History

At one point, Dysini Krater Field was a piece of land called Dysini Field. Thousands of beautiful flowers in various shades of blue, yellow, and green stretched further than the eye could see in the summer. The summer flowers withered and were replaced with the white, pale blue, and pale purple flowers of winter. There were so many that the ground could barely be seen. Unconstrained, there was no order or conformity in their arrangement. It was relatively untouched by zu’aan. Being self-sufficient and self-pollinating, they didn’t have any need for caretakers. This is what allowed them to grow as they did. Sweet scents could be smelled from miles away, no matter what season. It was a wonderland thought to last forever, untouched by the outside world.

Until the war ravaged the world. As the kin’toni spread during the Awakening Age, war was inevitable. The zu’aan tried to fight back with weapons made for war. Atomic weapons reshaped the world and Dysini was no exception. Explosions of epic proportions destroyed the once beautiful flower wonderland, leaving giant craters of scorched land where flowers would never grow again… at least not naturally. The damage to the soil was extreme. With war still all around and kin’toni hordes spreading across the lands, the damage was irreversible. For decades, Dysini was uninhabitable. With no one able to take the time to recultivate the land and fix the damage, nothing was able to grow in the now infertile soil.


Even animals that had once been plentiful had migrated to other places, leaving only a fraction that was able to adapt behind. The entire ecosystem was thrown off balance. Some zu’aan, mainly scientists, weren’t deterred. After escaping the hordes and coming upon this area, they saw this as an opportunity to create something new in the chaos left behind by war. They created the walled Ywore City and set forth to use science to their advantage. With bioengineering knowledge that had been passed down from pre-Awakening Age zu’aan, they were able to mix science with life and create artificial plants that could both grow and thrive in infertile soil. It wasn’t until deep into the Shattering Age, and after several generations, that their efforts bore “fruit.”

Various artificial plants stretch across what is now called the Dysini Krater Fields. The scientists' use of krater instead of crater was accidental, a typo, but they decided to keep it. The name had its own charm, something that made this place theirs. Scientists are always striving to make something their own, to put their name on a new discovery or evolutionary invention. While they were proud of what they had accomplished, they had no idea what their creation was capable of. With their ability to evolve and the radiation left from the bombs, the artificial plants took over this piece of land within a few years. Some became carnivorous, attacking anything that expels a heat signature or even attacking other plants.


Others grew beyond their ability to control, becoming too strong to cut and even burn. Even the animals evolved due to the now native plants.

Geography

Before the war, Dysini was a pretty leveled field of flowers. There were a few small rising hills, barely a foot tall, spread throughout. After the war, the entire dynamic of the land was changed. Now, dozens of craters of various sizes make up the field. Some barely reach two feet in diameter, while others can span nearly 200 km across. There are only a handful that span this far, products of the bigger and more destructive bombs, but most only reach a diameter of maybe 100 km. Their depths can be anywhere from ankle deep to over four hundred feet. The larger craters are mostly in the center, with a few around the edges of the field. Most of the craters are heavily scorched, even where the artificial plants grow.

Not even time could heal the damage done. Some craters are so close to each other, only a thin stretch of land separates them. The climate is moderate during the summer, staying between sixty and eighty degrees. The nights can drop a bit, but not by much. During the colder months, it usually stays between forty and sixty degrees while dropping to the lower thirties at night. Before the craters, the temperature was considered perfect for vegetation growth as it was not too hot nor too cold. For artificial plants, the climate has little to no effect. They were designed to adapt and evolve with the conditions around them. The majority of the plants stay in bloom all year round.


Various engineered plants, that will only be found here, cover the floors of the craters. They crawl up its walls and spill out over the edges. In the smaller craters, the flowers fill up the entire center, standing up several inches and even feet past the edge. Each of the large craters acts almost as its own separate garden, a colorful variety of plants taking root inside of them. Some of the more aggressive plants have actually taken over some of the other craters and are creeping towards the edges of the field. They climb up the walls of Ywore and circle around it. The animals that adapted to the changes made their homes within the craters, burrowing into the sides. Holes of various sizes can be seen all over the craters.

Other animals have settled within some of the plant life, adapting and evolving as they consume them. Piles of leaves, sticks, and dirt make up their homes. There are also animals who live on or within the scattered trees around the west edge of the field. Ywore City sits between the larger craters, using them to up their defenses. With the width and depth of the craters being so large, the amount of time to reach the city increases. The plants inside the craters aid them as well. Many of the plants are dangerous, aggressive, and hard to navigate through. The craters and the plants allow them to have effective defenses.

Plants

The plants in the Dysini Krater Field are all artificially created by scientists. They are a bioengineering miracle that are able to adapt, evolve, and thrive in any kind of environment. Thanks to their ability to evolve and the leftover radiation, they are no longer under the control of the zu’aan. There are both docile and extremely aggressive plants growing from within the craters. Fyeed, or the Mimic Flower, is one of the more docile plants in the craters. As a defense mechanism, it has the ability to mimic the look of more dangerous plants around it. It copies the bright colors, the spiky hairs, and even the scents that mean danger. It actually has no scent unless in an active defense mode.

That is the only way it can protect itself. It has thin, stellate shaped petals of dark silver that meet at a pale purple bulb. They grow on shrubs and mainly take up the craters whose diameter spans a few feet. It has no medicinal capabilities and is inedible. Droxoom flowers usually grow around the fyeed and are usually the plant that it mimics the most. This yellow flower is also stellate shaped, but only when it is in full bloom. Its petals are usually closed and make a bulb-like shape. When it blooms, it reveals the thorns covering most of the inside. These thorns are poisonous and extremely sharp—sharp enough to pierce skin. Echamire is a highly aggressive plant in terms of growth.


It has huge dark green, toothed leaves that bunch together. Clusters of large, bell-shaped flowers grow upright in the center of the bunch. The outside of these flowers are dark blue while the inside is a mix of yellow and white spots. These flowers can produce hundreds of clusters at a time. These are also one of the few edible flowers that actually taste good. Most of the edible flowers in the craters have a bland or medicinal taste to them. Echamire has a sweet taste and every part of it is edible. With their bell shapes and upright position, they are also able to collect rainwater. There is a natural chemical in them that purifies the water of the radiation that still roams, making it safe to drink. A single flower can hold several ounces of water.

Bikore vines are a plant that is considered to be the most aggressive and dangerous. A single seed was planted in one of the large craters that sprouted thick vines that were white on the top and black on the bottom. Its roots are thick and stretch deep beneath the earth. They’ve spread far beyond their crater and actually climb the walls of Ywore. The vines are extremely hard to get rid of, especially towards the center. Bikore is a carnivorous plant that feeds on the dead. They crawl towards corpses and wrap around them, covering their bodies entirely. The zu’aan in Ywore have aided in their growth by leaving their dead to be consumed by the vines. If there is no death to consume, they will feed on other plants.

Animals

The animals in Dysini Krater Fields have adapted and evolved to survive and thrive in the war torn land. Radiation and artificial plants have changed them, giving them all sorts of mutations. Some animals changed from herbivores to carnivores. Some had their physical characteristics changed. Soft fur because tough and coarse, rounded teeth became sharp as razors, and eyes that could only see during the day could see at night to name a few. Donine caterpillars are native to Dysini. They lived within the flower fields long before the war. This pale blue caterpillar had black spots running all over its body and a small, rounded black horn coming out of the top of its head.

It could grow to nearly seven inches, making it the largest in the fields. As herbivores, it fed mainly on leaves and the occasional flower that grew or fell low. After going through its metamorphosis, it would become a beautiful, bright blue butterfly with black spots that helped pollinate the field. After the war, the radiation, and the artificial plants that it fed on, it evolved. Sharp spikes grew from the black spots and its horn sharpened as well. The spikes contained venomous toxins that can kill if entered into the bloodstream. Donine caterpillars were docile, but they became incredibly aggressive after they evolved. Achaine lizards are probably the biggest and most dangerous animals in Dysini.


Even before their change, they were considered dangerous. These highly territorial creatures had tough, dark green scales on its body that transitioned to dark red around its head. Small, rounded horns perused from its head. They could grow to nearly two meters in length and weigh over a hundred pounds. They were venomous, but as long as the bite was treated, it was not fatal. They fed on insects, flowers, and small rodents. After their change, the venom in their bites increased in toxicity. Even if treated, the possibility of death was also increased. They developed the ability to camouflage themselves as well, making them better hunters along with their surprising speed.

While they were aggressive if provoked before, now they actively attack not just small rodents but zu’aan and even kin’toni. Luckily, the size of their population is small as the majority of their offspring die before hatching. Lapinae are a special breed of hummingbird also native to Dysini. Its feathers, both before and after its change, are of an iridescent mix of teal and gold, and its wings a mix of pale purple and gold. Out of all of the animals, this bird actually changed the least. It’s believed, by the scientists there, that this is due to their migration to the south during the winter. Scientists have been unable to determine the exact cause as these hummingbirds are extremely hard to capture and study as they usually stay in the trees unless they are coming down to eat.


Their outward appearance hardly changed after they evolved other than their colors becoming a bit dark and their wings becoming sharper to allow them to fly even faster. They still help pollinate the plants and still have the same diet of nectar and insects.
