There are many Races in Kenshi, including races for animal characters. Animal races are not listed on this page.

Playable RacesEdit

These races can be selected during the start of the game. Some Game Starts have further restrictions on which races can be chosen, but many allow players to choose from all seven options on this list.

Players cannot choose these races at the start of a game, but members of these races can become Playable Characters in certain circumstances.


Unplayable RacesEdit

These races are used for characters which cannot be recruited. As such, they require Modding to be used as a player character.
