One of my favorite aliens is the graceful and mysterious Delvian Zhaan from Farscape. If only her species were real. Here’s what makes them special.
Zhaan is a Delvian. They are a humanoid sentient plant species that’s capable of movement.
They have bluish white hair or go bald. Their colored skin comes from chloroplast tintation. Their skin is covered with yellow stomata that transmit water into their systems.
It is said that they have cartilaginous fibers instead of bone which is why Zhaan seems to move with fluidity and grace. Her species has tuperadinous cellulose tissue, and regenerative fascia membrane.
Delvians live for a very long time. During the show she mentions that 800 cycles is considered mid-life.
Now it may seem weird but the idea of being part plant and part humanoid is fascinating. I’ve always considered myself partial to the sun’s rays. What about you?
If you were a plant what kind would you be?
