The Sontarans were a race of belligerent and militaristic clones from the planet Sontar, created by the Kaveetch. They waged eternal war throughout Mutter's Spiral against the Rutan Host. The Sontarans were humanoids with large, bulbous heads and short, stocky bodies. They had grey-brown skin and deep-set features. Sontarans generally had three digits on each hand (two fingers and a thumb). Some Sontarans also had vestigial hair, generally in the form of beards, which grew white with age. Sontaran blood was green. The Sontarans reproduced by cloning, meaning each Sontaran was nearly identical to each other. There were some instances in variation, such as the number of fingers or skin colour. The mass cloning techniques they possessed allowed their hatcheries to produce up to 1,000,000 Sontarans in 4 minutes. All appeared roughly the same age, with the exception of General Sontar, who appeared older. The rare Pureblood Sontaran had increased status and were higher in the hierarchy. Occasionally, genetic defects would crop up and the afflicted Sontarans would be sent to work in menial labour. They joined the Coalition of Independent States
