Tauron is a planet in the Caprica solar system, and one of the Twelve Colonies. The Taurus Tribe of Kobol colonized this planet. People of Tauron ancestry are often referred to as Taurons.

Native Taurons are a proud, passionate race - a loyal and storied culture in which family ties are secondary only to personal honor. ("Dirteaters")

Taurons wear black gloves when there is a death in the family. It is symbolic of keeping them separated from the world when they are in mourning. ("Pilot") ("Know Thy Enemy")

In Caprica City many Taurons live in a neighborhood called Little Tauron. ("Rebirth") ("Gravedancing")

Its people are dedicated to family in all forms and crimes against one's family usually sparks a blood debt. These blood debts usually are settled through a discussion between the victim and the accused and are settled through tribute. [citation needed]

A common slur against Taurons is "dirt eaters". ("Pilot") ("There is Another Sky")

Tattooing is part of Tauron custom. A person's life story can be read from their tattoos. The Ha'la'tha crime syndicate makes extensive use of tattooing, which leads some on Caprica to associate the custom with gangsters. ("Gravedancing")

Tauron Saying: "You lose something in the desert. Someone else finds it - it belongs to them. Permanent." ("There is Another Sky")

Ha'la'tha Proverb: "When the tree surrenders all its fruit, it's time to trim from the top down." ("Dirteaters")

Tauron Civil WarEdit

The Tauron uprising began in 12YR when poorly-armed native Rebel forces, known as the Ha'la'tha, attacked the presidential barracks, initiating a two-year Civil War. In the aftermath, the victorious Heraclides forces attempted a genocide by using murder squads, commonly referred to as Heracs. Facing extinction, the Ha'la'tha transformed to become an illegal underground organization throughout the Twelve Colonies. ("Dirteaters")
