The geth ("Servant of the People" in Khelish and known by the Second Human Empire as "Children of Gixx'keler Zikkner") are a race of networked artificial intelligences that reside beyond the Perseus Veil. The geth were created by the quarians as laborers and tools of war. When the geth became sentient and began to question their masters, the quarians attempted to exterminate them. The geth won the resulting war, and reduced the quarians to a race of nomads. The Geth joined the Alliance of Nations after the Fall of Rannoch.
