The Taurill Overmind was known in history to be one of the collective hive-consciousness of the Taurill. It was motivated by a desire to spread the Taurill throughout the galaxy, and to that end reached an agreement with Durga Besadii Tai in the year 12 ABY. The agreement was that the Taurill would aid in the construction of the Darksaber, and in return Durga would help seed them across the galaxy.
