Summary

Corra'bo
The migrational baboon-like animal of Khorrum, they spend only a few months out in the savanna a year before returning to the mountains to escape the heat. Normally jovial pranksters, the alpha males are extremely aggressive with little provocation.

Physiology

Arachnid in origin, the Corra'bo share a distant relationship with the Brukk'da; a fact that doesn't stop the larger spiders from eating their smaller simian cousins. Most Corra'bo are the size of chimpanzees, but the males can sometimes grow to the size of a gorilla. Despite their spider origins, they have only two eyes; they also have four chelicerae that act as their upper mouth and jaw. They have two pairs of legs that provide very little locomotion, it is the large pair of arms that are used primarily for movement as the walk on their knuckles. These large arms are also used for fighting and have some capacity for manipulation, but it is the smaller pair of arms that are mainly used for dexterous task such as opening shells. Their tail, while prehensile, is mainly used for grabbing rock outcroppings or carrying young, but they have been known to use them for fighting as well. The thick fur that coats their carapace protects them from the colder climates of the non-volcanic mountain tops where they stay for most of the year. But during the winter months, the Corra'bo shed their thick coats and migrate westward into the savannas when they are at their coolest.

Notes

Their main predator is the Brukk'da, but during their migration into the savannas, they run risk of becoming prey for the Ghorrim. Contact with the Mhenuur tends to be friendly, the arachnids may take some food and destroy some property, but for the most part they are viewed as lovable and a few are kept as pets. A few groups of Corra'bo have taken to living in or near Mhenuur settlements year-round, living in gardens and being cared for by the community. Khor'Juhn-dro is known for a particular family of these animals called the Krimb'va that date back generations and have taken a habit of begging and playing for food; in recent years, some have started mimicking musicians by banging stolen drums or rocks and sometimes flutes.
