nexu

Arena Beast

Details

Description

A fierce and agile predator, the nexu was one of a trio of deadly beasts unleashed by the Geonosians upon Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the execution arena. The nexu's broad face was split by a terrifying tooth-filled maw, and four eyes glinted from atop its spade-shaped head. Its wiry, supple muscles were visible beneath its fine coat, and sharp curving quills lined its spine. A naked, forked prehensile tail trailed it, aiding in balance, and its arms and legs terminated in large curved claws.

The nexu zeroed in on Padmé Amidala, who had partially escaped her bonds and climbed up her execution pillar. Mostly safe from its reach, Padmé was able to user her own chains and shackles to stun the beast. Though sustaining a glancing slash of the nexu's claws, Padmé was able to kick the wind out of the animal, momentarily stunning it.
