The Miali
« on: July 19, 2007, 11:35:16 pm »
 Seeing as how my first creature was a total bombshell, I've done a second one will a huge amount of work/time put into it. I've had no idea of the end result, and started with Gen 1 in my head, the first Miali ancestor. Crappy pictures I know, but it's the thought/time/huge amount of work pixel by pixel that counts right?.... Right??? I've also used the C.A.S. characteristics. Also I like the way the Wexxian format goes, so I'll be using it for the most part, there are differences though. Go look at the Wexxians if you haven't already!

 Miali's Oldest Ancestor




 Miali's Closest Ancestor



 The Creature Miali



 Eligeco's Picture of a Miala



 Creature Editor Miala



My crappish creature editor making of a Miala. Keep in mind the top part is susposed to be curved, they just didn't include any good curved parts.

 Tribal Miala



Primitive camouflauge-attuned leather, a simple spear, and markings beleived to grant power.

 Older Miala Infantry:(without weaponry, plus the arms are more accurate)



All life on Yuva now requires some form of protection outside the Shields.

 Miali Holder (genetically removed):

Holder:



Quite bloated, not to mention the arms and legs have shrunken. The eyes have enlarged though, so that the holder is more aware of it's surroundings. If they could walk they'd have a bit of a waddle.

 Species Traits :



Intelligent
Timid

 Brain Level



Civilization Level

 Civilization Traits:

Scientific
Industrious

 Current Government



The Miali work as a Collective, but they are also individuals, and collectively vote upon issues as they arise.

 Stage



Space.

 The Miali Homeworld, Yuva (Destroyed)



Yuva was one of 6 large moons in orbit of Yuvia, a gas gaint which was the 3rd planet out from the Yuvan Sun.

Singular: MialA
Plural: MialI
(Just a note)

 Type:

Some form of Animal

 Habitat:

 They thrive in jungles, which their planet is covered in, but perish in most other habitats. They have a huge need for water and heat, so they might survive in the desert if they could find a large source of replenishing water.

 Lifestyle:

Pack Hunter

 Appearance:

Normally green. However they have the incredible ability to camouflauge themselves almost instantly. They're very hard to find when they don't want you to find them without supplementing normal sight with thermal heat seeing or some other kind of second sight. When hunting they'll surround their prey without the prey being one bit wiser, as they move the camouflauge adjusts itself if they move into something they don't match with. When they're like this, only their red eyes are noticeable. They have three eyes, two are used for normal perception, and the third eye sees in thermal. This makes moving at night as easy as moving during the day, along with the added bonus of your prey being seeable. The third eye came as a result of many creatures on Yuva possessing atleast moderate, unchanging camoflauge.

 Lifespan:

Miali usually die after 75 Earth years, or about 150 Yuva years as the planet is closer to the Yuvan Sun. Young Miali lack their advanced form of camoflauge until about 4 years old, when their neural systems are advanced enough to register their surroundings and replicate them, but at that age it's still difficult to do. Adult Miali are around 10 years old, with only 2 years worth of being adolescent, the 8-10 year period. Their being exponentially declining in health around 70 years of age. This 5 year period is commonly known as the Death Years, where the majority Miali commit suicide by plunging off a cliff rather than suffer years of agony. At the bottom of these cliffs can be found the many bodies of the elder Miali, a horrid stench drifts for miles around, replusing most and attracting other creatures.

 They usually incapacitate their prey and bring them back to a safe spot. Here they use their three mouths for two different purposes, the side two only serve to extract the blood from the victims major veins, while the middle one breaks the victim's neck so that it doesn't struggle, and then extracts blood as well. Their graspers evolved to ease fighting in the event the prey figured out what was going on. They have a variety of uses, mainly to smash and break the prey's bones, or otherwise disable/disorient the prey. Miali are also pack animals, and they're known to be able to ambush entire herds of animals, with little to no injury on their side. Common ambushes are suddenly appearing in all but one direction, forcing the herd into the only direction, which often contains some sort of natural death-trap or just a whole lot hidden Miali. They are relatively small at only 3 ft. tall, and 4 ft. long. (Translation to meters would be nice if anyone posted it.)

 Reproduction

 Miali reproduction is quite simple. There are a male and a female, with the female laying around 10 eggs. However there is a third gender that has no part in fertilization, but exists solely to carry the eggs. The female passes the eggs to an Egg Holder. Egg Holders are easily seen, as they're usually quite large, and carried by other Miali. They're very lazy as well, and don't go out on hunts. Most packs have a primary egg holder, and a secondary one, who takes over duties should the primary holder die. The entire pack is built around the primary egg holder, with all orders and commands given by the holder to the rest of the pack. Usually their in the middle, resting on top of 2 other Miali, and directing the pack. Birth rates are around 20% Holder,  40% Male, 40% Female. Holders can usually hold a maximum of 100 eggs, if needed.

 History
B.C.= Before Civilization

        B.C  Miala Evolution
1      A.C. First Tribes Appear
138   A.C. First Real Cities Founded
145   A.C. Records of first Nation-State
293   A.C. Emergence of Ziani Imperium, The Ziani Imperium is seen as the First Golden Age of the Miali. The Imperium ruled over half of Yuva.
1173 A.C. Collapse of Ziana Imperium, Imperium collapses because of corruption, splintering into many smaller nations. End of the First Golden Age. Age of Conflict begins, with many wars and bids for power made by the splinter nations.
1958 A.C. Just before the 2nd Millenium, the Zaar Republic gains control over the remains of the Ziana Imperium, either destroying or assimilating it's rivals.
1969 A.C. The short-lived Zaar Republic collapses due to rebellion and enormous economic problems due to a small comet hitting and damaging the environment.
2000 A.C. 2nd Millenium is only celebrated with depression, death, and fear.
2403 A.C. Treaty of Melio brings peace and prosperity back to the Maili people, jumpstarting the 2nd Golden Age.
2759 A.C. 2nd Golden Age ends as conflict once more begins, with the want for new land across the oceans at the root of the problem. The Colonial Age begins.
3000 A.C. The 3rd Millenium is celebrated with cannon shots, ship battles, and diplomatic takeovers. No one is even sympathetic of the Native Maili on the land across the sea.
3105 A.C. Treaty of Colonization divides up the land between the main powers, ends warfare between them as well, but increases the destruction of Native Maili already living on the land.
3405 A.C. All land on Yuva has been claimed, and tentions rise between the primary powers. The inventor Yulaa Geo begins the Industrial Revolution with the creation of the first steam-powered machine. Some historians argue if the next years should be the 3rd Golden Age, because of such huge economic growth, but the accepted thought is that because there was war, it was not a Golden Age.
3472 A.C. World War I begins, with all the nations of Yuva at war. The slow appearance of more modern tactics, coupled with leaps ahead in weaponry and armor, turn it into one of the bloodiest wars in Miali history.
3480 A.C. Treaty of Yuvan Peace declares WWI over, and the Miali people go home to rebuild and repair their desimated nations.
3489 A.C. The Epic Collapse. The collapse of almost all econimics and trade eventually leads to a 79% unemployment rate, as many businesses across Yuva shut down. This period of time is generally recognized as the 3nd lowest era, behind the Comet Impact of 1969.
3537 A.C. A new organization is formed, designed to bring the Miali people out of the Epic Collapse, this organization was known as United Yuva. Their goal was to unite the planet in peace and prosperity once again.
3589 A.C. A little over 50 years of hard work by U.Y. leads to 3rd Golden Age.(atleast the one that most historians argue)
The 3rd Golden Age is said to be better than both Ages before it combined and doubled. Unimaginable leaps in all parts of society lead to an almost Utopian Yuva for a while. The only time unemployment was in the negatives was in the 3rd Golden Age. There just weren't enough Miali. Funding by the U.Y. of a financial reward upon having more children causes an enormous baby boom. The population of Yuva quadriples in about 40 years, stretching the planets resources to the limit, and often breaking through that limit had new agricultural technology not allowed a more bountiful harvest. Current records indicate nearly 10 Billion Miali came to exist, and the environmental impact was getting to be very noticeable. Pollution was rampant, as the only power came from coal and oil-based systems.
3726 A.C. The first thermonuclear weapon is tested in secret on a city, while the U.Y. blames it on aliens. Most Miali see through this and the U.Y. is thrown off, as many lands break off. In the chaos, nuclear technology is leaked to all the nations.
3730 A.C. A huge nuclear arms race begins in all nations, as entire lines of communication between nations are cut, and borders are closed. Any non-citizen found within a nation is immediately executed. The Miali seem to lose their timidness during this period, as the risk and consequences of nuclear war put a strain on the Maili people. Instead of talking it out, they threaten each other with growing arsenals. Deep down their intelligence tells them it would ruin Yuva and kill the Miali people, however they cannot show this weakness, for the enemy might learn of it and strike. However they don't consider the possibility of the "enemy" also knowing that the consequences far outway any theoretical benefit of a nuclear exchange. In essence, they're all bluffing and wasting their time.
3739 A.C. The 2nd Zaar Republic launches the first artificial satellite into space. Other nations, not to be outdone, quickly divert their nuclear budget to the Mialan Space Race.
3808 A.C. The highly technological United Yuva take the first Miala into space, and also land on Yunia's other 5 moons.
3814 A.C. The other nations finally reach space, only to find that the U.Y. is setting up satellites left and right. A Creed's Fist ship comes near to U.Y. construction ships, which is in the process of building FarStar I. The U.Y. ships have no fear of the C.F., and simply go about their duties. However the C.F. ship's sides suddenly open, revealing an armed H-Bomb installed in a launcher. The U.Y, ships scramble, but the missile launches and hits FarStar 1, obliterating it and all of the U.Y. ships. 318 Mailan lives are lost in the unanticipated back-stab. WWII immediately begins as all the other nations are caught up in the fighting as well. There are many instances of nuclear attacks, which really mess with Yuva's already decaying environment.
3824 A.C. WWII ends as the hugely broken nations of Yuva once again try to rebuild and clean up the environment. A new awareness about Yuva's declining health is born from the nuclear assaults of WWII. Within a decade, the funded switch to wind, solar, and geothermal energy is completed. Nuclear energy was never looked into, as the Miali of that generation feared a meltdown, and a repeat of WWII's horrors. Anything with the word Nuclear in it was literally shunned and put down.
3857 A.C. Yuva's climate is still in a state of decline, which completely stumps the Miali scientists. They could not comprehend why Yuva was still heating up. Almost everything was recycled, and no pollutive energy was used. Obviously something bigger was happening that they would have to look for.
3864 A.C. In a move that stuns the world, the U.Y. completely annihilates all but it's own facilities in orbit, with the use of their new Freedom class fighter that could fly in both air and space. In air the plane had a top speed of mach 10, and even faster in space, but this speed was capped by a computer system long before there to preserve the Mailan pilot. The U.Y. suddenly owned the sky and space.
3862 A.C. All of the other nations quickly respond to the U.Y. sudden aggression, and field their own AaS fighter craft. Suddenly sonic booms are commonplace, and citizens are soon required by law to wear sound-dampening helmets to preserve their sense of hearing. Space was a complete warzone, where squadrons of AaS fighters engaged yet more squadrons of AaS fighters. Salvage ships were created specificly to get the wrecks and return them to Yuva, to be recycled.
3868 A.C. The end of Space War, (which was essentially WWIII, only entirely in secret) saw the return of peace to the skies, and the end of the sonic booms. The law of sound-dampening helmets was lifted and Miali could finally breath air not filtered by the also chemical-warfare proof helmets. Peace lasts for a century or so.
3979 A.C. Yuva's climate was just going straight off a cliff. However no one expected what happened next, when all of the ocean currents shut down, suddenly plunging Yuva into an ice age. For the first time in billions of years, Yuva had ice caps. Millions had already died from climate-related causes, tsunamis, stronger hurricanes, and otherwise just bad events. However Billions of Mialans were out of food, as a large portion of the fields were now too cold. Nations resorted to the only option, take the remaining land if the other nations refuse to help you, at any cost, and refuse they did. WWIII historically began.
3982 A.C. The U.Y. fields the first Destroyer class ships. While expensive to make, they had one hell of a punch, and a lot of armor. The U.Y. saw Yuva as a dieing world, and immediately began work on the first Colonial class ships, destined to carry their people to a safer world within the Yuvan system.
3989 A.C. The other nations also begin fielding Destroyer class ships, but with a bit of forbidden weaponry, nuclear missiles. The technology to make such things had long since disappeared from the Mailan's knowledge, however they knew how to use them.
4000 A.C. The 4th Millenium was to celebrated with the glorious launch of the U.Y.'s Colonial ships, had the other nations not learned of their location. After trying to get one ship per nation from the U.Y. fleet, and having been refused, C.F. decided to take matters into their own hands. A cloaked squadron of Decimator fighters armed with one nuclear weapon per descended upon the heavily guarded launch site. They flew up into space, and then straight down. Suicidal, but the speed was needed for the weapons to peirce the huge concrete defenses of the underground launch site. The squadron released their bombs, and pulled up hard, barely avoiding a deadly crash landing. Before the U.Y. had any idea what was going on, 5 nuclear weapons peirced the huge defensive layer of the launch site and exploded underground. The resulting shockwave nearly broke a seismometer quite a distance from the explosion site. The huge explosion could easily be seen from space, and looked almost like a volcano going off, only much larger. The Colonial ships were obliterated, along with all information and blueprints on them. Obviously the scientists and engineers who worked on them died too, so the knowledge of how to build the Colonial ships' revolutionary engine system was lost to history. The 4th Millenium sure went off with a boom. This was the last straw for Yuva, and the planet's ecosystem completely crumbled. It was slowly but surely getting colder.
4013 A.C. Present. Yuva is a dead world, all animal life outside the Shields built by U.Y. and given to other nations is dead. If it weren't for Mailan technology, they'd be dead too. The once grand population of 13 Billion Maila has been cut down to a measly 2 Billion. Mailans needed suits just to leave the Shields, but who would want to leave the Shields behind? All that was outside was war and the ruins of a once glorious civilization. A glorious civilization that did not know why it's world had to die. A leading scientist of the obscure Farmer's Alliance had been looking at the Yuvan Sun, and had announced that it was incredibly active. This huge increase in activity was what killed Yuva, and that nothing the Mailan people could save their homeworld, atleast until Yuva repairs itself naturally in a couple centuries. This struck a chord with people, and immediately everyone looked to the worlds beyond Yuva for the first time, hoping for a new life.
4017 A.C. 4017 marked a grand milestone. The Miala had come into contact with their first space-faring race; the Wexxians. The Wexxians basicly saved them, as their star exploded soon as their Exodus from Yuva.
4031 A.C. This year will forever mark the greatest shame that the Miali endured. The insane Uluc Taas had taken control, and just as the great Zula Mec finished him, he activated a device which caused the 4 fusion generators of New Yuva to nova. New Yuva was utterly destroyed, and the only Miali survivors resided on the heavily damaged Imperial class ship, the Valiant.

Thanks, I've spent a couple days working on it. I've also gotten off my lazy butt and used the creature editor to the best of my ability.

I've always thought two genders would be kinda "Eehh." normal, so I just figured out which part of the reproductive systems could be taken out.

Holder:



Quite bloated, not to mention the arms and legs have shrunken. The eyes have enlarged though, so that the holder is more aware of it's surroundings. If they could walk they'd have a bit of a waddle.

Woo. I've completed the Present part of the Miala. That was some over-nighter work... Feedback will be nice to hear, especially on the concept of their history. Woo... *overworked*

Great story man, too bad they only fought themselves instead of fighting other races  :-\

I really like what you got there.
