The gidapede is the larval form of one of the several silicon based giant space or asteroid worms. They are often found on asteroids, planetoids or within space hulks. These creatures vary in size, ranging from about 8 feet to 20 feet in length, and have millions of tiny electromagnetically charged legs that that allow them to move very quickly across almost any surface. Gigapedes, like most silicon based life, need no air and can tolerate extreme cold. They feed on pure energy and are often attracted to spaceships and other vehicles and devices that emit high energy signals. Although they are not carnivorous, gigapedes are extremely aggressive and attack by lashing out with their sharp mandibles. In addition to any damage caused by the bite, the gigapede delivers a strong electrical discharge with the bite that causes an additional 1d8 damage and can short circuit unshielded equipment and devices. A successful save vs. energy blast results in damage being halved.
