The B'Tavi by Babaganoosh
The B'Tavi are a hardy species of Arthropods, and are fully committed to the cause of the Greater Good. Their civilization had already self-destructed when the Tau discovered them, the victim of vicious factionalism and infighting. The Tau brought back the B'Tavi species from the brink of annihilation and helped them reshape their culture under the principle of the Greater Good. By the time of the Third Sphere of Expansion, the B'Tavi were fully contributing members of the Empire, and one of the most loyal species in the Empire. The B'Tavi evolved in a Sulfur-based atmosphere, which makes them singularly useful within the Empire for terraforming and hazardous duty in Sulfur environments, although it means that among most other species they are forced to don Sulfur rebreathers. The B'Tavi only recently began contributing troops to the Tau Empire's Auxiliary forces, having renounced violence after reflecting on their brush with self-annihilation, a policy only recently reversed.
