The firaxan shark, or firaxa, was a fierce underwater creature that inhabited the seas of Manaan. They were extremely deadly and were known to attack anyone who dared to swim in their waters.
It was believed that the firaxa and the Selkath were distant cousins, both descended from the Progenitor. This would explain why the firaxan sharks did not attack Selkath in the water, despite no compelling reason to deviate from their normal vicious predation. Both species were also affected similarly by the distress of the Progenitor when her territory was invaded. She emitted a signal which drove the Selkath mad and made both species much more aggressive.
Firaxa were known to be weak to sonic pulses, so some deep-sea explorers carried sonic emitters while walking around the dangerous ocean floor. Scientists working at Hrakert StationRevan were developing a repellent to keep the firaxa at bay while they conducted their research, and a small amount of the toxin was available to as a possible method for dealing with the Progenitor. He chose not to poison the great beast, however.
BEHIND THE SCENES
If Revan chose the dark side option he could have killed the scientists and used the poison on the Progenitor but as a result he would have been banned from Manaan by the judges.

VARIANTS (These have no source, they were done for fun)
Many tourists have lost loved ones and group members due to unexplained disappearances. The Selkath themselves act indifferent, having a dislike of newcomers to their world who are not welcome. many rumors persist of Firaxan Sharks coming out of the waters and stealing people away. Such rumors are usually dismissed as the BS they probably are. Yet, it does not explain the odd teeth marks left in unlikely places, the blood trail leading to open waters or airlocks, or the watery flipper marks that lead away from said water in the first place. Perhaps the Progenitor has begun breeding a new form of the Firaxan Sharks...
The Flopper's abilities are the same as the normal Firaxan Sharks, except as noted below...
