Perhaps the most well-known slaves of the Hutts, the fierce and humorless Niktos of Kintan have served their masters for thousands of years, though not always with unwavering loyalty. Hardy and stoic, the five Nikto subspecies are a common sight throughout Hutt Space and the Outer Rim Territories. Niktos have varied abilities at character creation determined by their specific subspieces. Kajain’sa’niktos, called Red Niktos, have ruddy skin ranging from light orange to red and sport small horns on the brow and chin. They have abilities related to their natural resilience. Kadas’sa’niktos, called Green Niktos have scaly green skin and a fringe of bony ridges terminating in small horns around the eyes and chin. At home in the forests and temperate coastal regions, they tend to climb into the trees and have abilities around their climbing skill and claws to use as gripping aids or weapons. Esral’sa’niktos, or Mountain Niktos, are bluish-gray and evolved in the moutainous hinterlands of Kintan. Prominent facial fins protrude from their cheeks, providing them with excellent hearing and assisting with heat regulation. These Niktos begin the came with skills and talents related to their survival outdoors. Gluss’sa’niktos, or Pale Niktos, call the rocky islands home. They have white-gray skin, tiny horns around their eyes, and small facial fins, and are born sailors and swimmers, with character talents and skills to reflect their islander natures. Finally, M’shento’su’niktos hail from the southern hemisphere of their homeworld, earning them the name Southern Niktos. They have cream, white, yellow, or orange skin and lack the horns and prominent ridges common to the other Niktos. Instead, they have evolved long, well developed breathing tubes on the backs of their necks. In addition to facilitating respiration, the tubes allow the Southern Niktos to perceive ultrasonic vibrations, allowing them to begin the game with enhanced Perception and Vigilance dice pools. Niktos can be found in the Lords of Nul Hutta rulebook.
