Rachni are race of sapient, insect-like creatures with a [[eusocial]] organization. Rachni hives have a population of workers, warriors, and drones (also called "brood warriors") that follow the direction of a queen. They vary widely in size, with workers smaller than a [[human]] and queens as much as 17 meters in length. Rachni are strong, intelligent, and dangerous adversaries. In particular, they are capable of surviving in many environments that are toxic or otherwise intolerable to [[humanoid]]s.

Rachni queens can transfer memories to their progeny, allowing them to maintain a sophisticated culture and technology base without a written language. Rachni can communicate [[telepathy|telepathically]], a form of contact that they call "singing". This telepathy works with some other species, like asari, that the rachni describe as "receptive".

Rachni queens can transfer memories to their progeny, allowing them to maintain a sophisticated culture and technology base without a written language. Rachni can communicate [[telepathy|telepathically]], a form of contact that they call "singing". This form of communication is described in-universe as an organically evolved form of "quantum entanglement communicator". Rachni telepathy works with some other species, like asari, that the rachni describe as "receptive".
