The most populous Elipskatharid race, the Andukar’s genealogy is muddy at best. It is thought that the term ‘Andukar’ is a corruption of the Qarqosaqum word ‘Etusu’iqar’ (lit. far-side resident), a common colloquialism for residents of the slums outside the walls of a city-state. Modern Andukar have since diverged from the Qarqotep, developing a duller, sandy-colored carapace and many small plant-like growths across the spinal plates and face. Most Andukar reside in and around the ruins of the Qarqol, scavenging technology and resources. This has earned the Andukar a reputation as unscrupulous black marketeers.
