The Shotophians are a race of humanoid beings living on the planet Palmalaus.

They lived upon the plains and forests of the planet for hundreds of thousands of years before the Doesians began expanding upon their land. Eventually the Doesians took more than the Shotophians were willing to share and they struck back, attacking several main trade routes between the capital city of Does, and many outlying cities. This sparked the Great War between the two races.
