It is said that the dangerous species Xenomorph XX121, sometimes known as the Kiande Amedha by certain interstellar hunters, needs only one species to survive on a planet in order to spell doom for its native inhabitants. This was the fate of a colony world in the outer rim planet of HD 88104 - all it took was one egg, smuggled in for resale by a space pirate, to spell the end of each human on the small, rocky world. With no messages sent to the outside galaxy, no help would ever come. An entire planet easily fell to the spread of this monstrous race.
By the time this forgotten and isolated world was rediscovered by researches, they found much had changed. The xenomorphs walked upright, dressed in mismatched clothing. They spoke in a soft language of hissing and chittering. Researches and their lightly armed companions were not met with fierce, dangerous monsters - they were greeted by curious, friendly individuals. Isolated for decades with automated factories, food farms, and a complete lack of their normal source of reproduction, the xenomorphs, perhaps through a quirk of genetic mutation or the powerful hand of some unknown influence, had civilized. They had evolved language and culture. With no apparent knowledge of the reputation of their own species, these dark, eyeless “monsters” called themselves the Kryss - simply “the people”, in their language.
The Kryss had limited access to records and media found in the original colony infested by their ancestors. With no way to learn human language, they could only guess as to the meaning of words and the lyrics of songs. Their understanding of culture and art is thus a patchwork of misinterpreted symbols and concepts.
A lack of meaningful context to ideas like binary gender means the Kryss sense of fashion is highly variable and androgynous, with individuals mixing different styles with no regard to original intent.
