The Abhva (“The Enemy”, “Void Devils”) are the inhabitants of Planet X, which orbits the secondary Mitran sun, Yama. They worship a dark entity known as the Adversary, and are the terror of Janya and Kravyad alike. The eccentric orbit of Yama brings them close enough to engage open warfare every seven to eight centuries, when they cross the void of space to ravage, locust like, among the bountiful worlds of the system’s brighter primary star, Surya.
The Pretya (Hungry Ghosts) are the drone or worker class of these reptilian hive-minded races. These humanoids resemble gaunt and desiccated corpses; with large black eyes, corded muscles, and mottled grayish green skin. Some are augmented with the bizarre necro-tech of their Asuri masters, but for the most part they go without.
Worse yet, the Pretya are partially creatures of dark energy, with different parts of their body phasing in and out of this reality and any given point. To the Janya who can perceive the mystical emanations of the fifth world, the Pretya are cloaked in swirling darkness. This intangibility has historically best been addressed at close range – with melee weapons.
