"With fire and steel did the gods forge the Klingon heart. So fiercely did it beat, so loud was the sound, that the gods cried out,

'On this day we have brought forth the strongest heart in all the heavens. None can stand before it without trembling at its strength.'

But then the Klingon heart weakened, its steady rhythm faltered and the gods said,

'Why have you weakened so? We have made you the strongest in all of creation.'

And the heart said...

'I am alone.'

And the gods knew that they had erred. So they went back to their forge and brought forth another heart. But the second heart beat stronger than the first, and the first was jealous of its power. Fortunately, the second heart was tempered by wisdom.

'If we join together, no force can stop us.'

And when the two hearts began to beat together, they filled the heavens with a terrible sound. For the first time, the gods knew fear. They tried to flee, but it was too late. The Klingon hearts destroyed the gods who created them and turned the heavens to ashes. To this very day, no one can oppose the beating of two Klingon hearts."

Physical Description[edit]

Klingons stand about as tall as humans, with a tendency towards a more muscular build. Their most striking characteristic is the raised, ridged foreheads. They also tend to have dark skin, slanted eyebrows, and hair that is usually brown or black and worn long by both genders. Klingon males usually wear goatees.


Before their current system, Klingons lived in distinct castes. The founder of the Klingon Empire was a man of the warrior caste named Kahless, who did many great deeds, including killing the tyrant Molor. Klingons now regard him as a deity. As the years went by, Klingons began to build their culture around him, until the warrior caste expanded to include the entire race.


Klingon society is extremely brutal, militaristic, and honor-bound, similar to that of the ancient city-state of Sparta. Weakness is not accepted for any reason, and, with a few exceptions, the only way to win honor in Klingon society is through battle. The Klingons believe that they killed the gods long ago. The vast majority of Klingon adventurers are fighters or barbarians, though a few Klingons are clerics or paladins devoted to Kahless.
