Descriptions-Unique parts of a Pre-Comet Genvor
 A Genvor lives on the planet Jople. Jople is a dry, desert-like world devoid of almost all water. Genvors live solely to tear, break, and rip through anything and everything to get to the flesh of its prey. The large fin on its back is an incredible thing, so far unreplicated in the galaxy. Genvors do not breath like a human does, instead the carbon dioxide from it travels out the fin, and its blood pumps through the fin... this process also helps keep the Genvor warm and alive. A special moss which appears in few to no other places grows on this fin, using the carbon dioxide, and abundant sunlight from Jople's two suns, the moss lives and gives off oxygen. This oxygen is immediately sucked into the fin, where the Genvor's blood transports it throughout the body. In a world with little oxygen, this relationship between plant and animal is needed for the Genvor to survive. The stubs on its body are underdeveloped arms and hands. It has a powerful jaw for tearing. It can use its muscled legs to run faster than almost any animal on Jople. The claws on its feet can seriously maim any poor animal. The tail is also to be feared, as the hooked claw on the tip can slice through rock, if given enough force to do so.

Description-Unique Parts of a Pre-Tribal Genvor
The large fin doubled in size, the brain and head also doubled in size. The Genvor lost its tail and gained arms and hands, plus more claws. It Also gained a strong sense of smell using its nose and mouth to also breath in oxygen to help supply its growing brain. It was a mere matter of time until the Genvor became a Sentient Genvor.

Lifespan: Oldest: 251 Human Years, and 125.5 Genvor Years...
Height: Roughly 7 feet if you include their fins, and 4 feet if you don't.
Color: Deep-red to just below Shiny Red
Genders: 3- Guardians guard their eggs and never perform sexual activity, Females lay the eggs, Males give the Females the male's genes.
Government: A strange form of government in which everything is everyone's. Can be related to the Native American's thought of land being everyone's.
Social Structure: Most are Commoners- Workers in a a sense- and a few are Politicians and Generals.
How they war: They prefer not to war. Very Diplomatic, but when war does happen, they use massive droid armies to fight in Jople's Urban-Style Warfare. They do not indorce collateral damage, seeing all those that do not have a weapon as non-kill and those that do as KOS. Masses of Droid Infantry and Genvor-manned vehicles such as tanks and airplanes are few. 90% Droid Infantry, 7% Genvor-Manned Tanks, 2% Air-Related Warfare, 1% Space-Born Assault Ships. The Tanks, Planes, and Ships of the Genvor are rare but extremely powerful and deadly. Which seems strange to most as Genvor are paficists with an extreme military usually including anyone that can hold a weapon if needed. The Genvor have long since been in space using it as a research area, but never much caring to look beyond their own solar system area.
Solar System: They have incidently filled their solar system with city-planets full of population, often planets are split apart in different factions seeking their own gain, which can lead to serious problems. Because of this, even though they're pacifistic they know their problems often boil down into all-out warfare which they have characterized as being a trademark of being Sentient.

 For about 100 years they pumped out radio waves, however they quickly switched to an instanteous form of communication, seemingly related to psychic telepathy in all Genvors due to their large brains. It is as of yet unknown if their psychic waves can be picked up by other animals, however it seems with enough thought they can make animals seem to react correctly to what they tell it to do. Also this has been done across the system with the same amount of thought so it appears that any animal that focuses in on the waves can easily listen if the waves are directed in all directions. Which many Genvors that believe life does exist, are sending out a form of "Hello" almost constantly. Most other Genvors consider them stupid, as there has been no other life found, only created by Genvor intervention. This Genetic Engineering and Life-Making field of their science is rapidly expanding, as the Genvors constantly are attempting to create a sentient organism, which they believe is the holy grail of genetics.

Description-Unique Parts of a Tribal-Space Age Genvor
The Fin mostly expanded and forced the Genvor to walk semi-upright. They regrew their tail in order to help defend as their large fins were easy targets. Due to the low amount of animals on Jople, they turned herbivore and began eating the masses of the cactus-like plant on Jople. The Genvor became sentient with a brain mass nearly double the size of a humans. Their skin turned a deeper red for some random reason.

The History
 At first for a long while, the Genvor was an oppressed animal, a simple scurrying lizard in a world which was to powerful for it. For millions of years other species thrived while the Genvor waited and waited for its day. Unfortunately for most, the main sun, Jodu, was ( and still is ) an unstable sun. Jodu grew and grew, getting very red and casting a blood-look upon the lands of the system's 7 planets and 10 moons. Jodu grew and consumed 2 of the 7 planets, eventually the large creatures died off, for they could not adapt and evolve to this new climate. Jople grew more and more dry, its oceans boiling off and setting into the atmosphere, increasing the rate of its global warming. Jople itself seemed to die as it became a harsh desert world in which little life could exist. Those creatures, including the Genvor, who were once oppressed had grown and evolved into the new rulers of this world turned upside down.

 At first the Genvor and all life faced many perils, however life showed once again how diverse and creative it could be. Life evolved, and life began to thrive in the desert. Eventually with the Genvor at 2nd place for another few million years yet another catastrophy happened... An Ice comet slammed into Jople. For a few years the comet's water stayed until it too, was boiled and rose into the atmosphere. This addage of water vapor kick started an extreme heat-up of Jople once again. Most species quickly died off from the heat, some more died off from the Super-Intense hurricanes in which a shallow burrow was a death hole. From the moment Jople used to be a paradise to the death caused by this comet... Jople's population of life was 1/1000th of what it was long ago. About 4 species of animals and 2 species of plant still lived on.

Eventually Jodu reverted down to a small White Dwarf, greatly lessening the amount o heat on Jople and allowing masses of rain and plants to grow.
however, Jople was never the same, it remained an arid world covered in desert unless the Genvor would become sentient enough to terraform Jople back to its former greatness. The Genvor developed and developed, eventually becoming Tribal creatures. They lost their aggressiveness in favor of pacifism since they turned herbivore, and there were no predators for the Genvor left to kill. The Genvor flourished, eventually building massive cities across the land, turning Jople into one large huge city of sky-ward buildings and peaceful animals that cultured their cactus-food in great farms on the land. The Genvor's development continued at an expanding rate. For the billions of years the Genvor had existed, they had become a great race spread across the planet in only 500 years. Their massive brains were probably the main push for their constantly accelerating growth, construction, and research of technology. They achieved what took humans millions of years, in such a short span of time, they it seems as if they were savages only 3 Genvor Generations ago.

The Planet
Jople has many rare minerals, which are plentiful. Having been a jungle world once, it has many fossil fuels and the like as well. Underneath the surface of Jople many riches and minerals are to be found, including plentiful Uranium, Nickel, Gold, Silver, Iron, Oil, and almost all substances known to modern man. Jople's weather is not powered by the seas, as they have long since boiled away, instead it is powered by various changing hotspots of heat from its 2 suns , Jodu and Jenu. This creates incredibly dangerous storms, of which is an almost constant sandstorm that rages all over the planet ever since Jople turned dry and devoid of water. Jople itself would resemble Venus in a way, but without an abundance of methane gas and other poisons in the atmosphere. Jople is appromizately 2 1/2 size of the Earth. Any rain that forms dries up the moment it condenses, forcing all remnants of Joples oceans and lakes to stay in the atmosphere, keeping Jople in a consant state of desertation. Massive hurricanes travel across its surface, turning any medium to small rocks into deadly projectiles, most likely killing any creature hit by one of these projectiles. In fact, if a normal human were exposed to these winds, his skin would begin to peel off his own body from all the impacts from the sand constantly slamming into him. In times of these hurricanes, all life takes shelter in burrows. These burrows are diggable by all species on Jople, as it is a necessity to take shelter or die when a Joplian Hurricane comes.

You may have noticed I might write a tad to much  :P  ;D

I can't. Says a .psd image is invalid on basicly all of those servers... so is there a convertor for it?

How did you make the image?

Try taking a screenshot (print screen) and pasting it in Paint. Unless it's bigger than the screen.

If you find it, make sure you save it as a .png image.

I love walls of text!  :)
Great start, lets see how they get to sentience! (If they do that is.)

What will you do?

when you save your images, you can select as what type of file you would like to save it as, just like paint.

Government: A strange form of government in which everything is everyone's.

it's called communism
