Brown Mantis hail from the system of Ughathutthuckusa-zathuthuh which was a contender for the seat of the Mantis empire. It lost not due to a fierce battle, but simply because the Mantis voting on the issue often confused it for Ughathutthucksa-zathutthuh, which is, of course, the Mantis term for "suprisingly clean restroom." – BlackVegetable Apr 13 '14 at 22:29
