Emestice are rather rare and were even during the League Era, few ever knew where their homeworld even was. Those that are seen in the known galaxy are rogues who leave their homeworld and come to the known galaxy. Many were respected during the League of Systems era and worked for the League. A few joined the empire during the civil war. They seemed to have avoided the known galaxy during the reconstruction, but have slowly begun appearing once again.
The Emestice are a humanoid race that have varied colored hard growths covering much of their bodies and providing armoring (moderate DR). They are also known for being highly psionically adept. Many have claws, horns, tails, or other weapons as part of their growths. They are otherwise very human-like.
