In The Worlds In My Head, there exist two elemental races with a common creation myth and an undying enmity: The First Ones and the Silmn. Both humanoid, the First Ones' bodies were a black light-eating metal and you felt rather than saw their features. The Silmn were creatures of exquisite beauty with bodies of crystalline flesh - appearing as normal humans made of translucent frosted glass.
Centuries of war were, of course, inevitable as the races spread across the galaxy and finally met Humanity. There now exists a loose confederation of Humanity allied with the Silmn, Humanity allied with the Nathi, and out in the far galactic rim, the First Ones and their spiderlike network of influence. What the robot Legions of the Spark are up to is as inscrutable as their faces.
Humanity has taken to the stars five thousand years ago. Mother Terra is still thriving, but it is no longer Home. Instead, humanity is spread across as many star systems as there are real-world nations on earth, each with its own histories, traditions, and spiderweb of politics. In general though, they are allied with the Silmn (but not always), fighting the First Ones (but not always) and if you ask ten governments about the Nathi you will get 83 distinct opinions.
