The kirithin was an amphibious predator found throughout planets in the Outer Rim Territories. Encased in heavy, protective scales, the creature's long front fins were used both for locomotion on land and for hunting prey. It had a feeler-like organ on its head to attract prey, the morsel would then be pulled into the kirithin's waiting maw and sliced with rows of razor-sharp fangs.
