As I’ve mentioned before, the Order of Wallfixers of is a group of alien wizards who patrol the multiverse writing wrongs, especially when those wrongs damage the physical structure of reality. I covered a bunch of them during the Supernatural Sunday year, so now I’ll do a handful more during these Alien Sundays.
The Xemulo Wallfixer named Hurnhaw is one of the older generation of Wallfixers and prefers to keep things simple. Hurnhaw focuses entirely on the actual fixing of damage in the walls of reality, simply wandering from dimensional tear to dimensional tear and patching them up. Hurnhaw doesn’t make introductions to the natives of dimensions, and doesn’t make explanations to anyone, just goes about the repairs, then wanders to the next place in need.
Coiditlah is from an aquatic species native to the galaxy known as “The Circle”. Like most of the life in that galaxy, the idea of alien life came as no surprise, but Coiditlah was still surprised to develop magical powers and be propelled into the multiverse. Few things can make one feel smaller than awareness of the infinite, so Coiditlah’s reaction to the powers was actually one of fear and depression. Only when discovered by Hurnhaw and trained did Coiditlah learn to mellow out and accept the vastness of it all. Still serving as an assistant to Hurnhaw, Coiditlah returns home often to stay grounded.
The Wallfixer known as Whitsenberg is a stretchy little alien who can climb walls and spit acid. Trained by Nyrveek, Whitsenberg was dutifully researching an ancient library when captured by the Efmon family. Whitsenberg is currently being held in an Efmon prison, studied by Essan Efmon and his colleagues.
The Warden is a gigantic crab-like alien who is one of the most powerful Wallfixers. Realizing that the infinite array of universes is too much even for an organization like the Wallfixers to patrol, the Warden reinterpreted the Wallfixer tradition of teaching and training. Usually, that is taken to mean that they should find and train those who possess Wallfixer powers. The Warden decided there was no reason trainees needed those powers, and so founded the Myriad Worlds Police Force, an agency of unpowered individuals who prevent threats to reality. The Warden takes its current moniker from the fact that it watches over the pocket dimension used as a prison by the MWP.
Universe: Outside the Local Multiverse
The Xemulos of planet Erretaz are a species with four legs, fur, hooves, and tails. Their society is still fairly primitive by our human standards, they tend to live in herds that gather around watering holes on their fairly arid world without shelter and with little tool use. In spite of their resemblance to Earth animals such as horses or donkeys, their actual biological processes are more similar to what we’d call a reptilian style. Xemulos do speak vocal languages, all of them being tonal in nature, but more important to the meaning is the position of the ears while they speak.
Brrai is part of the leading unit of a herd. The leaders are generally the healthiest specimens of the herd, those who can lead and bear the risk of any danger that may strike from the front. They decide when and where the herd must go, they meet with the representatives of other herds, and they fight when necessary. That is rare, though, so most, including Brrai, have never resorted to violence. It’s much easier to run, after all.
Eabrur is addicted to Unnhurf, which is a fruit that Xemulos gather and store in such a way that it becomes intoxicating to them. Most Xemulos will just have Unnhurf as a celebratory thing, but those with addictive personalities, like Eabrur, can develop problems with it. Eabrur’s addiction has caused problems in the herd, with Eabrur lashing out at friends and family when they try to help.
Rhodit is part of a herd that is atypically nocturnal. In their region, the weather can be hotter than most of the rest of the world so they have adapted by taking shelter in cool caves during the day and coming out to eat at night. Rhodit is more territorial than most Xemulos and actually has claimed ownership of a preferred section of the cave. If it were possible to go without food, Rhodit would be perfectly happy never to leave the cave.
A Fact About Xemulos: A species of flea-like insectoid-creature has evolved to live off of Xemulos. They are mostly harmless, though annoying, to their hosts, and since the vast majority of Xemulos are infested with them, they don’t even realize how much better they’d be without them. The exception is a population of Xemulos on a secluded island who live with a species of flying animal that grooms the Xemulos by eating the parasites off them.
A largely humanoid species that evolved in a planet in a distant galaxy, the Zunkpork has developed technology capable of backing up their memories into computers, then growing new cloned bodies to house those memories when one of them dies. The clones are not considered to be the original person reborn, but is seen as a new person with the same memories. Numbers are assigned to the names of the new clones to designate how far down the line they are. No natural reproduction continues for the species any longer.
The Zunkpork have also spread into space and explored their galaxy, conquering some smaller species and forcing them to live under the rule of the Zunkpork Empire. The Zunkpork Empire was glimpsed in one Space Army comic, and then again when Little Choy insulted one of them, as is his wont.
Jogday 22 works in the Zunkpork Empire’s communications department. With an Empire that spans many planets, it is important to keep contact if the Emperor’s rules are going to be followed. Jogday simply does not care. Jogday will neglect to send important messages, will make up messages that were never sent, and in one case even posed as the Emperor and had Zunkpork forces evacuate a colonized planet just so they would stop sending messages. If anyone ever found out about any of this, Jogday would be punished. Luckily, nobody who investigates the problems ever seems to get the results of their inquiries.
Coquine 7, as can be judged by the single-digit number, is a survivor. Only six Coquines have died since the backup technology was invented, and every one has lived a fulfilling life. While not a bad person, Coquine has let this inflate their ego a bit, and does boast about survival skills and longevity to others. Ironically, this has led more than one person to daydream about killing Coquine just to prove a point, though luckily none have let this gone beyond fantasy. So far, anyway…
Stosus 46 lives in the shadow of predecessor Stosus 45. 45 was a criminal, executed for their crimes, but because of the rules of Zunkpork society, that did not prevent a clone from being made. Though 46 is considered another, different individual, all of 45’s memories are still in there. 46 definitely remembers the thrill of living as a criminal, but does not actually want to repeat the mistakes. But still, others look at Stosus and remember the last one they encountered, who was not quite as nice, and treat Stosus accordingly. With acquaintances like these, it isn’t easy to keep on the right track.
A Fact About the Zunkpork: Though they may look spongy or flabby, Zunkpork’s skin is actually hard like crystal and quite cool to the touch. If shattered, their skin takes a very long time to heal.
