The Lore

For Holl’a to reproduce, there has to be 3 Holl’a that all are attracted to each other. After this happens, They all wrap their tentacles together and sync their psychic energy. The environment has to be in deep ocean water(at least 600-700 meters deep, preferably 800 meters). This process of syncing their psychic energy takes 5 to 8 years. Once they are in sync, they will form a fertilized egg that takes 3 years to be fully constructed. After the egg is constructed, the Holl’a can unwrap their tentacles and leave the egg to grow on it’s own.

The eggs are often placed in caves to sit for 30-50 years to hatch.  The longer it takes, the more intelligent the Holl’a is. The Holl’a eggs have evolved to become very resistant to cave collisions usually caused by the planet’s core shifting every 6-13 years. The eggs can resist up to…

For Holl’a to reproduce, there has to be 3 Holl’a that all are attracted to each other. After this happens, They all wrap their tentacles together and sync their psychic energy.

Once they are in sync, they will form a fertilized egg that takes 3 years to be fully constructed. After the egg is constructed, the Holl’a can unwrap their tentacles and leave the egg to grow on it’s own.

The eggs are often placed in caves to sit for 30-50 years to hatch.  The longer it takes, the more intelligent the Holl’a is. The Holl’a eggs have evolved to become very resistant to cave collisions usually caused by the planet’s core shifting every 6-13 years. The eggs can resist up to three tons of pressure.The average height of a Holl’a egg is 3 meters in height and 2.5 meters in width. If the egg is placed in a cave, it will have an easier time harvesting the cave wall moss for their food.  

Right after hatching the Holl’a are three inches tall and about one inch wide.

Almost all of its height is due to its tentacles. It’s early childhood consists of swimming around observing its surroundings, this continues for 10-12 years. At this time the Holl’a will be 8 inches in height and 2 inches in width. It is also at this time when the Holl’a will begin to leave its cave and explore the world of Noctrin’a. After about 30-36 years of exploring, they will allowed to enter the cities. At this time the Holl’a are 3 meters in height and 2 feet in width.

The Holl’a will spend 85-102 years growing to its maximum physicality. The Holl’a will have to wait 700-719 years before it will be allowed to travel space. It can take up to 280,000 years for a Holl’a to grow to its full potential mentally. The Holl’a’s lifespan before they discovered advanced genetics one was 300,000-320,000 years. In the time of the great war they could live up to 46 million years. An adult size Holl’a is 10 meters in length, 9 of the 10 meters consists of its tentacles.

The head is just under 1 meter in length and the Holl’a has 12 tentacles. When a Holl’a becomes an adult it is standard for them to get a mechanical shell to protect themselves from the dangers of space and even their own cities. A common hobby Holl’as like to do in the years 256 AIL to 2,800,500,450 AIL is observing and documenting other species of different worlds. Because of this influx of information, they founded the great archive on Noctrin’a’s moon “Okjoon” in the year 632 AIL.

The Holl’a would use lasers that would burn into hollo trays that they would store in “tray holders” or “Haje’s”. They would then go to The Great Archive to get their information revised and then stored. Over time The Great Archive became the best, most famous and biggest data storage in the universe.

BIL=before intelligent life AIL=after intelligent life

The beginning of this universe started roughly 11 billion BIL(according to the Holl’a archive)  years ago. The first few billion years consisted of basic life and tribal groups. The universe was still quite small and only a couple hundred planets had life. One of the planets called “Noctrin’a” hosted life that would eventually evolve into the Holl’a.

Many of the tribal groups were eventually wiped out due to wars and natural cause like suns forming into super giants, quasars etc. But there was a species called the Holl that were ancient ancestors of the Holl’a. There isn’t much documentation on the tribes and the species of the other planets that had life and have been forgotten in time like many things.

The Holl’s planet Noctrin’a is a cloudy water like planet. The inner core of the planet was embedded with helium and would leak out which would rise to surface and added to the rest that was in the air, which consisted of 65% helium, 20% hydrogen, 12% Oxygen and 3% other gasses.  The oceans were also very bubbly in result of the helium rising to the surface. The Holl thrived off hydrogen, and they obtained this by evolving to obtain it through water. The Planet was sparsely populated with different species, mainly consisting of small worm like creatures that were the Holl’s common ancestor.

The other species was mainly bacteria type of life and small creatures that lives in water caves etc. Because there was little to no competition to survive, the Holl began to value intelligence over strength. The Holl did not have any gender and so they could be attracted to any one of their kind. The more intelligent a Holl was, the more attractive it was to another Holl. Through this process, the species formed small tribes and small cities throughout Noctrin’a.

By this time they have already discovered electricity which they generated through the helium bubbles that would try to rise to the surface. As they became more advanced, the small tribes would annex each other peacefully. They could do this because all of the Holl were not very different from each other and could communicate through psychic energy which is very effective in understanding each other. By the year 1,671 BIL, the Holl unified themselves and all started calling themselves “The Holl’a”. Before this each tribe/faction had their own names and culture but now they were unified as one species.

In the year 133 BIL the Holl’a invented spacecraft that could reach other planets.The Holl’a at this time were tentacle-like creatures, and they were still very weak so they invented robotical/mechanical shells so they could travel to other planets safely. When this technology was widespread, and the Holl’a started exploring, a new age dawned and all the years after this would be “AIL.” Also at this time all the other species were too busy fighting on their home worlds to develop space tech.
