Known as the Rose Queen, O'Rourke is one of the two co-rulers of the Daughters of Gaia and the head of the Gaian religious hierarchy. As such, she is often seen as the avatar of terraforming itself, an instantly recognizable symbol of everything the Gaians believe and are working to accomplish.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

When you assign the epic governor Rebecca Freyja O'Rourke to a city, facilities in that city that increase your world's oxygen levels will increase oxygen levels even more.

Secondly, facilities in that city that produce biomass, such as the Coral Reef, will produce more biomass.

Thirdly, that city's population will consume less biomass. If you are playing with Biospheres enabled, population does not consume biomass anyways, so this effect will not do anything.

This governor's power booster ability only affects Oxygen Growth and Biomass Growth, not Biomass Consumption, since Biomass Consumption cannot be boosted.

If you are playing with the Biospheres function enabled, instead of the biomass function, then the Biomass Growth and Biomass Consumption effects that Rebecca Freyja O'Rourke has will not actually do anything. On Beginner mode, the biomass effect will do its job, but biomass consumption is not a feature on Beginner mode, so this effect won't do anything.

VI 91 +80% Oxygen Growth +80% Biomass Growth -30% Biomass Consumption
VII 136 +100% Oxygen Growth +100% Biomass Growth -35% Biomass Consumption
VIII 196 +120% Oxygen Growth +120% Biomass Growth -40% Biomass Consumption
IX 271 +140% Oxygen Growth +140% Biomass Growth -45% Biomass Consumption

Lore[edit | edit source]

Rebecca Freyja O'Rourke Lore.png

From TerraGenesis' instagram account.

Rebecca Freyja O'Rourke was born, like all Gaians of her generation, in shelters beneath the suffocating clouds of Venus. Ever since the Gaian Revolution more than a century before, her people had huddled together on their hellish rock, presumed dead by the rest of the solar system and slowly developing their radical new society in isolation.

⁣Originally interested in becoming a painter, O'Rourke had a spiritual awakening on a mission to one of the outlying garden domes on Aphrodite Terra. In a moment of crystalline clarity while working in the greenhouses she perceived the interconnectedness of life as a singular and profound experience, a "green wave" spreading out from each individual seed into the infinite universe beyond. By the time she returned to the Gaian capital city of Ishtar she had resolved that she would make her mark in the religious Sisterhood, spreading the Gaian gospel of Veriditas.

⁣It was around that time that she met her greatest ally and future husband, Zhou Xi Wang-mu Lee. A direct descendant of the legendary Gaian founder Eleanor Lee, Admiral Lee was a rising star in the Gaian military during a critical moment: after more than a century hiding beneath the clouds of Venus, the Gaians were preparing to launch a powerful fleet and unveil themselves to the rest of humanity in an event called the Blossoming. Their marriage formed a power-couple that would reshape Gaian history forever: Rebecca the heart and soul of a new religion in bloom, Zhou the clenched fist of an empire on the rise.

⁣Several years later, on the same day that Zhou's fleet first began broadcasting their presence to the solar system, Rebecca gave birth to their first child: a daughter named Alana.

⁣After the Blossoming, Rebecca was elected as the new Rose Queen, one of two co-queens of the Gaian nation. From this new position, she has begun to execute the vision that came to her all those years ago in the greenhouse: to spread Veriditas throughout the cosmos, a green wave that would see life blossoming on every planet, and a Gaian empire at the vanguard of humanity's efforts from that day forward.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

She is the wife of Zhou Xi Wang-mu Lee and the mother of Alana Lee.

She was part of The First Seed live event.
