Yithian WIP

Yithian WIPsooo  i am building a Yithian

The Miniature is still missing its head-tentacles, the trumpet like organ and 3 points to add the arms, also i will most likely add a slug like foot ….allthough i dont know how to do that yet

The Great Race … waxed well-nigh omniscient, and turned to the task of setting up exchanges with the minds of other planets, and of exploring their pasts and futures. It sought likewise to fathom the past years and origin of that black, aeon-dead orb in far space whence its own mental heritage had come – for the mind of the Great Race was older than its bodily form. . . The beings of a dying elder world, wise with the ultimate secrets, had looked ahead for a new world and species wherein they might have long life; and had sent their minds en masse into that future race best adapted to house them – the cone-shaped beings that peopled our earth a billion years ago.

—H. P. Lovecraft, “The Shadow Out of Time”

The original bodies of the Yithians are never described, since they use their advanced technology to jump their consciousness through time and space into new bodies. The Cretaceous Yithians, who had escaped their own extinction by projecting themselves to Earth, used the body of a large invertebrate creature, who resembled a rugose cone topped by a pair of clawed appendages, a long trumpet (presumably a feeding organ) and a yellow orb-like sensory organ on a stalk, sliding around on a sluglike mucous foot.

The cone like creatures inhabited by the Yithians are asexual and grow children around the bottom of their bodies. Reproduction is rare as a Yithian typically lives for long periods of time. Young Yithians are brought up by there parents, though later familial relationships usually are not given importance. Yithians do however form bonds with the same generational groups.
