The "Blues" or Erao r'ru are the perfect foil race. These guys are refugees from something that is chasing them and what is unknown. In Xplorers their ships ply the space lanes trading and looking to avoid trouble but they are often the victims of space pirates looking for easy plunder.
In Stars Without Number the race is often found among adventurers and spacers as wanderers as well as mystics. They also serve aboard space navies in many back water systems.
In the Goblinoid Games Family of games these folks can be found hanging out with mutants and trying to sell wares to a wide variety of post apocalyptic folks as traders and scientists. They will often act as go between for wizards and communities of humans. They also sell their services as mercs to the highest bidders and can be found as pawn brokers. Willing to analyze  ancient technology and devices for the right price.
