The Male Yeth
The C'thoux are male Yeth, part of the first iteration of the race. They were half of the first of the Yeth races, the other being the Aylith. They aren't as plentiful as the Kthabre, but regardless, whether they serve as slaves or masters, they are zealous and single-minded in their duty.
Anatomy & Morphology
They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two digitigrade legs and an endoskeleton. Their skin is thick and hard, yet it resembles that of molluscs, covered in a slick mucus. They are hairless, and sport multiple boney holes along their body, travelling in lines, originating from their heads and serving as sensory organs. While they have an endoskeleton, the shape of their bones more closely resembles that of an exoskeleton in places like their spines, shoulders, heads and hips, with their skin stretched over and muscles weaving around and underneath.
Genetics and Reproduction
They have intercourse like most mammals do; however, since they're all male they have to reproduce with the Ayliths, which can result in either a C'thoux or an Aylith.
Growth Rate & Stages
The C'thoux have a fast early life cycle. They reach adolescence within seven to eight years and adulthood within thirteen to fourteen. This is due to them being echoes of the Makhai. Their old age is considered to be around the 800-year mark, at which point their skin becomes translucent and drier.
Dietary Needs and Habits
The C'thoux are omnivores, eating anything, even metals and rocks.
They have round heads, with series of holes originating around the back of the cranium, their mouths have a split lower mandible and up to ten long tongues.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
They have an incredible sense of smell, taste and hearing: however, they have no eyesight, all their other sense are on par with most mortal races.
Civilization and Culture
The C'thoux's names are based in their native language of Abyssian.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
The C'thoux are echoes of the Deimos, who emerged in The Abyss around the end of the war. The Abyss is a changing and twisted realm with little in the way of consistent geography so the C'thoux and the rest of the Yeth have little in the way of a homeland; however, they have claimed all of the Abyss and often seek other worlds to dominate, such as Domus, where they most prominently come into conflict with the Tithons.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
The C'thoux tend to act aggressively towards other mortal races, seeing them as alien and strange, on the other hand, other mortal races view them the same, leaving little room for any relational progress between the C'thoux and other mortal races.
