The Vhoscythe is an evolutionary adaptation of the Vhozon race.
The Vhozon tuck their arms and legs in tightly, allowing themselves to spin quickly in a top-like manner. This alternate form arose as a way for the Vhozon to keep warm on their frigid home world, Vho. A long scythe-like appendage can also be extended when spinning, allowing the Vhoscythe to fend off enemies.
