Locate new friends in the void.....

The speciesdex hosts info about the many intelligent species in the universe. A species is a group who can reasonably perform, or at least comprehend, higher action skills, such as driving a ship, building shelter, or farming. Almost all of the species here have entered the universal society one way or the other.

Fhelzo

While the finer details of a fhelzo's personality vary between different types, there are a few constants that appear regardless of the fhelzo's given personality. By default fhelzo lack any vocal means of communicating and thus most fhelzo will rarely communicate with those outside their own race, instead preferring to listen and decide what to do without responding.

Fibrae

Most people will describe the fibrae as the epitome of the "Surfer-Dude" personality. They are usually quite laid back and very welcoming to new people and ideas, recommending certain hairstyles that they believe would fit their look, excitedly debating the philosophical and ethical aspects of braids (for hours on end), or maybe even flirting with other species on their first meeting. Most people, however, do not know that one should never, ever, put a fibrae in a position of leadership

Fleetomine

Cheery, excited, and friendly are commonly apt descriptors of this species. The fleetomine culture is centered around friendship and celebrations. As soon as one is born they are searching to make a new friend, and whomever becomes their first friend names them.

This means that although they treat newcomers and visitors with their utmost respect, fleetomine are subject to being manipulated and deceived easily.

Floris

Floris are gentle giants. They are incredibly peaceful, shy, and hate conflict. Communities of floris are often very tight knit and co-dependant. They are always taking care of and defending eachother from danger. If one is messed with, the whole family will jump to their defense.

Fog

Fogs can be fickle, since it's a large mind-hive rather than a single organism. It is on the whole, mysterious, and its purpose in the grand order of things isn't known for certain. What is known is that fogs universally hates gravity. Its psionics cannot stay connected in gravity stronger than that of a moderate-sized asteroid, it will collapse into inert dust, but even smaller fields restrict its movement, which is apparently uncomfortable.

Frejynk

The frejynk were a species of desert reptile that used to live in the currently destroyed desert planet Arrakeron. They had no limbs to speak of, with a long, sinuous body covered with a thick layer of scales ending in a usually sharp tail. They had a sandy brown bone-like formation on their heads, similar to that of a skull, with a band on the front where a blue eye could be seen.

Frescar

The hostility of their home planet makes death, injury and illness all too common. If they grieved like most species they would spend all their time crying, so instead ingrained in their culture is an exceptionally morbid sense of humour. A typical frescari will laugh at even the deaths of their loved ones, and crying is frowned upon if not outright punished by those around them.

Frilliz

Frilliz are an incredibly family-oriented species, forming small tribes out of family groups. They share everything that they have with each other amongst their tribe, and honor the bonds of the tribe above all else. When alone, frilliz are very prone to depression, anxiety, and the numbing of emotions, but this can be avoided by establishing close-knit relationships with other species. It is noted that species with similar appearances to frilliz will be more easily bonded with.

Galooper

Galoopers are above all else "friendly." Very friendly, to the the point where it's difficult to get a galooper to not make gratuitous shows of affection towards people, animals, whatever. This is a bit of a problem, since galoopers seem to not fully understand that their bodily fluids can hurt people, and much like a small child, will be very disheartened by rejections of their well intended advances, without really understanding why what they did is bad.

Gandorin

Gandorins usually act very anxious and nervous around members of species from other planets, but they can teach themselves to calm down around certain individuals, usually their friends or crew members. Sometimes they'll be born into a family who doesn't teach them to fear aliens, and these individuals can easily interact with other species and be fine, and will often give hugs to their friends, or other people they trust.

Geckrechaun

To some, calling the geckrechauns greedy is an overstatement; to others, an understatement. What both parties can agree on is that there is nothing in the universe the species loves more than money. The geckrechauns only live for a short 20 years, and from the moment they are hatched they are on a mad dash to obtain as much wealth as possible. They laugh in the faces of those who say that money cannot buy happiness. Traders by nature, the geckrechauns travel the universe, selling their goods. From the humble trader of worthless knick-knacks to the great planet salesgeck, this species can be found in all sectors of trade.

Geiger

Geigers are very friendly, trusting, and are docile until threatened. Although even when threatened, geigers often try to take a peaceful approach. Only when the situation seems hopeless will a geiger fight tooth, nail, and boiling water to get out though many have been known to just accept their fate. Geigers speak with their mouths closed, which tends to unnerve people so sometimes they will move their mouth to mimic speech movements.

Gemimi

The gemimi is an affectionate and peaceful herbivore. Their love of travel keeps them on the move, they never feel like they have truly found their place in the world, and while for some gemimis this makes them nervous and uncertain, others enjoy the excitement of meeting new people. Gemimi are social creatures, normally they carefully build a friend group that understands them and their needs.

Generic

Generic. They live their life as generically as possible. What this equals depends on what planet they're on.

Geptad

Geptads are nomadic and very good at adapting to new environments. Many cannot stand not moving and are a bit restless by nature. They live in nomadic groups known as colonies, which consist of exactly 36 individuals. The group number is never higher or lower, though at times the party seen is smaller due to certain geptads either having some alone time or being off on their own individual quests.

Gigne

Two primary directives govern gigne philosophy above all else: seek knowledge, and, even more importantly, share knowledge. To gignes, the right to learn is just as important as the right to food or shelter, and to this end they make sure all gigne research is openly available to anyone who may wish to peruse it. If one wishes to learn more about a topic, they need only ask a gigne; they may not know, but they'll definitely be able to point to where one can start looking.

Gnosis

Gnosis are generally rather talkative creatures, eager to inquire about various stories. Often they take the information from these stories and compile them to make a new one, leading to various rumors about practically every species. Many have learned to believe whatever the gnosis say are simply stories modified to suit their fancy. They are known to read more quickly the other species by literally reading with their mouths, making it look like as if they are devouring the book.

Goldorian

Goldorians are very strong, but also very violent and stupid; many wonder how they even developed space flight at all. In battle, they tend to prefer powerful weapons and brute strength over any sort of strategy. Many underestimate this but they tend to be very good at charging headfirst into battle.

Gondii

The large majority of the gondii race are pacifists - due to their special diets they prefer to promote peace and love amongst their kind. They're highly social, living in small utopian communities scattered across their planet. They tend to refer to anyone as either "brother" or "sister", with the exception what they perceive to be authority which could either be their "chief" or "the man", depending on the Gondii's opinions are on them.

Gong-an

Weaver gong-an behave similarly to many animal sapient species. They eat a variety of insects and fruit, preferring cooked or prepared food, to supplement the energy they gain from photosynthesis with their three leafy appendages. They digest food by holding it in their tiny closed fists as it is absorbed, and cannot eat anything that is too large without cutting it into smaller pieces. They are more active during daytime and in bright conditions, require nutrients and water, but can survive for some time without air, and sleep at night.
