Ignel

[species]

Pronunciation: (IG-nell)
Homeworld: Agni
Empire: None

The Ignel are creations of Belin, a Sura of fire, with the express purpose of bringing a new destructive force into existence. The first Ignel were driven mad by Belin's elemental energy, thriving off constant destruction. With each new generation, Belin's energy becomes a little weaker, and the Ignel become that much more tolerable. Modern Ignel are not raving savages, but they still carry a portion of Belin's spirit

Physical description

The Ignel are large creatures with powerful builds. Their flesh is made of stone and their blood is molten metal. Their shoulders are widely set, and their backs have protruding stones that extend up to 18 inches outward. They have broad faces, and their eyes are made from metal which is also molten and appears to have no iris. Their veins run along the surface of their flesh, creating seams of molten metal that can glow with heat and light. Depending on the Ignel's resting body temperature, these veins range in color from a non glowing silver, to red, orange, white, and a soft blue at its hottest. When an Ignel is in an emotionally heightened state, their blood burns hotter, raising the color temperature. A normal heightened state increases the temperature enough to shift the color up by one, for example, from red to orange. An extreme emotional state would turn silver to orange, or possibly even silver to white in a blind rage

At the center of the chest, these molten veins converge into a nexus which has the appearance of a heart. This area is roughly three to six inches across, and three to six inches deep. While the Ignel have mouths and eat normally, when they ingest pure metal they push it directly into this nexus, melting it directly into their blood stream. This is also the mechanism by which the Ignel reproduce. One Ignel produces a small metal nugget in their nexus, which is placed in the nexus of another Ignel. Several days later, a small stone egg is produced which is held in the nexus, hatching roughly three weeks later


Relations

The Ignel as a whole are universally distrusted and avoided, and regularly discriminated against. An individual can, with effort, prove themselves trustworthy and participate in society, though they still face considerable prejudice


Adventurers

The Ignel are not a natrually cohesive species. Some communities of Ignel do exist due to the Ignel's status among the galaxy. Ignel often find themselves falling in with rougher adventuring crews, or those with wider acceptance criteria
