The Lylmik are the oldest race in the Galaxy, having been shepherded to mental Unity or "coadunation" by the entity known as Atoning Unifex. They created the Galactic Milieu and in turn mentored the Krondaku, Gi, Simbiari, and Poltroyans. The Krondaku are large tentacled invertebrate "monsters", the Gi are feathered hermaphrodites with a well-developed aesthetic sense, the Simbiari are green and slimy, while the Poltroyans are small purple humanoids who most resemble human beings both physically and mentally.
