Daresh are a species of loathsome creatures which have been created as scouts by powerful, ancient alien intelligences dwelling on Calturus. They have been seeded on various worlds and formed their own communities deep in the bowels of the earth or below the habitats of other beings - without knowing their ultimate purpose. Until their masters arrive and take control over the scattered daresh colonies, they breed, infiltrate, and scheme for power for their own sakes, not knowing that their minds have built-in weaknesses their masters will use to command them.
Daresh change drastically during their life cycle, and thus are represented by several entries.
