Taurhai are a tall humanoid species, averaging 2 meters tall. They have an enlarged cranium and beetled brows, with a small mouth and a narrow pointed chin. They wear their dark hair long, but are bald on top. They have no eyebrows, and completely black eyes without iris or pupil. Taurhai bodies and limbs are long, slender and graceful, and they have long, dexterous fingers. Their skin color ranges from pale tan to dark brown. They typically wear long robes with voluminous sleeves, decorated with glyphs and symbols of the individual’s achievements.

The Taurhai are a technologically advanced species situated in the Beta Quadrant on the far side of the Romulan Star Empire, with who the Romulans have been at war for several decades. This war kept the Romulans preoccupied for 50 years. Shaky diplomatic talks are ongoing between the Romulan Star Empire and the Taurhai Unity.

The Taurhai subscribe to a philosophy known as Taurité, which holds that less civilized races should have their collective consciousness raised by any means, including military action.
