The Okaarans are one of the two oldest races in the Vegan star-system, whose civilization was based on peace and the cherishing of life. Their society was shattered by the arrival of the Psions, who abduced and experimented on one of their citizens, X'Hal. Soon the Okaarans were set against each other by X'Hal's evil son, who manipulated them into numerous civil wars. The end result was a nuclear holocaust that decimated the planet. The few Okaarans to survive were those that built shelters deep in the ground. Radiation changed the species into their current blue-skinned bestial form. These Warlords of Okaara studied and perfected the arts of combat, but vowed to never again wage war. They captured X'Hal and kept her a prisoner for millennia, eventually coming to worship her as a goddess.As civilization spread through the Vegan star-system the Okaarans sent emissaries, often spreading the religion of X'Hal. Okaara became known as a place of learning, both in combat arts and academic studies. When the Citadel rose in power, numerous rebels used Okaara as a training grounds.
