    gthis species of humanoids was distinguished by their birdlike faces 
and the stiff hair  covering their bodies. They had a slender, prehensile  
tail and a chitinous nose.  The males had drooping moustachios and crests  
at their temples, while the females lacked  moustachios and had            
slicked-back hair in place of the crests. Their mouths were formed  from a 
series of holes, making it appear to be a musical instrument, and the tips 
of  their tails were sky-blue in color. They were known to be hard         
workers, but with a   penchant for thievery and confidence games. The Ryn  
also had a distinct odor, which many  other species found offensive. As a  
people, Ryn were highly superstitious, and had a  number of rituals        
involving eating and bodily fluids. They were considered nomads, and       
those Ryn which were encountered most often were enslaved or being hunted  
down for some  crime. Most xenobiologists were unable to discover the      
homeworld of the Ryn. The Ryn  themselves had forgotten its name and       
location, but their histories showed that they  were native to the Core    
and were driven from their homeworld long ago. Some Ryn  believed that     
they were descended from a civilization of 10,000 musicians who  agreed to 
move to a planet which was bereft of music. Others believed that their     
ancestors were warriors who were planted on other worlds to fend of a      
threat from the Inner Rim. This latter explanation was considered the most 
plausible, since the Ryn language contained a variety of military terms,   
including words for "non-Ryn" and "civilians." A large colony of Ryn       
settled in the Corporate Sector, moving from planet to planet. Some
