The Skrull have been spacefarers for millions of years. Originally, they were peaceful merchants, willing to share their technology with all who were worthy. However, when they arrived on the planet Hala, home to the barbaric Kree and the peaceful Cotati, they held a contest between both races. The Cotati won, but the Kree took the Skrull's spaceships by force and developed their own technology from it. This forced the Skrulls to become militaristic and aggressive and a war between Kree and Skrulls started, a conflict that would rage for millennia with only short interruptions. Due to its strategic position Earth has been a target of both Kree and Skrull and hence the Skrulls have tried to invade it several times. Every attempt so far has failed, though it has been hinted that the Skrulls do have dozens of hidden agents on Earth and may even control whole towns.

The Skrulls are considered to be a mythical race of beings, no one is sure that they even exist or where they come from. There are many different names for their race and any of the following are considered to be a correct nomenclature for the race: The Changelings, Shi'ido, Protean, Durlan, Wraiths (Or Dire Wraith) as well as Clawdites. Anyone failing a Perception check will disbelieve in the existence of the Changeling and will further go about making excuses who what they just saw or were told.
Those who discover the true nature of the Skrull in the presence will immediately begin to grow distrustful of them despite the fact that they may or may not have done any thing to rise their ire. This is largely due to the fact that Skrulls are secretive about the existence and often times their identity.
