Entirety Extinct Species: The Magu by Goatlactic Entirety Extinct Species: The Magu by Goatlactic
I had the sudden urge before moving on to other art to actually design the Magu mentioned in the backstory of the Saitek.

*dyerok Only provided me with the name and the suggestion to have them have multiple limbs with opposable digits... so basically free reign. Thing is I did get a cue from the collective conscious of my followers considering half of the entries of the contest and did make the species a single eyed one. Makes sense too considering Saitek only have a single eye thing on their capsule that their creators would also be a cyclops. Also much of its body shape is based on some unused ideas I had for races I never got to use because I had limited the number to so few.

Anyway Magu don't really get a sheet because basically shit all is know about them culturally, growth wise or variant wise. Also it would probably confuse people to number of races appearing in the story if these guy used the same sheet as all the other races.

What is known based on what the Saitek colonists survived told them + what they dug up on that unnamed planet centuries after the mass extinction is they were a species around the same technological level as the Ginaga (so very advanced) but were much shittier at actually conserving resources similar to another species we all know :B this led to the whole needing Saitek in the first place. Its also known they had sexual binary but likely had a very minor sexual dimophism, were not part of any class found on any other planet (so they weren't mammals or fish or anything like that), had one giant eye with 3 pupils and probably lived 110 to 140 earth years on average.

So enjoy :U

Ooh, nice design on these too.  I especially like the big feet and hands - the way you drew the toes and fingers is so cool. =) Too bad they're now extinct, maybe a couple of them managed to survive somewhere out there in the vastness of space?

:D glad you like their feet/hands. Also its a possibility :o they were incredibly advanced technologically wise so there's a chance a few fled and were picked up elsewhere (as they would have ran out of food eventually).

Indeed, even if you don't have any Magu survivors in the official story, I'm sure that would be a fun topic for people to explore in Entirety fanfiction!

Indeed. I do hope to have what I like to call in story mythology. Basically instead of telling the people the answer in the story something is brought up by someone but not really given a yes or no or how it happened if it did and people can kinda fill in the blanks. I know that drives some really obsessive fans crazy because they want to know all the answers but this is better for fueling discussion, fanfiction, fanart, fan characters and so on. That's why I mention at tumblr quite a few events that happened before the story starts on different planets, most aren't going to get a massive amount of elaboration so people can kinda play the stories out in fanwork with their own characters.

Ahh that sounds good to me!  I actually kind of like it when there's a bit of mystery left in a story.  I mean it can be annoying when there are things that are constantly teased in front of your face throughout the story and then never get resolved . . . *shakes fist at Lemony Snicket*  But I do like it when there are some things that aren't fully explained, it keeps you thinking about it and can be fun to discuss with people and stuff.  I do things like that in my stories too - there are some things that I kind of hint at so that if you go back and put it all together you can figure it out, but then there are also things that even I don't know the answer too because there are some situations where I think it's easier to write if I'm just as clueless as the characters are. O_o

:B maybe, its not always easy to tell by appearance. Some species overall behavior is kinda reflected in how they look to humans (Tenaliam for example look as irritated as they usually are which is a lot) but others like Moln and Ferron look a lot scarier than they actually act. In contrast surprisingly Chi'Tsao (the little moth aliens) are some of biggest douchecanoes of all the species, because they have a strong venomous bite they're surprisingly sassy and fearless despite being considerably smaller than even the second smallest race :U
