I really do like Beryl a lot so far in this story.  That sweet, curious innocence of hers is definitely growing on me.

I do feel sorry for the Loroi, though.  There must be a lot of lonely lives with that 8 to 1 ratio.

Well... would mankind really be at odds with forming an alliance with them?  The human women might complain but... =P

I meant Loroi friends. Humans are unusual in the animal kingdom in that we pair bond and have sex year-round to reinforce that pair bond (instead of breeding only yearly during the rutting season). Loroi do not pair bond, and so they will need other (non-sexual) ways to satisfy their need for intimacy. They do it through telepathy and non-sexual same-gender friendships.

Yet did I read right that the males of the Loroi species require constant, intimate attention?  I assumed it was of the sexual variety since Beryl quizzed Alex on whether the same applied with his race so as to cater to his needs, etc.

lol, that said, would love to read more about this universe you've put together. So far it's intriguing. =)

Loroi males are accustomed to frequent sexual contact, yes. Whether they "require" it, as Beryl asserted, is open to debate. But I should have specified in the above comment that I was referring specifically to Loroi females.

There is more in the Insider section, if you haven't found that yet:

Thanks for that.  After reading about the Loroi specifically I have to say I'm deeply impressed with how much depth you've given them.  I've done similar for my own universe on a similar scale though I tend to focus more on this stuff with imperfect, personalised information.  By that I mean I tell it from the perspective of a scholar who might use guesswork to fill in holes more ancient lore would bring, deducing what seems like a rational explanation, etc.

But yeah, your stuff is definitely a fun read.  The world-building is as interesting as the comic itself. =)

If he can mentally detect Fire blade I wonder if Fire blade can detect him and how his presence appears on her mental landscape? Perhaps the effect is mirrored, that his mental presence is like a patch of living shadow in her world of lights?
