The krogan homeworld of Tuchanka was home to a wide array of aggressive fauna, requiring the krogan species to breed aggressively to survive. Against all the predators of Tuchanka, only one krogan newborn in a thousand could expect to survive to maturity.

The predator threat subsided only after the krogan developed advanced weapons technology, eventually devastating their planet in nuclear war. The harsh post-war ecology continued to keep their population in check until the [[salarian]]s transported krogan off their homeworld to assist in their war against the [[rachni]]. The krogan won, but they became a problem themselves when removed from the hostile environment of Tuchanka, as their population began to grow rapidly. Krogan began to expand beyond the planets granted to them by the [[Citadel]] Council, even invading planets populated by Citadel member races. The [[turian]]s used superior technology and strategic intelligence to devastate krogan armies, but despite massive casualties, the krogan population continued to grow. To mitigate the Krogan threat, the salarians created a genetically engineered disease called the genophage to reduce krogan reproduction to its pre-industrial level, and the turians unleashed it on the krogan population. No longer able to replace their staggering losses, the krogan were finally defeated.

The predator threat subsided only after the krogan developed advanced weapons technology.

Afterwards, the surviving krogan mostly gave up on political aspirations of empire. Instead their society fragmented along clan lines. That said, krogan society remains highly martial, and many (though by no means all) krogan now seek employment in mercenary companies. Krogan tactics have also evolved from the rebellion period. Previously, they relied on attritional warfare, but being unable to replace losses so rapidly, their methods of warfare became geared more towards maximising the individual skills of each combatant, giving rise to the krogan Battlemasters.
