They are a nomadic race, with no substantial exports. Thus, the planet has been relatively ignored by traders. The primary visitors to the planet are slavers who come to export the Abyssin themselves. When two tribes of Abyssin meet, they will either enter into a Trade (if water and food are plentiful, gaunts, weapons, or young are exchanged) or a Blooding (a fight to the death for water rights).
The Abyssin have greenish-tan skin and long arms that reach to the ground when they walk. Their hands end in sharp claws. Although Abyssin can live to be over 300 years in age, their ability to regenerate gradually decreases. Those Abyssin who can no longer regenerate themselves usually walk into the desert and die. Those that refuse to die are ritually stoned by younger Abyssin.
