The Turian are a species of humanoid aliens native to the Peruvian Sector in the Inner Rim. Haling from the world Tuchanka and the Tucha System, the Turian form the backbone of defense in the sector before and after the Galactic Civil War.
Appearance and Culture
Turian features are avian in nature, resembling birds or raptors. Most also have painted-on markings on their faces whose design and color denote which colony or system they were born or raised in. Turian society in general is very honor-bound, concerned with the performance of one's duty, regardless of one's role in society. All Turians work for the glory of the state and are all state-employed in some way. Military service is required for all Turian citizens, as well as client species who wish to become full Turian citizens on Tuchanka.
Despite this preoccupation with law and order, many are surprised by the importance Turian society places on personal freedoms. Turian society allows for freedom of speech, religion and the practice of practically any activity that does not harm or undermine the state or individual honor. There are Turian who are known to observe and adhere to Asari and even Human religious practices; there is an increasingly large segment of Turian who are known to practice belief in the Force, although this is done secretly during the time of the Galactic Empire. It's done, not so much by Force-sensitives, but more as a spiritual belief in the Force as a spiritual faith.
Their species is governed by the Turian Hierarchy, a collection of military leaders and autocrats, and of the Peruvian Sector species, they possess the largest military force, even if they are not as powerful as the technologically or economically superior Imperial forces. As such, they are largely employed as the front line of the sector’s combined military/security forces. Both before and after the Galactic Civil War, the Turian forces were formidable.
Politically, the Turian are conservative, paying great observance to tradition, duty, loyalty, honor and the preservation of the status quo.
