This creature is another alien species idea that I updated for the Sentient 39 universe in 2001. I originally invented them back in high school for a comic series that was never more than an idea. Seriously. I don’t think I ever did more than one or two sketches of any of the characters. I never did get around to naming the species. As I’ve said, names are often the last things I think of. While they did develop space flight they never used it for more than local resource gathering. As a species they are xenophobic, prone to religious fervor and ecstacies, and constantly at war. They’ve most destroyed their ecosystem and, by all indications are their way to extinction.
Another species would never see one of them like this. They wear their armor like a second skin. This is what they look like without it.
