The Husnock are a race of stocky, pachydermoid bipeds with long, trunk-like snouts, and large floppy ears. Husnocks have a keen sense of smell to help them forage for food, able to sense food up to two kilometers away. This is an adaptation to their planet's harsh climate and short growing season, which made food supplies scarce. Husnocks also had hearing that extended well into the subsonic range. Naturally, their twin obsessions were food and music, and their suction-cupped fingers were suitably adapted to both pastimes: while able to absorb food through their finger tips, they were also exceptional organists. Off world, many Husnocks found success as master chefs or musicians. They were handicapped in their business affairs by their obsession with food, however, sometimes accepting otherwise unfavorable contracts when promised enough to eat.
