The Urutan-Yensa are a race of bipedal humanoids that have evolved from crustaceans. They dominate the sands of the Plains of Purple Dust and are known as the "Kings of the Sea," and travel the great expanses of the desert on their Giant Yensa steeds. Having a nomadic lifestyle since their evolution, the Urutan-Yensa have never become accustomed to the lifestyle of some of the more civilized races.


Generally found in tribes led by Queens, the Urutan-Yensa are an incredibly territorial race that are known to fight off any outsider before they have a chance to communicate. They are a proud people who find weakness as the ultimate shame, and often see death as the only fitting punishment. One particular instance of this was when a member of a tribe requested help from outsiders to defeat a monster that was know for massacring the Urutan-Yensa. When this group of outsiders defeated the beast, the single Urutan-Yensa was sentenced to death by his tribe's queen.
