The Watraii (Rihan: Watraiisu) were an offshoot of the Romulan species that were exiled from Remus in ancient times. They were known for wearing face-covering masks. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Soul; Bait and Switch: "Sienov Mnhei'sahein")


In 2377 the Watraii emerged from their isolation to make war on the Romulan Star Empire. Ambassador Spock succeeded in ending this conflict after the Federation was caught up in it. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Soul)

In 2410 the Romulan Republic negotiated to form an alliance with the Watraii. Garaf, the heir of a Watraii duke, attempted to derail this by challenging an Lieutenant Commander Jaleh Khoroushi, operations officer of RRW Bloodwing, to a duel, but her CO, Commander General Morgaiah t'Thavrau, substituted herself and severely wounded Garaf with her honor blade, forcing him to capitulate. The Watraii Parliament subsequently narrowly voted in favor of continuing negotiations. (Bait and Switch: "Sienov Mnhei'sahein")


The Watraii language was a derivative of Rihan, but featured changes to certain phonemes. (Bait and Switch: "Sienov Mnhei'sahein")

  • kh'Rahon - Romulus (from Rihan "ch'Rihan")
  • Rahonshu - Romulans (from Rihan "Rihannsu")
  • Thesha - the planet Vulcan (from Rihan "Thaes")
