Block Alien[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Block Aliens are often turquoise or light blue, assorted, small, angular blocks, with the torso being a wavy energy core, all floating, making a pattern that resembles an existing creature


Most of the history of the Block Alien is gone, as their planet got destroyed, and it is thought that they simply floated through space until they ended up here. Older Block Aliens don't have distinct facial features, but younger ones do, with floating eyes, and a distinct mouth. This is because the younger ones grew up around others who had these facial features, while the older ones did not.


Block Aliens often live alone, some live in burrows, others in trees, or dens. they are fascinated by animals in nature, and try to imitate them, hence why they live in burrows, trees, or dens. Ones that live near communities are often compared to the actual animal they are imitating, and treated well.

Block Alien Names[edit]

Block Aliens do not have names from their planet, as much of their history is lost, so they take names from surrounding culture instead, often words referring to animals. They have unisex names, as they don't have a different sexes

Names: Herd, Pack, Murder, Diurnal, Beak, Canid, Flock, Swarm, Barbs, Agnathan
