This six-limbed insectiod has a body structure similar to that of a praying mantis.
Xixchil are five foot tall bipeds with four arms. One set is a pair of hook-like blades, the other is a set of smaller, delicate blades for detail work. They have no hand-like manipulators. Their exoskeleton is often upgraded through surgical modification, and may contain gems and precious metals. Their overriding philosophy of "survival of the fittest" leads xixchil to improve themselves through these modifications. Xixchil speak Common and their own language.
Xixchil attack with their primary forelimbs or with any weapons they may have attached in their place. (These weapons are identical in function to those listed in the Player's Handbook, but cannot be disarmed.) Xixchil also often harden their exoskeletons with precious metals and gems, giving them a higher natural armor bonus. This natural armor bonus can go as high as +9. (See Xixchil Body Manipulation for more information on these modifications.)
