapped in the highest reaches of the orbital spires during the Beacon Cataclysm. For over a thousand years they lived up there, adapting to low gravity, and eventually, lower atmospheric pressure, as limited maintenance took its toll. There were a dozen spireling communities that survived across Coalition territory to meet the reconquest, and it was the spirelings of Tarsis who negotiated a treaty with the first Emperor to answer to only him and be left in peace to run their spires as they saw fit. Taiûkǔrǔ was eventually given to them as an adopted homeworld, though it is not heavily inhabited due to spireling colonies being requested for every new spire set up in the long years since the beginning of the Empire.
