A very inquisitive race that, despite their primitive look, possesses knowledge of using and developing technology. However, they rarely produce any devices, vehicles, or any equipment whatsoever, because they find it a lot easier to steal it from other races and then learn to manipulate it. They are of a slim physical appearance, which lets them hide in unexpected locations and wait for their chance to either attack their target or pilfer whatever they might consider of value. The Red Faction assigns them as scouts who explore new worlds and prospect whether it’s worth sending a fleet there to harvest the fauna for food.
On one occasion, the Arxian thought-materialization scientist managed to create an Arwen in the laboratory. The inspiration came from his brother’s horror novel. As soon as the creature came to life, it destroyed everything it got in touch with and killed its creator, then went on a rampage around the city.
