Krogan are a race of extragalactic, bipedal, turtle-like reptilians native to the planet Tuchanka in the Andromeda Galaxy. They are large, physically imposing and brutal by nature. Krogan are members of the Andromeda Treaty and serve as shock troops and heavy infantry for the Treaty's military. They are often clad in heavy armor and wield only the most powerful weaponry, and they usually form the strongest point in any squad of Treaty Soldiers. A single armored Krogan can match against a squad of smaller races. Krogan are very tall, around 7 feet tall on average. Krogan culture, like that of the orks', is dominated by war and fighting. Krogan believe that all problems can be solved with violence.
