About Gondalus

One of the most feared creatures in the Apantida sector is the Gondalus, hailing from the world of Raa, a planet famous for it's spectacular lightning and fascinating clouds.  Aside from insects and tiny mammals who live on Raa, the Gondalus basically has the run of the entire planet for itself.  

Reaching over 30 UM's in height (universal measures, which is about 50 meters to us here on Earth), the Gondalus roams the giant world looking for food, or else looking for combat with another Gondalus worthy of its attention.  They are a solitary race, simply because they breed so infrequently, live so long (4000 of our years here in the Sol system).  

Covered in horns and spikes, and with skin so thick that most weapons cannot even scratch it much less damage the immense creature, a day on Raa lasts 500 of our hours, and so it is a long day for these beings, who seems very imposing just to catch a glimpse of them.  

However, it is a common misconception that a typical Gondalus is a race based on violence.  Rather, your average Gondalus fight simply as a way of socializing with one another, since they rarely see each other.  There is no concept of family with this race - they see each other as equals, and no matter their relationship to each other, such as parent to child, grandparent or simply a neighbor, they treat each other the same. 

One bit of trivia about the Gondalus is that they grow to their full size within 6 of our Earth weeks of being born.  They are seen as hermaphrodites, having the ability to procreate with themselves to create offspring, which they do every millennia or so out of some ancient inborn habit more than any kind of sentimental reason.

The main goal of the Gondalus is just to rest a lot, taking a 3 week bath in what are essentially craters filled with a sort of static electricity from all of the lightning on the planet.  Occasionally, while in repose in these craters, they are struck by a giant bolt of lightning, which they particularly enjoy.  The cloud cover on Raa is spectacular, and clouds start at about 150 AT's (Apantidian Transits or 300 kilometers to us Earthlings).  The cloud cover on Raa ranges in types and sizes, and goes up into the higher altitudes for another 6000 AT's before reaching the rim of space.

If, in the event anyone tries to come to Raa for any reason, which the reason is usually so that offworlders can get minerals and other valuable things only found on Raa to take offworld to sell (fuel, gems, Kiteteelez blood, mane of Baunjor, etc), the Gondalus has an innate sense of the presence of a trespasser on their world and this inborn sense usually sends the closest 500 or so Gondalus to converge on the ship of the intruders, where the Gondalus "sweevga" (essentially an army) can usually dismantle and dismember a ship and its crew within minutes, and then spend the following few hours featuring on their blood and bones, as well as consuming the ship in its entirety until no signs of any intrusion remains. 

At the same time, there is a layer of clouds about half way through the planets shroud which are actually technically "alive", and will eat any sort of electronic or telepathic signal going offworld for help, or any kind of alert.  As such, Raa is a rarely visited planet, since even when a larger army goes to Raa to try and wrestle some control away from the Gondalus, before too long, that army or crew eventually ceases to exist, mysteriously, despite coming to Raa in the millions and with formidable weaponry in tow.
