Physical Description

A cat-like head with a tentacled underbody, the gignes are semi-telepathic beings which can communicate over long distances as long as there aren’t too many walls in the way. Their coloration ranges in all sorts of garish neon hues, with their transparent tentacles being darker in colour than the thin fur covering their feline features.

The gignes are born genderless, developing sexual characteristics only after they've found a suitable mate. Because of their relatively short life-span and their tendency to be picky about choosing their mates, most gignes mate for life.

Due to their unique energy-dependant physiognomy, their brains are in fact responsible for distributing caloric energy throughout the body in the form of negatively charged lithium, sodium and calcium ions which travel along their nerve-system to their peripherals. There, they become protonated through a process resembling photosynthesis. This also results in them producing oxygen from ingested water, just like most plants. They may additionally burn ingested calories so that they are not really dependent on breathing oxygen, just maintaining their moisture. Their digestive system uses an ammonia solution instead of acids and the nutrients are bound to nitrogen by special enzymes for transport.

Personality & Traits

When a gigne dies, their most valued inheritance is not any physical wealth they might have accrued. but their core repository. This can be assimilated by another gigne, endowing them with all the past gigne's memories.

They will at times inhabit an empty robot body as protection.


Not important / Unknown.






• Gignes believe that knowledge should be open-sourced. As such almost every gigne is self taught at their skills. Gignes schools are optional (and free) and gignes are encouraged to gain data on the trade they wish to learn at one of the many mega libraries they have.

• Because of the unique way gignes look at education and knowledge, everything is extremely well documented. One can go to a mega library and check how people thought about a certain subject 1000 years ago and than check what people currently think about the subject matter.

• Gignes aren't too fond of notails. While the gignes are all about sharing info, notails are the opposite and are very closed-source, not giving anything out until they feel like doing so. The gignes and notails tend to have heated debates at intergalactic conferences.
