The ferrothi are a race of living ferrous metals, having evolved in a manner unknown even to them from the metal cesspools of their home planet, a volcanic and exceedingly metal-rich planet known as Karnoth. The ferrothi themselves only recently developed language, after having found a crashed starship on their planet, and used their innate abilities with technology to reverse engineer the ship and disseminate the information therein. Within less than a century they had their own, hyperspace capable, ships and started exploring the galaxy around them.

Historians believe that at the time where the ferroth found the starship, they had only just entered their equivalent of the Industrial Revolution, and they find the speed with which the Ferrothi absorbed the information to be highly disturbing, wondering if there had been other forces at work previously. Even the language that the ferrothi now recognize seems to have come from the remains of the ship, having christened themselves ferrothi after the ferrous metals on their home planet.
