A rigid, glassy object somewhere between an egg and a cocoon. It's extremely lightweight for its size, but it seems to be alive.
Juvenile Stage Notes
The object split open, revealing it to be the casing of a creature. It looks heavily bioengineered, and has cables for arms. Despite this, it is most comfortable in the water. It is very shy and hides from people most of the time.
Adult Stage Notes
Dysonettes are one of the most heavily bioengineered creatures found on Chroma—or more accurately, around it. While baby and juvenile Dysonettes are found in clean freshwater areas, adults are most often found in low planetary orbit. They spend weeks at a time using their gossamery wings as solar sails, and descend to the planet's surface to drink and to offload excess energy generated from sunlight. They will infuse random objects with solar or electrical energy, then leave for low orbit once again.
Dysonettes have extremely poor hearing, but seem to be fairly intelligent. They communicate with each other by flashing their side lights over vast distances, and researchers have been attempting to decode these flashes. They can be trained to return to the same spot when they descend and offload power into batteries, and they are extremely useful for any researcher who wants a bit more electricity for their side projects. They have a good memory for faces, and get very attached to anyone who raises them.
Occasionally, Dysonettes that have come to the ground will approach and overcharge Knuttes and other mechanical creatures with an incredible amount of energy. This can be disastrous.
