The energy rider species is composed entirely of energy, living in electromagnetic clusters in open space.

They feed on the life force of material beings by invading and possessing them for a short time. Their first law is, "Don't hurt the body." If an energy rider stays in a body for more than a "taste" or a "sip," the rider is considered to be diseased and another energy rider is dispatched to capture or kill it. Even brief possession by energy riders can give species odd and differing after-effects, including blacking out for about half an hour, and the inability to remember being unconscious, or even waking. Following prolonged possession by a diseased rider, one individual even began to see brief visions of the future. An energy rider can be killed by the energy used in natural processes (i.e. Starburst) in Leviathans.
