Female Dire Wraith’s have drill-pointed tongues that they use to suck out the brains of their victims, which allows them to gain their memories. (It also causes the victim's body to dissolve into a kind of goo.) Among the wraiths, the majority of the males prefer to practice science, and the majority of the females prefer to practice evil magic.
The Dire Wraiths are an offshoot of the Skrulls from the Andromeda Galaxy. Like the Skrulls, the Wraiths are shape-shifters, able to take the forms of other creatures. Their basic appearance varies a great deal between genders. The male form is stocky and troll-like in appearance, with red or brown skin; but otherwise roughly human-like in size and shape. The female form has an obese, reddish body with large, pupil-less eyes, small beaks, 'hands' that resemble small pincers and tentacles; clawed feet, and thick tails.
At some point in their history, the Wraiths began to study evil magic. This caused a rift with their parent race, and they were driven away from the 'Skrull' galaxy long ago (hatred still persists between the two races to this day.) Using star ships powered by a combination of magic and technology, The Wraiths entered a region of space called the "Dark Nebula" where they found a planet that orbited a black sun. Finding that this planet allowed them to tap that sun's energies to use in their magical spells, the Wraiths settled there and named it "Wraithworld".
