Xap

Xap
Uplifted by the Xatinni 1.3 million years ago. They were at that time headed into cannibalism due to the lack of animal life on their home planet. It is believed the Xap ravaged all other species to extinction.


Xap have radial symmetry, with four arms and four legs arranged evenly around a central axis. An array of optical fibres fan out above the shoulders. The "hands" are bundles of six to eight tentacles blending with the long fur of the flexible arms. Xap mate and travel for life in pairs. They are constantly looking for profit.
