The Asgard are a highly advanced and benevolent race from another galaxy.
The Asgard were once a tall humanoid species. At the time, they reproduced sexually, like humans do, but have since lost the ability. Due to decay in the Asgard genome, a result of excessive cloning, they no longer possess the ability to reproduce sexually, and all Asgard that were still alive at the time of their self annihilation were clones.
The Asgard High Council is the governing body for the Asgard race. The size and structure of the council is unknown, but there are at least seven sitting members, including Freyr, Thor, and Penigal.
The Asgard were part of the Alliance of Four Great Races in the Milky Way galaxy (the others being the Ancients, the Nox and the Furlings).
