The Pinthi are a species of intelligent bioweapons, genetically engineered viruses which have gained a measure of sapience after millions of generations of evolution. Originally discovered by the Scryve, the Pinthi committed many atrocities during the millennia before they achieved awareness. Feeling great regret for these crimes, the Pinthi now despise the Scryve and are one of the few species in the area actively resisting them. They're still hated and feared by everyone else though, as horrific bioweapons so often are.


The Pinthi are viruses clumped together into slimelike masses. In their DNA they have a degree of ancestral memory, including attack vectors, methods for infecting specific species included in their genetic code. While they are a natural species they have been modified by the Scryve to better serve as weapon. Among their known symptoms is coughing and eventually liquification.


Society and Culture

The Pinthi are a very conscientious species, due to their desire for repentance for having unwillingly killed so many. They have a great desire to "get better", but know the danger of other species getting close to them. They often warn other species to avoid them, due to fear of infecting them.


The Pinthi do not know their homeworld, so their territory is centered around a supercolony of pinthi established by the Scryve in Alpha Acroix. They have several regrowth colonies for increasing their numbers.

Pinthi Contagion

Pinthi Contagion

The Pinthi Contagion begins its life as a repurposed comet or other small body from a solar system's Kuiper Belt. Originally developed by the Scryve as a means of deploying the Pinthi against the worlds of aliens they didn't like very much, since gaining sapience, the Pinthi have made a few changes of their own design. Its primary weapon is now a spore cloud gun, capable of badly damaging an enemy's health from a distance. This is supported by the Contagion, a small autonomous subcolony of the main vessel, capable of firing its own spore clouds.
