SOLAR EMPRESS Sketch by wewewezing Wingspan: 60-75 meters Primary Attack: Flashbang Secondary Attack: Sonic Song Life Cycle: The Solar Empress, also commonly referred to as "The Falling Star Moth," begins life in its larval stage, burrowed high in the crust above Hollow Earth. During the night cycle, they can be seen dotting the "sky" in the thousands thanks to their bioluminescence, which sets the region alight in a near-perfect recreation of the night sky on the surface world. Upon completing its metamorphosis, the adult moth emerges from its burrow--and drops; its rapid, glowing descent reminiscent of a meteor entering earth's atmosphere. It only has a few precious moments to master the use of its new wings before its fall becomes fatal. Fortunately, instinct takes over, and the Empress escapes unscathed every time. Or at least... more often than not. Food Chain: As a larva, the Empress must rely on the various fauna that also frequent the higher levels of Hollow Earth for sustenance. Once detecting its prey, it utilizes its sticky, stringy saliva (and exceptional aim) to snag a target dozens of meters out, reeling it into its open maw with surprising--oftentimes disturbing--speed. As an adult moth, however, it has given up its carnivorous diet in favor of a more familiar one: nectar. Just like moths and butterflies on our surface world, the Solar Empress plays an important part in its own ecosystem by pollinating the many unique species of flora that share it. The Empress is generally a docile creature, but Hollow Earth is a savage land, and even titans have a natural order. If forced to defend itself, the Empress will rapidly vibrate its wings, creating a high-pitched song whilst blinking its glowing abdomen to disorient its attacker; a kaiju-sized version of a flashbang grenade. Explorers be warned: this display is potentially lethal to humans.
