Valang – The Valang are a desert-dwelling people with thick, scaly skin and a thin, whip-like tail. They can stand on two legs or travel much more quickly on four. They are mostly brown in colour, although the tone varies. The Valang trademark is their wide, horrifying grin that stretches across their faces from ear to ear. Many rows of sharp, pointed teeth give them a vicious appearance. Their eyes look like balls of dull wood and a third eye lies on their chins. The Valang have a violent history in Tranthaea that ended with them being exiled by the Dyadem and driving the gru’Esh out of Ta’ar. They are led by Cobarr, the Daku Valang.
Valang Schism – After the Second Battle of Barricade, the Valang collapsed into a Civil War over the issue of re-joining the Tranthaean world or removing themselves from all contact. Unionist and Loyalist armies battled, as did the politicians. Eventually, unable to resolve their differences, the Valang split into two factions. Half rejoined Tranthaea, gaining a seat on the Tranthaean Council. The others retreated into the far western desert.
