 **Void Walker** is an all-encompassing term for all denizens of Sol. The people, fauna, and foreign creatures that have acclimated to the Void are considered to be Void Walkers, however there are debates whether the latter group should be given another term for record-keeping. Unofficially,​ they are called the "​Acclimated"​ or "​Acclimates"​ both by those in the professional fields and the general public. ​ **Void Walker** is an all-encompassing term for all denizens of Sol.

-Sentient ​Acclimates are not treated any differently by the majority, though they can take advantage of their label as they are often seen as exotic. Acclimated flora are also seen as luxury items, however great care must be taken when introducing these as they may either die or exhibit mutations that may prove deadly when the proper procedure isn't followed. For Sentient ​Acclimates, they must be introduced slowly as they suffer the same problems as Acclimated flora.+Sapient ​Acclimates are not treated any differently by the majority, though they can take advantage of their label as they are often seen as exotic.

 The dread of being trapped was lost on the majority, who found purpose in what felt right in their hearts, but those who craved a way to return home continued to tinker with the magic that brought them here. The dread of being trapped was lost on the majority, who found purpose in what felt right in their hearts, but those who craved a way to return home continued to tinker with the magic that brought them here.
  
-A couple of generations passed, and scholars have found how their new home worked. The first generation of Void Walkers have indeed tapped into the Heart of Styrtan, and the properties of its system reflected in their new world. The effect this had on Styrtan however still remains a mystery. Just like the Heart of Styrtan, the Void connects everything, but how it does it is different. It takes aspects of a person'​s spirit and implant part of the Void to fill the hole it created, but it isn't perfect, leading to the craving to find purpose each sentient ​creature in the Void feels.+A couple of generations passed, and scholars have found how their new home worked.

 While it seems harsh, this ends up being a great guide for Void Walkers, and has been the driving force of all the innovations,​ culture, magitechnology,​ and social bonds found in Sol. However, personal rights still remains as a top priority as there had been many instances of murders happening due to a person'​s inclination. In these cases, execution had always been the answer to the problem, but this method slowly fell out of practice when it was found that if the person was willing, they could reset their inclinations to something less harmful through a type of meditation that opens them to a more intimate connection with the Void, where they discard the Void's gift and allow another to fill the hole. While it seems harsh, this ends up being a great guide for Void Walkers, and has been the driving force of all the innovations,​ culture, magitechnology,​ and social bonds found in Sol.
