Gristle

Gristles: Gristles evolved on a very high gravity planet. They are quite short (about 4 feet high) and squat – shaped rather like a tree-stump. On their base, they have treads; a bit like a snail’s foot, this sticks strongly to nearly any surface. They are extremely tough: enough so that special medical techniques are needed to treat them. Gristles have 3-fold symmetry: they have 3 arms (but can use only 2 together), and 3 eyes (one between each pair of arms). Although their 360 degree eyesight is perfectly fine, Gristles rely even more so on their extremely well-developed magnetic sense which allows them to sense magnetic fields and any metal parts within a range of several meters. Gristles tend to be hard-working, with very little understanding of “play”, “art” or “beauty” as other species understand them. For this reason, they tend to be rather isolationist. Also, Gristles value self-reliance and are a bit suspicious of technology: not that there’s anything wrong with it, but you wouldn’t want to have to rely on it.
