The look more implies the naturekeepers. Those that manage the big old reservations/parks.

A more outlandish option would be a long lost splinter of the Silver Imperium, recently rejoined.

Tatao in Tarka means silver, and specifically connotes the Silver Kona clan. They are not members of of the Silver Imperium, but they do argue that the Silver Imperium was the height of Tarka civilization, and that the Silver Kona are the legitimate rulers of the empire.

Heh, noticed that the Hivers have allied with the Elcor. :P

Seriously though, he is a welcome addition since the Warrior caste is relatively lacking as opposed to Workers and Princes. Now we only need a few Princessess.

It took quite a while for me to identify them as I listened for the growling almost rumbling Zuul voices. Then it struck me that the most serene and HAL 9000 like voice was actually a Prester Zuul. He talks about himself as 'I', which the Liir don't seem to do, and his voice is singular while the Liir is a chorus of voices. Subtle... very subtle work there. 8)

Glad you heard him, Tarrak. Prester Zuul are immersed in Liir culture, so their voices are pitched to calm, rather than intimidate. But they retain their identity as Zuul, and can come and go from the Choir as they please; they are born and raised as individuals. :)

You know, I was checking this again as I was about to play the Tarkas in a single player game(the pro of working an evenning shift: having a lot of free time in the mornings. The cons of working an evening shift: working an evening shift and returning home to the pitch black sky).

Then I noted that one of the Tarkas avathars was a rather arrogant-looking male, with his scowl and glare, without mentionning high collared suit. Then I noted the silvery color of his scales and suddenly I couldn't help but wonder, but is he related to the Tataoru?

The mix of arrogant posturing from the avathar, with the Tataoru's claims that the Silver Kona is the rightful ruler of the Tarka seems like it would fit very nicely.

I always thought the Morrigi immersion skin looked more proper for Morrigi in general. They seem like the kind of people who would paint their ships bright colors and lavish a lot of attention on them in general. Dark purple metal always seemed like a kind of weird choice for them. I prefer the immersion skins.
