Goo creatures (drones included): Gyubasium-based
Goo creatures are usually born at the apparent age of eight or ten, and already have basic knowledge (movement, diet, etc. that an eighteen-year-old would know), then grow larger and larger.
Education is a specialized system in the queendom. It is mandatory for eight years starting at age four (or right from birth for drones), though they can start earlier. Children get to choose the path they wish to take, whether it be an art, or maybe studying business, even as far as becoming a drone (which, each drone model gets specialized training for on top of existing classes). Most teachers are drones themselves (ET models to be precise), however that does not mean there aren’t regular goo creatures teaching. After they graduate, they can choose to return for classes at any time to continue their studies.
Office jobs exist within the queendom. Accounting is mostly done by the machines, but drones or goo creatures also chime in and analyze for errors. Customer service is something that many are happy with here, and a number of other office jobs are performed here. Agriculture is an important task, especially for our local “Pompa Berry”.
Transportation of citizens across the queendom is performed via underground pneumatic tubes made of crystallized rubber. A group of citizens climb into capsules with four tanks (each rated to hold almost two normal sized citizens) which are launched from several stations around Kurabli, including the one right beside the castle. Vehicles powered by fossil fuels are outlawed to prevent pollution, however electric-powered bikes for private transportation (made of the same crystallized rubber) are available for use.
Kurabli does not contain a death penalty of any kind. Instead, subjects are subjected to a dronification, with a complete mind wipe if severe enough.
It is forbidden to wipe the memories of any Kurabli citizen during assimilation of any kind — including but not limited to dronification, unbirth, and cloning — except with direct permission from the Queen, or the target has already been duplicated (cloned). Failure to oblige will result in dronification.
Creatures that are not Gyubasium-based are allowed to roam while accompanied by a drone or citizen, as non-Gyubasium creatures will not be able to operate the technology in the queendom by design. Repeat visitors are encouraged to undergo an assimilation and move to the queendom.
Bio-compound, Solid-Liquid. The material is capable of carrying consciousness in a hive-like form, i.e. all the molecules staying in connection to each other forms a link, which produces consciousness. Gyubasium is able to multiply itself on request.
Bio-compound, Solid-Liquid. Carries the same traits as Gyubasium, but is more solid, and similar to latex.
Solid. A crystallized form of inanimate Melditium (i.e. not possessed by a conscience) generated from pressure and magic. Can be converted back into normal Melditium.
Solid-Liquid. A conductive liquid that mixes with Gyubasium and is able to carry vast amounts of data. Used in technology across Kurabli.
Food and Plants
Blueberries with thicker skin, multiple juice pockets, and about the size of an apple, glowing a nice blue in the moonlight. No special effect on goo creatures, but overconsumption of Pompa inflates any solid beings with it’s juice, turning them blue and immobilizing them for up to a full day.
- Gyubaki - Capital / Castle Location. Surrounded by forests to the north, east, and south, and mountains towards the west.
- Nuro - Mountain-surrounded city adjacent to Gyubaki.
The Kurabli drones are the guardians, protectors, and servants of the Kurabli queendom. Their bodies consist of a goo-like liquid latex, allowing them to be identified separately from the other citizens of the queendom. With no need for food or rest (though both are still enjoyable), they’re perfect for their assigned tasks. The moment that their conversion begins, and the corruptive latex touches their body, their original form is thrown away with no return, although their gooey nature allows them to mimic any species' appearance. A visor replaces their eyes, glowing in a color set upon conversion (usually their favorite), and a digital rendering of eyes display on the exterior of the thick screen. The stripes along their body and through their hair and tail, as well as their entire tongue and throat, wings, horn(s), and any other special traits are all the same color as their visor. On the side of their hip is an ID code, stating their particular model(s) (the first two to four letters before the dash) and their personal ID number (four alphanumerical characters). Drones receive a specific model upon maturity (eight years of age) or by the royal order.
Unlike typical drones, the drones of Kurabli aren’t mindless, despite their programming to obey every command from their superiors (primarily Queen Vinyl Darkscratch). Their personalities are unaltered otherwise, with the exception of preventing any possible harm to any being in the queendom, themselves included. Many of these drones have families they care for, and typically live a normal life within the queendom.
The Kazotetsu family, including Queen Vinyl, are the only ones capable of producing ULT drones. FU and ULT drones are unable to produce ULT drones without the assistance of a Kazotetsu.

Drones have abilities and features other goo creatures don’t have, but there’s also downsides for them as well: all of them look the same aside from a change in their glowing color for one, their genes are dominant, more to the point of a virus (child is always a drone), and are programmed to follow the Queen’s commands without resistance or hesitation. Still, food sleep are no longer a requirements, and they’re able to retain their free will and personality unlike drones of other kinds.
Mysterious trait: drones emit some kind of indication of their identity; that is, friends and family of a drone will recognize who they are before they are aware of the dronification process. The exact cause is undetermined, though it's suspected to be visual stimuli in the glowing patterns.
A drone's body is formed from Gyubasium, Neon, Xenon, Melditium, Cronolium, and more.
With the current ID format, each model or model mix can have up to 1,679,616 (36^4) different drones. In total, this means that there can be up to 92,378,893 drones until the ID format must change.
Children of drones are still drones, they’re just young. Their ID code is imprinted the moment they’re created/born, but until they’ve reached eight years of age or otherwise by royal order, their model specification is “NA” (literally, “None Applicable”).
