Common inphidians make up the bulk of the population in inphidian communities. They serve as the laborers, craftsmen, workers, citizens, guards, and militia. They initiate combat using their blinding spray to gain the advantage. Afterwards, the creatures move in and attack with their snake-hands or weapons (if they happen to be wielding any).
