Telasrin is a short shrub native to Telios Prime. A parasitical species, telasrin roots wrap themselves around the roots of other plants so as to capture nutrients and water without killing them. By this process, the telasrin is able to maintain energy reserves, allowing the plant to grow faster, and cover more ground than other plants, quickly making it the dominant plant in an area, unless physically removed. Unfortunately, telasrin sap contains a powerful irritant that protects it from the fauna of Telios Prime, which has helped to classify this plant as a nuisance more than anything. This sap has been used as an insecticide by Telian farmers for many years.
