- "The ones that look like overgrown scaly swamp creatures are called Ghawems. We gotta steer clear of them. They'll be spouting methane gas from their backpacks. Come to thik of it, they've probably already flooded the upper decks with the stuff."
- ―Stevan Makintay after being boarded by Ghawem pirates
The Ghawems were a sentient species of large, scaly beings who breathed methane. When in a methane-poor atmosphere, members of the species employed methane-spouting backpacks to make the air breathable for themselves. The Ghawems had enslaved another species, known as the Myills.
