Seeds of Rebellion
Togorians are predatory, aggressive nomads and fearless warriors. In the days of the Republic, Togorian pirate fleets were a known menace. The Republic was unsuccessful in quelling this threat, but the new Empire has the drive and the firepower to crush the fleets. During the Dark Times, pirate fleet survivors are likely to seek their fortunes aboard non-Togorian ships and in non-Togorian organizations.
Togorians in a group are led by the largest, most aggressive, and most ruthless individual among them. They have little honor, but prefer fights against others of their king to be face-to-face combat. Males and females have little contact with each other. The males are nomadic, often using domesticated mosgoth flying lizards as mounts. The females live in the cities, tending animals and seeing to the Togorians’ limited technological pursuits.
Personality: Togorian males respect strength above everything else. To that end, they often seek to prove themselves in melee combat against worthy opponents, especially members of other powerful species. Other species mistrust Togorians, for they are treacherous, foul, and temperamental. Togorian females are equally aggressive and vicious, but are much less likely to leave their homeworld.
Physical Description: Togorians are muscular, stand on legs with two knees, and have retractable, razor-sharp claws. Their piercing jade eyes provide them with excellent vision, even in low light. A Togorian’s thick fur is normally jet black or black with orange stripes, but other rare colors such as brown, white, and gold do exist.
:Homeworlds: The temperate world of Togoria, featuring isolated cities among vast savannas, deep canyons, and great, deep forests.
Languages: Togorians speak their own language, plus Basic.
Example Names: Dankin, Dh’rang, H’sishi, Keta, Mezgraf, Mrrov, Muuurgh, Qrrulla, Rowv, Ruukas, Sarrah, Seendar
