Ougham

The Invisible State of O An eternal enigma to most other races, the Ougham are set apart from all others in that they are not only unfamiliar with the true concept of individuality, but they are not technically animals either. descending from plant life has given them a totally different view on life than that of their animal counterparts. Since they are never separated from one another and do not need a partner to procreate, they do not tend to form communities, instead opting to wander alone or occasionally in the company of other creatures for the sake of gathering information. The Ougham themselves consider themselves a unified mental community and often refer to themselves as the "O". As a race they are curious and patient, and generally hold no grudges or dislikes toward any other races. While they do what they can to keep a friendly demeanor, the subtleties of interpersonal relationships escape them due to the nature of their collective consciousness. When an Ougham refers to themselves using "I" or "me", they are referring to the entire race, or the "O". They can be perceived as aloof or even emotionally stunted by those who are not familiar with them, but they show emotion only when things affect them as a whole, so fear and other emotions are incredibly rare. The fact that they are physically translucent means they are used to not being noticed or being ignored and they have developed a way of life around this. It is not uncommon for an Ougham to stand in a corner or in an alley and just spend days watching and absorbing all the information that they can from that spot. These peaceful creatures rarely fight and never amongst themselves. Even though the possibility of a disagreement can happen within the collective, the information being passed back and forth happens so fast that these are resolved before most people paying attention would even know it had happened at all. When an altercation does arise that the Ougham cannot escape from, they are quick to retreat or use their innate abilities or other skills to subdue any threat quickly, as the collective feels all the pain of the individual. Each Ougham does have a unique skillset, as, just as any "body" functions, each part must fulfill their role building some form of diversity within the race to allow for growth through some small form of unique ability and keeping the entire collective whole from growing stagnant and predictable, thereby becoming an easy target for manipulation and even harm.
