Skrillix
Plant—
also known as the Pain Vine. This plant is found only in the heart of
the Rageron jungles called the Deep Blue. The brilliant crimson berries of the
skrillix
are said to cure many
illnesses, including stasis sickness and can also dissolve an improperly placed
or artificial soul bond. The thorns are said to be as poisonous as the berries
are helpful. One prick from a
skrillix
thorn
can give waking nightmares, forcing the victim to relive painful memories. When
minds are linked by the juice of the berries, these visions can be shared with
others who can witness them via a chemically induced neural link.

 

Take-me
—an
animal native to Twin Moons that has been domesticated by the Kindred for
transportation aboard their ship. The Take-me has green fur and two heads, one
on either end. Each head has three purple eyes. The Take-me has the unique
features of being to expand and compress its mass which makes it ideal for storage.
Because they originally lived in caves, most Take-mes stay very contentedly in
small dark areas in the Kindred food prep areas where they live off the scraps
and leavings of their master’s meals. They can eat almost anything except
banana peels which they are allergic to.

 

Tharp—
an
animal that looks very much like a thin fur blanket which can be worn as a
garment.
Tharps
are cultivated on
Tranq Prime and prized for their ability to multiply their host’s body heat and
keep them warm in even the most frigid conditions. A
tharp
can be worn by only one person— as a neophyte or youngster it
imprints upon a host and will slowly starve if parted from them.
Tharps
are intelligent and capable of
limited movement. They live as long as their host and subsist only on body
heat, needing no other form of sustenance to survive.

 

Think-Me
—a
thin silver wire worn around the temples which facilitates mental communication
between people who already have an intimate connection.

 

Touch-U
—a
flat black mat-like animal native to Tranq Prime which the Kindred have adapted
to be a home health appliance. The Touch-U is capable of giving a gentle
massage or an all-out erotic experience depending on which button is pushed.

 

Twin
Kindred
—come from Twin Moons—a world of vast, stormy oceans dotted with
craggy but beautiful islands. True to their namesake, Twin Kindred always come
in pairs. The brothers are not identical, however. There is always a light twin
and a dark twin. These labels refer not just to skin, hair, and eye coloring but
to the twin’s moods and perceptions of the world. The dark twin in the pair is
usually more moody and withdrawn while the light twin takes a substantially
brighter view of life. The twins are closely linked and able to sense each
other’s emotions. They cannot be separated by long distances or for long
periods of time without severe pain. They must also share a woman, linking her
into their mental and emotional exchange for very intense ménage sex.

 

Urlich—
a
type of dog bred by the Scourge. At maturity they are modified with machinery
to heighten their sense of smell and intelligence which results in a
cyborg-type animal. Once in pursuit of whatever scent has been programmed into
their brains, the
urlich
are utterly
single minded and incapable of stopping until their prey has been cornered and
captured.

 

Wave
—a
Kindred cooking appliance which emits thousands of finely collimated beams of
heat to cook food in under a minute.

 

Zichther
—an
animal native to the jungles of Rageron, the zichther resembles a small bright
blue teddy bear in appearance until it opens its mouth and reveals three rows
of incredibly sharp, shark-like teeth.

 
 

About the
Author

Evangeline Anderson is a registered
MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a
bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is
thirty-something and lives in Florida
with a husband, a son, and one elderly, puking cat. She had been writing erotic
fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to
her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually
possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing
paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.
