The 3-eyed, 1' diameter voxclaws are terrestrial crustaceans found in all but the coldest climes.  They build elaborate communities out of mud and debris, complete with underground tunnels and spires as tall as treetops.

Voxclaws instinctively comprehend and articulate all spoken dialects (including animal cries), and grasp written languages with ease.  Accordingly, they are masterful orators, diplomats, translators, and guides...and the more unsavory members of their species become spies, snake-oil peddlers, revival preachers, grifters, and politicians.

Being considered "as charming as a voxclaw" is one of the greatest compliments one can receive in the Mutant Future.
