The organisms nicknamed “Unopus” were discovered in the cold waters of [REDACTED] by local fishermen who caught a specimen by accident.
Unopus are single minded nomadic constructs composed of detritus material gathered from Marine Snow by an anomalous object within the organism. The object is speculated to act as a sort of black box, holding precious information of the unknown and forming vessels from deceased material to travel to it’s receiver. The Unopus has an incredibly complex genetic code, and once decoded, seems to be an “address” of sorts. This has lead to the theory of the Unopus being a sort of “Messenger of the Gods”.
Though objectively focused, it seems the Unopus has some curiosity, observing things that catch it’s attention by forming a single eye on any part of it’s body. This has been especially noticeable during autopsies of the specimen in Site [REDACTED].
If damaged or sensing major obstruction to it’s path, the Unopus will seek deceased material to either regenerate lost tissue, or construct a new Unopus. In some cases during capture, an Unopus will attempt to rub itself all over a organism in order to gather dead skin cells. If encountering a corpse, the Unopus will temporarily fuse with the corpse, engaging in the reconstruction of the body. During this, the cadaver may partially reanimate, causing the body to clumsily attempt movement. Human subjects have been interviewed during this process, describing their experience as a numb, drunk like state. The subject’s mind will slowly flood with the shared information within the Unopus, and if asked may try and translate it, though it often sounds like nonsense or is simply too complicated to be comprehended by a human being.
Hi, I'm a self taught (non-professional) artist. My gallery consist of monsters (mostly original, some fan art) of many sorts, all with a story or concept to join them.
Giant monsters make up much of my work as their one of my favorite concepts, mostly due to a childhood chuck with godzilla flicks.
Spec Evo stuff use to be a major part of my art, but its become less of a focus for me.
Horror is another favorite genre, especially sci fi like the Alien series, filled with unique creatures and ideas that im oh so enamored by.
Fantasy is a genre im in and out of but occasional DND sessions have made me more eager to delve into such material.
