The Talpaedans are a strong, armadillo-like species from planet Terraexcava, a planet in the Andromeda galaxy.
Talpaedans can move through solid earth and rock. They are heavily armored and have powerful organic pneumatic drills built into their forearms, which they can use to create earthquakes, dig tunnels, pummel enemies and batter buildings, even mountains, down to rubble. Talpaedans have a jackhammer punch, so when they throw just one punch at an enemy, it is like being hit a hundred times. They also have incredible strength, being shown to throw large robots with ease. Talpaedans seem to have black blood and seem to fade in color when injured. This could be an evolutionary response to injury, making it harder to tell them apart from the ground they live in.
Talpaedans have many features in common with rodents, such as pointy ears, long tails and long, sharp claws.
Talpaedans look like a cross between rodents and robots. They have yellow hard armored skin, with a black, grey and yellow color scheme. Their arms contain jackhammer parts, which are also present on their hands and other places. They have a grey tail with four fingers and three toes.
Talpaedans' predatorial species is the Slamworm's
- The name Talpaedan is derived from Talpidae, which is a name for a family of mammals that includes subterranean animals such as moles.
