Hylosi are one of the most successful species that have expanded through the galaxies. They are bipeds with a pair of thick legs to support their bulky mass. At the tips of their limbs are horned growths: sturdy hooves at their feet and strong nails on their blunt hands. Their hide includes a thick protective layer of blubber, making them well suited to colder climates but often uncomfortable in warmer ones. These large beings are well developed omnivores, with an extremely efficient digestive system. Whatever they eat they use, or store in their blubber for later. Their snouted heads house their famously clever and devious minds. Hylosi are well known as cunning beings.

Traditional Hylosus society is based on extremely opportunistic principles. This, along with a natural leadership talent (or bullying talent - depending on perspective), makes them a race of very effective businessmen. Much of intergalactic business is based on the ruthlessly materialistic entrepreneurs of the Hylosus race, as well as hundreds of minor wars of conquest.

For humans reading this manual: just imagine typical Hylosi as somewhat obese pigs that walk upright and act like Niccolò Machiavelli.
