Match 31 – syris vs Sammy
Syris and I took an alternate approach, based on the novel “DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS” published in 1951 by John Wyndham.
In the story, the entire human populous is rendered blind by a dazzling week-long display of strange meteorites in the sky. Soon after strange “Triffid” plants start appearing to harvest/bleed the humans ----- They are capable of uprooting themselves, and though rather slow, are very formidable predators against a newly blind human population. (and they stand as a prediction of biological future warfare – as Wyndham describes later in his book)
To the blinded people of earth, the unidentified Triffids are very much demons.
Syrus and I approached the concept of the Triffid race as if they were a hive mentality in preparation for courtship ----
- Syrus designing the “Drone Triffid” (Prince)
- And Sammy designing the “Pre-Mated Queen Triffid” (Princess)
“Pre-Mated Queen Triffid” (Princess)
The Princess is the largest form or Triffid ---- several times larger than any normal worker Triffid ( 7 feet tall ) ---- for a very specific reason: After courtship she will fold over, root herself, and transform into a biological hive to sprout thousands upon thousands of Triffid workers for her new colony.
In her current ‘Princess’ state she wonders the countryside uprooted, apathetic towards any organism that happens to wonder into her feeders. She is in bloom, and pheromones form a thick blanked across the horizon to attract any ‘Prince’ in the territory.
