They are tall, red humanoids, known for their great strength, high resistance to physical damage and weakness against magic damage. Some battle alphas are furred, others are not. They are 14 spans (10' 6" ; 3,2m) and weigh 400 stones (5600 lbs ; 2540kg). They also hear less than humans, but they see better.
They are described as moderately intelligent due to having a high mental refinement, being able to process three-stage directions and to, sometimes, prevent rogue status using reason, and to having minor tool use capability, although they have small brains compared to their size and they are only capable of crude speech. Moreover, some battle alphas have even been both known to create tribes (Geneforge 5, Southwest Okavano & Geneforge 1, Freeplace) and build fortifications with trenches, doors and even build wooden floors, when left to their own devices (Geneforge 1, Freeplace).
