About Torassi Torassi is the language spoken by the Toras people in the nation of Toraskug on the planet Halarus. It is an agglutinative language that features 7 verb tenses, 4 moods and 8 cases. Torassi relies on a series of affixes (including prefixes, suffixes, infixes and circumfixes) to convey these grammatical functions, in addition to conveying the function of a pronoun (as there are no separate words for pronouns) and modifying the meaning of some words.

Torassi is the dominant language on Halarus, which is called Torasvrańa, or "Toras sky", in Torassi, and Toraskug has dominated the entire planet through imperial conquest. As a result, Torassi is spoken all over the planet and has over 3 billion speakers and hundreds of dialects. The standard dialect is virtually devoid of loanwords, however many of the dialects feature words, phrases and sounds from the local language mixed into Torassi.
