These creatures are skinny and have four legs and two arms. Their head is occupied by one large eye, but no other facial features, as they absorb chemicals through pores on the skin on their hands. They have three senses; sight, touch and a final extra one, that gives the Javanian the ability to build up a picture in the brain of electrical activity. Thus, if a Javanian was in the presence of a Human, then it would see the brain, and nervous system.
They have no heart, and energy is carried around the body through their nervous system, which is, rather than thousands of cells, tunnels filled with mercury which convey electical signals around the body, as well as electrical energy to power the body. They contain only one cell, as the simple cells they evolved from just grew larger, rather than forming colonies and multi-cellular organisms.
They are extremely aggresive, and intelligent. Most of their wars are fought over what they think to be the most important resource in the galaxy; knowledge. They store huge chunks of information in knowledge banks all over their home planet, and every other planet they have populated. Many of these are destroyed in short times, but before they are, the information stored in them is transfered to another. Their technological and scientific progress is stymied by wars and famines caused by the intellectual greediness of these creatures.
The Veto Mortem System, home to the Javanians, itself is about 2 billion 600 million years old (7 billion Earth Years), though life did not appear on Mortem V until 1 and a half billion years (4 billion Earth Years) after the system's creation. The initial life was not much different from that of Earth's early life, but over time based creatures evolved and became the dominant form of life on the planet. (The other forms of life on Mortem V are Carbon based, (like life on Earth) Silicon based, and Water based.)
