Trochilidae migrated from the same dark matter nebula as the Leopan Conquistadors. The avian nature of Trochilidae has ties with some of the known time knight beings. Their alliance with the Leopan is one of the most tentative on the Far Side.
The bird-like agility of the Trochilidae is apparent in their maneuverable ship designs thanks to their Maneuvering Thrusters. They would use their smaller ships for target practice to hone the skills of fledgling captains. Capable of surviving prolonged abuse, once provoked, Trochilidae could turn on an opponent with lightning speed. Their heavy weapon of choice is the Plasma Degenerator.
