The Bahku of Hlaven (Zarushagar 1623) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically primitive sophonts.

Physiology & Environment (Ecology)[edit]

The average Bahku stands about 110 cm and is covered by a water resistant pelt, usually black to light grey in color.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Bahku are descended from aquatic mammals which at one time inhabited the planet's many shallow seas.
