Serpents


Nebula Serpent
Nebula Serpent
 

Disposition: Predatory
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Pardus Cluster
Thought to be the least evolved of the Space Serpents, the Nebula Serpent is able to exist only within the thick clouds of nebula gas that encompass the various sectors. Required to breathe massive amounts of nebula gas simply to sustain their internal organs, they are nonetheless often sighted slithering through the less dense clouds of a sector's inner ring.


Asp Hatchlings
Asp Hatchlings
 

Disposition:
Aggressive - Predatory
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Pardus Core
Asp Mothers, one of the few creatures of the Kingdom Animalia to embrace parthenogenesis (Asexual Reproduction), use their diploidic chromosomes to fertilize their own eggs, storing them within their bodies until mere hours of their hatching. The newborn serpents nonetheless find themselves orphaned upon their birth, forced to fend for themselves against the harsh elements of space, the dangerous predators that lurk around them, and even their very own family. Highly territorial, Hatchlings find themselves embroiled in a vicious battle for supremacy, bearing fangs against their own brothers and sisters in a vicious form of sibling rivalry, ceasing their battle only after all others have perished, or they find themselves floating alone amidst the vastness of space.


Asp Mother
Asp Mother
 

Disposition:
Aggressive - Predatory
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Pardus Core
While significantly larger than Nebula Serpents, their bodies have nevertheless evolved to require less of the precious nebula gas they breathe, able to survive even for short periods of time in regions where there are trace amounts. Though many full grown adults are recorded as reaching lengths of 75-90 meters, legend suggest that, like the mammoth kyaals of Keldana and the giant anacondas found on Earth, Asp Mothers may contain no biological mechanism that stunts their growth after a certain amount of years, left to grow only larger and larger until their bodies are forced to submit to age.


Feral Serpent
Feral Serpent
 

Disposition:
Aggressive - Predatory
Rarity: Legendary
Region: Unknown
Though almost nothing is known about the incredibly elusive Feral Serpent, stories of its existence have been passed down for generations. Thought by some to be the eldest of the ferocious Asp Mothers and thought by others to be a unique species, they are believed by the rest to be little more than figments of pilots' imagination. Reports of attacks by this Feral Serpent have emerged from all corners of the universe however, leading true believers to wonder if there is more than just one.
