The Kalish (don't confuse with the Kaleesh from the Filo and Viau universe) (Second Human Empire: ?) are a Sebaceanoid species, roughly the same proportion body-wise as Humans and Sebaceans, with orange hair and pale skin that is mottled in places in a repeating diamond pattern. The Kalish body is highly efficient — indeed, the average member of the species only needs to eat ten times per cycle. These are food binges in which the Kalish will consume more than a Hynerian; the feasts are followed by a digestion period of increased body temperature. Kalish also have the ability to “shift their gravity centers,” allowing them to walk on walls and ceilings. Their relatively small and light veins and other internal body parts are somehow related to this ability. The Kalish joined the Axis of Empires.
