Hailing from the poorly-researched planet Krr-Lrr, the Klurrrg are a gigantic, enormously strong race of herbivorous semi-arthropoids despised all across the galaxy for their barbaric and destructive ways. While it is known that females lead civilized, peaceful lives in their homeworld, the aggressive, hormone-ridden males roam through space in nomadic “clans” committing increasingly brutal acts of piracy on lone ships and far flung colonies. Boisterous and egocentric, they believe themselves to be superior to most races they meet and strip away everything of possible value, leaving ruin and shaken civilians behind them. Their ships are constantly customized and re-arranged with every new looting, so no fleets ever look identical, and in many cases only the presence of tribal markings painted on the hull ever unifies or identifies them as Klurrrg ships to begin with.
Their natural savagery only increases during their breeding season, for female Klurrrg are highly attracted to strong, healthy and violent mates, and as such the males engage in “ritual combat” for the right of siring the harems, more often than not ending in gruesome injuries and/or death. Those males that wish to settle into a job or take part of proper society have to be castrated or chemically altered, which leaves the breeding population stronger and wilder every generation....a vicious cycle that does not get the other races to warm up to them any sooner.
The “armoured” look of the Klurrrg lends itself to a symbiotic kind of mollusc they frequently use as an environmental suit off-world. Their true skin is dry and bumpy, often likened to that of the Earth animal known as walrus. Other physical oddities include several jaw-derived “arms” for manipulation of delicate items, an inflatable throat for long-distance communication, and two large “throat nostrils” responsible for the Klurrrg’s characteristic stereo voice.

Fun Fact: The Klurrrg do not name their children at birth, since they have not accomplished anything worthy of a name. Males receive a name after surviving their first looting ritual or something violent in nature in which they were successful. Females on the other hand, receive a name after providing worthwhile to the community.
