The Leresai are an alien race characterized by their short stature, large black eyes, and enlarged cranium, the Leresai were native to the planet Riflor. Their skulls were punctuated by a short, thick horn which protruded from the center of their forehead. Their ears were short and pointed, and grew close to the skull. Despite the inhospitable nature of Riflor's environment, the Leresai managed to evolve and grow as a species and as a civilization. Their large eyes allowed them to see in the murky light. Riflor's constant tectonic activity instilled a sense of skepticism and pessimism, as the Leresai cities were continually being rebuilt after natural disasters. A herbivorous race, the Leresai were known to become violently ill should they consume any form of animal protein. Their technology mirrored that found in much of the galaxy, although they tended to build it on a smaller, more transportable scale. The basic tenet of Leresai society was simple: plan for the worst, control all possible variables, and survive. As part of galactic society, the skeptical and control-oriented Leresai temperament led many of them into bureaucratic careers with large corporations or on the Council of Earth.
