Three distinct, related creatures have been called trox. The original trox were eight-legged arthropods until a time long ago when their spiritual leader ordered their magical transformation into their current humanoid form. Spellcasters made four of the trox’s eight legs into powerful limbs, shaped mandibles into scythes, and transformed chitin into layered armor plates that can flare in an intimidating display.
Although they were created as emissaries, trox also make great soldiers. They are protectors of the spiritual center, and they greet all peaceful visitors with humility and grace. The influence the philosopher worms of Nchak hold over the trox is mysterious. Trox speak of these worms only to say that they serve the beneficent aims of the Forever Queen.
Trox often serve as spiritual guides and advisors. Trox travel more often to teach and protect others than to seek adventure. Despite their might, they prefer to use their imposing presence to defuse conflict before it starts.
To trox, hammers are ancient symbols of constructive power, and are also useful for vanquishing threats to peace.
