Warrior class race similar to a guardian but differ in their approach in training and philosophy. A Shanooks philosophy is to aid in comfort and stability, and are growing increasingly uncomfortable with the guardians treatment of the worlds they protect. In training, they rely more on individual instinct & talent, than multiple gene manipulation. Their numbers are not great and their home world (Trakus 3) is not a leading exporter. In all a mostly self contained society with little contact with other worlds except in cases when asked for help. They are reliable in coming with a very passionate desire to fulfill their philosophy. All will deny, but it is known that the guardians see the increasing population of Trakus 3 as a serious threat.
