Will most definitely be posting other things.. Once I have ideas for them.
Planet/Celestial Body Form:
Name: Ether Prime (ee, like seen: Eee-thur)
Classification (moon, planet, star, etc.): Planet
*General Location: Located in the Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. Orbits a small, white star called Alpha Etheria.
Climate: Cold and dry.
Description: A small planet around the size of Mars. It is a rocky planet, but has little geological activity. The atmosphere is thin, but still thick enough to support life and protect organisms from the deadly rays of it's sun. Ether Prime is purpleish in color, along with silver, grey, brown, and black. The atmosphere is mostly comprised of methane and ammonia, along with some other gases that would normally be poisonous to oxygen-breathing lifeforms. Ether Prime, as it is fairly small, compared to other planets, has low gravity, lower than that of Mars, but not as severe as Earth's moon. The terrain consist of large, dense forests, rugged mountains, wide, rocky plains, and chilly, sandy deserts. It is fairly dark on Ether Prime, as it's star is kind of dim in star-terms. The day looks like an early dusk, and night looks like... well, night. There are no bodies of water on the surface, but layers of ice run through the earth, providing freshwater for it's inhabitants. During the Summer, or whenever Ether Prime is closest to it's sun, this ice will melt, and tiny streams of water will run on the surface. Ether Prime has 3 small, asteroid-like moons, each respectively named Isinak, Sahlin, and Kra.
*Flora (plant lifeforms): Usually tall and spindly, but found close together in dense forests. Silver grasses, tall, ebony trees with bio luminescent leaves. Small, white flowers. Most of the plant life is nocturnal, and have luminescent parts.
*Fauna (animal lifeforms): Like the plants, they are usually long and somewhat thin. No animal has any fur or feathers, and most either have hard, rubbery skin, or sleek scales. There are mammles, and plenty of insects, as well as crustaceons, invertibraes, and reptiles. Most of them are quite ugly to look at.
*Races: Etherians (Ee-ther-ee-ans, ther as in theory). It's believed there were others in the past, but no ones knows, or wants to know.
History: An old planet, billions of years old, and much older than Earth. Ether Prime was formed late into it's stars formation, and has been theorized to be the last created in it's system. It is the 4th planet from the sun, but was believed to have been formed closer to it's sun before being cast out further into it's system. Life also formed later on, and took a while, as the conditions on Ether Prime were harsher in the past/ But eventually, life found a way (heh), and yeah.
Alien Race/Species Form:
Name: Etherians (Ethurian)
Gender Ratio: Both male and female, 50/50 chance, but different things can effect that ratio.
Home Planet: Ether Prime
Physical Description: Because of their planet's gravity, Etherians are very tall. Some would say they're the tallest sentient beings in the galaxy, with average heights being around 7.5 and 8 feet. The have gaunt, hawkish faces with small, pale eyes that have very poor eyesight. They have large, detachable jaws like a snake, with long, black-teeth that can extend like Goblin Shark out of their jaws. You can't see their jaws very well, as they have extra skin that hangs around their faces. They have slits for nostrils, and no visible ears. As well as being tall, Etherians are known for being skinny and somewhat bony looking. The have small, blunt spikes sticking out from their longish necks and the top of their backs between their shoulder blades. They have very long arms and legs, with long, clawed fingers and feet. Etherian torsos are slender, and they are also born with tails, but these are cut off after they emerge from their cocoons. Etherians have dark skin, either being dark grey, or black. It is fairly loose, and hangs from their cheeks, arms, and sags around their chests. While it is loose, it is tough, and feels a tad bit like used sandpaper. Etherians are strong, but they are also brittle, and can be broken much more easily than other creatures. They have milky, violet blood, and pearly colored flesh. I took inspiration from Enderman and Xenomorphs.
Intelligence Level: Human level intelligence, but are still prone to some beastly instincts.
Life Cycle: When Etherians reach the mature breeding age of 6 years old (they mature faster), twp Etherians of the opposite gender will be brought together to produce eggs, usually 2-4. Etherians will be allowed to continue on with life, and have no role raising of their young (unless their job is to take care of the young). Eggs are small, and are purplish black in color, with a translucent leathery case. From these eggs after 6 weeks, a grub-like larva will hatch. The larvae are small, squishy, and black and purple in color, and are completely blind. They also have voracious appetities, and in order to complete their life cycle, they must eat large amounts of food, which include pretty much anything alive. They'll eat plants and insects, but they mostly prefer meat, and will try to devour anything with a beating heart that's near them. It's a known method of punishment for criminal Etherians to be thrown into a nursery of Etheri (name for the larvae) for the Etheri to eat. Etheri have also been known to eat each other if they aren't fed enough. Once an Etheri HAS eaten enough, it will begin to form a hard, black cocoon where it will remain for 3 months as it transforms into an adult Etherian. Adult Etherians emerge from the cocoon soft and with a short tail. These tails are easily cut off in a precedure, as Etherians seem them as useless. Over time, the Etherian will grow taller, with the oldest Etherians being the tallest.
Beavior: Etherians believe they are superior compared to the rest of the Universe. These are very arrogant, and have a sense of entiltedment, as they are responsible for plenty of technological advancements, and movements in peace and trade as well. While it has been a very long time since Etherians were considered beasts, they still have tendencies to act vicious and beastly. I need to develop this part of them... eergh. They're similar to the IceWings in a way. They believe they could easily defeat most races, but know when to keep their heads down if they are around someone stronger then them. Idk.... They also have a fascination with how things works (dissecting, oooh), and love science and politics (POLITICAL SCIENCES, WHAT A DISCOVERY). It isn't common to find an Etheriam as an ambassador, or in some other form of authority on other worlds. Etherians also like to compete, they want to be at the top, and they'll even fight their own kind if necessary.
*Culture: WILL WORK ON THIS PART LATER
Abilities/Powers: They have large serrated teeth, and strong (but brittle) fingers and claws. They are fast and can move with ease in low gravity, but are vulnerable in greater gravity. It makes them hunch over, and a lot slower. They are more resistant to the cold and UV rays (and other dangerous space rays), and have acute senses of smell and touch.
*Languages: They speak the common language of the Milky Way Galaxy, but they also communicate to each other through a language that's mainly comprised of hisses, clicks, and other hissy/snarly sounding words.
Diet: Unlike their young, Adult Etherians eat very little, and when they do, they prefer light meals, mostly fruits and insects.
*In the Galactic Alliance? Yes, why wouldn't they want to be?
Strengths: Move with ease through low gravity, and can easily navigate close quartered places. They can blend in with shadows and dark places.
Weaknesses: Can't function as easily in high gravity, and have poor eyesight. Their bones are easier to break. Also prone to reckless anger.
