Crystals


Blue Crystal
Blue Crystal
 

Disposition: Destructive
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Universal
Blue Crystals are found most commonly in the proximity of stars, whether they be red giants or white dwarves. Their atomic makeup, though unique, resembles the nuclear fusion found at the center of all stars. Unlike stars however, which exist as a result of proton-proton, helium, or carbon based fusion, Blue Crystals are the result of a symbiotic mesh between this very fusion and what is speculated to be a bacteria based gaseous energy-form. Easiest of the Crystals to avoid due to the radiant energy output of the nearby stars, Blue Crystals nonetheless wield a terrifyingly destructive power of their own.


Frost Crystal
Frost Crystal
 

Disposition: Destructive
Rarity: Rare
Region: Southwest from Pardus
Core
Often located in the same regions of the universe where Class I planets exist, the Frost Crystals, like the planets themselves, have come to embody the very element of ice. Slightly easier to detect due to the increased amounts of energy they emit, and because of their unique evolution into an actual semi-solid substance, rather than a gas, Frost Crystals pose less of a threat to travelers. Their energy signature is still difficult to detect the further one travels away from them however, and like all Crystals they are the sole inhabitants of their spatial area, allowing no other forms of solid matter to exist within their reach.


Space Crystal
Space Crystal
 

Disposition: Destructive
Rarity: Rare
Region: Universal
One of the two newer species of Crystal, it has been discovered that the energy signature of the Space Crystals resembles that of the very natural riftgates used in interstellar space travel. Man-made wormholes used to transport large groups of spacecraft across great distances give off as well a nearly identical energy signature. With the yet to be understood choices the Crystals make as to which sources of energy to absorb, and which to reject, the manifestation of these Space Crystals raise many questions in researchers' minds about the many naturally occurring wormholes. Once thought to be abnormalities, mysterious anomalies, many scientists have been fascinated by the possibility of a deeper purpose behind these unexplained phenomena of the universe.


Rive Crystal
Rive Crystal
 

Disposition: Destructive
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Pardus Cluster
The youngest of the Crystals, Rive Crystals were born during the end of the First Great War, though they were not discovered until the Pardus Cluster was reopened centuries later. Unlike the infected lifeforms that now roam the Pardus Sector, the crystals trapped within the Pardus Cluster found the Lucisti Virus to be beneficial, slowly evolving into the Rive Crystal form we know today. Left to mutate for centuries, foreign energy sources began to be absorbed by the crystals, many of them radioactive energies that would have originally been rejected. Though their solitary nature makes study of the Rive Crystals difficult, scientists have reason to believe these radioactive energy sources are remnants of the power sources used in the warships of the First Great War.


Ancient Crystal
Ancient Crystal
 

Disposition: Destructive
Rarity: Rare
Region: Pardus Cluster
The purest form of the condensed, gaseous energy that create the mysterious Crystals, Ancient Crystals exist in a wholly unaltered state. Like stem cells, they have yet to evolve into their mature state by coming into contact with a symbiotic energy source. The Ancient Crystals, strangely enough however, pose the greatest threat of all to space-goers. Their energy signal, nearly nonexistent, is the most difficult for pilots to detect from long distances, while the gaseous energy they are able to release upon any craft that nears their vicinity is stronger than that of any other Crystal ever encountered, even the enigmatic Rive Crystal.
