A long-lived androgynous, yellow, fungoid, squid-like alien race. They come from the planet Karthis, a water-world, and possessed a highly evolved civilisation millions of years ago. According to them they created the first true hominids, after 700 years of experimenting. Some of the Nioth-Korghai became vampiric (calling themselves “the Ubbo-Sathla”) and these were outlawed by the Nioth race. Their relationship with the Cosmic Octopi is unclear.
