Syrath

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Syrath1
Quadrant : Unknown

And intelligent species, the Syrath had an exoskeletal body with a high dome on top containing the primary sense organs, tapering down almost to a point before blooming out into a diamond structure which contained the secondary sense organs. Both sets of organs were dotted with green bioluminescent bulges. The body was supported on four slender intricately joined legs spaced equidistantly around the body, jointed to it at the narrowest point. Four tentacles could emerge from apertures just beneath the upper dome.1

At rest, with tentacles retracted, Syrath looked like an inanimate object.1

Syrath are almost impossible to permanently kill. Their cells are encoded in piezoelectric crystal units suspended in a liquid silicate solvent, with neural and genetic information, encoded structurally in chains of dislocation loops and electrically in stored potentials, rather than chemically in nucleic acids as was the case for most species. This enabled them to sustain enormous damage and simply regenerate afterwards - individual memories might be lost but the same individual would still survive afterwards. As a result of this, Syrath felt very little in the way of fear. They typically did not reveal this information to other races, not wishing to earn their envy.2

The Syrath evolved on the planet Syr, which had a surface pressure of two hundred standard atmospheres.2
