The Bentusi (Second Human Empire: Euyi'uuikn Viuk'uini) are a race of space-faring technology traders, who helped the Kushan fleet in their quest to find Hiigara. Calling themselves the Unbound, the Bentusi are a very ancient, wise race who do not claim any planet for themselves, instead opting to live exclusively among the stars. It is interesting to note that it would probably be impossible for the Bentusi to even survive outside of their ships, given that they are physically connected to them. The Bentusi are one of the three races to possess far jump cores, along with the Vaygr and Kushan/Hiigarans. The Bentusi joined the Alliance of Nations.
