My interpretation of the Yuuzhan Vong, a warrior species that utilises organic technology in everything from their huge worldships to personal armour. Their philosophical beliefs are centred around self mutilation and sacrifice to appease their gods. This race features in the New Jedi Order of Star Wars books, and were the highlight of a series that was pretty ordinary in places in my opinion. I mean it killed off half of my favourite characters, which was bound to annoy me and the angst level was a little high.
I really wanted to focus on his sense of superiority, that his actions are compelled and guided by a higher force. Almost that he has attained a divinity in his mutilated form.
