Darth Wiki / Travellers Universe

Go To

Traveller's Universe is a hypothetical fiction by Ironcommando featuring a reality-warping being known as the Traveller. As an observer, most of the work consists of its travels across time, space, and the multiverse as it meets up with rather strange and varied lifeforms and other beings.

Later on, the Traveller finds out secrets that even itself doesn't know about.

Tropes present in the work:

  • Invincible Hero: Traveller is pretty invincible and a reality warper... however, its main objective is to observe without too much interference, and he would rather make allies with the beings it encounters. Having a human-like way of thinking also doesn't help communications with the aliens.
  • The Reveal: Two of them:
      Advertisement:
    • The first is that Traveller isn't the only one of its kind
    • The second is that Traveller used to be a human that ended up in a place beyond reality, and in order to save him, he was made into what he is now.
  • Sliding Scale of Seriousness Versus Silliness: Skirts it all over the place. We've got a being that destroys stars as its written language, and is doing so because... he needs to write an essay.
  • Starfish Aliens: Several of the beings that Traveller meets are weird-looking aliens. Traveller itself is also one.

Characters

    Traveller 
The protagonist. A being from a realm beyond existence itself, it's tasked to gather information and behaviour of entities around the multiverse.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: As its main directive is to observe and communicate, but not use violence unless reality or its own existence is threatened, it will mainly watch most of the time. It is allowed to occasionally use powers if it can prevent a very large scale threat, however. Also, it can play relatively harmless "pranks" with its powers.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The body is completely invulnerable, but one can hurt it by attacking its vulnerable "parts" which are an extension of it.
  • Chrome Champion: Its visible form resembles an entirely chrome spaceship. Its avatar is also entirely chrome save for the hair. And like the trope, it is an extremely powerful being.
  • Cosmic Entity: Has powers that can affect stars, galaxies, and even up to universes. It rarely uses those, only as a last resort, however, as it is not keen on doing high scale damage due to its primary motive being "watch the universes".
  • Dimensional Traveller: Like its name suggests, this is what it does. It gets to look at and see lots of different sights and sounds, and even interact with higher beings.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: It IS thankfully pacifistic in nature, but continue to annoy it despite repeated warnings and it will remove the restriction on obliterating you.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Its full form and actual nature is completely incomprehensible as one almost never gets to see its full set of "parts", that include warped space and other Eldritch Abominations as extensions of itself.
  • Eldritch Starship: It resembles a rather plain chrome starship, but once observed under very special observation devices, unimaginable horrors such as an entire dimension, another Eldritch Abomination, or Alien Geometry will be seen. All those are part of the spaceship.
  • Glamour Failure: Its main ability and oddity consists of "parts" visible only under certain mediums.
  • Immune to Mind Control: Save your Compelling Voice, Emotion Control or Brainwashing, for its alien "mind" prevents it from being mentally affected.
  • It Amused Me: Will sometimes play "jokes" for its own amusement. Examples are showing up randomly one day in somebody's mecha/airplane hangar.
  • Martial Pacifist: Will attempt to avoid any fights. If provoked, however... cue a fight against a near-infinite being.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: If viewed in a mirror, it is shown to have some eldritch Combat Tentacles.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: The main body cannot be harmed by any means. Its parts, however, can be attacked and damaged, but only if the opponent can perceive them.
  • No Name Given: Doesn't have a full name, and refers to itself as a Traveller.
  • Obstructive Code of Conduct: Not allowed to use its "parts" (weaponry) to directly harm those that are not a threat to it or reality. Provoking it enough does count as a threat. Also, it's free to use its parts and abilities to inform, and if somebody willingly wants to test their powers against it, it's free to remove the restrictions.
  • Omniglot: Can understand all languages. When it talks, it transfers the meaning of its words, not the words themselves, therefore autotranslating it in the receivers' minds.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: While its main body floats in one place without dodging thanks to Nigh-Invulnerability, its extensions are what comes to attack the opponent.
  • Reality Warper: Several of its stronger "parts" can affect existence and reality. It does not use then unless extremely threatened.
  • Seen It All: Due to having encountered bizarre entities (such as beings that explode stars to communicate) and strange events, it's pretty unfazed by most things, although it does get intrigued quite easily.
  • Shiny-Looking Spaceships: It resembles an entirely chrome spaceship in its "base" form.
  • Starfish Aliens: An extradimensional entity that resembles a chrome ship, has a strange form of communication, an an even weirder actual form, etc.
  • Terse Talker: Speaks in brief. Can choose to speak normally, though.
  • Time Abyss: Its age is unknown, but it has existed for an extremely long period of time.
  • Walking the Earth: What it does, only that the multiverse and time/space/alternate realities are the "Earth" in question.
  • The Watcher: Its main purpose it to dimension hop and observe what goes on. It is allowed to interact with people via communication, though.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Each of its different "forms"/"parts" can only be seen via a different medium. Since the multiverse houses pretty much infinite different beings that have infinitely different ways of visualizing objects... it essentially has infinite forms, and its "true" form would be all the parts being visible at once.

    GERB 
A pal of Traveller who became friends after Traveller helped him with his homework. He talks by creating stars and writes by causing stars to explode.
  • Celestial Body: He's made of star-like energy.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A rather incomprehensible being (not much mention on his "biology") that produces stars when talking and causes supernovae when writing.
  • Energy Being: Made of star-like matter.
  • Meaningful Name: He's named after GRB, aka Gamma Ray Bursts. Those are created whenever a star goes supernova, which he is able to do.

    "Blue Blobs" 
Little blue blob aliens. These make their own scenery and structures- as in, they conglomerate together to form them. They take turns being structures/citizens.
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: These things reproduce by "seeing" a dodecahedron. Since Traveller has a dodecahedral "mesh" around itself when detected via sound-based means, this makes things very awkward when he unknowingly causes the blobs to reproduce.
  • Bizarre Alien Senses: It uses a form of echolocation to "see" things.
  • Blob Monster: Rather gelatinous beings that are sentient.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Even Traveller thinks that their small size and round shape makes them cute.
