The Jem'Hadar were a genetically engineered race to serve as the military arm of the Dominion. They are a reptilian species who had highly violent urges and were ruthless fighting machines. The species lacks no female species as they do not mate. They required the drug ketracel-white for nutrition and to ensure their circulatory system remained functional; without the administration of this drug they would shortly die. Notably, the Jem'Hadar have the capacity to 'shroud' themselves, meaning they and their weapons cannot be detected by sensors or visibly. For further reference, please see the Memory Alpha page.

This tag is to be used for questions inquiring about the culture, physiology and other aspects related to this species.
