Del Chai

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Made up an alien species over the summer. Started when I was mowing the lawn and hit a flower. Some pollen brushed off onto my butt. And, of course, the first thought into my head was 'The flower tried to pollenate my butt!!!' And thus, the Del Chai were born. Part plant, part mammal. The females being more like animals than plants, and the males being more like plants than animals. This is a Barbie that I poked, painted, pulled, and glued into looking like a Female Del Chai (that's the word for Female, I've thought this through too much). The tattoos on her head mean she's a priest(which is why she's dressed so consertivly); the one's on her arm are her village tattoo and of age tattoo; and the one on her leg is her individual tattoo. Her skin is green because there is chlorophyl in the cells. The hair bits are called filathen, and this is where the pollen lands to fertilize and stuff. And yes, she has horns, they have extra vertibra in their neck to increase fexibility, and the can fight with the spikes. The eyes look like crystal. Del Chai don't have pupils or lenses, instead they have layers of photoreceptive cells, they see in focus in a 180 degree area, and objects that are at different distances are in focus at the same time too.
