Nature DC 12:Kanks are hive insects that can be tamed and trained. Spitters specialize in collecting organic forage and producing nectar that nourishes other kanks. Soldiers have vicious mandibles that help defend the tribe.
Every Kank hive has a brood queen. This lethargic creature does little beside produce kank eggs. A brood queen is unable to defend herself from attack, and she has little actual control over the hive. She relies on soldiers to defend her and spitters to produce food.
