The Badoon are a reptilian alien species. They are notable for having a gender schism, resulting in two separate societies; the Brotherhood of Badoon (ruled by a 'Brother Royal') and the Sisterhood of Badoon (ruled by a Queen).
The Brotherhood live on the planet Moord, while the Sisterhood reside on the Badoon homeworld of Lotiara (Capella II, also known as 'Swampworld'), 42.2 light years from Earth. The planet Sqazzl lies in Badoon space The Brotherhood's currency is called 'kreull'.
The Badoon are older than the Kree and the Skrulls. There was a natural hatred between the two genders, and they fought each other in long gender wars. Eventually, the males won, placing the females in captivity. In time, the males developed technology and abandoned Lotiara, returning only when their mating drive made it necessary. The males became conquerors of worlds, while the females became pacifists, content to remain in peace on their homeworld and ignorant of the males' star-spanning empire.
