The Thelvon are a race from the planet Thel. Individual Thelvon were short in stature, with needle-sharp teeth, steel-grey skin, large dark eyes, and protruding jaws. They were nearly wiped out when two starships battled over the surface of their homeworld of Thel. One of the ships was destroyed, and plummeted to the ground, releasing noxious chemicals and rendering much of the planet uninhabitable. They respected honor above all else. Thelvon society was clan-based, revolving around the dukha, or community building, at the center of each village.
