|This is the article on the mass exodus from Kharak. If you are looking for the article on the similar Exodus undertaken by the Hiigarans, see The Exile.|
The Exodus was a large emigration of Kushani people enforced by the Taiidan Empire via their attack and destruction of Kharak. The Kharakian Genocide left the Kushan Mothership and her crew with no home, and thus, after rescuing the remaining orbital Cryo Trays loaded with hundreds of thousands of colonists, the only remaining Kushani began their trip towards Hiigara, their homeworld. It soon became a brutal war for survival, as the Kushani were forced to face off with numerous enemy factions in open combat. Despite the overwhelming odds, they managed to overcome their enemies. After many battles, primarily with the Taiidan Empire, they managed to reach Hiigara, less than 550,000 (of Kharak's original 300 million) strong.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The term Exodus is used in the Homeworld: Cataclysm Manual 5 times. The majority of other sources refer to the events of Homeworld simply as the Homeworld War.
- A likely source of the "Exodus" term is the departure of the Israelites from Egypt under Moses, which is also called an "Exodus".
