[Strangely Graceful] Neutral trait
This character is graceful, but in a sort of odd way. Many will note that this character has an odd sort of grace, and is frankly sort of mysterious. This causes many other characters to pry more into them.
[Nomadic] Neutral trait
This character is very good at adapting to new environments, but can't stand not moving on. A bit restless by nature.
[Observant] Positive trait
This character notices things far quicker than most other types of characters. They are more likely to make observations about hidden passageways or certain special objects. They overall make better judgements than others.
[Cunning] Positive trait
This character is crafty when it comes to lying and deception, able to more easily trick others to get what they want. They may also have a knack for illusions.
[Cryptic] Negative trait
This character speaks in riddles, code, and tends to be extremely hidden about their words. Due to this it's extremely hard for people around them to understand what they are trying to say. This character might be so dedicated to their riddles that they are willing to endanger others with their unwillingness to stop. Ex: This character knows about a monster coming up, this character will tell the people who are heading towards the monster a riddle about how there is a monster in the next room without saying directly there is a monster and they need to prepare for it.
[Sensory Overload] Negative trait
This character is prone to burnout through too much sensory input, be it auditory, tactile, or visual. The reactions may be different, however; shut-downs or aggression in response to overload are common.
[Visions] Mystery trait
There's a storm a-comin.
[Psychopomp] Mystery trait
You got death by your side.

Physical Description

Lux and Nox are a huge two headed hydra. Lux is the left head and Nox is the right head. Lux's eyes are stitched shut, and she has long pointed ears. Nox's mouth is stitched shut, and she has short cat-like ears. They lack any back legs, and have a large powerful tail that they use to propel themselves through space. They have short, blood red fur.


Lux and Nox are always found wandering around space. It is extremely rare that they are ever found on a planet. Both heads have extremely contradicting personalities. Lux is the one that speaks for both heads, and rarely ever gives a straight answer to a question. Nox almost never speaks and just observes, and when she does speak her answer is always extremely short.

Whenever Lux and Nox receive a vision about someone, they will track that person down without fail. When found, they will give the advice and leave. Their advice usually comes in the form of a riddle, and is always extremely cryptic. Oftentimes the advice is never understood until the event the advice was referring to has happened or is happening. It is very rare that Lux and Nox are encountered by a crew without any advice given.


Lux and Nox were first discovered by a crew of notails. The notails tried to attack Lux and Nox, before receiving their advice. All that was said to them was "Be sure to pack extra drinks and snacks." A few weeks later, the ship was found stranded in space with all of the notails but one found dead. The advice is assumed to have been referring to their fuel and rations. Since that point in time, sightings of Lux and Nox have been very common.


Special Delivery: Once Lux and Nox have a target, they will hunt that person down and find them, without fail. Whether this ability comes from some sort of tracking device, or just from a spiritual link is unknown.


• Most bits of advice given by Lux and Nox foreshadow a bad event. The only bit of advice that told of a 'good' event was to a tourist. It was just "Enjoy your stay." Later that month the tourist got stranded on a paradise planet.

• Any attempts to track down or kill Lux and Nox have failed. Whenever the twins are attacked, they just fly out of sight and disappear for a few years.

• There are only three known accounts of Nox talking. All she said for these three accounts were "What." "No." and "Stop asking questions."
