Shaggy hulks are barrel shaped bipeds, with a carapace of chitinous plates covered with shaggy grey tendrils. They have clawed paws that they use to attack; two large dark green compound eyes; and large, beetle-like mandibles. Those that possess mental powers have a thick, upright horn on the crown of their heads. Although they appear clumsy, having a wobbly gait, they are surprisingly stealthy.
