The Lhimp (Taxonomically Callidus scutulis; dubbed Curl-ups by Humans) are a large, bipedal species, known for their cunning and willingness to kill for sport as well as food. They are strictly carnivorus by choice.
The Lhimp have plagued their society with civil wars for decades, and some of their species had recently joined the Interstellar Union, while others were indoctrinated into the opposing Galactic Confederation as an act of civil rebellion. They have the ability to roll themselves into a "wheel" similar to Earth's armadillo, where they are then capable of transporting themselves by expertly stabilizing and rolling around. This may be utilized as an offensive or defensive measure.
While a Tier 3 society, most civilians lead very primitive lives with the absence of modern technology. They still hunt for live food, and do so in packs.
