Story Factors:
Herd Ships: Many Ithorians come from herd ships, which fly from planet to planet rading goods. Any character from one of these worlds is likely to meet someone that they have met before if adventuring in a civilized portion of the galaxy.

Description:
Ithorians, also known as "hammerhead," are large, graceful creatures from the Ottega star system. They have a long neck, which curls forward and ends in a dome-shaped head.

Ithorians are perhaps the greatest ecologists in the galaxy: they have a technologically advanced society, but have devoted most of their efforts to preserving the natural and pastoral beauty of the home world’s tropical jungles. Ithorians live in great herd cities, which hover above the surface of the planet, and there are many Ithorian herd cities that supply the starlanes, traveling from planet to planet for trade.

Ithorians often find employment as artists, agricultural engineers, ecologists and diplomats. They are a peace loving and a gentle people.
