Inox are one of the races of Gloomhaven. It is noted that the word Inox stands for both the singular and plural version of the word. The word is pronounced EYE-nox.

Original Flavor Text

"The Inox are a primitive and barbaric race, preferring to live in small nomadic tribes scattered across the wild meager. There they subsist through hunting and gather, scraping together a meager existence while fighting off the more dangerous creatures of the wilds. What they lack in intelligence and sophistication, they make up for with their superior strength and size, always eager to prove themselves in a challenge. And one should certainly take care in challenging an Inox. Their society does not pay much heed to ethics or morality. For the Inox, it is all about survival – kill or be killed"

Physiognomy and Appearance

Inox are tall, muscular and furry, though the male Inox is a bit smaller than the Female. Their evolution has mainly been based on their lifestyle in harsh cold conditions, explaining the muscular build and the fur.

As well, they have horns coming out of their skull.

Society and Origins

Along with the Vermlings, Inox are one of both societies that are native to the land of Gloomhaven. They come from the North area ("northern than the map"), and it is unknown if there are still other Inox in that area.

The Inox are matriarchal and living in tribes. They do not like Humans, mainly because they took over their land and because they consider Inox to be stupid creatures, only good for their muscles. This is why mainly it is frown upon for any member of their race who join the Human society. They do not hate or attack humans as much as Vermlings however.

This is partly justified, as most Inox who will indeed join society will only have jobs of brute force, like dock work, etc. The Inox are, however, more intelligent than we might believe (and more intelligent than the Vermlings.
