Violnyn are a species of mysterious cephalapod-looking silicon-based organisms native to the cool, dim, and mysteriously life-filled brown dwarf of Palos in the Akrodan Junction of the Palioxis Starfield. As highly expansionist species, Violnyn have taken themselves all across the local cosmos, even going as far founding a vast interstellar civilization known as the Theoracy of Palos. This nation is currently operating under the supreme emperor of Dhe'eyg The Tenth, the most powerful individual of their entire species.
The Violnyn are one of few species capable of directly inhabiting stars and extremely high temperature planets. Violnyn can also inhabit over 90% of the universe's worlds, making them some of the most widely spread sapient species.
Violnyn are one of the few species with such a terrible reputation, with a long history of warfare and horrors, involving civil wars that spanned in multiple systems in the past. With the passage of time, they have buried their previous disputes and developed into a more harmonious race.
Violnyn greatly resemble cephalapods, however their biology is far different than any other creature ever discovered. Their bodies are entirely sustained by complex nuclear fusion, keeping them alive. Violnyn are theoretically immortal, only dying when the nuclear fusion stops inside their body, which usually takes seven thousand years. Attempts for increasing the length of this process have been made, however none have yet to be successful. Violnyn have an ability to levitate above the ground by creating a repulsive force.
Violnyn, with their impressive resistance to extremely low and high pressure, and no need to breathe have the ability to withstand the dark and empty vacuum of space, easily thriving in it. Covering Violnyn is a hard organic temperature and damage resistant material, allowing them to thrive essentially everywhere. As such, many groups of Violnyn immigrated to Toverra, starting their process of evolution into the sapient spacefaring species they are today. The abnormal properties above give Violnyn the ability to thrive and survival on virtually every world in existence.
Many tentacles drop down from their small central body of around two meters in height and four meters in length. The amount of tentacles is unique on each individual, though there are usually five to ten, with 80% of the individuals having eight tentacles. These tentacles have the ability to generate electric current, making them effective as weapons, while most of the time they are used to manipulate the environment, like limbs. The coloration of the top shell and tentacles of Violnyn varies per individual, however the most common colors and black and blue.
Violnyn reproduce by splitting themselves into two identical individuals, then fusing with another split individual. After this process, the newborn Violnyn make themselves a cocoon of radioactive elements, allowing the atoms to mix with their bodies, and to initiate the nuclear fusion inside them. After ten hours of being in the cocoon, the Violnyn emerges, fully matured.
Stellar Violnyn is the rarest type of Violnyn, characterized by their unique horns extruding from their top shell, along with the coloration of their top shell, which looks like a nebula. They make up approximately a little over 0.01% of the Violnyn population. Dhe'eyg The Tenth is a notable Stellar Violnyn.
