History of the Race: The Kaa are located in The Fulcrum Region, They control a small empire via the basic tools of fear and terror. They don't even like each other much. Sadistic, belligerent, cannibalistic, they take delight in torturing and eating people. They look for fights. Their favorite comeback is "I will eat your eyes." Not the nicest people in the neighborhood.
The Kaa are feeling increasingly compressed between the massive implacably friendly Federation, the fair but just Bendarri Empire, and the irresistible Empire of the Acceptians. They have not made moves to expand away from this and the reason is not understood.
The Kaa officially deny the Serpentoid decline and evolution theory. They and they alone are fit to rule, bringing themselves up by their own lack of bootstraps. Kaa adherence to fact is noted.
