The Ysoki is a playable race in the role playing game 'Starfinder', which was developed by Paizo Inc, the same people responsible for the breakthrough game Pathfinder.

Let's talk a little bit about the Ysoki race and how they appear in the Starfinder world, their qualities, and the kind of names that best suit them. In terms of appearance, the Ysoki resemble humanoid rats. They get to maneuver and maintain balance even in zero gravity thanks to their partially prehensile tails. The Ysokis aren't very tall, with the average Ysoki being somewhere between three to four feet tall. Their smelling prowess is legendary as they are able to smell complex chemicals and identify them in next to no time. Their hands are also incredibly delicate, which help them to work on delicate electronics.

Most Ysokis are good at heart and take great pride in being who they are, even though the larger races' attitude towards them results in the Ysoki being often overlooked. However, their ability to get by happily in the innards of the various spaceships in the 'Starfinder' world makes them one of the most prevalent races in the game.
