Defel are an alien species that appear as large, red-eyed shadows under most lighting conditions. This has given rise to their common name: wraiths. Under ultraviolet light, Defels appear as stocky, fur covered bipeds with protruding snouts and long, clawed, triple jointed fingers. They stand about 1.3 meters tall, with shoulders as wide as
- 2 meters across. This species lives in underground cities on the
planet Af'El, where most inhabitants make their living through mining and metallurgy. In the galaxy at large, Defel often find employment as hired muscle, spies, and assassins due to their shadowy forms.
