The Pashvi were a race of well-muscled, avian humanoids native to a planet of the same name that was located on the edge of Wild Space, bordering on the fringes of the Outer Rim Territories. Their homeworld was distinguished by the rocky pillars that were scattered across the landscape. The tops of these pillars provided certain plants to obtain more sunlight, and these plants produced some of the most nutritious produce consumed by the Pashvi. However, the tops of the pillars were also the home of a species of predatory avian creature. This led to the Pashvi developing a distanced emotional state among themselves and other things of value, as they were both drawn to and afraid of their primary source of food. This social distinction was obvious in their artwork.
