Vestige of Credence: Chapter 4
Part 25: Who are the Cumulus?
Feeling regretful about their mistake, they worked quickly to release Ramus from the elusa masulk. Her body was only distinguishable due to faint misty outlines and traces of gray and white color. Her hair shone silver and her eyes were like that of all Cumulus. For whatever adaptive reason, Cumulus eyes were white but each eye had a brown iris and black pupil.
Comparable to the Graphine, the Cumulus also had transformative abilities. They could shift in and out of visual form. The Cumulus could mimic the shapes of other creatures. Due to their semi-translucent form, they could not completely replicate physical form, but they could evoke the characteristics. Ramus was tall, slender, and wore nothing, just like all Cumulus. Her body featured natural beautiful swirling design and texture, almost resembling art. She did not have typical female parts that needed to be concealed, like most female species. Rather, she was female by voice and other characteristics, because Cumulus did not reproduce like most creatures. Although the Cumulus had derived vast amounts of information regarding physical beings and systems, it was not pleasant for them to admit that they still struggled to understand the energy that sustained their own existence.
Their coming into existence had been slow and thus far unexplainable. As each came into the world it seemed like they just appeared. Through the years, more and more had slowly emerged out of thin air into the sky, but no one could explain how. They did not age, and did not die of natural causes like disease. It was not yet even proven that they could die at all, only assumed by some advanced thinkers that enough electrical shocks might disperse their energy and life force. Thus far, such accumulation of electricity had not even been found on Terryl.
