Chronicles From a Distant Planet...

Do any of you guys remember Darwinum?

'Cause I'm restarting it! ;D Sorry for my absence of updates and all that, but I'm back! *ahem*

Chronicles From a Distant Planet

Remember, this is such a poll-game, but a spore based one, so you'll guide the creature through all evolutionary stages with your votes.
We already know Darwinum pretty well in this forum, so let's start from where we left off.

Generation 1: A Violent Birth



Our previous creature was doing very well, at the height of the food chain, but was suddenly wiped out along with all the other life forms (including black flora) on the Ocean surface by a Gigantic Hypercane that covered the globe. Only the microbes from the twilight zone and under survived, and Migrated to the surface, filling the empty niche. They are: Our Protagonist, Leomitosas, Yellow plant cells, and Orange cells.

Yellow Cell:
   A descendent of Yellow Darwinum, this B-2 shaped Diatom photosynthesizes with yellow chlorophyll, and moves with a single flagella, instead of drifting with the current.

Orange Cell:
   A descendant of Orange Darwinum, this disk-shaped microbe is ten times smaller than Leomitosas (about a 100 nanometers), hunts in small groups in pursuit of Yellow Cells. It moves with cillia that covers the outer cell membrane.

Leomitosas:
   An unseen split-off of Darwinum from the Third Generation, our new protagonist is 1 um (micrometer) in size. It moves with it's flexible cytoskeleton, and devours whatever it bumps into.

Stats for Leomitosas:
Population: 1/10
Diet: Yellow Cell, Orange Cell
Reproduction: Mitosis
Speed: medium
Habitat: Maine Ocean (Sunlight Zone)
Size: 1 um
__________________________________________________________________________________________
Poll: Asteriskes next to options mean, that if this option is going to win, there must be stated somewhere in the thread what the new evolution should be. If it ain't stated, the second winner is taken.

That you have to explain what EXACTLY should we improve in the option (that has an asterisk) that you voted for.

Five way tie! Nobody vote so we can get them all.
No, get a label gun and shoot them with labels like "Bad guy #1" "Bad guy #2" Slightly badder guy" "Guy that thinks he is bad but is really good and just confused"

Hopefully a joke.

Improve hunting/feeding by growing organs that produce nerve toxins in the form of a goo. Or just evolve to be able to spit nerve toxins.

Couldn't you just update with them all?

By like one vote. And you do realize had you used all of your three votes you could have forced a three way tie?
