Description[edit | edit source]
Anatomy & Physiology[edit | edit source]
Ploorans' anatomy varies dramatically based on the environment surrounding them. In spring, Ploorans resemble eyeless flatfish with four legs. In summer, they are squat, heavyset creatures with four pillar-like legs and four tentacles. They are reddish in color, and have an ovoid head with no orifices of any kind. during this phase, they are blind and do not need to breathe. Autumn Ploorans are insectoid in appearance. In winter, Ploorans become multi-dimensional, amorphous creatures, similar to the Eich. These changes are initiated by the ambient temperature, not time; a Plooran in a climate-controlled environment will remain in the appropriate form until it leaves.
Diet[edit | edit source]
Summer-stage Ploorans get energy from the heat and light of their home star. What they feed on during other stages is unknown.
Powers & Abilities[edit | edit source]
Ploorans wield tremendous psychic abilities, exceeded only by Eddorians and Arisians. They can communicate with and influence others from interplanetary ranges, and kill other beings with a thought.
