The Garenor are a large, reptilian species. Sociable creatures, they possessed an incredible devotion to any group of which they felt a part. Their crests could change color to reflect their moods. The Garenor language was made of loud, low-frequency noises that they could use to communicate across distances of several kilometers. To compensate for poor eyesight, Garenor had an acute sense of smell. They also tended to possess a formidable knowledge of anatomy, especially nerves, muscles and bone structures, making them dangerous unarmed combatants and skilled warriors, capable of defeating most opponents.
