Noxans are an unusual species in that they can subsist on anything that’s organic, more or less. They don’t get sick from eating food that other critters may consider “bad”.

As a result, stuff… doesn’t smell “gross” to them, and a lot of noxans tend to go for flavors that are putrid or otherwise would be seen as revolting by most species.

You combine that with a sense of smell that’s a bit worse than that of your typical human and you end up with a species that’s notorious for being kinda really smelly.

(Thank you everyone for being so patient with me – I’ve never done drawn anything with this much interaction between two characters at all before and it ended up taking quite a bit longer than anticipated! AND NOW I REST FOR LIKE A DAY)
