Pkunk are wacky, Dodobird-like beings, an offshoot of the Yehat race. They are pacifistic mystics who claim to be in constant contact with the "spirit-world". They once lived on Yehat homeworld of Gamma Serpentis I but now reside in the Krueger constallation. They love their distant Brethren with all their hearts, while the Yehat hate them with gusto.
Pkunk Frequently talk about spirits, fortune-telling and other New-Age kind of stuff which usually amuses Humans. However somehow they are always right about their fortune-tellings which makes it probable that the Pkunk have an highly-advanced "Sixth sense".
The Ilwrath are currently fighting a fanatical war against them, commanded by their Twin-gods.
