Draethos are long-lived humanoids from a little known, largely secret world in the Outer Rim. When on their homeworld, Draethos are fierce and unrepentant warriors. They are rules by haughty, spoiled aristocrats more interested in local affairs than galactic politics. The warriors spend their time perfecting their skills and hunting fierce predators on their homeworld of Thosa.
Draethos residing offworld are usually exiles who chose not to become warriors, each for his own reason. Thus, they are highly intelligent and pacifistic. Exiled Draethos become enthralled with learning as much as they can, though they might never practically apply their detailed knowledge of a given subject. They dislike debate - even on subject they know extremely well - because Draethos fear overlooking details or being unable to adequately explain what they have learned. Older Draethos eventually overcome this barrier.
Partly due to their long lives, Draethos society is slow to evolve and relies heavily on tradition. Attitudes developed before the Knights of the Old Republic era remain central to Draethos society thousands of years later. The stability of the Draethos culture caused exiles to have trouble understanding the complex changes in alien societies.
