Conductoids are a species from the Teslavorr Nebula

Appearance

Conductoids have black bodies with one eye in the middle of their head. They have two antennae and a tail that looks like plugs on the end, which allows them to draw energy to themselves, like how a plug plugs in electricity through the tips. They have four fingers on each hand, with similar plugs on the tip of each finger that help them absorb energy.

Conductoids gain bolts on their wrists, hips, and shoulders as they age.

Conductoids can have different hair styles using their antennae.[DJW 1]

Behavior

Conductoids are not social beings. Males of the species are negatively charged, while females are positively charged. If too many male occupy the same area for an extended period of time, the resulting arc could destroy them all. The same holds true for females. Because the consequences of social groups are so potentially devastating, Conductoids tend to be solitary creatures.[1]

Diet

Conductoids feed on eddies and currents of higher-energy particles near protostars.[1]

Powers and Abilities

Conductoids can absorb and redirect energy using the plugs on their antennae, tail, and fingers. They most commonly fire electrical energy that is powerful enough to harm Methanosians,[2] Galvanic Mechamorphs,[3] tangible Ectonurites,[4] and Evolved Vaxasaurians.[5]

Besides electricity, Conductoids can use their powers on other types of energy including a Terroranchula's webbing and missiles generated by an Evolved Vaxasaurian.

Conductoids can fly by aiming their hands toward the ground, firing streams of electricity in the process.

Conductoids possess enhanced strength, agility, and jumping skills.

Conductoids can temporarily gain enhanced speed while running on electrical power lines.

Conductoids can stretch the plugs on their head, hips, and hands for more range, they can also "smell" radio signals using their antennae.

It is implied that Conductoids can survive in the vacuum of space due to being born in a nebula.

Weaknesses

Conductoids need to absorb energy occasionally because the energy they contain will deplete with each use.

A Conductoid's antennae can be easily pulled on, which can both irritate them and leave them stuck in place.

Conductoids cannot stop themselves from shooting their electric energy blasts. Therefore, they will have to resort to shooting it all up in the air to avoid collateral damage if they fail to catch a target.

Etymology

The name "Conductoid" comes from the Latin word "conduct", which means "to serve as a channel or medium for (heat, electricity, sound, etc.)". This references their energy absorption and redirecting abilities.

Trivia

  • Conductoids easily travel through Teslavorr, using minute voltage differences between to propel themselves.[1]
  • It is believed that Conductoids may be crucial to stellar formation, although that theory has yet to be proven.[1]
  • Derrick J. Wyatt once claimed that a Conductoid's appearance is actually a containment suit.[DJW 2] However, he eventually refuted the statement, admitting that he was wrong.[DJW 3]
