Chenyromas range in intelligence from those that are dull and beast-like to highly praised explorers and pioneers. The more intelligent ones prefer to walk on two legs, but regressed, wild Chenyromas use their muscular arms to propel themselves across landscapes. Fortius, while being a member of the Conpiom Guard, used this technique in a fight to the death against Praepediti to launch himself at his opponent.
All Chenyromas see by echolocation and are covered in a natural silver shell. They also have spikes at several points on their body which can inject attackers with a poisonous substance if impaled.
