Attack Method: Fleetomine do not attack their targets, due to life as a peaceful species. They can absorb damage through their bodies, as they do not feel pain from it.
Fleetomine dont seem to worship any god in particular, as there are no ritual practices of their own seen on their planet. Recently, however, some have taken to creating tapestries honoring various Limbo gods.
The fleetomine are small crystalline rocks of clear coloration, capped off at the bottom with remnants of the cave in which one is born. These crystals are sharp and jagged unless polished, and appear to be carbon-based. They start their lives in the caverns, fused into the rock itself. As the crystal grows over thousands of years, the fleetomine will slowly grow its powers.
After they are finished growing, the crystal will drop onto the ground and onto a wooly fauna. Fleetomines will then gently take enough wool to form the base of their body. Over time they will become made of various fabrics and patchwork, always in the shape of an animal. The details of each body varies between fleetomines and can be of any fabrics, including those artificially made.
Fleetomine also have the psychic power to manipulate fabric at will, only requiring the fabric to be touched in order to be shaped. This power is called Fabric-Mancy and is unique to the fleetomine as of their discovery.
After a thousand years of being mobile, the powers within a fleetomine starts to leave it, after which they will start to erode and soon, cease movement.
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. They do not understand the concept of purposefully hurting someone or taking what is others.
The species has since adapted to be more cautious, but still remains naive to the harsh conditions to the universe.
The history of the fleetomine and their home planet of Texitille has been recorded in thousands of tapestries within the very center of their civilization. Dating back to millions of years, fleetomine spent most of their history within the caves they grew in- only recently joining the rest of the universe.
They were once just a small community of shepherds and artists who remained in an endless cycle of friendship and comfort. Eventually, other species landed on Texitille and discovered the fleetomine, introducing them to the technology and knowledge the rest of the universe had to offer.
And so the species of rock and patchwork began their new life on the surface, plush arms open wide for friendship.
Texitille is dotted with holes, leading into caverns and ravines filled with minerals and plant life suited to living underground. The surface of the planet is comprised of plains with fields of cotton-like flora and a species of ungulate mammals that produce wool.
There are several small towns on the surface where some fleetomine live, but the major cities are only found underground and carved in rock.
Leathermine: There is a 1 in 15,000 chance that a fleetomine will not be able to control fabrics, but rather skin and leather instead. The bodies made out of these materials are tougher and harder to move and manipulate, as well as "disturbing" to many species who see one.
Doublemine: The growing crystals of a fleetomine may end up growing close enough in proximity that when it is time to exit the cavern walls, both Fleetomine will be fused together. This produces a doublemine that must make a larger body to accommodate for the increased size, which often appears as multi-headed. Psychic powers are neither reduced nor enhanced in this state.
Cloth Manipulation: Able to quickly design and manipulate fabrics in as detailed and efficient a manner is the psychic ability the fleetomine possess. However, this psychic ability only extends to the fabric they are able to touch physically.
• Around 3% of the universe's fabric decorations and toys are made by fleetomine.
• When asked whether the crystal or the fabric construct is the real fleetomine, the majority of answers are simply shrugs. Ripping open the fabric body to find out is technically not murder, but still frowned upon.
• Placing a fleetomine's crystal into the hollow body of a stuffed doll allows it to control the doll as it's own body. This has become very popular among the species.
