Ezburu [sing. Ezbur](first “u” is like that in put, rest is pretty standard English)
Alien chordata species with four pseudo-exoskeletal limbs and one “regularly boned” set (the forearms with the three digit hands). Ezburu are creatures from an alternate plane of existence* that is essentially the equal and opposite of Eden’s with various meshpoints if one knows how to get to them. Their noises are like those of vinyl scratches to human ears, distorted in our universe just like their coloration, which is actually in a spectrum that is not present in our universe but becomes black and white here. They are a colonial sapient species with an organization vaguely similar to that of ants. Young Ezburu are larval and reach adult height and intellectual maturity before they leave the stage. Once they have grown enough, specific hormones are administered into their receptor auxiliary antenna (the long projections with the notches) by the established Regal class, essentially a class of elders as it is reached only after the reproductive systems and others have shut down in exchange for hormone production and distribution. Due to the nature of their four weight-bearing limbs, given the proper hormones prior to their next molt, it is possible but expensive calorie-wise to morph into another class if given the right chemicals.
(all are true hermaphrodites that would be capable of reproducing with themselves if they could actually carry the eggs)
Ezburu previously had a symbiote relationship with the native sentiens of Lares. Unfortuately, they have gone exinct and the Ezburu have since seen a decline in their own civilization. To return it to its former glory the modern Ezburu hope to create a similar relationship with the human “invaders” of Lares and after nearly two hundred years of study they believe they are ready to send someone off to encounter them face-to-face. The council decides Serthan should be the guinea pig, especially sense ey is so obsessed with humans to begin with and is one of the few decently fluent in English and even a little Spanish, and sends him off.
(and that’s basically how Eden and Serthan end up knowing each other)

~*~ sci-fi~*~ project notes
Because I wanted to see something that really got into the nitty gritty details of a character.
I tried to organize it into sections and equalize the amount of writing you’d be doing each day, but obviously that’s going to vary from character to character. Good luck, and may the force be with you.
probs doing this
