Smelly, bloated, and repulsive, the Crepitus (singular Crepitus) are one of the less loved races of the galaxy. They are also one of the most hideous, their skin usually coated in a sticky slime and their sagging skin lacking distinct shape or features. They are blobish humanoids who have survived this long only because their physiology is extremely resistant to many things which would kill a member of most other races. They also possess incredible regenerative abilities, due in part to the fact that most of their internal organs can serve multiple functions. There have been rare cases where certain Crepitus have continued living despite losing 6 of their 9 core organs.

Organization & Culture
Most Crepitus are simple minded, often turning to lives which let others direct them with little thought on their own part (like the military or factory work) or common thuggery, scraping by on whatever money they can scare out of others. Generally, they are on the fringes of society because of their bizarre appearance, poor social skills, and horrid smell. Thankfully for the rest of the galaxy, the Crepitus reproduce at a very slow rate, so they will likely never rise to a place of dominance in the galaxy.
