Echobi Creature Concept Sheet

Location  Experiment 18

Echobi use their forelegs to stabilize themselves while running, allowing them to change directions suddenly. Echobi live in complex tunnels in large colonies and their slender bodies allow them to squeeze into tight spaces. They are extremely agile, using their strong legs to leap long distances. They live on the planet Guinviale. The vegetation on the surface grows to enormous sizes, creating tunnels in the roots for them to make their homes.

Experiment 18 is a world building project I started with help from my friend back in college for my capstone project a couple years ago. Trapped on a dying planet, humanity seeks salvation in the stars. But after every effort ends in tragedy, it looks like all hope is lost. Until one day a forgotten experiment suddenly activates, sending a handful of scientific and military personal halfway across the galaxy. Throw into worlds of alien life, both civilized and savage, our protagonists seek the answer to one questions, "If so much life was just beyond our star, why have we never heard from them? Or them from us? With more being manipulated than just politics, will Humanity find a new home amongst the Galaxy at Large, or be relegated to extinction on their blighted world?
