A bizarre cross-breeding of an owl and a cat, the Owlcat retains characteristics of both species. Winged and feathered like an owl, but playful and cuddly like a cat, the creature was a smash hit for the Cristix corporation's designer pet division. Hundreds of thousands of Owlcats were sold, and today large societies of Owlcat aficionados exist online and elsewhere.

Flugwurts are an extremely mirthful race. As a people they had long ago abandoned organized warfare. Disputes on their planet are resolved in a "war" of extremely elaborate practical jokes, where leaders of individual nation states repeatedly attempt to outdo each other. Limits had to be imposed after the prime minister of one impoverished nation nearly created ecological chaos when he attempted to harvest the polar ice caps to create a gargantuan banana cream pie, the impact of which would have thrown the planet off it's orbit. Thus a historic treaty limiting J.O.M.D. (jokes of mass destruction) was enacted. Flugwurts tend to find employment as actors, joke writers, talk show hosts, and stand up comedians.

Scarabides are a race of beetle-like humanoids. They possess brightly colored (and extremely durable) exoskeletons that can withstand high caliber bullets. Unlike other insect species there is no rigid social hierarchy, no caste systems, or queens. Each Scarabide is an individual unto himself, so much so that they are inherently distrustful of all outsiders, even members of their own species.

The Asurghyha are a sect of demons devoted to a strict religious/philosophical ideology. When a member joins the sect dark rituals are performed to invoke forbidden magics. The neophyte's body is literally turned inside out, and reformed into a spider-like visage. The Asurghyha then take a ten thousand year vow of silence, during which they complete their mystical training. They are generally neutral during the many conflicts that ravage through the Hell dimensions, although they will defend themselves if provoked.

Freakish mutations resulting from a deranged geniuses' mad science. The Apeclops is more intelligent than average apes with it's brain capacity, and are able to use tools and follow complex instructions. Left to their own devices however they have degenerated into the most base animal savagery.

Testuoids are a reptilian race, with small, round bodies and rubbery limbs. They do not possess a rigid skeletal structure like other beings. Their "skeleton" is composed of a gel-like material which can be hardened or softened at will. They are thus a very flexible, if not physically strong race.

A creature which uses the thighbone of a larger animal as a weapon. The meatroller removes it's own teeth and implants them in it's "roller," then steamrolls it's way through the jungle underbrush, grinding up any organic matter in it's wake.

Pfigglyqinks are strange multidimensional entities. Their squat bodies are merely projections, as their true forms cannot convalesce in this reality. Large populations of them simply appeared one day on several dozen different planets. The creatures themselves so far have been peaceful, and claim no memory of where they are from beyond vague descriptions such as "The Bubbly place."

The Nomul are creatures which have nearly evolved to the point where they no longer require physical bodies. The "brain" of the Nomul makes up all tissues of it's body. They posses no skeletal, endocrine, or digestive systems. The "eyes" of the creature are weak, vestigial organs which are only used by the very young - adult Nomuls use an advanced form of "psychic seeing" to navigate the world around them. They are extremely intelligent as a race, even the young or those without extensive educations show advanced IQ scores. They tend to become scientists, spiritualists, philosophers, and politicians.

Dragon Snails are the results of a mad wizard's experiments to gain revenge on a kingdom which banished him. The creatures are extremely tough, although not particularly agile. Due to their lack of speed they are best used as guards or sentries, in confined spaces which do not require a lot of movement (i.e. corridors, caves, valleys, etc.)

The Lateus Animalus is a "Mirth" Demon. Like many other demons he feeds from the lifeforce of his victims, in this case the energy released during laughter. Mirth demons are generally harmless, but will pull elaborate, cruel, and sometimes dangerous pranks in order to feed.

A race of demons specifically bred by the higher Demon lords to act as lower level captains, slave masters, or work bosses. They are sufficiently intelligent enough to boss around those lower than themselves, but lack the will to make their own decisions. They are bred for their size and strength, and tend to rely on brute force in any situation.

Cannon Frogs are genetically altered amphibians, surgically altered with cybernetic plasma cannons. They are created by bio-hackers and sold on the black market, mostly to be used in illegal bio-gladiator tournaments against other such creatures. Animal rights activists estimate more than three thousand such creatures are exploited in tournaments each year.

Another failed attempt by the Cristix corporation to make headway into the designer pet market. Although Gatorpoles tested well with the male 8-16 age group, a well organized parents organization successfully sued to block sales on the grounds of public safety. All stocks of Gatorpoles were supposedly destroyed, although recently they have been seen on the black market.

Bipedal humanoid aliens with three eyes and a unique, three lobed brain. Because of their physiology, they have developed a very complicated religious theology, headed by a trinity of gods and a trimunitive church. Branches of the trimunitive can be found on most worlds the Goleaquaxians have had contact with. Religious sects run from the very liberal to the fanatical, but most will band together to face a common threat.

A species of large, semi-sentient alien insects. The creature was given the nickname "ClickaPillar" by early explorers due to it's resemblance to the Earthly caterpillar and from the clicking sounds the creature constantly emits. The creature's multiple "eyes" around it's body are actually organs which pick up vibrations, which allow it too navigate in the same way as bats or dolphins. ClickaPillars are also able to regenerate missing segments of their bodies.

The Pachytiline is the result of a gene splicing experiment by a couple of junior high school students. Genetic material from various reptiles and deep sea worms was injected into a Lhasa Apso. The resulting mutation took on characteristics donor animals, but retained the dog's friendly personality. The students went on to win first place in the school science fair, and are now currently entering Pachytiline into various dog shows around the country.

These strange mutants have been given the nickname "Mud Puppies" akin to the fish of the same moniker due to their habit of wallowing through the mud at the bottoms of ponds and rivers. No one is exactly sure where they came from - it seems as they just simply appeared one day in the Florida everglades, and have slowly been making their way north. Analysis of the creature's DNA show they are distantly related to several extinct species of reptile.

Devil Scarabs began as an indigenous life form in a desert-filled Hell dimension. Millennia upon Millennia of influence from demonic energies have transformed the once simple insects into twelve foot tall monsters. Devil Scarabs will attack and devour any creature smaller than them. Those crossing the desert wastes do so at their peril.

The disgusting mutant known as SnailFace was originally a thief and petty thug, who attempted to break into the Cristix corporation labs to steal industrial secrets. A one-in-a-million accident with a top secret radioactive formula resulted in his present hideous mutation. SnailFace possesses superhuman strength, and his rubbery body resists blunt-force injury, even deflecting bullets of low caliber. SnailFace has since moved up in the criminal underworld.

The creature known as Funglob was once a mild mannered professor of radiology at Columbia University. A freak accident with a particle accelerator and a petri dish merged his DNA with a fungus and left him a hideously deformed mutation. Funglob now roams the country side, inadvertently spreading fear as he once remembers what it was to be human.
