It is unknown what the oomn honor, if anything.
The oomn are humanoids which have skin that is pitch black to chalk white and everything in between. The oomn have a glassy-eyed look that indicates that their souls have been crushed even before birth. They have a generally very gray and depressing aesthetic; just about everything about them looks depressing, from their terrible posture to their penchant for ill-fitting, colorless clothing, to that constant 'sad puppy' expression. They tend to cover their mouths with anything, ranging from thick scarves to high collars. Sometimes they wear masks.
A summary of their personality would be 'depressing'. They are meek, timid, and very unassertive by nature, and are never really seen speaking. Oomn tend to not speak as much as other species. Beneath their strange personality, most oomn are actually very nice, sociable people who really want to be friends with everybody. Don't shout too loudly in their direction, or they'll feel personally responsible and get more depressed.
As oomn don't talk very much, most carry something to write with/on. Strangely enough, the most popular choice is a chalkboard; a blackboard, specifically.
The history of the oomn properly begins with the opening of a mysterious object on the planet O'clair called 'The Lockbox'. Inside was discovered, of all things, a relatively large city filled with the oomn. They were both terrified and extremely grateful for being let out of the lockbox. Since then, the oomn have taken tenuous steps to integrate into intergalactic culture, though some clamber for the safety of their sealed box home once more because the galaxy is absolutely terrifying to most oomn.
• Oomn poetry was rated as the Universe's No. 1 most depressing poetry by the Universal Poet's Society.
• Oomn were initially baffled by the concept of colors; they were all like "What, no, you made those up." And then they saw a planet that had actual colors and were kind of upset by it.
• Oomn do not favor any food over the other and will eat anything. It should be noted that even though one can hand anything to an oomn to eat, one must be careful what they are feeding it. A person can hand poison to an oomn, tell the oomn it’s deadly, and the oomn will still eat it anyway.
