The Llellewyloly of Junidy (Spinward Marches 3202) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a Non-humanoid appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Biology (Physical Sophontology)[edit]

Llellewyloly (pronounced "LEL-uh-wi-Low-lee") have five multi-jointed limbs which function as hands and feet interchangeably. Their main sensory organs are also located on the limbs. The spherical central body is covered with long, coarse hair. Many body features are adaptations to the extreme temperature variations of Junidy’s day. Respiration occurs across the entire spherical body surface and is adapted to Junidy's very thin atmosphere. Consequently, Llellewyloly venture unprotected only into similar very thin atmospheres; in other environments, and even then they require whole-body protective suits. "Dandies" (or "Dandelions") as they are colloquially known, have a great phobia of non-native environments meaning that Dandies stick to low gravity, low pressure environments with similar atmospheres as Junidy.

Evolution & Environment (Epigenetics)[edit]

This species originated on Junidy (world) and developed intelligence.

Sophonce (Evolution)[edit]

This species developed intelligence in response to extreme climatic change and interspecies competition.

Climate & Ecotope (Environment)[edit]

This species holds the following environmental preferences:

  • Terrestrial planet
  • Temperate-cold climate
  • Forest and swamp ecotopes
  • Low gravity
  • Very thin atmosphere

Anatomy & Physiology (Phenotype)[edit]

Sophontologists studying this species have discovered the following data.

Body Plan (Morphology)[edit]


  • Non-humanoid
  • Radial symmetry (r-ial)
  • Pentapod (5-ped)
    • 5 limbs used for dual locomotion-manipulation "arm-legs"
  • Body consists of two segments (modified craniopod)
    • Torso with brain and viscera
    • Abdomen with limbs

Biochemistry (Function)[edit]

This species has a conventional carbon-water based biochemistry.

Respiration (Reaction)[edit]

This species employs a conventional respiration cycle consisting of:

  • Oxygen-nitrogen inhalant
  • Carbon dioxide exhalant

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

Social Organization[edit]

Llellewyloly have a complex society with many dimensions of social precedence; the same individual may be entitled to high status in one situation and low status in another, and to make an error concerning propriety is a serious matter.


This race is primarily located in the following areas:
