Cnidanii are best described as a huge mass of dark-colored tentacles. Any other attempt to describe it further than that just ends up contradicting itself, any attempts to understand them further drives people to insanity.
Illustrations passed down in librarbies [sic] placed the enemies as very unsettling creatures. They were best described them as very dark and shadowy. The most notable feature seen in tales passed down were their striking red eyes, which could sink into gooey, weeping masses to intimidate their foes.
A singular datos is so small it is nearly invisible and could only be spotted by the glint of light off its metal carapace. It is very unlikely for one to ever meet just a single datos, as they travel around in swarms of anywhere from a few thousand to a few million, which resemble a rippling silver orb the size of a beach ball. This orb floats using electromagnetic forces to float, stick together and transmit data. Thousands of datii can disperse themselves over a fairly large area while remaining in contact with each other. To distinguish between colonies, each colony of datii will take on a certain pattern with which they will mark themselves when in “orb form”. Datii convert biomass into fuel using chemicals inside them. A datos orb needs to eat about once a day to continue running optimally, but can last around four days at a more sluggish pace.
Koulev (pronounced 'koo-lev') are a snakelike race, characterized by their long, coiling bodies and the unique psychic organ on their foreheads. Their bodies are almost wholly covered in scales of varying sizes, and they possess thick 'ears' with two small slits within them, which come in many varying shapes. These 'ears' actually serve no hearing function, and serve to help stabilize the strong psychic signal. Their actual sense of hearing comes from a receptor behind their neck- a koulev with their hand on their neck is not nervous, but annoyed or distressed. They do not possess nostrils, instead their sense of smell comes from a forked tongue and a scent receptor under their chin.
The average twerpian is an eight limbed humanoid, with four hooved legs supporting it, four arms, light grey skin and ram like horns alongside the sides of their head. Their body is covered in a coarse grey fur, though the fur is known to display colors on the spectrum of the rainbow after extended exposure to polluted substances, whether it be air, water, or otherwise. This is mostly due to the fact that their fur excretes a scentless natural oil that helps keep out the cold and repel any parasites, a common problem Twerpia had in the past. When exposed to pollution, this oil slowly deteriorates, leaving behind a multicolored residue that stains their fur, as well as a hindered protection from the cold and parasites. While some twerpians will purposely try to expose themselves to pollution for reasons related to “fashionable appearance,” most tend to avoid planets and areas that are heavy with pollution. There are a few physical differences between male and female twerpians, however. Females on average stand quite a fair bit taller than their male counterparts, and have shorter, blunter horns that normally only form a half-circle when viewed from the side, if not shorter. On the other end of the spectrum, the males are typically shorter, stronger, and more resilient than the females, if only just, and have horns that form a near full circle when viewed from the side. They also tend to have a limited vocal range, and only speak in various pitches of “meep, merp, gonk, and zonk,” or the simplified twerpian language. Female twerps and aftiks know what they are saying, but others will tend to find it difficult understanding them.
The zadrixes are medium sized humanoid mammals with reptilian scales covering a majority of their body, along a fairly long tail to keep balance. They’re ungulates, with deer-like hooves. They have seven eyes in total, taking up most of their flat faces, with one large eye in the center of their forehead being the only one with a pupil. These eyes are commonly a bright blue, but can be any color. Zadrixes have two large deer-like ears, with the insides of said ears matching the color of their eyes. The most notable feature of the zadrixes is their six arms, and by extension, six hands. Each hand has two clawed fingers and a thumb. Due to this, zadrixes are great multitaskers.
The Hulwits are rarely, if not never seen naked or out of their disguise. The rare times they were sighted, most described them as an odd feature-less blobby thing ranging from black to white coloured and varying in size and shape. One adventurous tourist managed to capture one and says that "they are quite soft and warm". Hulwits are invertebrates and can squish through the tightest of spots and take very little space.
Chriilth'tyn strongly resemble hoodies in varying speckled shades of dark green, with tendrils emerging from the openings. The "hood" is actually their head, with large semi-circular eyes on the outside of it that are often mistaken for decorative additions to the hood. The 5 tendrils at the neck hole are prehensile tongues, which they use to operate masks. These masks usually contain musical strings on the inside, as well as a small text-to-speech keypad. Each "sleeve" and the bottom of the hoodie end in 6 tendrils, although all of these will normally be covered by clothing to make them appear more humanoid. They may also wear elbowpads and kneepads to remember where to pretend their joints are. When not covering their tendrils, their movement is eerily silent.
Goopmicks are towers of black sludge with long, thin arms ending in sharp, spindly claws. They are always found wearing poorly-made masks of other species. It is said that the only thing under the mask is a hole. Unfortunately for them, they always exude a stench of decomposing plant matter. To eat, a goopmick will envelop its food with its gooey body and absorb it. Some goopmicks encase their goo in the skin, shell, carapace or whatever else of the species displayed on their mask. Others wear things to imitate it, such as fake fur or plastic.
What we have here is a curious little speck of a creature, barely the size of a pea. Wozzee are tiny, buglike aliens with boneless, rubbery bodies covered in a layer of pastel-colored fuzz. They possess a pair of red eyes, hairlike antennae, jagged beaky chompers, and a collar of fluff. They have six stripy noodles that end in sticky pads for hands and feet. They are surprisingly durable for their size, as you can squeeze one between two fingers without killing them. They are best known for their attention to detail and their miniature communities, which are small enough to fit on a desktop. Larger wozzee cities might cover the entire floor-space of a room. People can purchase their homes from them as decorations, citizens and all. This is legal and their residents are even okay with this, as it allows them to express themselves while staying safe from the elements. Sometimes they will live on crew members going into space, sharing the work and profits.
Chistile are a short bipedal reptilian species resembling chameleons, usually hunched over, with dark grey joints and translucent scales in patches of varying blue, red, white, green, yellow, purple, and white. While somewhat opaque, in high sunlight chistile can be dazzling and even painful to look at, and so they often wear loose embroidered robes, which with how garish they are, do not do much to solve the situation.
Rhodalyas are short, fluffy creatures that come in a wide variety of colors. Their fur is characteristically dyed and patterned in fashionable ways to stand out from others of their kind. They have six arms, four of which are frequently hidden, and two legs. Their teeth are surprisingly sharp, pointed, and very white. Their eyes take up much of their face and are as varied as their hair color. They have a single fin on their back, and webbed feet. Rhodalyas can swim as well as they can walk, and when wet, their fur resembles that of a seal's fur. They have gills on the sides of their necks that allow them to breathe under water indefinitely.
Cereustracti are anthropomorphic cactus creatures that are part cloud. A typical cereustractus’s body is covered in protective needles and bristles, and is green, though some individuals are golden or purplish. A stractus stands on two stubby legs with two pad-like feet and has a neckless, barrel-like body-and-head that is usually short and squat. This body is good for storing within them a large volume of highly-pressurized, iridescence-tinged water. This water seeps out the top of one’s head in the form of water vapor that forms into clouds, which vary in size and shape between individuals.

Zzyzxi are gaseous, transparent beings, with two glowing gray or purple eyes on each palm respectively. They will their to not only use their eyes to see, but to also express emotion, in conjunction with their mouths. Zzyzxi seem to be vaguely humanoid, with thin, elongated necks, and skewed head proportions that vary with each environment and personality. Zzyzxi are potentially very, very cold beings temperature-wise, but despite the biting chill, a zzyzx will not shiver.
They are generally very short and a bit on the pudgy side. They have no eyes or mouth on their head, but they do have a cat-like nose. They have long pointy ears, which are almost always pointed forwards. The insides of their ears contain their eyes. On their bellies are their large mouths, which they keep shut for obvious reasons. Their tails are long and fluffy, and are used to grab things they couldn't normally reach, or just used to carry an extra object. They come in a multitude of pastel colors, from pale pink to a light red. Some have small tiger stripes.
