The Douwd were a powerful, immortal race made of pure energy. Capable of creating disguises and false surroundings by manipulating matter and energy. They have the ability to create and destroy on an epic scale.
Only one individual from the Douwd race has been encountered, a being who referred to itself as Kevin Uxbridge while in Human form. Living in human form and hiding his true identity he married Rishon (a human). When was Rishon 77 years old the couple moved to the Federation colony on Delta Rana IV.
In 2366, a warship belonging to a vicious species known as the Husnock attacked the planet. As Kevin possessed a pacifist conscience, he refused to destroy the Husnock attackers outright, instead trying to scare them away with false images. Instead of fleeing, however, they became “angrier and more cruel”, laying waste to the planet. Finally, Rishon left Kevin’s side and joined the fight against the Husnock perishing with the other colonists. When Kevin found her body, he lost control of his emotions; in a fury of blind rage, he summoned his powers and destroyed the Husnock completely, all fifty billion of the species. When Kevin regained his senses and realized what he had done, he was horrified. He used his powers to recreate his house and Rishon, then sentenced himself to exile as the only living being on Rana IV.
