In the distant past, both the Psychlos and another species developed [[teleportation]] technology at around the same time. The two races soon came into conflict as they competed for new territory and resources, and the conflict became a vicious intergalactic war. The Psychlos eventually prevailed, wiping out their rivals. In the aftermath, they took steps to keep any other race from developing teleportation technology that could be used against them. Their scientists developed neurological implants that control Psychlo behavior, making it impossible for them to divulge secrets about Psychlo technology. Side effects of the implants gave the Psychlos an enormous superiority complex and near-psychotic paranoia, causing them to fear and despise anyone who didn't have the appropriate implants and associated behaviors. Consequently, all Psychlos have behavior controlling implants, which are implanted shortly after they are born. Most Psychlos have multiple implants. Female Psychlos have implants which cause them to become comatose if they attempt to learn forbidden knowledge, such as mathematics.

As the only race in the known universe to possess teleportation technology, the Psychlos became the most powerful race in the universe, as they could attack their enemies without warning, bypassing all defenses, and their foes couldn't launch effective counterattacks due to the long travel times required to reach Psychlo assets.
