Spitters (AKA The People, Krachnak, Dung Suckers)
They are short, stout, black leathery beings that can curl up into a lump. They can extrude webbing from their hands and can defend themselves by spitting noxious venom or swelling up like a needle blowfish. The have sharp little teeth and they eat fecal matter or rotten/moldy organics. They do not find this in the least bit humiliating. They consider all the lower lifeforms that process their nutrients for them in the same way human hunters and farmers consider their animals to be machines that convert energy from plant to meat form.
Calling themselves “The People”, these little guys have closed off almost all relationships with outside races. They see all other species except for the giants as lower animals. Generally pursuing knowledge, they build their societies around gathering information. Working secretly to build libraries of data as well as ‘herding’ various species around with a grand, thousand-year-plan. Most other races don’t realize or care about their intelligence or pursuits, they just like that their waste is disposed of. So there is a tenuous relationship with most cultures.
On their home planet, spitters were originally parasites on the Majismontem, but when the Giants advanced technologically enough the spitters were genetically modified to be servants to them. After settling on Talifar they grew in numbers and as the Majismontem left their farming and spread around the planet, many spitter colonies emerged independent. But they are still genetically attracted to the Majismontem with a kind of familial bond, so they generally consider it an honor to serve as a Majismontem groomer
