Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
- Litwick 
- Lampent 
- Chandelure 
Notable BiologyLitwick’s body appears to be made entirely from wax, although nothing can get close enough to examine it properly without being rendered unconscious from energy loss. However, x-ray equipment is able to take images of Litwick’s body, which seem to show that it does have some form of internal organs made out of some waxy substance. Despite being seen to come into contact with solid surfaces, Litwick have occasionally been sighted floating through walls, which suggests that like other Ghost-type Pokemon, Litwick has some control over its molecules, so it is at least partially formed of umbrate. The Litwick line is notable in being one of the few known carbon-based life forms to have their cellular structure be primarily ester-sterol rather than the lipid based structure of most beings; this is hypothesized to be the result of the evolution of a Proto-Epilobia like creature within a pool of high wax content. Akin to the modern development of the Grimer. One of the most notable aspects of the line is that they are psychiphagic, while the Litwick may inject the occasional raw minerals, the primary chemical reaction that drives its biology must be fueled by a constant complex electric current, such as those found in the brains of most life forms. Litwick exist as a massive non-lipid germinal epithelium to power there metabolism, in which the breakdown local minerals to form a buildup of ore with their bodies in a long internal “wick” with which they digest the ambient electromagnetism of various creatures. In this young age the metabolism is quite advanced, as a result most of their prey remains in a comatose state, leading to legends of them as a soul-stealer. The waste product of this metabolism, as constant purple-blue flame is one of the hallmarks of the line and its glow has been adapted by years of evolution as a lure and a weapon. When significant amounts of ore have developed within central spire, a Litwick will process hem into large external shell, made of organic glass, which holds the reaming ester-sterol cells which now have been reduced to a single digestive track. From the central silicate head an organic metal system of capillaries flows outward, allowing better manipulation of the internal flame. At this stage the metabolism is significantly lesser, and, due to their more brittle state, they become scavengers, consuming the electricity from the brains of dead life forms as they fail.
HabitatLitwick frequently live in places with swamps and other dangers into which to lure their prey or in graveyards with high amounts of residual life energy. Lampent live in similar areas, but also can be found in cities trailing after potential targets or attempting to lure passers into traffic or other dangers.
DietThe line is exclusively Psychiphagous in the early stages of its life, using the neurological energy of other life forms to feed it’s eternal combustion, a necessary feature for its unique structure. Juveniles, in the highest phase of growth, often leach energy from other species to the point of permanent brain death, after it evolution when it’s structure is more conservative and more efficient, it tends to only feed on the ambient off put of recently dead life forms. Although it has a mouth, Litwick does not actually eat physical food. Instead, it absorbs energy and emotions from living creatures nearby. In addition, Litwick uses its light to lure people and wild Pokemon to death in order to absorb the energy of the dying soul. As a result, Litwick are frequently found in swampy areas, although they are also occasionally sighted hovering over open manholes in cities. Like Litwick, Lampent absorbs energy from the living. It also follows those who are about to die, being able to absorb energy from them more easily than healthy individuals. Because of this, Lampent often hang onto buildings pretending to be lamps in order to more easily find prey. Because Chandelure are rarely sighted in the wild, there have been few opportunities to examine them. Based on the behavior of the occasional ones that have been seen, Chandelure appear to have a diet similar to Litwick and Lampent. However, most Chandelure are capable of draining far more energy. If any living thing becomes immersed one's central flame, almost all of its life force will be transferred to the Chandelure, leaving a barely animate and intelligence lacking body behind. This has lead to many stories of creatures called 'zombies' attacking.
BehaviorLitwick is known for its habit of leading lost people into dangerous and often deadly situations by imitating human lighting in areas that are not safe for humans. It is commonly theorized that this behavior is due to Litwick not being mature enough to drain enough energy for survival from a living host, and thus attempts to cause deaths for it to feed upon. This may also have led to legends of Litwick leading dead souls to the afterlife, although it is more likely that Litwick actually absorbs the dead souls instead. Upon evolving into Lampent, it appears to gain the ability to sense when death is about to occur. It will often follow a person whose death it senses is near, siphoning off small volumes of energy from the target until their death. If a Lampent is following you for no apparent reason, don’t panic, but remain alert and seek medical assistance. This trickery has led to widespread mistrust of this Pokemon and many superstitions linking it and misfortune. However, in some cultures Trainers who own a Lampent are considered lucky, as they can save trainers that they like from accidents; but it is a bad idea for trainers to mistreat Lampent as they may intentionally lead those they hate into harm.
HazardsAs the line is inherently Psychiphagous, be sure to ward your Litwick off from feeding on members of you party. Overfeeding is the number one causes of death around Litwick and, it is suggested that Trainers use radio-based Artificial Soul Substitute instead; foraging for natural silicates is encouraged however. Once developed into the median stage, your Pokémon may feed on ambient life energy from you and your party members, as by this stage substance is natural. Be wary of the flames, as, like other Ever burn Pokémon they are quite hot, and are tied directly to your Pokémon’s internal biology, and thus cannot be snuffed.
Courting and ChildrearingAll members are capable of reproduction, although this is more common with the Juvenile stage, due to their larger amounts of fat and energy. After morphs of the line release a spermatozoon glob of wax, it is ingested by the female until process, there, it merges with her ambient ova cells, and an egg is devolved within the female out of her natural occurring silicate. Interbreeding with other species is rare but possible. In the wild this does not occur, as the species only coterminous is incompatible to its Egg Group (and possibility the planet). In captivity, they often enjoy mating with other indeterminate group members, mostly by the inserting of their Spermatozoon wax into the protoplasm of the various mates (or vice-versa) Litwick is sexually mature from birth, although it does not use organs to reproduce. Instead, baby Litwick are produced when molten wax from a male Litwick comes into contact with a female Litwick. The wax from the male Litwick melts and mixes with some of the wax on the female, and slowly develops into a small Litwick. The baby then remains attached to the female until it is strong enough to absorb energy, after which it detaches and goes on its own way. This method of reproduction generally occurs only where Litwick are swarming, as swarms tend to appear in areas with high amounts of residual life energy, such as graveyards, where infants have a higher chance of survival. Lampent does not usually reproduce, as they channel their energy towards growing and finding a Dusk Stone to evolve. On the rare occasions when Lampent do reproduce, they do so in a manner similar to Litwick. Unlike its previous evolutions, Chandelure reproduces asexually. After it consumes enough energy, the flames on its arms may bifurcate. Each flame forms a new Litwick. The Litwick then remains attached to the Chandelure until it can absorb energy, after which it detaches from its parent and lives separately.
Social StructureLitwick are solitary in the wild, as there feeding requires them to nurse on local Pokémon, contact outside of breeding usually leads to death. They have found a good hunting ground in the local Elgyem population as there significant Psyche energy provides quite a feast.
