Will of the Colony, The
this was the name given to the overriding Will of the entire collection of hives inhabited by the Kind. Although each hive had its own Will, all of these were guided by the Will of the Colony. The Will of the Colony was believed to have been created when Raynar Thul was joined to the Yoggoy hive, after The Crash. As the Unu hive was formed and UnuThul drew on his connection to the Force, he established a telepathic connection to every hive of the Kind, regardless of distance, by tapping into the combined Force potential of the Kind. In this way, the various members of the Unu hive contributed their own hive's consciousness to the Will of the Colony, allowing the Kind to expand beyond their then-current borders without breaking their links to the main hive. It was this expansion of the Colony, controlled by the Will of the Colony, that worried the Chiss enough to attempt to starve entire worlds of the Kind.
