Rifts®: Megaversal Highway™
The Vallax are insect-like aliens from another part of the universe. The disgusting creatures have four legs, a long thorax, two arms equipped with two additional “armlets” that protrude from their forearms, and four thin vestigial limbs that may have been used to climb, but which no longer have any use. Two very large eyes are located toward the tip of the head, with two long, chainlike antennae located near the back. The creatures never wear armor or clothing of any kind; their tough carapaces allow them to withstand severe temperature extremes and injury that would kill
a human. The creatures communicate via chemical secretions and ultra-sonic frequencies that humans (and even Dog Boys) can’t hear. The chemicals produce a variety of smells, many of which are quite revolting to humans, who can sometimes smell a Vallax as far as 200 feet (61.0 m) away (triple for Dog Boys)!
