A race of nocturnal insectivores with pointy ears. They sleep in hammock-like structures. They have a three-strike justice system in which criminals are killed after their third conviction. They naturally produce a chemical that can be used to increase the life-span of other races. Because of this, other races have repeatedly attempted to invade their world. Some of these attempts have been successful; the Esholites enslaved their race for over two hundred years before being overthrown.
