The Attrox is an enormous Asteroid that had been designed by Bartolome Naz for the sole purpose of keeping people and ships off the planet Elba IX. The asteroid had been modified to serve as an automated mobile weapons platform, but it has been given an organic brain, so that it can navigate Slipstream and can perform complicated judgments that would be beyond the grasp of even a sophisticated Artificial Intelligence. Naz claimed that this Attrox could not be beaten, because its organic brain gave it a "will to survive." Naz also referred to it as his "most magnificent creation." The Andromeda Ascendant had to run from the Attrox after a short, one sided battle against it when it went to Elba IX to respond to a message sent to Tyr Anasazi from his ex lover Desiree D'lene.
