Location: Wandering the Wastes
Race: Graal’thak (translates to “People” or “True Person” in their language)

Planet of Origin: Tras-Drethkarr (Translates to “Homeworld”)

Height: 7-8 feet

Weight: 250-400 pounds

Appearance: Bipedal, plantigrade. Six digits on each hand, the two exterior digits being opposed to the others. A thumb on each side of the hand, essentially. Long heads, large eyes. No visible noses. Teeth suitable for omnivorous nature.

Characteristics: They use something similar to Jacobson’s organ to smell. Their eyes are capable of seeing infrared and ultraviolet light, giving them excellent night vision, as they evolved from night-predators. They are swift and silent, with only slightly above average muscle mass, though they are much more agile than their appearance would seem to dictate.

History: The Graal’thak race evolved from a reptilian pack-animal native to their homeworld of Tras-Drethkarr (Tras for short). As they evolved and began taking over their planet, the pack mentality became more and more important. Before long, it coalasced into a sort of group consciousness, or hive mind. United as they never could have been before, the True People began a new wave of expansion, dominating their world in a spectacularly short time. Their world conquered, they began to reach for the stars.

Culture: All things are done for the greater glory of the True People. There is minimal interest in art or decoration. All their structures have a distinctly utilitarian feel. Anyone who is sufficiently undisturbed by a race of lizardmen who share a collective consciousness is bound to be disappointed by their lack of aesthetic consideration.

The population is equally at home in cities, mines, caves, or hills, and are adept at adapting to their environments.

Despite their fierce appearance and somewhat disgruntled nature, the Graal’thak are more curious than bloodthirsty, and are not as quick to do battle as many would think, though when the time comes to fight, they can be counted on to fight tooth and nail for the Hive.

man, you gotta realise that thor and bos fell out of the patriot tree (like the ugly tree, but instills patriotism instead of ugly) and hit every branch on the way down.

"Gone now, dispersed by the brutal destruction of this one day, was the belief that the Darkman and his army of the dead were so superior as to be invincible. By attempting to destroy the morale of the Marines, the Darkman had restored it to full vigor. Dia De La Muerto had failed in its objectives."
