The Hutt Gambit
The lylek is the most dangerous predator indigenous to the planet of Ryloth, one of the few creatures able to survive in the harsh Bright Lands. Lyleks are tall beasts protected by a thick exoskeleton and armed with sharp, spear-footed limbs, powerful jaws, and overpowering tentacles. Few creatures are able to survive on the stifling, arid surface of Ryloth; the lyleks are aggressive and deadly and prey on each other when no other food source is available. They are known to crawl deeply into the inhabited caves and threaten city dwellers. In addition to their viciousness and strength, the lyleks’ tail tentacle is also tipped with a poisonous barb. The poison itself is not deadly, but it is disabling enough to prevent most creatures from escaping.
