The Okxik (from [[Cursed Speech|Cursed Speech]] ''Ökksyk''), Drædons or Devourers is a bipedal orb creature native to southern [[Dwaia (Land)|Dwaia]] and the [[Plane of Fire|Plane of Fire]]. The Southern Dwaian Okxi are slightly smaller and frequently hairier than their relatives, the Fire Okxik. The two species are closely linked in appearance and genetics, the main differences being their herd size, hunting tactics, appearance, and aggression.  
+
The <b>Okxik</b> (from [[Cursed Speech]] ''Ökksyk''), also known as the <b>Drædon</b> or <b>Devourer</b>, is a bipedal orbicular predator native to eastern [[Dwaia (Land)|Dwaia]] and presumably the [[Plane of Earth]]. Several subspecies of Okxi exist, generally growing larger and hairier as they trend northwest from their origins in [[The Deep Bogh]].
 +
Based on the Devourer's evil energies, naturally destructive nature, and predator status, most zoologists consider it an invasive species of the [[First Plane]].
  
The Okxik has been considered an invasive species by many Dwaian zoologists who have studied the species. This verdict was made based on the Okxi's naturally destructive nature and predator status. The Okxik scares away bird and animal species by marking their territory with their piss and shid and bones from prey. They draw dreadful messages on rocks and skin tapestries that are meant to scare away more intelligent prey.
+
Okxi are feared for their massive maws and asphyxiating toxins left wherever they tread. Their strong spring-like legs allow them to run up to 45 miles per hour and jump quite far for their weight. As aggressive pack hunters, a herd of northeastern Devourers are nearly indomitable for most adventurers.
 
 
As of 2019AP, the Okxik is considered a dangerous and invasive species that should be avoided at all costs and fought back against if possible. The Zoologist Society of Dwaia advised in an article in 2016AP to contact local enforcement if one should see signs of an Okxik tribe. More information can be found on their website.
 
  
 +
Due to the sheer loudness of their home environment, most Okxi are deaf, and curiously incapable of smelling as well. They are quite heavily dependent on their eyesight as a result.
  
 
== Origin ==
 
== Origin ==
The Origin of the Okxi is currently unknown, however, it is known that the species migrated from the Plane of Fire and adapted to the colder climates of Southern Dwaia as seen from the hairy difference from species to subspecies. The smaller size can be attributed to the increase in food and therefore lack of competition. The Okxi herds in Southern Dwaia are bigger as a result of this too.
+
The exact origin of the Okxik is unknown. However, it is believed that the species is one of numerous who have migrated from the Plane of Earth and found a fitting home in the crusty deserts of the eastern [[First Plane]]. This theory is supported by their highly specialized adaptations to other creatures in [[Bogoland]], suggesting that they have all had contact with each other for a very long time.

== Behavior ==
Apart from the more aggressive and competitive Okxi from the Fire Plane, the Okxi share the same behavioral patterns. In terms of herd, the Southern Dwaian Okxik tends to stay together in bigger herds and assign males to hunters and females to nest builders and carers. Because of their smaller size, the Southern Dwaian Okxi also takes part in pack hunting tactics.
+
Okxi will mark their territory with piss and shid and bones from kills, and are also observed to build skin tapestries harbouring dreadful messages, probably intended to scare away more intelligent creatures.
 +
 
 +
Their nests are usually crater-shaped in appearance and are protected with an assortment of layers of prey's skin, bones and rocks, and shid walls. When these nests are threatened the female Okxi will scream out in a horrible fucking noise known as "Hysterical Ass-ripping." Okxi that are particularly DUMMY THICC can, as a defense mechanism, use their rippling rears to generate a shockwave to knock down incoming attackers.

At first Okxi were believed to be incapable of forming coherent sentences. However, upon consumption of a kill, the Okxik has been discovered to stand before anyone who may be observing and proclaim that they "had to do it to 'em". The implications of this has researchers terrified.

The Okxik (from Cursed Speech Ökksyk), also known as the Drædon or Devourer, is a bipedal orbicular predator native to eastern Dwaia and presumably the Plane of Earth. Several subspecies of Okxi exist, generally growing larger and hairier as they trend northwest from their origins in The Deep Bogh. Based on the Devourer's evil energies, naturally destructive nature, and predator status, most zoologists consider it an invasive species of the First Plane.

Okxi are feared for their massive maws and asphyxiating toxins left wherever they tread. Their strong spring-like legs allow them to run up to 45 miles per hour and jump quite far for their weight. As aggressive pack hunters, a herd of northeastern Devourers are nearly indomitable for most adventurers.

Due to the sheer loudness of their home environment, most Okxi are deaf, and curiously incapable of smelling as well. They are quite heavily dependent on their eyesight as a result.

Origin

The exact origin of the Okxik is unknown. However, it is believed that the species is one of numerous who have migrated from the Plane of Earth and found a fitting home in the crusty deserts of the eastern First Plane. This theory is supported by their highly specialized adaptations to other creatures in Bogoland, suggesting that they have all had contact with each other for a very long time.

Behavior

Okxi will mark their territory with piss and shid and bones from kills, and are also observed to build skin tapestries harbouring dreadful messages, probably intended to scare away more intelligent creatures.

Their nests are usually crater-shaped in appearance and are protected with an assortment of layers of prey's skin, bones and rocks, and shid walls. When these nests are threatened the female Okxi will scream out in a horrible fucking noise known as "Hysterical Ass-ripping." Okxi that are particularly DUMMY THICC can, as a defense mechanism, use their rippling rears to generate a shockwave to knock down incoming attackers.

At first Okxi were believed to be incapable of forming coherent sentences. However, upon consumption of a kill, the Okxik has been discovered to stand before anyone who may be observing and proclaim that they "had to do it to 'em". The implications of this has researchers terrified.

Native Okxik

Also referred to as the Arid Okxik or the Bogxik, these predators inhabit the Deep Bogh and generally hunt alone. They are smaller and lighter than the other breed, but even more aggressive. Bogxi are far less social than other Okxi, and the most likely to compete within their own species. This is likely due to the increased interspecial competition and general scarcity of resources in the region. Or maybe they're just assholes idk.

Spookxik

Full article: Spookxik

Upon an Okxik's death under the presence of certain magicks, the Bone contained within the confines of its meat may be imbued with deathly sentience and forced to live again. This unboply abomination is known as a Spookxik. They are much lighter and gain the Persuasion skill, making them even more dangerous than their never-dead brethren.




Here is a list of various other Okxi species that are unidentified or single incidents.

Trivia

Its toes secrete a highly poisonous juice. In fact, this is where the word "toxic" comes from ("toe" + "okxik").

The weight of a Devourer poses a significant threat when they jump great distances. To help mitigate this stress, an Okxik will land on collapsible legs and roll to delay its impact over a longer distance. This is at least one explanation why their legs can fold so tightly into their body and the rough sphericity of the cephalothorax.

According to the SC🅱, any confirmed sightings of an Okxik near a settlement necessitates immediate evacuation, citing biohazardous and potentially cognitohazardous properties. See also: SC🅱-35
