Gellbeasts, or Wardogs as they were also known were semi-intelligent creatures native to Gellefon which could grow to roughly 2.4 meters tall. They could be extremely vicious when hunting or when pushed into it. To those they bonded with—such as the Human settlers of Gellefon—they could be amazingly gentle and affectionate. Because of this, several of the creatures were used by the Imperial forces which were garrisoned on the planet. When fighting, they liked to leap at their opponents and rake them with their sharp claws. Once they got closer to their target, they would use their bite to finish the battle quickly.
