Caeruleum Torus Molluscs

These organisms are so called because of the ring-like shape of their shell. Despite being animals, they generate chemical energy through a process similar to photosynthesis, using their tentacles to absorb starlight.

— In-Game Description

Torus Molluscs are non-sapient, spacefaring creatures that inhabit Notable Stellar Phenomena and loosely resemble the molluscs native to Earth. They will retreat if attacked or approached within 100m, and are only known to appear in systems with white dwarf stars.

  • Blatteum Torus Mollusc
  • Caerulem Torus Mollusc
  • Flavum Torus Mollusc
  • Rubellum Torus Mollusc
