The xeno-elytra-arantia, informally called creeps, are a species
of six legged crawlers discovered in the asteroid belt. Their origin is unknown, but scientist
rule out the option they are endemic. Who, or what, has brought them there is unknown.
Creeps are carbon based. The exoskeleton resembles in many ways the one of insects found on
Earth, and grants creeps a resistance of 80HP.
The metabolism is based on exposure to
direct sun light. A dense liquid produced by glands near the mouth is stored in a large
container cavity on the back, protected by a thin but resistant carapace. The dome has a
particular refraction index which allows capturing most photons that hit the surface. An organ
similar to a heart pulses at variable frequency to convert the captured light into usable energy
with surprising efficiency, allowing creeps to run up to 250ups - more than double the speed of
humans. The thick exoskeleton and low internal pressure allows creeps to live in space.
