A transformed Ctarl-Ctarl.
The Ctarl-Ctarl are a metamorph species, able to change their physical forms into that of more primordial creatures to enhance their strength and durability. The resulting transformation is very powerful, but apparently takes a lot of energy to maintain, and so therefore is typically only used for a relatively short duration followed by an immense intake of food.
Outside of its militarism, not much is known about the culture of the Ctarl-Ctarl. They also appear to feature their own monotheistic religion, worshiping the "God of all Ctarl-Ctarl."

From the Outlaw Star wiki:
Little is known of the Ctarl-Ctarl's history. They possess an interstellar empire that has warred with humanity in the past, although in the modern day trade agreements have been established and cordial relations made. Most lay individuals seen in the anime show fear towards the Ctarl-Ctarl reputation, and their race's physical prowess is legendary. The Ctarl-Ctarl are by the modern day accepted within human society, within reason, and can join in most human customs, such as the Heifong Space Race. One exception to this however would be their inability to participate in the Universal Strongman Tournament, due to a freak accident involving a Ctarl-Ctarl competitor becoming overly excited and biting off her opponent's ear, before being disqualified and going berserk, causing thousands of casualties.
