The Gondia stage 1 Tags hiveminded human/plant composite organisms that reproduce through Parthenogenesis Appearance human in appearance with green hair skin as white as paper and vines growing under the skin also some have flowers growing in their hair and some do not Culture they do not have a culture in the conventional sense they are darwinistically motivated to spread and they will do anything to achieve that goal. But they are a hive mind controlled by collective democracy, although they do have some individual personality it often takes a back seat to the collective goals, but their reason for being is to serve the purpose of the plant inside their bodies and that purpose is propagation of the species through assimilation of other humans (and whatever other species they find are compatible) and spreading their influence. History They originated on a human colony on the outer rim of the galaxy when the colonists arrived they discovered that all animals were infected with this symbiotic alien plant it was a similar relationship to lichens on earth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichen) but instead of it being algue and fungus it was plant an animal. The humans figured out this plant could be used to generate electricity because it naturally does it as a defence mechanism. So they found an completely green source of power but eventually it adapted to the human body and infected humans now these creatures called Gondia seek to add all other humans in existance to their number. (all gondia are female and reproduce through parthenogenesis) Intentions for Story & Setting Interactions they will be played in a completely unique way people playing this species will join a custom discord server that will serve as the hive mind. In this discord server the players will be able to talk to each other and share information (IC) and it will simulate a hive mind to anyone else watching from the outside, this will allow players to coordinate their actions and appear like a true collective. The intentions for the story are for the Gondia to be a kind of antagonist to humanity, but it is also an experiment to see if we can successfully role-play a hive mind, we will build a civilization where everyone is equal and we will attempt to convert human characters to our number.
