Singular Residents of 'Llome
biatoma omnia veritas intelecta
The Xux is every bit like Spaak from Star Trek (though he antedates
Vulcan by several years). Cold, severe, and logical, his expertise is sought
matters of 'Llombic state. The Xux is bluish-white, putty-like, and pliable,
may be safely stretched quite far without much damage.
(and the Nimrod's greatest threat) is that he will be "depelted "by being
too far. The Xux is known to the residents by his characteristic greeting:
"Oh deer whattiz going on here". At times of stress,. the Xux exclaims
"Ohee!", particularly when the threat of depelting is imminent. He
in a hollow elm tree in blessed sequestration from the outside world, as
much as possible, the so-called Xux House. The Xux's primary area
is in the mystical, cabalistic science of Kleftnobulism.
An area so obscure, you will have to reserve your questions for the Xux
is a most unique creature, again with an advanced form of
locomotion. His single leg is terminated in a rather normal (in fact, large)
foot with toes. But the sole of the foot is a roller, the kind of roller
you might find in a hand carpet sweeper. To overcome the inefficient drag
of such an arrangement, evolution has given the Glasbloe a number of mucous
glands (like a clam or slug) to lubricate the terrain and ensure a smooth,
quick trip. The Glasbloe, though very friendly, is a bit naive, and quite
lonely because none of the other residents appreciate cleaning up after him.
In fact, they openly avoid the Glasbloe, in a complete renouncement of what
we now call diversity in our communities and workplaces. If the Glasbloe
has anything at all to contribute to 'Llombic society, such will be completely
unexpressed due to the unfortunate motor apparatus he must abide.
The Yohimbine also has evolved a rotatory locomotive means. His several
spindly legs are arranged around the circumference of a completely round
body, and he rolls like a pinwheel, at great speeds. He also suffers from
social rejection in that his steering is not always very accurate. Also,
depending upon his particular degree of rotation, he may in fact appear to
be upside-down, a position where a natural conversation is not particularly
