Civilization and Culture


It sprang into being from a seedling that fell into Shadow Star Mines and into a small underground pool of water that hadn't been uncovered by the Ta yet. It was sad to be alone and in the dark. But as it grew in the water, it dug its roots deep and was able to sense the humaniods above. It loved the hatred and cruelty that was happening and it drank it up through the soil, allowing it to grow larger.   It was disappointed when the races made peace. But it had enough nutrients to survive until the Ta found it. Once they did, it bide its time before it started feasting. Eventually it ate everyone on Nisa and had to go into hibernation until Humans showed up and unlocked the mine doors. It feed on a few before it was killed.
