The Vashtunari are an alien race from The High Crusade.

Biology Edit

Vashtunari have green hair and feathery antennae, and quite possible of compatibility with humans.

History Edit

During the Englishemens' campaign to topple the Wersgorix Empire, Red John Hameward rescued a captive Vashtunari princess, whose people were about to be enslaved by the Wersgorix. The alien natives were grateful, but the Vashtunari's humanlikeness brought up a debate on whether prohibitions of Leviticus are applicable.
