The Zhariz are a silicon-based species native to the planet Akakz. The Zhariz have 0.4 meter long diamond-shaped bodies with an X-pattern on the top and bottom, over/under which its limbs rest when not in use. The Zhariz are able to survive at lead-melting temperatures exceeding 300° Celsius, but as a result cannot survive on any planet except for greenhouse worlds without protective suits.

The Zhariz almost exclusively live within the United Kyekna Monarchies, making use of the greenhouse worlds of the civilization, after the Zhariz joined the UKM under mutual threat from the CHKC-27 AIs.
