Alien to most people of Athas, these desert-dwelling creatures live for the thrill of the hunt.[DSCS:22]
Thri-Kreen are humanoid mantids with 4 arms, though 2 arms are smaller and weaker than the others. The thri-kreen share no interest in other races other than for hunting and therefore are usually a neutral alignment. Although they are savages, they share a hive mind and can communicate telepathically with others in their tribe. The thri-kreen have an average lifespan of 30 years, however this short time is counteracted by the fact that thri-kreen do not require sleep and can live out all moments of their 30 years.
The main weapons of the thri-kreen consist of the gythka, a pole-arm with a maple leaf shaped blade on each end, and the chatkcha, a large, three-sided throwing star 12 inches in diameter. All their weapons are poisoned by dasl, a poison made from their venomous saliva which is altered by the zik-thok plant in an unknown matter since it is a secret known only to thri-kreen.
