Make Yourself a Monster: Vulcan Stev?
Stev, is definitely not a monster. He is an officer serving aboard the USS Phoenix as such I really couldn’t monsterize myself in that manner. What I did do is anagram Stev the Vulcan and have monsterized two of the more colorful results. I hope that these monsters are useful in your campaign. They have been statted out in Savage Worlds format but can be used with appropriate conversions in any setting.
Shaven Cult Vet– The Shaven Cult are violently opposed to body hair of any sort. Encountering a Vet, or high ranking priest while displaying any body hair is a show way to invite an attack. These cultists will first attempt to forcibly remove your hair. If you comply and let them remove your body hair they will attempt to convert you (opposed role vs spirit).

Velvet Uch Ants – These purpelish ants are 3x the size of normal ants and are so named for the cool and smooth feel to the touch. However touching these ants would not be adviseable. Not only is their bite poisonous but they leach toxins through the velvety hairs covering their bodies. The swarm covers a medium burst template and attacks everyone within the template every round.
Skills: Notice d10
Pace: 10; Parry: 4; Toughness: 7
Bite– Swarms of Uch Ants inflict hundreds of tiny bites every round to their victims hitting automatically and causing 2d4 damage to their victims within the template. Victims must make a Vigor role at -4 due to the poison in the bites
Split– Uch Ants are sufficiently intelligent enough to split into smaller swarms (Small burst templates take the place of the medium template) should the party split up
Swarm– Parry +2 because the swarm is made up of of hundreds of these large ants, cutting and piercing weapons do little to no damage. Area effect weapons work normally. A PC can inflict damage per his/her strength by stomping each round. Uch ants can only be defeated by inflicting damage normally water does not deter them, as Uch Ants are capable swimmers.
