Long ago, the Askari lived freely in the vast oceans of Acrys, able to swim underwater for long periods of time in search of food and use the few islands it has for shelter and warmth. Much has changed since those early days. With new races arriving on the planet Askari are less accumstomed to their waters due to the large presence of pirates who patrol the seas, but still are known to be strong swimmers.
The askari are a very elegant race, streamlined with their great swimming abilities. They are peaceful but when challenged usually leave their enemies begging for mercy. Although usually the weaker in a battle on land, they make up for it with great dexterity and resilience. They are probably the bravest of any creature that you may encounter, and never see death as an option, except for for their opponent.
