History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Conventional life is valuable to other kinds of conventional life. They can serve in many roles to each other: as companions ("pets"), as allies or enemies (other sophont species), sources of medicine, sources of genetic ingenuity, or even as foodstuffs.

Animals & Plants[edit]

Two of the best-known lifeform types, commonly encountered on the terrestrial worlds ammenable to Humaniti and most oxygen-breathing sophonts, are:

  • Animals
  • Plants

Other Types of Common Life[edit]

While many of the more familiar and mundane (...but not always well understood) lifeform types include:

  • Algae
  • Archaea
  • Bacteria
  • Eukaryotes
  • Fungi
  • Monists
  • Plantimals
  • Prokaryotes
  • Protists
  • Viruses

Please note that many of the above categories overlap or exist as ancient theories of life. They are included for the sake of comrpehensiveness since different parts of the scientific community argue as to which taxonomic and systematic schemes of lifeform organization should prevail.
