Kruthiks are chitinous insect-like hunters that form small hives underground. They use their superior numbers to overwhelm and devour all other nearby creatures. They possess excellent night-vision and tough chitinous armor. Each kruthik has a pair of front legs which are sharp and curved, serving as biological blades the kruthik uses in combat. Kruthiks also possess a pair of strong mandibles and a vicious, acidic bite.A kruthik hive is often lead by a kruthik hive mother, an enormous kruthik with the ability to spit acid.
