The Horned Viper is the human designation for the Skuvian fighter for which the literal translation is “fast as a cell ball to make female drop eggs, more guns then uncle with paranoia towards lead circle”.
It's a real name might make most people giggle, but not if they end up facing down a Horned Viper in combat, they are fast, maneuverable and armed to the teeth.
Skuvian's have proven to be very similar in character to humans, capable of great love and creativity but with territorial tendencies and distrust of anyone different to themselves.
Their history is therefore similar to our own with escalating levels of conflict culminating in five planetary wars that involved every group and territory.
Their warlike nature is reflected in their amazing weaponry and they are second only to humanity as interplanetary arms dealers.
