Quick sketch of a "carrot-man" from World Wasters. I went with the idea that they are like mandrake root with several limbs coming off of the main carrot-shaped body. And for some reason I think that they should talk like Clint Eastwood.
"Umbelliferans are an intelligent ambulatory form of plant life
originating on Beta Kara X in the days of the First Orionion Empire.
Because of their uncanny resemblance, including orange coloration, to
terrestrial carrots, they are sometimes referred to as "carrot-men",
but not usually to their faces. Umbelliferans have extraordinary shooting
skills because of their exceptionally good eye sight."
