The Muskies are from the Planet Pirate series. They were hunted and eaten by the Heavyworlders. This was a bad thing because the so called "civilised world" had all converted to vegetarianism.

I think I rather like being a Darbul. They are cute. Shazza is cute. Yup. Like that.

That would be a dementor, Ryuu.

Soul-eaters are from the Talent books, but they exist only in Larak and Damia's imagination.

Soul-hunters are certainly from B5, but these here are soul-eaters.



SPOILERS BELOW!







Damia was injured as a child when a schoolmate of hers threw a rock at her head and knocked her unconscious, and while she was out she dreamed of soul-eaters. Later she scared her brother Larak into starting a forest fire with the tale. When she met Sodan zooming on her from space, she said being in contact with him reminded her of the soul-eaters that scared her as a kid.

I'll be happy to become a Loo cow, but since I hardly ever contribute--outside of the gameroom, that is--it'll probably be awhile!

Hey know this is OT but could the noc on the head have allowed her to reach albeit briefly and fuzzily with Sodan's race? but without Sodans appealing words she could see the danger?

No idea... Although it does seem a bit of a coincidence that in Damia's short lifetime two alien races would approach the Nine Star League where none had before. Sodan must have been on his way towards the milky way galaxy (he was on an intergalactic, not just interstellar mission) when it happened, though. So who knows?
