Spined Rhodox

Spined Rhodox is a close relative to the Grox and though it is not as prevalent, it is still common in many systems throughout the galaxy. Unfortunately, most of those worlds it is found on contain dense Ork populations. Although the Rhodox is not readily domesticated by the foul Greenskins, an interesting relationship has formed between the creature and the Orks. It seems that certain Ork Tribes have adopted the hunting of the Rhodox as a form of initiation for potential clan leaders. Those Orks who survive such a dangerous encounter and return with a set of the Rhodox's horns as a trophy, are highly revered in Ork society and are often rewarded with the elite position of Nob or even Warboss within the ranks of their clan.[1]
