Physical Description

Pyronians are beings that appear to be made entirely out of fire. Their bodies are orange, rubbery, flexible, and are disconnected yet held up in the air by some sort of half-solid flaming aura. Some pyronians have a rare disorder that makes their body color different than orange, like magenta or red, but these pyronians are incredibly uncommon to find as they're usually exiled from their tribe. Each pyronian is made of 14 segments: a head, a body, four arm parts, four leg parts, two hands, and two feet. The segments will become dismembered if stretched too far from the body.

The head of a pyronian is split at the forehead, creating two horn or hair-like spikes. Under the split is a symbol that can be red, blue, yellow, green, or purple. Pyronians have blood-like "inner fuel" that seems to flow through their segments. The inner fuel and flame aura of the pyronian is a similar color to their symbol. Pyronian soldiers wear sashes and shorts, while tribe leaders and generals wear robes.

Personality & Traits

Pyronians are very primitive beings, yet their technology is very powerful. Every pyronian is part of a tribe that worships a certain god. There don't appear to be any physical difference in members of different tribes at first glance, but pyronians have a special sense that allows them to tell.

Each tribe is at constant war with each other, causing pyronians to be very hostile and competitive by nature. Many tribes are advanced in technology, using the magma inside their planet to generate power for their guns and rocket launchers, but some tribes are much more simple in their ways, using mere bows and blades. The largest tribes have entire kingdoms that wage war on eachother, which can cause the smallest tribes to be caught in between the battles.

History

Legends say that pyronians weren't always split up into tribes. According to the largest tribe, over a thousand years ago Our Creator came from above and granted the pyronian king Jark Tinflamor I the gift of knowledge and the technology to explore the universe. However, Our Creator also split the pyronians into tribes to attempt to keep the power of space travel between the king and his closest associates. The wars then began, but the Creation tribe still remained as the largest pyronian power. Since then space travel has become commonplace for pyronians, but some believe that there are still secrets hidden by the Creation tribe untold in legends.

Subspecies

Gasfires: Gasfires are a subspecies of pyronians that are far more durable and intelligent, but are weaker in combat. Every tribe has at least one gasfire in it. Gasfires are often in positions of power in their tribe, like kings or generals. However, some gasfires prefer to control from the shadows and merely influence their tribe's decisions through trickery and wit.

Special

Made of Fire: Pyronians are made of fire, and can burn things. They can usually control their temperature, but heat up if excited or surprised. Pyronians are extremely weak to water, and will be fatally injured if they come into prolonged contact with it. However, if they have access a heat source soon after getting wet, they may recover. At the cost of 10 fuel, pyronians can drink gasoline to get a temporary strength and agility boost. Pyronians are immune to being hurt by fire, obviously.

Trivia

• Less competitive pyronians are often employed as cooks due to their unique ability to burn things yet also control their heat output.

• Pyronians have a weird obsession with items that look like their symbol. This is especially potent in pyronians with weapons for symbols, as they will always use that weapon in battle when possible.

• Pyronians in the larger and more advanced tribes often get metallic replacements for dismembered parts or lost eyes.
