The Thrakallan are methane-breathing insectoids. They communicate in a series of chirps and whistles. Thrakallans evolved on the upper middle atmosphere of a gas giant, gradually developing civilization atop floating islands of nyan. Although living on a gas giant, the Thrakallans learned mine-fishing to procure metals from the creatures living on the heavy, mineral-rich layers below. Whether the Thrakallans developed spacefaring capabilities on their own is unknown. The most reliable sources indicate that the Thrakallans were contacted by a now-extinct race and it is from them that the Thrakallans acquired their small trading fleet.
Today, Thrakallans are known for their shrewd business sense. Quite a few are also heads of extensive criminal organizations.
