Githzerai are a people hailing from the plane of Limbo. The plane is chaotic, unstable, and wild, and within that environment, the githzerai have built themselves a solid, lasting society. With a history of enslavement, the githzerai hold ancient grudges against their slavers, the illithids, and their once-kindred, the githyanki. They seek to put the past behind them and to realize the freedom of each individual githzerai, which is to realize the freedom of the whole race.
