The Mawasi are a humanoid species from the world of Mellos Prime and the primary species of the Mawasi Empire. They made contact with the Terran Republic in the mid-23rd century and began trade agreements with them. The Mawasi allied themselves with the Terran Republic and the Nihydron Star Republic during the Great Galactic War in the mid 27th century.
