The cancuns are close relative to the thri-kreens, rather like the derro are to the dwarves. They are shorter, though, usually no higher than 1 meter and 20 centimeters at the most, and are of a mottled brown colour. Their main distinguishing feature is their hands, which are grown together and forms one large claw, which they skillfully use as a weapon. This makes it hard for them to wield ordinary weapons. They can separate their hands if they wish, but the process is painful. The frail body of a cancun is covered with a tough exoskeleton.

Like the thri-kreen, cancuns live a nomadic life. They reproduce quickly, but their habit of constantly fighting each other for rulership keeps their overall number in check. Cancuns are known as a evil and malicious race who have been known to toy with their defeated enemies before slaying them. They need very little reason for attacking anyone, and none at all for attacking thri-kreens which they hate deeply. The thri-kreens return the feeling completely, and the past wars between these two races are the bloodiest and cruelest seen in Icesus. Luckily the cancuns living in the normal society with other races have learned to control their temper.

Cancuns have the race ability of blinding their opponents by raking the forehead and the eyes of the foe. Also they can combine their two hands into a powerful large claw. They have harder exoskeleton than most of the other races.
