Oddly, the one Romulan character I have who plays a major part, Dr. Myrian Anil, is, in a way, neither Romulan nor Rhiannsu. She will eventually become one or the other, but due to being raised in a Federation orphanage she's not familiar with either mindset, and is Romulan in name only.

Both the Romulans and the Rhiannsu will appear in my fics at some point, though.

The term "Rihannsu" comes from a series of books by Diane Duane. In these books, "Rihannsu" is what the Romulans call themselves. It is also the name of the language they speak.

When you dig deeper into the world she has created, there are actually two completely different Romulan societies, the Rihannsu (the noble-born) and the Romlesta (the common people).

I am aware that I know far too much about this, lol. :D
