The Saltah'na are an ancient species that was known to have developed the Infinite Gates. In ages past, the Kwa discovered the very secrets of the cosmos, and used them to create the Gates and the Star Chambers which powered and protected them. They used the gates to create a vast interstellar empire. However, their civilization declined rapidly after the formation of the Gates, and they began sealing them up in an effort to ensure that the Gates wouldn't fall into the wrong hands. It was later discovered that the Saltah'na bred the great whuffa worms to protect the Star Chambers and the Gates. The Saltah'na were also believed to be the ancestors of the Blue Desert People. The Saltah'na were bipedal, three-meter tall, cobalt-blue-skinned saurians with telepathic abilities. They also had the ability to run at incredible speeds.
