Tonight's topic IMT^5U: The Irilitok of LAIR/Grnouf (Provence 2402), about their G5 V stellar primary. Lair A8859B9-E Cx Ga Hi Pr Pz [Vargr], see your local Library Data for more info on the Vargr home world.

The Irilitok are a sub-species, intra-species race (if you prefer), and an ethnicity of the Major Race of Vargr from the same LAIR as other Vargr originate. They are found generally in the Mendan, Amdukan, Arzul, Empty Quarter and Star's End Sectors, but often range into Meshan, Gashikan, Trenchans and Antares Sectors. Irilitok Travellers range even further as they are far more compatible with Humaniti on average, (see Library Data for the history and culture of the Irilitok).
