(alredy presented in other threads about similar subjects):

Hijos de perra: despective/insulting word for the Vargr, mostly for enemy ones. Takes from Spanish (being IIRC, the second most influential language in Galanglic, though I cannot remember the exact reference), literal translation would be "sons of a female dog", thoug is usually equivalent to the ENglish SOB.

K9: term used to refer to a Vargr military unit. Initially despective, it has lost this hue with time. Origin uncertain, some claim from a Solomani pre 3I language, though others claim this not to be posible ,as the Solomani didn't have enough contact with the Vargr t odevelop this term before 3I.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.
