In 2375, the Varro generational ship experienced heavy problems with their warp engines as a result of the virus.
Luckily, they came across the Voyager, who gladly offered assistance.
Most of the Varro chose to stay together and continue their exodus, but a small number of the sections went their own way.

Physiologically, Varro were humanoid with their only known external difference from Humans being a series of horizontal ridges down the back of their neck and along their spine. When two Varro had intimate relations, they experienced olan'vora – "the shared heart".This made their body chemistries interdependent, causing withdrawal symptoms if the two people separated.The effect got stronger with each coupling, and prolonged separation from their mate could literally be fatal for a Varro.
