An Echinodermoid is the typoid classification of creatures exhibiting characteristics similar to Terran aquatic lifeforms like starfish, sea urchins, or sea cucumbers.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

An echinodermoid is distinguished by a number of characteristics:

  • Echinodermoids are commonly known for having radial symmetry and non-humanoid body plans.
  • While they can be found in a wide variety of environments, they are strongly associated with aquatic environments.
  • They typically possess a large number of limbs, typically dual purpose tentacles capable of manipulation or locomotion.
  • Many examples of these creatures possess the Automy ability and can regenerate limbs and extremities.
