The Sauvax were a race of stout, crab-like beings native to the planet Leritor. The average Sauvax was amphibious, and moved about on six spindly legs. The arms of a Sauvax ended in heavy claws, and their entire body was covered with chitinous armor. This natural armor was flexible enough to allow a wide range of movement for the Sauvax's limbs and neck. Each hand-claw ended in five fingers: two large pincers and three opposable digits for finer manipulation. Despite their fearsome appearance, the average Sauvax was not warlike in nature, preferring to resolve disputes through discussion and negotiation.
