The Nungiirtok, sometimes derisively called Nungies by humans, are a warlike species of alien under the rule of the Sh'daar. They are generally used as ground troops, and are notable as one of the few species encountered by humanity to be even vaguely humanoid.

Description Edit

Anatomy & Physiology Edit

Nungiirtok usually wear heavy black powered armor, concealing the details of their appearance. Beneath the armor, they have a vaguely humanoid shape, standing about three meters tall. Unlike humans, they have digitigrade legs and no obvious heads; the brain, mouth, and sensory organs are sunken into the torso. In place of eyes, Nungiirtok have ganglia that detect only orange and red light. Because of this, Nungiirtok are presumably orange or red in color. They are always encountered in their sealed armor, implying that they are unable to breathe human-friendly atmospheres.

Kobolds Edit

Nungiirtok are always encountered with aliens called Kobolds. Kobolds are vaguely spider-like creatures roughly the size of dogs, and around half a dozen accompany every Nungiirtok. It is unclear whether they are combat drones or a symbiotic organism of some sort, although the latter is considered more likely.

Technology Edit

Nungiirtok are never shown operating spacecraft. However, they are known to possess powered armor, and wield weapons called "flamers." Flamers appear to be plasma weapons that fire blasts of burning hydrogen.
