In eons past, the mind flayers enslaved entire races, including the human forerunners of the githzerai. Centuries of captivity bred hatred, nurtured resolve, and finally instilled psionic powers into these slaves.
Githyanki average more than 6 feet tall and weigh about 160 pounds, and tend to dress in drab, unadorned clothing. As a rule, githzerai are close-mouthed,keep their own counsel, and trust few outside their own kind. They dwell on the plane of Limbo, secure in the protection of their hidden monasteries.
