The charoni resemble bipedal salamanders or lizards with two pairs of upper arms. They are aquatic, and range in color from green to purple. Charoni have golden yellow plates on their bellies, running from their neck down to their crotch.
Charoni have strong passions. They imagine themselves to be the swashbucklers of the universe, and frequently dress flamboyantly. At imperial functions, the Charoni give new meaning to the phrase "Drinks like a fish", as they party exuberantly. At the same time, Charoni can wage war as well as any race - a troop of Charoni Death Troopers played a decisive role at the battle of Cygni 4.
