The Thousand Touches
Kacht-ta (The Thousand Touches) is one of the Thri-kreen warlords now demanding his people be given a nation of equality among the rest of the cave dwellers in Infra. He is called The Thousand Touches because he can hit his foes unnaturally fast, even by Thri-kreen standards. Thri-kreen, like most insects, have multiple limbs, and are therefore worrisome fist-fighters, but Kacht-ta puts most of them to shame. Through brute force he has beaten the champions of outlying tribes (a practice HE alone began) into submission and spared them. This has led to absorption of other tribes into his own.
