The Jaylay-yay are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Jaylay-yay are an amphibian race native to Inghinfudzolorz (Gvurrdon 1037).

Physiology & Environment[edit]

This race has one rare ability that has not been observed in such an advanced race, and that is the ability to give electric shocks. But this does not mean that the Jaylay-yay are immune to electric shocks themselves. If the target is insulated, it will backfire. In water the target just has to be close to the Jaylay-yay to work. However, the effect covers a 360 degree arc on every axis out from the Jaylay-yay, forming a globe of electricity. The Jaylay-yay are omnivorous. They are lightly built, massing an average of 75kg. They have 4 fingers on each of their two hands. The hands are webbed, though not to the ends of their fingers, but the toes have no webbing at all. The Jaylay-yay head holds four eyes configuration such that the upper pair is the only part that is above the surface of the water as they swim. Though, according to studies on their anatomy, the upper pair of eyes have been weakening over the generations due to disuse. Their skin is scaled as a fish, but near the joints it goes over to a more leathery substance. The Jaylay-yay's skin color varies from all the colors in the rainbow, being different from individual to individual, something that makes it easy to tell them apart.
