Cloedar are centauroids that somewhat resemble the Terran brontosaurous, but mass little more than humans. They have four legs ending in stumpy feet, two small arms, long thick tails, and long snakeing necks. The head is lizard like, but with a large brain case and an omnivore’s teeth in their wide mouths. Their skin is covered in fine smooth scales that shade frim a foggy blue/gray, or tawney golden brown, or grassy greens depending on their ethnic group. Eyes are green, gold, or blue with horizontaly slitted pupils.
The cloedar have been Alliance members for over eighteen hundred years. They were among the first wave of new species encountered and joined in the early years of Alliance expansion.
The cloedor sphere is divided up into numerous small nations of various ploitical structures that never the less act as sort of “vassal states” to the central government. Interestingly this central government is not fixed and once every twenty five standard years it must move its offices to a new host nation.
