Large, slow, and brilliant, the Balorim are the leviathans of space, the second-ranking power in the galaxy next to the Twis'rin, the primary victors of the First Galactic War, and a species on the ascendancy. They are pompous, difficult, deliberate, and often socially unpleasant. They are also cunning, arrogant, and dangerous.
