a character in “Planet Y97S”, as played by Incognito

Description

Gi'Noxtagrul, who is affectionately called Nox by most due to the amount of guttural sounds required to pronounce his name correctly, is large even by Hikagoi standard. The greenskinned beast is 9 foot 3 inches and weighs 2670 pounds. Nox is missing one front tooth, and his left fang has been broken in half. He also has a brass ring through his nose, as is customary for many of his race. Gi'Noxtagrul is bound by thick ropes of muscle, showing a life of hard labour. His dark green skin is riddled with minor scars from throughout his life, most received from either mating contests or the harsh manual labour that makes up all Hikagoi's lives.

Personality

Nox does not display a personality that most other races would associate with. He is simple, more animalistic in his emotions. While generally friendly, Nox can quickly shift from wanting to hug you, to wanting to rip your head off. Hikagoi are often associated with beasts of burden and just like a beast, if provoked, they will react violently.

Equipment

A rebreathing mask that allows him to breath in space for limited periods of time (2 hours per filter). Crude and tattered clothes fashioned from various leathers and skins. A miner's pick, super-sized for a Hikagoi.

History

While the species is smart-ish, the Hikagoi (Hi-ca-goy) have small brains with limited capacity for complex reasoning. They are creatures of memory and can be taught to do almost any basic manual laboring task. A perfect example of the Hikagoi brain would be the following; A Hikagoi knows it cannot breath in space, but it has absolutely no idea why (attempts to educate the Hikagoi have been made to no avail). This is why most of the surviving Hikagoi are miners or other high-stress manual labour jobs. The race of Hikagoi have a thick hide resistant to most natural elements that varies in coloration from a bright neon green, to a deep forest green and everything in between. They have massive bodies, stand from 7 to 9 ft in height, and have an average weight of around 2000 pounds. All Hikagoi are treated more like animals then actual people. The 'greenskins' (a racial slang considered highly offensive by the Hikagoi), are often kept on massive mining ships, captained or owned by a company of another race, in groups of around 200. These ships treat the Hikagoi as little more then slave labour, often keeping them in cramped conditions with limited food and water. Many say that the Hikagoi brain is too underdeveloped to be considered a sentient race, and are simply savage beasts, but many disagree; however no actions have been taken to secure Hikagoi rights or working condition standards. The cultural customs of the Hikagoi have maintain relative anonymity, not because they are secretive, but because very few have actively taken an interest in seeking them out. A few books cover the subject, most notably Gwendolyn H. Kelper's A Study of a Green Mind in which she covered mating rituals and contests, discovering that the darker skinned Hikagoi are considered the most attractive.
