Special Notes
Morpha’s race was forced from their home star system due to an impending stellar explosion, and has since been living on massive starships now converted to floating colonies due to lack of propulsion fuels. Morpha herself was born on Colony 45G73.

At age 349, Morpha joined the Expansion Forces, a military branch charged with trying to find via planets for relocation, specifically to get away from Colony 45G3. In training, she was bonded and trained in telepathy with Sya, a companion cat.

On their most recent mission, Morpha and Sya joined several dozen crewmates on a mission to explore the Sol system for a viable planet for relocation. An electromagnetic flare caused by a sunstorm paralyzed the small craft’s engines, causing it to eventually crash-land in the desert near Tucson on a hot summer night. Morpha and Sya were the only survivors, and now must try to survive on Earth until help can arrive.
