Tonight’s Creature(s) were first discovered within the sun-baked reaches of the Hymirrsia-Heights on Gossin V.
The Frinn (5B2F) are perfectly adapted to the desert. Their skin is porous, collecting moisture and trapping it within. The skin is a dull white color to absorb heat for surviving cold desert nights. It is also flexible to allow them to hide in crevices with shade.
Frinn are hexapedal with six stumpy legs. There are no toes but a surface area to prevent them from sinking into sand. Antennae are used for signaling other members. As a complex language of signs inform others of danger or food. The fat, stubby tail behind them sweeps away footprints in the sand. As they walk, it swishes left to right erasing.
The most beautiful aspect of the Frinn are they’re sturdy, shiny, and decorative cranial shells. These give them protection from sun and predators. Small versions grow a top their legs for more protection. Unfortunately, these shells are sought after by collectors and Frinn have been hunted to near extinction due to the thirst for them.
Yet, on top of all of these features their most remarkable quality is the small black dot you see in the image. This is actually a twin to the larger Frinn. Always born as twins, sometimes male and male, female and female, or a mixture of genders. Either way, during gestation a majority of the genetic material gets placed into one of the embryos while the rest, which is completely different, forms the secondary, airborne twin. Spending their lives together, the larger Frinn looks for food while the smaller Frinn zooms around searching for distant things such as water, predators, and sandstorms. It is a remarkable dimorphism, rarely seen.
Frinn make good pets and can be easily domesticated. They respond well to kindness, an ample supply of food, and a lot of cuddling. Frinn are a representation of the serene nature and beauty of the desert as opposed to its harshness. They are also a solid example of how opposites really work well together.
