Green Martians

Fearless and loyal allies. Implacable and merciless enemies. The Green Martians live in the wastes and deserted cities of Mars, and prey on the decadent and ever-feuding Red Martians.

They're better ecologists than the Red Martian scientists; the Green Martians live and survive in the Deep Wastes.

They're better archaeologists that the Red Martian scholars; the Green Martians have learned many secrets of long-abandoned and forgotten Red Martian city-states - and some have even explored the Old Martian's cthonic, labyrinthine  habitations.

They're better soldiers and statesmen than the Red Martians' Jeddaks; the Green Martians' greatest chieftains and khans can UNITE their disparate nations and overwhelm any Red Martian polity.

The reverse cannot be said to be true.

The Green Martians are the true masters of Mars.
