The Yax are a native to the planet Garfel. This pasty-skinned alien race is distinguished by its portly body and loose, pallid skin. The head of a Yax was conical in shape, with a crown of horns on the brow and another set of horns at the point. The wide mouth of the Yax was dominated by large, fang-like upper teeth, and sat below a small nose and two bulbous eyes. The nervous system of an individual Yax was more similar to that of a flatworm than to most other humanoid races, and they had the ability to regenerate lost limbs if necessary. This gave them a certain bravado on the battlefield, where Yax are known to be fanatical in their attacks. The Yax are remarkable in their adaptations to their homeworld, although they were not technologically advanced. Their cities were delicate structures built from cast iron, giving them an underlying strength despite their appearance. Most Yax transportation is in the form of domesticated schingas. One interesting aspect of the Yax civilization was their use of gemstones to indicate power. Rather than displaying them on pieces of jewelry, most Yax had gemstones implanted in their bodies near vital organs as a form of status symbol.
