The ophions are a gelatinous species. They are most famous for the way their facial features are arranged.



Name: Ophions
Home Planet: Cios
Known For: Their faces, Masks, Being similar to gelatin
General Life Span: Around 105 years

General Weight: About the same weight as the average human

Description: There is a picture of one to the right. That particular ophion, Zerimel Drotea, is wearing a mask; her real face (during one of the few times it looks anything like a normal ophion face) is shown in the upper-right corner of the picture. Ophions resemble a cross between brachiolaria and the larvae of brittle stars. They have the consistency and feel of gelatin. When dealing with other sapient species, they generally cover their heads with masks so their faces don’t disturb anyone.

Other Info:
Senses – Ophions can see using their eyes, but most of them view their eyes as a secondary sense that they can do without. They mainly see using vibrations, which they can feel using any part of their body.

Defense Mechanisms – The ophions’ horn-shaped protrusions and unusual facial arrangement were originally meant to scare off predators. While they no longer have to worry too much about predators, they can still use those features to intimidate members of other species.

Breathing – Ophions breathe through their skin. While they can wear some clothing and still breathe fine, covering up too much of their body will cause them to suffocate.

Reproduction – In addition to sexual reproduction, ophions can also reproduce by budding. They don’t normally do so, however, since they don’t want their species to lose its genetic diversity.
