Rare even in their home plane, the dastardly Louse Macronid appears bipedal and man-like at first, but a third set of taloned limbs plus two whip-like appendages make it distinctly alien.

Its physical attacks come at a blistering pace, redering terrible amounts of damage. First come two sickle-shaped pincers (2-8 each) which can sever as a SWORD OF SHARPNESS. Next come the two lashing tentacles (4-16), and any strike can hit targets surrounding the beast at all sides.

The Lice are among the more religious of the Insect-men races, offering human and lesser Macronid sacrifices to the Debilitator on regular bases. More than half the entire population of Lice lair within his mighty hive and serve as his favorite warriors.
