The Trabe are a devious people, who for a long time maintained amiable relations with other races on the surface, but hid unscrupulous deeds and dark designs far beneath. This was their undoing however, for their exploitation of the Kazon resulted in their revolt, and the Trabe were defeated, and their people scattered. The government was dissolved, social structures floundered, and much of their technology was seized. Today the Trabe reside mainly in exile, but the remnants of their people continue to rebuild on their homeworld, determined as they are to rebuild and strike back, for their grudge against the Kazon is bitter.
Trabe Shadow Agents seem skilled in diplomacy, and are ever patient and convincing with their arguments. This is precisely how they can infiltrate the political counsels of other races - and few of them ever discover the truth be-hind their subversive designs, before it is too late.
