The Runghiri is a race of tribal reptilians that reside on Kaidan Magna. They are divided into separate tribes and are vying for control of the planet and are a central race in the Chaotic Calm.


The Runghiri was one of the first races created by the Great Beings, with their prototype being the Shang-Zo. They were in similar design to Oriental dragons, having slender and long bodies, having small amounts of fur, and sometimes antlers. However, only a few were made before the Great Beings took the design and revised it for the Kanohi Dragon. When the current design of the Runghiri was finished, they all lived separately as families living off the land, until a race of parasitic aliens called the Idrahans invaded Kaidan Magna. They enslaved the entire Runghiri race to construct a new metropolis for them, as the Idrahan's home world was dying. However, a young Kerogu would not tolerate to oppression any longer, and rallied an army to fight back against the Idrahan Empire. They drove the Idrahans to Kaidan Magna's largest moon Jutlin Mina, and established a tribal system so resources could be shared among other Runghiri who had formed alliances.


Runghiri are known for their natural resistance to poisons, infections, and biological threats, as well as their blood and saliva being acidic. Their immune systems are extremely effective in eliminating foreign bodies, rendering biological warfare useless. They usually have a sleek head, that which resembles a crocodile, with slitted eyes, sharp teeth, and sometimes having horns and fins. Males are larger than females, representing their male-dominated culture. An average lifespan of a Runghiri is 600-800 years, with females living longer than males. Some Runghiri have a chemical called homophybin, which is responsible for their vibrant colors, can be controlled, giving them a natural camouflage. Runghiri eyes are proficient in seeking targets, as they have thermal vision, as well as a quick adaptation to the dark. Their scales are tightly knit together, which provides a natural defense against threats. Runghiri on average can lift 6x their weight, and the average male weight is 430 pounds, which showcases their brutish body build.
