Singular form of atevi. A race of aliens from CJ Cherryh's Foreigner series. They are humanoids, but much taller, and with black skin and eyes.
They are perhaps some of the best sci-fi aliens I have seen, psychology-wise. They have an obsession with mathematics and felicitous arrangements, among other things, that makes them seem truly alien.
They also like guns.
