The Chiggnash were a sentientspecies that resembled scorpions. The species had the ability to control the minds of other beings, and sometimes used that faculty to rapidly accumulate an expendable force of "warrior drones." At least some Chiggnash formed criminal extortion rings. Among bounty hunters, it was acknowledged that due to their control mind ability, special tactics were required to confront Chiggnash. For instance, an electrified smart-harpoon was an inappropriate weapon as it would soon short out against so many warrior drones. Similarly, a blaster would be of only temporary use against their hordes.
