Kilipsy the mene-gesis. by smileykaya Kilipsy the mene-gesis. by smileykaya
I freaking hate my imagination! It won't shut the hell up!!!

Anyway, this happened.

Meet Kilipsy, or sometimes called 'Killy' (unfortunately) for an even shorter version. Her full name is Lioukilipsenees Etouridaneria Deddaratti Outanamashou... Quite a mouthful! It translates into human as something like 'Blessed child of the 7500th generation.' Anyway, she comes from a race of aliens who, like her, are big on being colourful and having plenty of plumage. She is a rather bubbly character full of spirit, but at her core a noble one indeed, despite being such a tender age (their equivalent to 13 or 14. It's difficult to tell since they have no concept of time.) She is one of the two leaders of the earth exploration fleet, the other being a male a year or two older than her, who just so happens to be her 'mate.'

She has six ears, all feathered, four legs and two arms, plus two eyes for detecting light radiation and colour and five other smaller eyes for picking up UV and infared. They see colour more vividly than we can, and can detect the tiniest of movements from afar. Unfortunately, their sense of smell is profoundly weaker than ours, they rely heavily on hearing and sight. As their planet is a little smaller than ours, flight is possible, although on earth they can only glide unless they are particularly small ones who can manage some sustained flight. Oxygen is also 3% higher on their planet and it is much warmer and humid, so these aliens tend to do better in our rainforests and still need to lug emergency oxygen packs around in case one starts having a panic attack to prevent them from completely passing out. (Imagine a human atop mount Everest.)
Only a few inches high, the race are pretty vulnerable, but not uncommon on their planet. They are powerless, but are very intelligent and philosophical, and have managed to keep bickering among tribes to a minimum (most of the time.) As for technology, everything technological is based around the manipulation of gravity, which unfortunately means they haven't advanced in many of the other fields much (heck, they don't even have television! And still use wooden legs instead of cybernetic limbs.) Really, the only other breakthrough invention is the radio and radio communicator, although these are still relatively in their early stages...

They worship gravity, basically, and the Goddess of it who they call Muvuekthee. They believe that the universe is held by a sentient bond of sorts, and that gravity doesn't stop merely for matter, but for emotions, too. It draws people to planets and people to people and so on so forth...
Mene-gesis literally means 'little ones', although they haven't met humans yet, so what they mean by this is that they are little compared to the universe. Indeed, they are a humble race. The roles of males and females are split, but respected. Men are stronger, so do all the fending off of predators or gathering food or lugging round heavy machinery, while females are the brains and help develop technology. On odd occasions, men have become as smart as a female, and females as strong as men, but brains and brawn are difficult to balance in their species. There is never just one leader, there always has to be two, one female and one male.

Using their gravity machines, they were once able to catch a massive meteorite that nearly destroyed their world, and thus terra-formed it. A few mene-gesis decided to hop aboard, and with gravity machines working to keep this now planetlet together, they were shot off into space in hopes that they would find the Goddess of gravity herself, presumably at the centre of a black hole. Instead, they met with earth, and stopped just above it, eager to explore this very colourful world. It is well known that they are distracted by bright colours, and so, they decided to explore this several thousand mile wide distraction.

This is an idea I had for a story, but it's very much in the works at the moment. I'm thinking it will cover the themes of 'communication', as the aliens end up having to communicate to humans through drawing and music at first. Kilipsy may befriend an artist, the two communicating through painting. She is fascinated by how humans can keep raw colour in magic bottles, (paint, basically.) Also I'm hoping I haven't made too much of an alien sparkledog here XD

Thanks! Hehe, I had to do a lot of re-colouring before I got to this, I'd made it look really mismatched before XD
