The sturdy rhinoceros like Rshast are in many ways the work horses of the Zulu sector. Whether trading goods, or fighting wars for the highest bidder you will find Rshast serving with strength, honor and professionalism. Thier space marines in particular are in high demand wherever muscle is needed and are considered one of the strongest fighting units in the entire sector. Although officially a neutral species, Rshast blood was spilled on both sides of the Shyedarian Revolution.

Stellar System: Qanuf


Rasa Rignorwry -- Clan started by Defanu Tsoami, means "Angry Warrior" in ancient Rshast.
