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.



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.


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.


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.


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.


Most people in the universe will know a goopmick or two. Many find this strange, since nobody in the universe will identify themself as a goopmick. Goopmicks do not exist in any official capacity. They do not appear on censii, are not mentioned in any records, and have no government. This is a safety measure. If it were not the case, billions of people would die.


To call the gorgorse narcissistic or self centered would be far to simple a description for such an absolute garbage fire of a being. It is by no means an over-exaggeration to describe the gorgorse as "the worse species that has ever been discovered" as the majority of the universe, notails included, will likely agree with that sentiment.

Great Filter

One would be hard-pressed to come up with a species that is as merciless as the great filter. Information on their social and personal lives is lacking, but the reports that do exist paint them as a cold and calculating species. Their manipulative nature is heightened by their wide vocal range, allowing them to stalk and attract prey unnoticed. Unsettlingly, the great filter is infamous for their "torture drive."


The grol had a complicated society, the details of which administration remain somewhat unclear. Due to their lack of faster-than-light travel, direct enforcement of central power was effectively impossible, leading to a decentralised nature in which, despite all populations being theoretically subservient to a central leader, actual power was absolute in their local administrators.


Hazcots all share one personality but are not a hive mind. There are some minor differences between them but their drive makes them very similar on the surface. All hazcot are driven by a drive to perfect and bring out the full potential of the species of the universe. They go from planet to planet or capture small vessels to abduct the inhabitants in order to run foul and highly illegal experiments on them to turn them into ferocious weapons and monsters. They show no remorse in doing this and find the things they do to their victims 'cute.'


These beings are extremely eccentric and often obsess over random objects. They make for excellent laborers, due to their tenacity at performing repetitive and long tasks. They are also quite good captain material, as they are incredibly good at planning and micromanaging, though are often poor in the actual execution and therefore must delegate these tasks to others.

They despise ledges.


Information deserves to be free, and thoughts are just information. That is one of the mottos of the heredoggo people, and is why they treat the invasion of privacy as a routine. If one has nothing to hide then one should have no issue with there neighbor sending them live reactions to their browsing history. As such anyone who desires their thoughts be hidden must be malicious, or completely unlike a proper person.


Hirudinaria are a very social species, eager to interact with both their patients and one another. They're often considered very friendly, if a bit intrusive at times, as many hirudinaria are interested in biology and medical research and thus may question friends about their anatomy. Hirudinaria, when not working, will oftentimes spend their day simply resting in the cool brackish water swamps of their home planet, sleeping in large piles together.


The name "hohun" means "What name?" in their native tongue. The species lacks a name; thus, they replied the only way they could when asked for one. The hohuns do not believe in names because it is considered a sign of possessiveness. For example, a hohun might call their house "the place I sleep." They do not even name themselves, instead, they are called by titles, such as Blacksmith, Son of blacksmith.


Of all the facts pertaining to the hokkans, one stands as the most surprising: their adoration of language. Once a far more sophisticated creature, these ancient fliers still have a substantial connection to words and music, and enjoy repeating words and songs they find appealing. While this seems to be a simple case of mimicry at first, they can connect meaning to sound, a fact that took many years to find out. Bigger, more complex meaning words have the most appeal. To the hokkan brain, making sounds and figuring out their meaning is a joyful puzzle, especially in more difficult situations where they may not understand the context.


Homuncustien are quiet folks. Most have gone through a great deal, whether it be the great infection, dying, having family die, most have a story they can tell of tragedy. However, they're also a rather celebratory people. Whenever something particularly good happens, expect them to find some way to find more joy in it than most, even if they're also left all the same quiet calm afterwards. The average homuncustien has an odd relationship with death.


Honklits crave attention. Without it, they crack.

They are loud, hyper, and are always looking for an audience, positive or negative. It doesn't matter to them, for attention is attention, and that's what they want. Due to this, they are rarely serious and opt to hop around and laugh uncontrollably at minor things instead of looking at a situation in a serious light, no matter how deadly.


Disgusting creatures. What they look like under their suits doesn't matter anymore. They're all the same now. They fought so hard against each other over minor differences in looks, now they have lost all their vanity. How does it feel, to have no skin? All humans look like old astronaut gear, which they can never take off. Simple, LIKE THEM. Their face cannot be seen unless you get close.

Don't do that. For you will go mad.


The husses are very creative and will solve issues in the most creative way they can think of to a fault. They are known for talking in puns as they believe it is the greatest of comedy and humor is held highly to husses. An easy way to impress a husse is to tell them a great joke.


A hyuran colony's personality is usually a composite of both the original AI's personality and the personality of the colony, which is generally helpful when possible, but self serving. As such, their traits depend on the AI inhabited.


Ibelluts are organized and studious about their work. Design and appearances are important to them, and the insect shells they wear generally have some sort of personal flair to them, being spiffed up with paint or other accessories. Hobbies in the arts often lead to proudly showing off their detailed creation and asking for advice. If an ibellut is uncomfortable with their physical appearance or feels too afraid not to have an anonymous lifestyle, wearing masks or full body coverings made from their insect shells is not unheard of. This is not to say that most ibelluts prefer to be perfectly preened at all times, but rather that if there is a prettier alternative to their appearance, they will take it.
