Species name: Ilyxian
Planet name: Lypiopia
Brief: The native planet of the Ilyxian is a small planet with only 10% land mass. The land mass that does exist is lush vegetation. Ilyxians are partly plant based, they have chlorophyll type cells in their skin. This enables them to live in bright light of the correct wavelength without food. If forced to live in the dark, they will slowly starve. When on ships or planets not their home world, they eat fruits almost exclusively.
Species name: Zysophro
Planet name: Kyra
Brief: Zysophro tend toward being brilliant technicians but rarely work well with anyone outside their species, though there are notable exceptions. If you can prove a Zysophro wrong on a point, they can change their path but when there is no proof, they will insist their way is right. Their home world has almost entirely been converted to factories and dwellings, making it necessary for them to colonise nearby areas to grow food.
