The nokkens are among the strangest creatures seen
on Rubi-Ka. It appears to combine aspects of predatory
animals and a large tree. The nokken, and it's lesser
cousin, the fossegrim, are nonetheless considered plants,
because their behavior and structure is more treelike
than animal like, and their movements have the sound
and appearance of bending tree branches. It is unclear
how exactly such a cross could come about, though it
is almost surely related to Omni-Tek genetic experimentation.
Nokkens are slow moving and powerful. They do not have
a very fast attack, as compared to more mobile, animalian
predators. They are, however, more likely than some
large animalian predators to be found in social groups,
and to attack in such groups. So far, the nokkens have
only been found in isolated populations on Rubi-Ka,
far away from most human interference.
