A short, scaly, reptilian species, known for their quick reflexes, Aleena hail from the small world of Aleen. Falling along the path of one of the galaxies larger trade routes, the primitive Aleena were discovered by a starship crew who set down on their planet for repairs. Since that initial meeting, the Aleena have embraced their place in the greater galactic community, importing technology and travelling the space lanes in search of adventure and new contests of sport and challenge, a species passion. Typically, Aleena travel in groups, often family clans, an evolutionary response to predation of their kind by large carnivorous beasts on their world. This is also the factor influencing the development of their reknown reflexes.
