The Shadow
« on: May 29, 2009, 08:56:39 pm »
The Shadow are the species that I mentioned in the idea for the Flash Cartoon. That's the only reason I am giving them a proper profile.They are Amorphous blobs that are pure evil. They seek to destroy all life, and have unbelievable technology behind them. The reason why is that they were trapped in an alternate dimention for countless aons,being one of the first creatures in the galaxy. This is evident in how physically undeveloped they are. They are called "the Shadow" because they are pich black.One ability they developed is to take complete control of another creature. Due to this, they also developed advanced hypnosis and mind-control technologies. Their form of combat, due to their lack of numbers, is to infiltrate the government of the attacked species, "posessing" or mind controlling high government officials, and weakening the species from the inside. Then, their small number of ultra-powerful ships can annhilate the species. As I stated, they cannot reproduce quickly, and their whole armada consists of only 346 ships. But each ship is very powerful, capible of holding it's own against multiple enemy ships.

Phew! :-\

If they have the natural ability to take complete control of another being, why would they develop hypnosis and mind control tech? How is their underdeveloped form a supporting argument for their being the oldest species in the galaxy? What's a "dimention"?
I think fish drown when they are knocked unconscious or pierced through the lung.

Hypnosis and Mind control so that a Shadow doesn't have to be controlling the persons body at all times. And the fact that they are one of the first would be that there wouldn't have been time for hyper-advanced creatures to form. Alot of their advancements came in the other dimention. And a dimention is like, a "alternate universe", I really don't know how to explain it.

The ViS are one of the Great Three Ancients and they gained a somewhat amorphous form due to a relatively long time of oversimplification.

Are you sure you dont mean dimension?

And they would need to do a lot of research before controlling anyone, imagine changing how a computer reads bytes, replace a few 1s with 0s and try to hook it up with another computer. Except with brains there are 2s, 3s and 4s too.

I imagine they would also first abduct specimens like Darth Grievi's H'qur, yes, GG? Or at least have a machine dedicated solely to translating the mental code of foreign species?

Blobs of pure evil? Evil is a moral creation, not a substance. It should be eons not aons. Dimension not dimention. Capable not capible.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

But you wrote it in such a way that it says that the shadow are blobs of nothing. Also, define evil. To Hitler the Jews were evil but to the Jews Hitler was evil. So what kind of evil are we talking about?

And what our species considers evil is not necessarily evil to another. See my Hitler : Jews explanation of evil.

Conquering the universe would only be considered not evil by the ones doing.

I am pretty certain that its universal.
