Trox

From 1d4chan
He's on his way to go bust up a chiffarobe.

Trox are Pathfinder's response to Umber Hulks not being OGL. They are big beefy beetle people native to Nchak, one of Liavara's moons. Some ages ago, an asteroid ship of theirs crashed through the surface of Golarion into the Underdark Darklands. The Trox onboard were enslaved by Duergar, who bred them to be even bigger and beefier dumb brutes.

Starfinder reveals that they used to be eight-legged arthropodic animals until the goddess Hylax uplifted them into their current form. As such most Trox are devout worshippers of Hylax, and their homeworld serves as the center of Hylax worship. Despite their brutish builds, they are actually quite a peaceful race. They are ruled over by mysterious beings called the "Philosopher Worms of Nchak", who are also related to Hylax in some way. Also, the Trox on Nchak are aware of what happened to their crashed ship on Golarion, making them vehement opponents of slavery (which they already were, being Hylax worshippers).
