They were the inhabitants of one of the first worlds colonized by the Star People. The Predators evolved paw-like hands with switchblade thumbs, strong jaws full of teeth and large, sensitive ears. These features had made them among the most effective of the many carnivorous posthumans in the Qu-conquered worlds.
Their prey were a herbivorous human species with bird-like legs, far less intelligent than their predators, the latter of whom eventually evolved into the Killer Folk.
