The Lem are a red-skinned sentient race that populate the galaxy.
The Lem have many reptilian features, including a red scaled skin and a serpentine tail. They also don't have a visible mouth, and are apparently not capable of speech. Some Lem like Krugarr are capable in the art of the Eldritch Magic, and use these abilities to communicate non-verbally with other sentient beings.
- In the comics, the Lem are one of the oldest sentient species in the Milky Way Galaxy, and one of the founding members of the Charter, a cosmic organization that has the duty of maintaining peace in the Galaxy.
