The Torfans are a race native to Torfa.
After the destruction of Skrulls' home planet, a group of them led by Talos sought refuge on Torfa, using their shape-shifting abilities to blend in with Torfans. They set up an ambush on the planet for the Starforce. The Starforce were commanded not to interfere with Torfans and not to let them interfere with their mission of rescuing Soh-Larr. Taking the form of Torfans, the Skrulls were able to get close and surround the Starforce, and then begin the ambush at once.
