Kabi'chi are stout and bright. The intense red and deep black patterned skin serve as a warning to any would-be predator of their mutually assured destruction. Upon their consumption the Kabi'chi - and all Hyla - release their potent toxin, taking revenge from within the predator.
Kabi'chi were bred by the Consortium to mass-produce the Hyla toxin for use as a powerful psychedelic. Kabi'chi can further increase their production capacity through pharma and internal mods. Increasing their personal production of the neurotoxin may also increase their personal wealth through peer-to-peer trade within Auxī. This neurotoxin is quite valuable in the virtual marketplace due to its capacity to enhance psionic (PSI) abilities.
Beyond personal production the Kabi'chi now trap and breed toxin producers to genetically modify them. They harvest the optimized breeds for their unique psychedelics. The toxin types are divided into three specialties, neurotoxin. [creating further lanes of unique item-types in which to sell.]
History and OverviewEdit
The initial rise of the Hyla within their jungle can be accredited to their toxicity. The Hyla would secrete their poison down specific trees - the poison would mimic the trees sap, the favorite food-source of many jungle lifeforms - allowing the Hyla to gather the comatose prey. At first these victims were immediately consumed but eventually the Hyla would simply capture their prey and pen them as livestock. With reduced hunting needs the communal Hyla were free to persue crafts and architecture.
Penned and milked regularly like cattle, the Kabi'chi had the worst role of the three Hyla breeds before the revolution. Since then they utilize their optimized production for their own economic gain, even using Consortium tactics to exploit lesser jungle creatures for their unique and valuable organic compounds.
