Nothing ever truly changes. Trends, cultures, languages, rulers... they come and go. But behaviour bred from greed and fear hold human evolution at a standstill. Any kind of progress made is usually destroyed... reset in one way or another. Like a wave, it evolves and it falls again...

Burn, about human evolution

Humans populate the majority of the Kenshi. Human is a Race category which includes Greenlanders and Scorchlanders.

Greenlanders[edit | edit source]

Greenlanders are essentially like real life humans. They don't have many stat bonuses and are the baseline for the game's hunger rate.

Scorchlanders[edit | edit source]

Scorchlanders are humans with glowing eyes. They typically have black or blue-black skin and silver-white hair. They have stat bonuses mostly centered around crafting skills and elusiveness.

History[edit | edit source]

According to bits and pieces of clues displayed throughout the world of Kenshi, ancient Humans created titanic Skeleton beings alongside smaller, more "worker drone"-esque Skeletons before becoming dissatisfied and disgusted with their creations, committing a mass genocide at Obedience which most likely made the holy nation if they weren't like how they are in the game.
