The Tha' Roon are a race of serpentine beings from the planet Yauvan.
The Tha' Roon were the dominate species on Yauvan, along with three different other sapient species that they shared it with. For centuries, four distinct races coexisted on the planet in a fragile social order dictated by the omnipotent serpent-like Tha' Roon species.Their powerful empire was built on the allegiance of the mighty Obblinox and the servitude of the plant-like Eaggra.
However their rule did not last when the subjugated races turned upon them. The first were the Obblinox, they revolted against their ancient masters, no longer willing to serve the military purposes of their overlords. Deprived of the military might the Obblinox troops, the Tha' Roon were powerless to preventing the Eaggra insurrection.
Since then Tha' Roon are struggling to keep what remained of their crumbling empire.

In addition being the most intellectually developed of the four races their craniums are quite large and bulbous and possess psionic abilities.
