The Hodrian are an alien species from the Titan AE Universe.
Hodrians believe that each person exists only so long as his name is remembered. So they keep track of every member of their race who has ever lived, one name sealed inside a memory sphere. Hodrians are an old race, they've filled their own planet with those memory spheres, piling them in wells and canyons and landfills until now they've had to rent storage containers all over Fauldro just to hold the names of all their people.
