Halosians were large bipedal, vulture-like creatures. Their cranium was small, and their head had a long, sharp beak. They possessed wings, the spans of which were easily eight feet when fully stretched, but Halosians also had thin arms and articulate claws with which to operate machinery.
Their wings appeared to be vestigial only, as the creatures were seemingly too large to use them for actual flight.
The Halosian society seemed to be a class-oriented one. Each individual's main goal was to "evolve" up the class structure by increasing his or her number of hostile kills (though the opponent may be peaceful). They employed large battleships with weapons that fired energy pulses. Their code allowed mutiny if the captain, or lord, failed, at which point other members of the crew could take charge and evolve themselves. Their vomit was acidic, self-mobile, and highly destructive.
Background informationEditIn 2000, the framework of the Skeksis (featured in the film The Dark Crystal) was reused by the Jim Henson Company to make the Halosians.
