Galactic 4th Edition
Flying in and out of the Elemental Systems, the Githzerai (gěth-zār-ī) trade with nearby systems, and escape into the Elemental Systems should the Narken attempt to overtake them. Currently they are close friends with the Sylvin United Republic.
The Githzerai were once part of an ancient race called the Gith, a race just slightly younger than the Angels. They were one of the first races created in the greater galaxy just before the Dawn War. During the war, the race was split in two, half working with the gods and the other half for the Primordials. The original Gith home world is lost to the ages.
As time passed, the Githzerai eventually broke free of their masters’ grasp and took to the Elemental Systems in hastily made vessels.
