Physical Description

Describing a geiger is a difficult task. Looks vary so widely from individual to individual it's hard to nail down something specific, but there are traits almost all geigers tend to share.

Geigers have elongated bodies with arched backs and long, powerful hind legs in contrast to their short front legs. Many tend to walk on all fours, but some choose to stand upright. The snout is very square, with a heartbeat monitor on the front. The front of the lower jaw is a breathing vent. The eyes have narrow, sideways pupils. Geigers always have lights on their chest and belly connected by a line, all of which glow and can be any shape. Additionally, geigers have mechanical tails that vary in size and shape.

Geigers can come in any color but are typically earthy colors. Some green geigers have been noted to be capable of photosynthesis.

Geiger mouths usually lack tongues and teeth and that is where their clockwork slime is produced. Although safe, geigers can shoot it at people if necessary.


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. Geigers love talking. They will talk about anything to anyone because of how tight knit their communities are. Geigers friendliness and compassion drives them to fight for better rights for clockworks.

A common pasttime for geigers is something they call steaming. It is when they fill up their boilers with water and blow out the steam forcefully, cleaning out their air vents of mucus. Many geigers view this action as therapeutic and do it to de-stress.


For most of geiger history, they have lived in colonies, or tribes. It was fairly primitive before they were discovered. Everything was taught by family or friends until recently when the Jt'knik tribe created learning institutions for teaching basic skills such as math and reading.

The one notable event in geiger history is The Great War, in which plain geigers fought against snowbounds in an attempt to take over their territory. The war raged for 12 years before plain geigers surrendered and agreed to peace. This event is known as the most tragic in geiger history, as millions of lives were lost.

Home Planet

Jetekesia is a very deserted land with plant populations sparsely spread out. Geiger towns dot the planet, and rarely, cities.


Snowbound: Bulkier and fluffier, snowbound geigers are bigger than their plain counterparts. Snowbound geigers also have much less exposed in terms of mechanical bits. Snowbounds are also very voracious as they use their boilers to regulate heat, and living in cold regions means they have to keep extra warm.

Aquatic: Aquatics have shorter, less curved bodies, are typically furless, and sometimes scaly. They commonly have fish-like features such as fins and live on coasts and underwater.

Armored: Covered in plates and aggressive, never mess with one of these folk. They are capable of ripping your head off in one quick movement, which unfortunately was found out the hard way. Really, not much is known about armored geigers, but what is know is that they reside deep in deserts and are very territorial. It is unknown if they are sapient.




• Geigers are capable of measuring radioactivity levels and can display it on their screen.

• Geigers have an unusual fondness for humans.

• Sometimes geigers are kept as pets because they are very doglike and willing to live such a lifestyle.
