The Accretion Gospel
- Native Planet: Votum II
- Creature Type: Elemental
- Information: A large, amorphous creature composed of gas filled bladders and osmotic membranes, it once resided in the upper atmosphere of the second planet of the Votum system. However, since the transmigration, it has been forced to dive down to the surface in search of prey. Resembling a large sea medusa, it catches the light as it drifts through the air with it’s helium filled saccules, glittering like a gem as the sun’s rays pass through it’s transparent body. Before the transmigration, its diet was composed primarily of airborne creatures and minerals extracted from clouds of hot gas expelled by volcanic rifts. Now, due to the destruction of Votum’s environment, it drifts along the ground, absorbing anything that should happen to cross its path.
It’s membranes absorb carbon dioxide and convert it into an acidic excretion, which is then applied through contact in order to digest it’s prey. The acetonemone lacks a proper digestive tract, so it must break down its prey as much as possible before extracting the nutrients from it through its large pseudopods.
While exploring the ruins of the Central Bay in the city of Marras on Votum II, Janet, Tesla, and Tuona were ambushed by an acetonemone, which had broken into the center through a damaged hull in the aerial gardens. Hungry and drawn to the women by their movements, it proved to be a troublesome menace for those who were without a means to defend against it’s acidic touch.
