    The throgs (mixture of "Tron" and "Hog") are a pigmen-like race and faction in Starbound, that roam the universe in search for, well, something to eat. And for their diner they'll munch anything that isn't fast enough to escape their hungry mouths. Even you could end on their menu card.

    Throgs are a humanoid pig species. They're fat, scruffy and short-legged with an overall obese look. They're relatively small and pretty bloated with a short neck that is nearly enclosed by fat.

    - IDEOLOGY -
    These beastmen follow a specific "religion". Their leader, the Mighty Blubberbutt, is omnipotent commander and infallible gourmet. To satisfy his hunger for all sorts of crazy meals and snacks, they travel all across the universe, killing everyone that stands in their way. Their is a throgish saying: "If I can't eat it, it's not existant to me.".

    For weapons, throgs use over-sized forks with a head that is energized with electricity. This way, they can barbecue their victims right after they killed them, eating them off the fork. Also, there are versions of the forks that directly shoot lightning bolts..
    The armor is a homage to the movie saga "Tron", resembling the well-known style. It's quite funny to see such fat and ugly guys in a skintight dress, where the belly is already swelling out.

    Maybe more to come!

    I like the idea, perhaps an allusion to Star Wars could be made; Gamorian Guards. They could be guarding Blubberbutt a big slug-like monstrosity.

    Perhaps depending on their ranking in Throg society depends on their utensil of choice; lower Throg-peons would have to use either their hands or something (frying pans?) working up through the army of spork commandos up to knife commanders and generals with rotating spaghetti forks.

    They could also have hoover-like mechs that "suck up" things before them.

    And of course, the Stereotypical "Fat Man/Pigs Hoverboard" As a mount for higher rank ones...
