The musclebound Schlexx hail from the planet Congillee in the Xeeboe star system, which is part of the Xeeb sector which includes Michhin, the famous and dreaded prison world surrounded by its 15 fixed place orbs, and three of Savvakk's outer moons - Kerl, O'ol'o II, and Vfoybledniss.
Schlexx are often said to be a cross between a Orgor and a Bradooniuu, but with 6 arms instead of 12, with the addition of a rather unusual pointed beak with serrated tiny teeth and small black eyes.
About the height of a Totzi Tree (4 meters to Earth people), the Schlexx sort of lumber around because of their large upper bodies, naked except for a small white ceremonial loin cloth that they are clothed with by their parents and then honour bound to wear through their long lives.
To offworlders, Schlexx always appear to be grinning and drooling with anticipation, which they are - anticipating that is, but not grinning. A grin on a Schlexx is a sign of extreme anger.
Of course, if they are fed adequately, they will be in good spirits, but also they're very lethal which is why they're often used as guards on Congillee, which has a lot of prisons in the form of internment camps. They have a particular zest for what they do, which tends to be guarding things, which their many small eyes allow them to do with particular skill. In a way, they have eyes like our "fly" from the Sol system, multitudinous and always scanning.
Schlexx wield a large handled axe called a T'oa, which requires all three hands to grip it, and they are very adept at swinging it around. In fact, there is a martial art among the Schlexx called Carvaj which is a bit like juggling, but mostly it involves the rapid swinging of the axe, which can be very fast and often deadly if you are anywhere nearby.
Schlexx sometimes they also carry around a Jelthibla, which is a bladed boomerang that they are very good at throwing at escapees. They general don't carry any sort of gun or laser weapon requiring trigger action.
They have claws on all of their hands and toes, and those claws are rather sharp, although their skin overall is somewhat scaly, but they are more human than reptile.
Their skin is hard and very difficult to cut, and they have been living on Congillee doing what they do for at least 1 million years. They tend to fear nothing and live for on average 2000 years, in human time.
Their axes, or T'oa, are often found to be dull from never getting them sharpened, and hence they often end up simply bludgeoning prisoners with them rather than slicing them.
They aren't a specifically violent race, but due to the nature of their environment, they have a sort of relish for doing what they do, which is guarding things and sometimes chasing people down.
For the record, Congillee is a planet barren and covered in cracks. It's about the size of our Earth, but generally it's a desert world, with some savannahs here and there like Africa. But unlike earth, the deserts are just barren rock, not really sandy. There are lots of deep fissures in the planet, which is why it's full of catacombs where people live, and where lots of nefarious things happen.
Most activity on Congillee is below the surface. It's sort of like Arrakis from Dune if you've ever read it, without the sand. It's hot, and people hide in caves or underground. There is the odd city. There are a lot of huge cliffs, like super big cliffs, and some cities are on the sides of those cliffs.
There is one sort of oasis section on the planet on the very south pole, and it's like going to Rinmwsom's Kingdom on Daxsis. Congillee's southern realms are a hub in this star system for vacationers. It's also an island surrounded by a deep fissure, and guarded by over 14 million Schlexx.
There is also a large religion on Congillee called the Mayii, which is basically akin to a druid. Some Schlexx are Mayii, and wear red robes, and of course their tiny loin cloth.
