The Risians (occasionally Risans) were a humanoid race from the planet Risa. The Risan language was not spoken by many non-Risians, as most visitors did not bother to learn it. Risians were extremely close to Humans in appearance, but do have a small mark on their forehead as well as a different internal biology, which rendered Human treatment at Risian hospitals difficult during the 2150s.

The "Festival of the Moon", or Lohlunat, was a very popular celebration among the Risian people, celebrated at the Suraya Bay. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights") The mysterious sexual practice of jamaharon was considered extremely pleasant – wanting it was indicated with a statue called Horga'hn, which became a symbol of the culture on the planet.

A Risian woman was present at Morn's memorial in 2374. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
