Adversary Stalking Acklay
Stalking Acklay (Nemesis)
Acklays are ferocious, three-meter tall, six-legged predators native to the planet Vendaxa. These non-sentient hunters evolved in the crucible of Vendaxa’s harsh eco-system to become finely honed killing machines. An acklay’s high metabolism gives it a great deal of energy, especially when hunting. Acklays are thick-shelled crustaceans that can live underwater or on the land. The acklay’s three eyes can see in almost-total darkness, and each of its legs ends in an enormous claw it uses to pin or slash at prey. Because of their combat prowess, acklays are used across the galaxy in gladiatorial areanas.
