Most contact between The Ancients and extraterrestrials happened in remote backwoods locales far removed from civilization...

...but sometimes, even bustling metropolises were overrun...


The hyper-aggressive bluetooths are shaggy beasts with brawny, knuckle-walking builds almost identical to Ancient apes.  Their hides are as black as the cosmic void, and their only distinguishing features are radiant, electric-blue eyes.  But those aren't eyes at all...they're jutting, glowing canines!  And behind those canines lie row after row of luminescent teeth!

Bluetooths lack any obvious external sensory organs, and are seemingly blind and deaf. However, they curl back their lips and "sniff" for targets, apparently operating purely on olfactory input with no disadvantageous affects.

The creatures are amazingly nimble, and combine acrobatics and bounding momentum to steamroll targets full-bore, inflicting an additional +1d6 damage per attack while in motion. And bluetooths' mighty jaws shatter the thickest protective gear, treating victims wearing anything but powered armor as if their ACs were +3 worse.

Despite their wholly non-reflective fur and penchant for lurking in the shadows, bluetooths only Surprise on a 1-3 on 1d6, due to their vocalizations and penchant for baring their teeth before attacking.  Ranged attacks against them suffer a -3 To Hit penalty.

Bluetooths have a bizarre method of propagation.  A single meteoroid falls upon a planet's surface, and "hatches" a smaller, nigh-hairless, brown, ivory-toothed specimen [4 HD, 1d6 / 1d6 / 1d8 damage] that is presumed to be female.  She marks anything—and anyone—with which she has contact with a pheromonal chemical detectable only by UV sensors.  Even deceased females discharge this substance, and any handling / moving of the corpses spreads it further.  Hours later, dozens of additional meteoroids fall, each birthing a standard male bluetooth that unerringly homes in on the (living or dead) female...and the "anythings and anyones" that she touched...
