The Ferenchi are a disassociated band of aliens operating from Frenshinar, a large stable asteroid on the coreward side of the belt.
Their first contact with humans was with a group of French nationals fleeing British domination of Terra. It was through these refugees the Ferenchi learned to interface with humans and even after 30 years of contact with the Ukp they still retain their heavy French accents and hand gestures. The Ferenchi are traders and live by a code of commerce. Greed to them is not a vice but a virtue.
Beware of Fenenchi bearing gifts.
