"Every 76 years, the Omec home planet, which is here, would come close to the other Votan planets. The Omec came in giant space vessels and spirited away thousands upon thousands of our ancestors. Those harvested were kept as slaves until their Omec masters grew bored."
- Yengi Ksaruko - The Last Unicorns

The Omec are a Votan race from the planet Omec.



Omec have purple skin. They can open their jaws wide to consume their prey. ("The World We Seize") Omec can live for centuries and the older they get the stronger they get. Young Omec, even those decades old, are weak enough to be killed easily. ("Dead Air", "History Rhymes") They are incredibly strong. ("The Last Unicorns") They are resistant to many poisons. ("Dead Air") They can bring out their second skin or zekbatsin tto hunt and eat. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 10") Omec can survive serious injuries, including being stabbed through the brain, if they had fed recently. ("The Awakening") Omec can consume the organs of stronger Omec which allows them to take on a significant part of their strength. ("The Awakening")


Omec will take many sexual partners, including from their own family. ("Where the Apples Fell") Omec statues involve scenes of Omec fighting against and ripping apart other Votans and Volge. ("My Name Is Datak Tarr and I Have Come to Kill You") The use of second skin when engaging in combat with other Omec is considered uncivilized. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 10") The Omec envision the afterlife as a clearing in a forest or jungle. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 11") Omec prefer to eat their prey alive as cold or injured prey is considered distasteful, partly due to fear it may be diseased but also because they enjoy the thrill of the hunt. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 12") Omec do not believe in eating other Omec. ("Upon the March We Fittest Die")


They evolved from four-legged predatory creatures. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 10") The Omec arose long before the other Votan races. ("The Last Unicorns") They used the other Votan races, the "lesser races" as food until they were driven back to their home planet in the War of Six. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 5") With no food, they developed Protoform and eventually created the Indogene as entertaining prey. Eventually the Indogene rebelled so the Omec created the Control stems but it came too late and many fled the planet, forcing the Omec to sustain themselves on other things. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 3", "Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 9") When the Volge came to the Votanis System, they claimed the planet Omec and almost made the Omec extinct. ("Pursuit:Volge Vindication") The Omec built ships to escape the destruction of the Votanis System but Indogene saboteurs planted bombs to destroy the ships and prevent the Omec from coming to Earth. ("The Last Unicorns", "The Broken Bough")

A single Omec ship, the Tsuroz, arrived at Earth in 2048. Two Omec aboard, T'evgin and Kindzi came down to Earth to gather Gulanite to repower the ship. ("The World We Seize") T'evgin, after seeing how things were on Earth, decided against starting another Dread Harvest. ("My Name Is Datak Tarr and I Have Come to Kill You") After Kindzi killed T'evgin, she went up to the Tsuroz to begin awakening the other Omec for a Dread Harvest. ("Of a Demon in My View") She began bringing down several Omec and had humans and Votans provided for them to eat. A number of the Omec were killed by residents of Defiance. ("The Awakening") More Omec came down and began to raid Defiance for prey and more were killed. The Tsuroz was powered up and taken by Joshua Nolan and Meh Yewll into deep space, to look for a world that the Omec could live on. ("Upon the March We Fittest Die")
