The Styrax were a violent warlike species inhabiting the world Belga-432. Having driven the majority of their world's wildlife extinct, the Styrax turned to cannibalism. As such, they evolved so as to be born ready to fight and kill. When a merchant ship landed on the planet to gather ore from it's mineral rich crust, the Styrax promptly slaughtered the ship's crew and began observing the intricacies of the ship's mechanics. Now the Galaxy would have to deal with spaceflight capable Styrax.
