Krogan are large, heavily built humanoids of reptilian ancestry. Krogan are strong, durable, and adaptable creatures with life spans measured in centuries.  Prior to the release of the genophage biological weapon, krogan birth rates were extremely high: a single krogan female could give birth to more than a thousand young in a year.

A key aspect of krogan biology is their multiple redundant organs. Krogan can survive multiple shots from assault rifles and continue fighting.  Instead of a usual nervous system, krogan have an electrochemical second circulatory system that acts as a redundant nervous system; thanks to this system, a krogan can never be permanently paralyzed as the circulatory system will heal over time.  Krogan can also enter into a "blood rage", a state of rage that makes them unresponsive to pain and other debilitations; the blood rage is such that even a clinically brain-dead krogan with its limbs severed will continue to aimlessly thrash around with its teeth until it expires.  To top it all off, krogan have a tough hide, stated to be so tough that nothing short of a "molecular blade" can penetrate it.
