The Eshaar Ashah are a minor race on Eshaar/Taemerlyk (Far Frontier 1826).

Physiology & Environment (Ecology)[edit]

Natives of a exotic atmosphere planet between Zhodani Consulate and a few Imperial client states. They believe that they are part of a planet-wide organism

Adult Eshaarans average 2 meters in length, stand 1.2 meters tall, and mass around 90 kg standard. Their most striking features are the broad mantles running from the ends of their major tentacles to the base of the tail; these may span 2 meters. The membranes serve both as surfaces for chemosynthesis and as gliding wings. In the powerful updrafts and dense atmosphere over the Great Canyons, Eshaarans can stay aloft for 15 minutes. Eleven pairs of jointed, armored legs run from thorax to tail; these are equipped with pincer claws of various sizes. Two pairs of tentacles - one large, one delicate - surround the single, large eye , which is normally deep golden to red In color. Vision is largely in the violet-ultraviolet range.

Two orifices are located on each side of the thorax and are used to vent steam, a metabolic by-product. Modulated release of steam produces the hissing, whistling Eshaaran language, which has been compared to the shriek of leaky power plant steam pipes. An abdominal organ similar to an anemone-flower absorbs sulfuric acid and excretes liquid sulfur.

Eshaarans can produce powerful electric discharges between the tips of their major tentacles. Although certainly a side-product of the being's electro-chemical chemosynthesis, the nature of the discharge ability is not known. The Eshaar Ashah do not hunt and have no natural enemies, so this admirable defensive weapon's original purpose remains a mystery.
