The Elohsians are a humanoid species native to the planet Eloh.
The Elohsians follow polygamy, with husbands taking at least one bond-wife and four to seven honor-wives. This is because of the fact the Elohsian women live longer than males, whose age expectancy is similar to that of humans. As a result, few males exist on Eloh.
They prefer to live in a state of low technology, as it said in the Scroll of Maj that their world would be destroyed if they progressed. However, after contact with the Terran Federation, a group of young ones attempted to introduce technology into their society. As a result, their government attempted to crack down on what they called the Techrats. Several individuals and their families agreed transport on Terran Federation freighters to escape their society.
