The Ilwrath were a hostile but weak race living in the Tauri constellation. The Ilwrath were conquered fairly quickly in 2107 and were delighted when the Ur-Quan offered them powerful hyperspace-capable ships. Soon the Ilwrath were appeasing their dark gods by destroying enemy ships in combat and torturing POWs to death.
Early model Ilwrath Avengers were armed with a dorsally-mounted flame blaster. This arrangement proved to be less than optimal in combat conditions. The Avengers were also equipped with a cloaking device that rendered the ship indetectable to others. This frequently allowed the Ilwrath to close to the effective range of the flame blast.
