The Ornithocheirus

The Ornithocheirus (or-neth-oh-k-eye-russ) are a series of biomechanical pteranodontoids that serve as highly maneuverable and heavily armed, flight vessels. Ornith’s are capable of submersible function, and are equipped with weapons, and the ability to operate without a pilot. There are only six Ornithocheirus in existence, and they are used exclusively by Surface Operational and the Sorority of Defense.

The Ornithocheirus series was designed by Sixth-Gen Hizak Kadol Polvix, of Pentulax Constructs. Their cellular biology was cultivated from the preserved remains of an Ornithocheirid, found on the bay floor in Greenland. Trapped in an ice-sheet that had melted over the course of the 22nd century, the remains of the lone beast were brought back by Second Ramaxian Gen engineers, during the construction of a sluice-extension at Greenland HydrothermalOnce it’s cerebral-core was designed, a cloned life-form was grown at Orta Biologic, and fitted with a bio- tharspin hull from Pentulax Constructs. After fusion of its organic neural base and bio-tharspin body, it developed a photovoltaic ‘fluid-tharspin’ coat, allowing its metallic skin to appear seamless, as if living.

The Ornithocheirus is the only life-form not telepathically connected to the Collective. Trained as an operative of Orta, it is compelled to sync all experiences and mission logs with hive Pentox, every 22 hours. Ornith’s are designed to house two Femmar, up to five years between the poles (there are two hibernation units, a sanitation unit, and private storage); it can also serve as short and long range transport, for up to five Femmar.
