K’Loffai (KUHL ahf aye) are very passionate about everything they do. They pour their all into labor and leisure alike with equal enthusiasm. In addition to being huge, powerful warriors, they also enjoy fine food and drink, as well as the fine arts, and the company of the opposite sex. Despite their great hulking façade, K’Loffai are artists and poets at the soul. As awesome it is to see a one ton K’Loffai in battle, it is equally awesome and stirring to experience a K’Loffai opera. With their uncommonly loud voices, it is hard to ignore a K’Loffai. Notoriously stubborn, once a K’Loffai gets an idea in their head to do something, they are hard to dissuade. Due to the harshness of their homeworld, and the presence of large predators and gruff armored herbivores, all K’Loffai must learn to fight from a young age.
Throughout history, K’Loffai had very little mythology, but found the notion of a supreme being a highly probable concept. They never developed religions, but held a very agnostic view of the possibility of the existence of a god or gods. In 70AE, When the K’Loffai first encountered a race other than their own it was the Humans. After peaceful relations, and exchange of culture, the K’Loffai were even more confused about deific notions. The K’Loffai now seek guidance from the religions of all species, seeking ultimate truth. Today, you can find K’Loffai serving as everything from Catholic priests, to Bykhoru monks, and anything in between.
In 587AE, a conflict began against the Borria. It seemed at first to be more political in nature, with the K’Loffai claiming seven Borria held mining colony worlds as K’loffai ‘holy lands’. The Borrian Genocide Protocols were enacted due to the assumption that any species that would risk all out war over solely religious reasons is unfit to survive. It was soon after this that the K’Loffai allied with the UA in order to fend off the Aquillan allied Borria.
