The Rakirians were a race native to the planet Rakrir. The average Rakririan was an insectoid creature with a short, segmented body. The body was supported by five pairs of limbs, although a Rakririan could stand by using six limbs as legs, and the other four as arms. Rakririans had two eyestalks for vision, and a cantilevered vocal organ in their midsection. The eyestalks were constantly in motion, giving the impression of nervousness. Very few Rakririans left their homeworld, believing that other worlds were not refined to their standards.
