Blindsight: Anx have exceptionally poor eyesight, and instead use sense organs along their crests, knees, and elbows to “smell” the world around them. Communication at a Distance: Anx speak in a booming, low-frequency language that other Anx can hear up to five kilometers away.
Increased Hand-to-Hand Damage: Due to their physiology, Anx characters add +1D to their Strength score when rolling their hand-to-hand damage.
Fin Cloaks: The skin and fins of an Anx change colors to reflect their emotions, making an Anx’s basic mood easy to decipher. As a result, Anx characters often wear fin cloaks that make it more difficult for others to interpret their emotions. An Anx without a fin cloak suffers a -2D penalty to all Bargain and Con skill checks.

Background: Horox Ryyder was an Anx who served as a senator for the Raioballo sector in the Senate of the Galactic Republic. Respected and loved by the entire Republic, he had a quiet and soothing demeanor and was well known for his patience and insight. In a career spanning over five decades, Ryyder traveled the galaxy to visit constituents when not on the Republic capital of Coruscant and made many allies in the Senate. He supported the candidacy of Senator Finis Valorum for Supreme Chancellor and was pleased when Valorum began to tax trade routes.
Ryyder attended a session of the Senate in 32 BBY in which Queen Padmé Amidala of Naboo called for a Vote of No Confidence in Valorum, which succeeded. Under the new chancellor, Sheev Palpatine, the Republic suffered a series of crises over the next ten years. Exhausted and depressed, Ryyder eventually retired from his position several weeks before the Clone Wars began in 22 BBY. In retirement, he once again set out to travel to the worlds he had represented, but, as a great opera lover, continued to visit the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant, where he was present in 19 BBY during a performance of Squid Lake.
