Jade Walker (Creature) Synopsis[edit]

The Jade Walker is a tall, green, mostly bipedal herbivore that has a stocky, blocky body, reminiscent of a crystalline robot or powersuit.

Jade Walker (Creature) Physiology & Ecology[edit]

It has green skin, which seems to give the creature extra energy from photosynthesis. It moves slowly, lumbering like a giant sloth. For such an ungainly-looking creature with jagged-looking claws, it has a gentle grasp.

Jade Walker (Creature) Diet & Trophics[edit]

A Jade Walker eats vines and small shrubs. Although they do get along in groups, jade walkers generally work alone to protect food supplies. Because of their selective eating habits they are encountered in orchards or forests.

As Jade Walkers can be trained to seek out and consume arboreal parasites, such as mistletoe and its ilk, they are a useful sort of tree shepherd.

Interstellar travelers may encounter them tending hydroponics bays on large ships or stations.

The intelligence of these naturally reclusive creatures is now being examined in great detail by the IISS.
