-The Aveillite are the prime inhabitants of the planet Aveilla and known to be the only sapient species on the planet. They are notable for their ability to adapt any language they learn throughout their lives and their varying appearance and shape, as well as their hive-like system of society. The Aveillites are known to have entered space age centuries ago with respect to the human timeline, having visited and interacted with other alien species, created alliances, as well as participating in interstellar wars throughout their history. They have not interacted with the entirety of the human race to have done any sort of "​abductions",​ though they have visited the planet to exchange information through the Starlight Observation Station in its recent years.+The Aveillite are the prime inhabitants of the planet Aveilla and known to be the only sapient species on the planet.

 Aveilla may refer to all or any one of the 8 planets in their star system that the species have made into homes including the mother planet. Although this name more often than not refers to the mother planet itself, also known as Aveilla I. Aveilla I's environment is notably like Earth in many aspects, with the proper distance from their star, Tivoli, that allows their planet to mimic the climate conditions of Earth, matched with the appropriate balance between earth and sea. The planet itself has thinner atmosphere compared to Earth that while it is capable of supporting human life, it's very much like living along the peaks of Mount Everest even on the low plains of the planet. The planet has climates ranging from temperate-tropical around its equator to the harsh tundra as it reaches the poles, and flora and fauna of the planet have evolved to match the climates of different areas from the mountain-tops,​ the vast plains, the subterranean caverns, and even down to the depths of the oceans. Aveilla may refer to all or any one of the 8 planets in their star system that the species have made into homes including the mother planet.

 The lower halves of their mouths would remind a human of felines. Their nose are inverted triangles, made of hard material similar to their exoskeleton with the central lower point connecting to their mouths through a medial cleft. Their mouths are suspiciously shaped like "​w"​s,​ and some have notable stubble on the area above the upper lip. Their tongues are particularly flat, to add to their feline-like traits though it does not possess the same texture as cats and are particularly slimy. They have teeth that grow in a familiar manner, but they are rather small compared to what can be seen on adult humans. The only exception is that they possess a set of "​double fangs" on both upper and lower jaws that are particularly pointed. An intended bite from an Aveillite can pierce the human skin and even leave 8 puncture marks. The lower halves of their mouths would remind a human of felines.

-None of them really have eyebrows but in place of these are antennae, located above the smaller set of eyes which pick up vibrations in the air. This serves as the hearing sensory for Aveillites, but also as main sensory especially when sight is unavailable. Sight is one of the weakest senses that most Aveillites would possess. Aveillites also have markings unique for all individuals,​ much like a fingerprint for humans. These appear as "​tattoos"​ which are special patterns that appear on the chest area and the forehead. There is a theme that goes on per type and relatives tend to have similar patterns but no two Aveillites share the exact same mark even between twins.+None of them really have eyebrows but in place of these are antennae, located above the smaller set of eyes which pick up vibrations in the air.

-Additionally,​ all Aveillene species that possess blood have blood color of yellow ochre, save for a few larger animals in the planet (mostly the venomous ones).+All Aveillites also have markings unique for all individuals,​ much like a fingerprint for humans.

 ====Reproduction==== ====Reproduction====
  
-Aveillites are known to not only lack sexual dimorphism, but they are also considered a biologically intersex species. Aveillite families often have two parents, but having three parents isn't considered rare either. They reproduce sexually; one parent chooses to carry the child for about 5 (Aveilla) months until giving birth to a live young, first appearing slug-like until they develop their legs to become proper larvae in the first three months. Normally, Aveillites give birth to one offspring at a time, but there are cases of multiple births, but these are quite rare. +Aveillites are known to not only lack sexual dimorphism, but they are also considered a biologically intersex species.

 ====Life Cycle==== ====Life Cycle====
  
-The life of an Aveillite begins at birth. They are "born alive" ​as larvae and then transported to communal hives for where they will be cared for by a Matron for a whole star cycle. This stage is particularly tricky since Aveillite larvae tend to be destructive but also rather fragile, making larva-sitting ​a full-time job.+The life of an Aveillite begins at birth.

This stage is particularly tricky since Aveillite larvae tend to be destructive but also rather fragile, making ​raising ​larva a full-time job.
  
-As they reach their first star cycle, they are biologically programmed to enter a metamorphoses stage, creating cocoons for themselves as they sleep away for an Aveillene month in their individual pods. There are cases that some larvae never get past this stage, either due to an error while making their cocoons, an extended delay in development,​ or possibly even having been unable to crack open their cocoons. Matrons do not assist in the emergence not only due to possible risks of being too early, but also because late-comers tend to be weaker, with some not even being able to withstand the planet'​s atmosphere and dying within days.+As they reach their first star cycle, they are biologically programmed to enter a metamorphoses stage, creating cocoons for themselves as they sleep away for an Aveillene month in their individual pods.

-Survivors emerge as podlings, gaining a humanoid form with their whole body covered with hard "baby shells",​ including their tails. In this stage, they normally don't have wings yet (or fins). In this stage, they would then be transported back to their respective parents who are now expected to become their educators for basic up to general knowledge.+Survivors emerge as podlings, gaining a humanoid form with their whole body covered with hard "baby shells",​ including their tails. In this stage, they normally don't have wings yet (or fins, on the aquatic type). In this stage, they would then be transported back to their respective parents who are now expected to become their educators for basic up to general knowledge.
  
-By the time they reach their 3rd star cycle, they enter a molting stage to shed out their baby shells, eventually growing a new one which is more appropriate for their type. This is also the point where they now begin to grow their wings and achieve ​control for their tails. Islanders also show their extra fins in this stage. The oldest age an Aveillite can be expected to enter this stage is up to 4 cycles old. This period lasts up to two months and while not as risky as the metamorphoses stage, this is essentially the "​puberty stage" for Aveillites, making it a very stressful time for podlings..+By the time they reach their 3rd star cycle, they enter a molting stage to shed out their baby shells, eventually growing a new one which is more appropriate for their type. This is also the point where they now begin to grow their wings and achieve ​maximum tail maneuverability. Islanders also show their extra fins in this stage.

-They enter what is the Aveillite equivalent of adolescence ​as early as 3 star cycles and as late as 4 star cycles. By the time they reach 5 star cyclesthey are expected ​to enter a college ​and enter training for general professions.+Young Aveillites actually molt more than once, but it is the last molting period that is marked ​as the most significant:​ this being the stage where they molt out their "​baby"​ exoskeleton (which appears similar all throughout the species)in place of one that is more suitable for their type. The ones prior to this are only to replace old and damaged exoskeleton which isn't too often. They molt once every year in the shortest span until they pass adolescence ​and enter adulthood.

-An Aveillite enters young adulthood at the age of 6 star cycles ​-- usually ​by the same time they have entered employment stage, ​while some prefer to continue into specializations -- usually ​those that participate in the sciences. They are considered adults once they reach 11 cycles old until they reach old age at 40 star cycles old. The legal age of retirement is at age 35, although spacers tend to retire as early as 30.+An Aveillite enters young adulthood at the age of 6 star cycles.

 Generally, Aveillites have difficulty in digesting meat, even when processed, though there are some exceptions who have developed to be able to digest meat. One such type are the Quarries who have resided along the mountain rangest more -- having a lack of food source have made them more adaptive to the limited resource. The Islanders, on the other hand have adapted to include processed fish into diets as well. For other Aveillite types, meat consumption just leads to just regurgitating the food when attempted to be eaten. Generally, Aveillites have difficulty in digesting meat, even when processed, though there are some exceptions who have developed to be able to digest meat.

-Some (edible) berries native on earth somehow have relatives growing on Aveilla which are considered to be poisonous to Aveillites. Although, artificial flavoring is relatively safe for them to consume. Processing them usually takes out the poisonous chemicals but some actually activate it so most Aveillites just have an aversion to any sort of berries. Chemicals that 'heat up' the human body are intoxicants to Aveillites. This includes not only includes ​liquor but also the chemical capsaicin (present in various chili) which the can be affected through consumption. Minty chemicals like eucalyptus and menthol give the same intoxicating effect just by being smelled. Liqour isn't lethal but it's effects are nearly doubled.+Some (edible) berries native on earth somehow have relatives growing on Aveilla which are considered to be poisonous to Aveillites.

 Often during the state of newly terraformed planets, individuals that fulfill the requirements needed and possess the appropriate biological and legal status would be sent to the planet to assist in the acclimation of the new colony as according to its needs. The first to be sent are usually those of the quaternary sector who have the tools and knowledge to study the lay of the land, the resources, and the procedures needed to transform the planet to something that can be put to use. They are later than followed by one of the other sectors, again, depending on the need. Often during the state of newly terraformed planets, individuals that fulfill the requirements needed and possess the appropriate biological and legal status would be sent to the planet to assist in the acclimation of the new colony as according to its needs.

-Being a known diplomatic species, the Aveilla Cluster often have embassadors sent to planets they are allied with. Earth has it's own Aveillene Envoy, though they are connected thruugh Manta Carlos only. It's not new for the Aveilla Cluster to have discreet relationships with colonies and planets; Earth would not be the first to be closed off from general extraterrestrial activity. Envoys have nearly the same authority as a Colonial Administrator in the Aveilene ​government but they are in a more complex position given that they represent for two species.+Being a known diplomatic species, the Aveilla Cluster often have embassadors sent to planets they are allied with.
