The Batra seek to protect their worlds from the predations of the other alien races. The most long lived of the Batra knew a galaxy before the emergence of the Realm or the Hexagota and have seen firsthand the havoc which has been wrought. The time for wariness and patience has ended. Within every Batra is a hunter and now every clan is calling the fiercest of its warriors to war. They know that without action they face a slow decline and eventual extinction.
