Humanoid in appearance, Suliban are hairless and have pale yellow skin covered with small bumps, making Suliban resemble an osage-orange.

Sometime in the 1800s, the Suliban homeworld was destroyed and its survivors spread throughout space, many settling on Tandaran colonies. By the 2150s, the Cabal was prominent, while ‘ordinary’ Suliban were nomads. The Cabal received orders – and, occasionally, advanced technology and genetic engineering – from a mysterious humanoid figure who communicated to them from centuries in the future. This ‘Future Guy’ had an agenda which he never revealed to anyone, not even Silik. Ordinary Suliban attempt to distance themselves from the Cabal whenever possible, as the Cabal’s actions caused all Suliban to be feared and persecuted (and the Cabal was fond of conscripting normal Suliban into its ranks without consent); only a small fraction of the Suliban population were actually members of the Cabal.

Doctors have noted – after dissecting a dead Suliban – that the alien was ‘the recipient of some very sophisticated genetic engineering’ such as modifications to the ‘alveoli clusters’, ‘subcutaneous pigment sacs’, ‘biomimetic garments’, and, his favorite, ‘compound retinas’.
