These "giant polyps" are an alien form of life that was unexpectedly discovered on the planet Vargon III.
Biology[edit | edit source]
Nothing is known about these creatures other than that they seem to dwell in tunnels created by volcanic vents, and that their planet was believed to be a barren, life-less world; until the polyps came up and "snared" the first Human explorers.
