A mantis-like race of insectoids that fight like Samurai warriors. They have four arms: the bottom two have six-fingered hands while the top are customizable but usually broad, flat, and sharp like machetes. Four slender legs help them stay balanced in any position. A 90-degree bend at the center of their body brings the front half of their body vertical (much like a Centaur). They have no bones; instead, an extremely hard exoskeleton protects their delicate innards. Their heads mimic several insects such as ants, mantis, and even some arachnids. Their upper forearms can be removed and replaced with other types more suited to crushing, stabbing, etc.
Carapace can change color in specific situations; battle stances designate certain attacks; no artwork otherwise.
Woven grass nests; some are multilevel but most are single-occupant dwellings.

Two of their arms can be destroyed and re-grown into any weapon or tool they need in any situation. The power of their technology also grants the Nincaida quick life and resource regeneration. Even during combat, they are able to adapt and heal themselves more quickly than their opponents can react.
