They are the Haolami, foreign entities that are known to explore their universe in search of knowledge.

Breakdown of anatomy

:bulletwhite: They are about 5-6ft (1.6-2m) tall, similar to humans. Therefore they can also wear human clothes~ they don't have to go naked (unless you like that... it's fine, there's no genitals or anything)
:bulletwhite: Lifespan: They will usually deteriorate naturally within 5000 years, though they will deteriorate faster in climates lower than 2000K (3140 F // 1726 C). This is the reason why most don't stay for extended periods of time on the planet Earth, though they do visit cold locations out of their impulse for curiosity and new information.
:bulletwhite: Basically their fluid is similar in function to human blood, though it doesnt really work the same way as our circulatory system. If they lose enough they will cease to function.
:bulletwhite: The fluid while on Earth / other cold locations is slightly thicker than water, though it still remains somewhat transparent. While in their proper temperatures the liquid becomes gaseous
:bulletwhite: Haolami are a combination carbon based life form and something else entirely.
:bulletwhite: They're capable of thought and high-intelligence processes, including speech and other forms of communication.
:bulletwhite: Oxygen is not required for them to survive. It's necessary for them to subsist on nitrogen and noble gasses.
:bulletwhite: They don't weigh very much due to their composition, so they're a bit floaty and light on their feet, though they cannot fly.
:bulletwhite: The "wings" are holograms. They are able to switch them on or off. It's thought that these wings in combination with their body markings display information about the individual, almost like its DNA.
:bulletwhite: Audio communication consists of vibrations and humming. They communicate within the VHF and higher frequency ranges, waaaaayyy out of human's ability to hear. Since VHF+ frequencies are used on Earth for radio telecommunications, sometimes if they're loud enough they can interrupt radio broadcasts.
:bulletwhite: The fluids inside are not in a vacuum, so they follow the pull of gravity.
:bulletwhite: The skeleton/ clear substance is not glass. Though it's transparent and sturdy, it's also flexible to a certain extent, allowing them free range of motion with their legs.

Guide to Rarity Traits


:bulletgreen: N - usual traits. 1-2 eyes. 1-3 horns. 2 arms.

:bulletyellow: R - uncommon traits. 3 eyes. non circular window. atypical skin patterns (more or less skin to conceal their glass-like skeletons). Swirling shape horns, oversized horn(s). Asymmetrical horns.

:bulletred: SR - rare traits. 4 eyes. 4 arms. 4 horns. 

:bulletwhite: UR - unheard-of tier, highly unstable! 5+ eyes, 6+ arms. 6+ horns. 75% or more skin missing. Centaur- or mermaid-like mutations.

Whew~ if you have any other questions about how they work, please ask in a comment! I'll be sure to answer and update you~

Of course if you obtain a Haolami you don't have to strictly follow their lore or anything hahaha~ you can do as you like! ouo b

------

Lore

From somewhere in the universe, there's a planet where Haolami are hatched. Immediately afterwards, they disperse and seek information about how the universe works. For some reason, they seem to gravitate towards one topic, like perhaps energy, a certain planet or organism, the concept of entropy, etc.

Sometimes, they're found wandering into other planets, like Earth.

Each Haolami is different in terms of their moral alignments, though most of them are neutral and want to observe how things work. They usually don't harm humans or animals on purpose.

Interested in a custom? Please check here!
UPDATED Custom Haolami Info - OPENSo you want to assume responsibility for a rogue alien? Don't blame me if something goes wrong! They're all monsters!
But if you really insist on it... the Space Rangers can hunt down and capture one of these errant beings for you, for a nominal fee.
(If you don't know what this species is, check this handy guide~)

The fee for a standard Haolami is currently $30 each
-At this price I do not include any special/unheard of traits, though there is always a slight chance that your custom Haolami does come out with a special feature.
-This slight chance can be raised if you decide to pay any amount over $30 (up to you how much extra you'd like to pay)
-Special traits are anything at SR and UR tiers. (after all, those guys are hard to hunt down. You humans sure are picky!)
-I will only make adjustments once if you are not satisfied with the result, extra adjustments will incur an extra fee. However, you're free to change minor detail


------

Haolami are a closed species that I designed- please do not make one for yourself without my permission.

i have a question, if they dont have gender...could they logicly be classified as biologically non binary? [just curious] also y0u said they re produce asexually, does that mean they don't fall in love since human only fall in love because they need to reproduce [yet asexuals can also  fall in love, but asexuals also have no interest in dating either sometimes just depends ]so i just wounder if they "need" love? [thank you and bye.]

they could be! since that's the case they dont really have gender dimorphism or concept of a difference between them like that. when they visit earth im sure each one will accept whatever they're told they are but not really think it's important, but they're all different. Your Hao can have a preference for what theyre called depending if theyre knowledgeable about human culture or so on!

they all have the same equipment down there, but you can PM me for details about that lol, i think i mustn't post this kind of detail so publicly haha~

I definitely think they can be attracted to others! At the same time humans don't really need love in order to reproduce either lol

Question, I bought an adopt from you of this species.

Would it be possible for said Haolami to be allowed to enroll in a school as a foreign exchange student?

That sounds acceptable to me! They're naturally curious as a species anyways, so I bet they would love to learn at a school~
Have fun!

Question, what are their species abilities?

They are very adept learners, their natural inquisitive personalities and agile minds allow them to problem solve quickly.
However, it does take them a while to adjust to human culture, so they might be awkward at first.

They are extremely light, so in Earth's atmosphere they float just above the ground surface and glide from place to place. They're able to flicker on and off their hologram wings, which they use for communication amongst their own species. To humans i think it just looks cool, hehe.

Idk if this is considered a power or a nuisance but they speak on the same wavelength as radio waves, causing interference if they desire.

Let me know if you have other questions! Of course it's merely a suggestion, so you're free to make up other abilities/powers for your Haolami if you so wish!

These are so cool! >X 3 Would it be okay if i made a similar open species? the only thing i would use is the whole liquid in clear body parts thing ;u;
i'd credit you as the inspiration if youd like? ;u;

EDIT: And I'd like to make some point adopts of them as well, would that also be okay?

Im sorry, but this is practically a rip off of Boozesharks. You know.... the closed species created by KatVizionz 

A species that came out back at the end of 2014, beginning of 15. 

So I wouldnt find it wise that you or your followers claim that others are stealing YOUR closed species, when they didnt, when you did yourself.
