The Sontarans were a race of belligerent and militaristic clones from the planet Sontar, created by the Kaveetch. They waged eternal war throughout Mutter's Spiral against the Rutan Host. Humanoids, they had large, bulbous heads and short stocky bodies. Possessed of grey-brown skin and deep set features, they were a clone species, ultimately derived from only a few individuals.

One of the cooler species categories is species by biology. Take a gander! That category will help you find species by the special biology they have. Aquatic species, energy beings, species with binary vascular systems — they're all here waiting for you.
Maybe no publication has been so active in the creation of off-the-wall species than Doctor Who Adventures. Some of the funkiest names in DWU history come from that mag. Both Homozillians and Hussuloofian come from DWA – and we've not even looked outside the hs.
