Short, furry humanoids with faces resembling a cross between a Terran rat and dog.
Ongdurans are agressive and excitable as a species.
They were first introduced to the galactic community over five hundred years ago when their first STL exploration sleeper ship arrived at a driedna trade world.
Ongdurans never achieved a unified world government. To this day their home system is a patchwork of highly competitive and confrontational factions rife with various scales of hostility from bitter debates to espionage to frequent small scale wars.
Over the centuries many ongdurans have left their home system to persue either quiet lives on more stable worlds or adventure and opertunity across the galaxy.
Ongdurans tend to have dificulty with laws and regulations beyond those of the family and clan. For this reason many of them find themselves drawn to less seemly professions in the galaxy such as merceneries, smugglers, bounty hunters, theives, thugs, and pirates.
