History Edit

Speaker for the Dead Edit

Gusto and his wife were a part of the original settlers of Lusitania, having immigrated from Baía. Upon their arrival at the new planet, the humans and their livestock and plants were assaulted by a devastating disease native to Lusitania. As Xenobiologists, he and Cida researched and eventually developed a cure to the Descolada. However, this came too late, and he and his wife died from the disease, leaving their daughter Novinha orphaned. After their deaths, the couple was sainted as a pair known as 'Os Venerados' rather quickly after their deaths for miracles credited to them in their own town of Milagre.[1]
