#25 – Xylhopi

| November 27, 2011 | 4 Comments

In the time after man, our world will pass between several ages of freedom from any tyrannical ruling races- the meek shall once again inherit the earth, nature will take it’s course, and after millions of years, most of the remnants of mankind’s rule will be gone.

Then shall come the Xylhopi.

Of course, such a name as this means nothing to a race of creatures that has no verbal language.The closest parallel to their biology would be highly intelligent giant cuttlefish, but their own philosophies seem to have them set up as travellers from long ago, finally returned home. Their flight and other powers are from their psionic minds- they cannot die, and are immortal, like the hydra- a natural evolution to the highest order.

    This is an excellent piece. It reminds me of some of the extraterrestrials in my science fiction works. Would you be interested in producing some similar commissions or projects in tandem? I have at least two races, the Corvans and the Lorissans. I also have some racial variants of the Corvans called the Atavistics. Check out Day 23 in my listings: http://wp.me/p14Fot-4FH.

    This is majestic! I can almost feel the moment of silence witnessing just an event would demand!
