Orishans are a red mollusk-like species. They have two large eyes in Ultimate Alien and four slitted and rectangular eyes in Omniverse. They have small grey spikes and black spots on the back of their legs and shoulders. Their mouth is similar to that of a crab's.
Orishans have portholes on their four-clawed hands.
Orishans have hoods over their heads, with a retractable visor. Their hood is also retractable.
Powers and Abilities
Orishan can launch pressurized blasts of water through the portholes in their hands. These blasts normally consist of hot water, though they can change the temperature of their water powers from hot to cold. Using these same portholes, they can absorb moisture, including from the air.
Orishan are extremely durable, being able to withstand crashing into a wall seemingly painless. They have armored exoskeletons that protect their body from damage, including physical attacks, thereby making them completely invulnerable.
Orishan can produce sharp streams of water and use them as whips.
Orishan can jump exceptionally high.
Although an Orishan's armored exoskeleton allows them to feel little to no physical pain, there seems to be a limit to the exoskeleton's durability, as Water Hazard felt pain from hitting his head against a pipe.
Orishan glass is known to be the best to adapt multiple atmospheres.
Notable Orishan Hybrids
Orisha is a synonym for crustacean or shellfish, similar to the species itself.
- Because the Orishan are from the Andromeda Galaxy, Orishan DNA wasn't in the Codon Stream until the Ultimatrix scanned Bivalvan in Fame.
- Duncan Rouleau confirmed that Orishans are genetically related to, but considered a separate species from, the Cascan species in the reboot, likening the difference to panthers and jaguars.[DR 1]
