The Unifying Force
“They were brutal, merciless, and unstoppable. They killed for the pleasure of it and seemed fulfilled by it.”
The Yuuzhan Vong—"Children of Yun-Yuuzhan", also called the Chosen Race, and sometimes incorrectly abbreviated to Vong, which implied that one was disowned by their family and their gods—are a sentient species resembling a Human in form, though they are taller and heavier than the average Human and have less hair on their heads. The Yuuzhan Vong are religious zealots, who view mechanical technology as blasphemy. Their technological innovations are genetically engineered and purely organic. Additionally, the Yuuzhan Vong deeply respect pain to the point of masochism, and strive to improve their physical capabilities through organ grafting. Such grafting is a status symbol within Yuuzhan Vong society.
Perhaps most notably, the Yuuzhan Vong are unable to be sensed through the Force. They are, in essence, voids in the Force.
