As the Muton CTD seems to be available I'll give it a try and as the public has deemed by a democratic and fair vote, the Mutons shall be, "intelligent in battle, but otherwize stupid"
"The first fact collected from the field reports about these 'Mutons' is their great powress in battle. They seem able to shrug(sp?) off major damage without care, as if bullets are no more of a danger than drops of rain. Those exremely few who have escaped their attack claim that the Mutons can rip clean off a grown man's arm and break trough locked doors without so much as sweat.
However, dispite their hairless-ape like appearance they are quite intelligent and cunning on the battlefield. Their tactics and manuevers rival those of the X-Coprs elite soldiers. Outside of the battlefield the sitcuation(sp?) is however totally different, the Mutons seem to only rest and train while in captivity. There is little to none social activity not related to training and warfare. It seems that if these creatures ever had a civilisation of their own, it is totally gone now. They are more like machines of war, than a sentient specie.
After lenghtened perioids of conciousness within the X-Corps base the Muton psyche seems to begin showing signs of acute deterioration. It seems that these creatures are psionically "programmed" to receve commands from their masters from time to time. If no commands are receved - the commands are speculated to be issued psionically - the "psionic programming" starts a cycle that will eventually lead the Muton to coma and death. An effective method of control over such a powerful minion."
That's all for tonight, I'll write more tomorrow, but now
