The Zangali are tall, warm-blooded reptiloids with a wide stubborn streak and a strict code of honor. Although quick-tempered and disinclined to become fluent in alien languages, most Zangali do not fit the common misconception that they are dumb.
Granted, as a culture they are less wily than their Grimlahdi cousins. But they are forthright and pride themselves on straight-talking and honesty - and they take a dim view of people who betray or lie to them. At the same time, they have no qualms with resorting to terrorism to achieve their goals.
Although Zangali are capable of learning and speaking in other languages they are generally culturally turned away from learning them. The main language of the Zangali is Zantra.
This is a harsh tongue dominated by thick consonants in grunts and hisses, it features a superlative system vastly more complex than Terran Standard.
