Home Planet: Kortholt
Description: A proud race of humanoid warriors that are strongly dominated by the females. As a protective evolutionary feature, hard, sharp bones protrude from their bodies to protect the more sensitive areas such as the spine and shoulders. They tower above the average human by about two feet.
Because of their dangerous exoskeletons, only males of this species have been able to successfully mate with the females and live to tell the tale, their bodies specifically designed to fit the contours of the female. Because males do not carry the young of such a great race they are considered to be the inferior gender. The males live freely, not as slaves, but hold large ceremonial battles where they must fight to earn the right to mate.
This species is divided up by tribes but each family seems to live a considerable distance away from each other. As far as scholars can tell, an extremely advanced trading route seems to exist to allow the strozzi to live in such a fashion. Though how, exactly, the trade route works remains a mystery.
Strozzi are in favor of the Rebellion but are not thus far actively involved in any of the conflicts that take place outside of their homeworld. As far as they are concerned, theirs is the superior race. If the Imperium wishes to convince them differently, they are welcome to try.
