Birrin Study by Abiogenisis Birrin Study by Abiogenisis
The Birrin are a sentient hexapod (six limbed) species from a planet approximately the size of Venus. This individual, gaudily attired, lives (and sometimes works) in the tropical regions of their world, bordering the uninhabitably hot equatorial zone many birrin call the 'Kiln'. Low employment, high temperatures and generally harsh conditions mean that narcotic use is high among many of the population here. This birrin, after ending a work cycle and with no further hive duties, uses and deals in most of the local low end narcotics. The three clasped in the beak offer an enjoyable combination of flavours when partaken together. Other mixes are stored in plain view under a strap on the head for sale or later use. As there is no substance control in this region, they can be shown in plain sight. Potentially quite profitable, this individual has found much use for the money brought its way through the sale of longneck cigarettes. Either through trade or purchase, he has adorned himself with plenty of flaunted accessories, include a wrist mounted multimedia device, which feeds headphone cables to the auditory receptors at the tip of the upper two eyestalks; the device was likely traded illegally, or purchased from a wholesale shipment moving from the deep water docks on its way inland. Completing his accoutrements are an old cigarette lighter, a wallet strapped to the forearm, and a few rolls of personally selected drugs to his personal taste bound to his neck.

Would it at all be possible for you to start a series solely on the Birrin, like a much more in-depth look at their culture, physiology, history, planet, star system, technology, etc.? I really like how much you've already gone into explaining these things and I'd love to learn more lore.

Oh absolutely. All this images are part of that bigger idea.

Awesome. If you published it all as a book, I'd be the first to pre-order that for sure. Would you mind if I asked some general questions about the Birrin? I love world building.

Okay, so my first questions had to do with astronomy and generally about their planet. 1) What is their name for their planet? 2) How big is it compared to Earth and how many 'G's do they experience? 3) How many moons do they have (I know atleast 2)? 4) Do they have a similar atmosphere to us, or do they breathe CO2 or Nitrogen or something like that? 5) How far away are they from their sun, and what place are they in terms of planetary orbit (ie Earth would be Sol 3)? 6) Where are they located in relation to us? Are they within our stellar neighborhood, somewhere else in the Milky Way, or a whole other galaxy?

I like to think that with the quintillions of stars in the universe, the Birrin are very likely to exist somewhere.
