Thyrrus by Monster-Man-08 Thyrrus by Monster-Man-08
"I couldn't bear to watch it writhe. Lord on the Throne - the thrashing! Its colors! What was it trying to say? ...I'll never know."

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. But while most fight for survival, and some for fun, one race does so for the sake of art. The Thyrrus view their entire lives as part of a performance; everyone has a part to play, and free will is an alien notion. The Thyrrus enter the battlefield with flags, bright lasers, luminous war machines, and their natural cuttlefish-like ability to change color and shape... but not anything humans would consider "logic." Sometimes they overkill a small enemy squad, other times the Thyrrus willingly enter hopeless meat grinders. The common thread seems to be racking up a lot of casualties (with no preference on which side's doing the dying), but even that might just be projecting order into chaos...


Warhammer 40,000 -- specifically the book Xenology, a bestiary book with a plot and even a twist ending!

The Thyrrus might be one of my favorite 40k species -- they make such a hilarious counterpoint to the Imperium's straight-laced, self-righteous seriousness. I keep getting this mental image of them turning entire battlefields into enormous, psychedelic disco raves when they turn up.

... Maybe it's trying to say "Party hard!"?
