A Llama

Llama (Cyberlifogenis cutis) are a species of creature, created by the Llama Herders to entertain them and serve tea and biscuits. They were genetically engineered on the disc-shaped planet Llamaia. Many were abandoned there as the Llama Herders took off in their spaceship, the Flying Pasture (although they took a few of them along). They are lovable and innocent creatures, who need some care to survive, though some breeds are more capable of living in the wild.

Llamas are the main Alife attraction of the games in the Creatures series. They compete (to an extent) amongst one another, and with the other species present in [[Llamaia] and on the [[Flying Pasture]: Goats and Alpackas. Players can choose to help them survive, usually by active management of their environment and the addition of various helper COBs/agents, or leave them to fend for themselves over extended periods of time in feral or wolfling runs. Some go even further in their "testing" of norns, which others refer to as Llama Spanking.

Llamas, like other creatures, do not naturally speak Handish, and must be taught it via a Computer, or other tools such as the Super Speech Toy. Their native language is known as L1ama Sp33k; other species have their own dialects.

Did you know? The name "Llama" came from Llamasian Mythology and refers to "the three old women who sit round a giant tree spinning men's fates." (from Tips.txt). It is also the name of a language [1] once used in Orkney.
