The mri are a fictional alien species in the Faded Sun Trilogy of C. J. Cherryh's Alliance-Union universe. Their culture appears to be drawn upon those of the Apache, Berbers, and Japanese samurai. Their name means simply "the people," and they refer to all other races as "tsi-mri," which literally means not people.
