Stichus
Upload image

A stichus (plural: sticha) is an insect-like creature in Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Physical description[]

The stichus is insect-like, and equipped with claws. It also emits an electrical charge.

Habitat and diet[]

The stichus lives underground, perpetually digging for shelter as well as food. It prefers hard rock, since it eats the sparks created when its claws hit stone. A Stichus may survive by consuming the electrical charge from Numenera and other devices.

A community of sticha is present in Sagus Cliffs, as well as the Bloom, although it is probable that the creature originated from elsewhere.

Reproduction[]

The stichus lays eggs which have an electrical charge. They are quite valuable.

Communication[]

The stichus language is composed of a mixture of pheromones, gestures, and clicking sounds.

Relationship with humans[]

While not aggressive against humans (or any other somewhat peaceful species), a stichus' acts may lead to the loss of human lives. Sticha value humans the same way as humans value insects; they don't consider them to be sentient because they see humans as a dissonant species, unable to truly coexist.
