Who is the Enemy?

Humanity’s first significant encounter with a formidable adversary occurred in the mid-24th century through a vision experienced by Jen Kuchner, a contract linguist stationed at Iverson Deep Space Transit Station. Before this event, humans had conducted a protracted conflict against a species known as “The Tronate,” particularly on extraterrestrial colonies. In deep space these beings occasionally attacked ships for supplies and consumed their crews. Described as hominid trolls, the Tronate, later referred to as HuTron, stood about 2.4 meters tall and exhibited bioluminescent skin alongside limited intelligence, with IQs ranging between 30 and 65. They communicated using simplified, constructed variants of the ancient proto-Olmec language.

The HuTron’s basic nature and limited intellectual capacity led humans to suspect they were merely pawns, controlled by a more elusive and intelligent entity. The “Jen Kuchner Incident,” confirmed this suspicion, revealing the existence of the MeTron, beings from an alternate dimension now known as Odunie or “The Other World.” For full account of this incident see the story Real Time . The MeTron, capable of assuming any form in Odunie, manipulate events in our world through “anchors” or “hooks” linked to specific species with distinct physical traits, such as bilateral symmetry, six limbs, and multiple eyes. As a group they are called “Dark World Creatures,” since their planet of origin has not yet been discovered.

Among these preferred hosts, the MeTron have a particular affinity for a creature termed the Bufo Gigans Aliena, colloquially known as “Toads.” You can find a sketch of the Toads above this article. Simple sketches of the other two Dark World species follow. This early revelation underscored the complexity of the threat faced by humanity, indicating that the HuTron were merely one tool of a far more sophisticated and interdimensional adversary, which operates beyond our conventional understanding of reality.

And the Alatum Volucres Aliena (“Feathers”). Note that on the “feathers” the lower set of arms is rudimentary and usually hidden by their feather-like covering.
