The Priest Kings are an insectoid extraterrestrial species of extreme technological development from an unknown world somewhere in our known universe. Little is known about their official origins. They are an extremely logical, scientific society with a very ant-like social hierarchy and design. It is believed that their species has existed for million of years, far exceeding the existence of Earthians. They are the creators of Gor, protectors of Earth and Gor, and hated enemies of the Kurii. They are a mostly peaceful species, preferring analysis and information to confrontation and violence.
