Akrid Overview Indigenous creatures to the planet, they have adapted to the extremely low temperatures. All Akrid possess the ability to extract a rare mineral from the frozen ground and chemically convert it inside themselves into "Thermal Energy" and use it as their energy source. Humans discovered the Thermal Energy inside the Akrid and fight them for the valuable resource in order to survive in the deadly cold. Name: CHRYATIS Intel: Extremely aggressive. Upon sensing thermal energy traces from any living being other than another Akrid, it immediately attacks the source as a threat that must be eradicated. Once in attack mode, the Chryatis wont stop until all traces of thermal energy are gone. Name: TRILID Intel: Able to fly, these Akrid are weak on their own but attack in swarms to overcome their opponents. Name: DONGO Intel: With an extremely hard outer shell to protect it from attacks, its also able to turn the shell into a weapon by curling into a ball and ramming its foes at high speed.
