Members of the #Tognath species have genetic markers indicating a distant relationship to the #KelDor and #Gand . Like these other species, they are forced to wear breathing apparatuses to process oxygen atmospheres when off their home planet, Yar Togna. Their compound eyes also require artificial lenses to better process the spectrum, and their hearing and sense of balance is better maintained with cybernetic enhancers fitted into recesses on their scalps. This device may look uncomfortable but Tognath are immune to most pain due to a primitive nervous system. Tognath have a unique appearance due to their insectoid and mammalian traits which gives them both an endo and exoskeleton. A tell of their insectoid ancestry is Tognath hatch from eggs that are nurtured in a suspension jelly. While in the jelly it is not uncommon for two or more eggs (not necessarily from the same parents) to graft to one another, when this occurs an unbreakable, lifelong bond is created between the eggmates. Such is the case of #Benthic and #Edrio#TwoTubes , most consider the pair to be brothers but is not necessarily accurate. It is also believed that eggmates share a rudimentary telepathy between one another. The homeworld of the Tognath, Yar Togna, was conquered by the #Empire resulting in a mass exodus of its people. Many of these refugees were exploited by criminal syndicates like #CrimsonDawn . Those with a desire for revenge, became mercenaries and warriors looking to strike back against the Empire in such groups as Saw Gerrera’s Partisans and the #CloudRiders . Those who feel no pain make for excellent and effective soldiers.
