The Xi'Alpha, commonly referred to as the Stictex, was the most common Xi'Dec sex. Each Xi'Alpha had a cylindrical-shaped body, with a shiny carapace and a set of lacy wings that protruded from a slot in the center of the carapace. On their skulls, they had a set of pincers, twelve optic nerves on prehensile stalks, and six finger-length slots that acted as a nose. During the First Galactic Civil War, a family of seven Stictex traveled to the Imperial prison planet Tol Ado and attended a tour of the facility.
