Slimes are amorphous creatures that lack any kind of defined shape or structure, they just flow around in a blob. Their bodies are composed primarily of a thick, gooey substance that can take on a variety of colours and textures depending on the individual slime's environment and diet, usually shades of green or blue.
Ecology and Habitats
They can be found in a variety of habitats, ranging from damp, dark caves to lush, forested groves. They are most commonly encountered in areas with high levels of moisture, as their bodies require a certain amount of water to function properly. Some curious slimes have made it into the big cities of Alana's humanoids, but there number is rather sparse. People don't like to see them inside their settlements at least in their original blobby shape, and only a few slimes have developed the capability to take the form of a humanoid.
Slimes have long been fascinated by the appearance and behavior of humanoids. They are capable of mimicking the shapes, movements, and even mannerisms of humanoids with remarkable accuracy. In fact, some of the most advanced slimes have become so adept at this mimicry that they are often mistaken for actual humans by unsuspecting observers. Some slimes live undetected in humanoid form in large cities, while some of them keep the slimy look for some of their body, like having a mass of thick purple or green slime hair on the head or shiny clothing. Despite their seemingly innocuous nature, slimes can be surprisingly dangerous when provoked. They are able to engulf and digest creatures that are about the same size as themselves, and some species are known to have acidic or otherwise dangerous bodily fluids. As such, it is important to exercise caution when dealing with these creatures, especially when encountering them in the wild.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Experienced slime hunters and researchers are able to discern a surprising amount of information from these subtle cues, allowing them to understand the creatures' moods, intentions, and even their physical health. Curious slimes who made contact to humanoids tend to learn how to communicate verbal, often mimicking a person they have met. But they are also capable of expressing (and inducing) emotions like happiness or fear by using their chemical secretions. As a result, a terrified slime may frighten a large group of people around it.
