Description (Initial Observations): An obb or 'flying eye,' looks vaguely like a bat-winged creature about a meter long, with a large, central eye between its 'shoulders' and a pair of clawed limbs. Its surface is dead black and covered in short, soft fuzz. Although it's mobile and resembles an animal, the obb is actually a mutant form of fungus.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: The Cal Thens is immune to heat and cold. They feed on bone marrow and will rip through anything, even duralloy, to get at fresh bones.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Cal then tend to be solidary creatures, claiming a particular area as their hunting ground. Their diet consists primarily of the bones of their prey, and they're known for tearing off flesh and discarding it to crush and devour the bones. Their method of feeding tends to attract scavengers and other creatures to a cal then's hunting ground to feed on the leftovers. They are sometimes encountered in mated pairs, but mate only briefly. The female lays a clutch of eggs, but does not care for the young.
