Because I can be.
Who cares the universe is READY!!!
Well, there's the thoughtful one, now where's shades?
I think the icon fits you. Do you think it fits you?
Mocking. The only thing that fits Zeskorion's profile picture would be some sort of creature of pure hatred and darkness.
So, a Penguin?
Contemplative. That is an excellent option.
look, i may have a dark side, but i am not just one side
Freshest bird in town

That's seven. One more?! What the heck
Extremely adorable. And extremely ready.
You've all been invited to attend a banquet in an out-of-the-way stellar system, and for some reason or other, have accepted the invitation. Perhaps it's because you know Cricket, the civilized Floran who sent the invitation. Perhaps you thought it would be an adventure. Perhaps you know who Cricket associates with, and have come here to stop them once and for all...
But in any case, you're here now. The Glitch-inspired dining room is smaller than in a Glitch castle, but hardly less impressive. In the middle of one wall is a fireplace, filled with a roaring fire, and in the center of the room stands a long table covered in a sumptuous array of foods.
A small Floran hungrily tears into a roast chicken, while the young Hylotl eyes them nervously, yet still manages to eat with the precise grace characteristic of their race. A teal-colored Glitch converses with a tall, commanding Apex in between bites. Another Floran, this one covered in tribal markings, casually surveys the room, cutting up their food and eating without even looking down at their plate. The blonde Human sitting next to them is awed. The Novakid doesn't seem to know which fork to use, and leans over to ask the Avian beside them. The Avian doesn't know either, so the Novakid just shrugs and starts eating with their hands. A short and rather heavy Glitch takes a second helping of stuffed automatoes. The small Human and the short Apex, on the other hand, don't seem to be very hungry. They exchange glances every so often, but mostly stare at the double doors at the far end of the room. Where is Cricket? they wonder. So do most everyone else, but these two wonder most anxiously.
Finally, the question is answered. The large wooden doors swing open, and in walks a tall, reed-thin figure, made imposing by the three armored guards behind them.
"Welcome, friends... and enemies." The Floran's voice has only the slightest hint of a hiss. "You may have an idea of why I've gathered you here-"
"Actually, I don't know at all!" the Novakid interjects. The Hylotl snickers quietly at this interruption.
"...or you may not. Whatever the case may be, I will tell you now, straight out. You are here to play a game."
"Oh, no..." someone mutters.
"Yes, that game. The game my dear friend Berrybane refers to as The Penguin Games. I see you've heard of it? Perhaps from that Apex Berrybane allowed to escape?" Cricket smiles darkly. "Oh yes, and that brings me to my announcement: Three of you - yes, the people gathered in this room - are Penguins. Only three. But due to the specific combinations of people I've chosen, it may not be a simple matter to figure out who they are. You may find your new acquaintances helpful. Or you may find them traitors. Good luck." With that, Cricket stands up and turns to leave.
A knife, thrown from the table, barely misses the Floran's head.
"How rude." They turn back around and fold their arms. "Killing me will not change the task you have to perform. In fact, it will make it more difficult for you, as Berrybane will have to take over for me. And Berrybane, you know, shows far less mercy than I." This time, the Floran is allowed to leave unmolested. The air in the room has drastically changed. Even those who were talking and eating freely before suddenly find themselves without an appetite. The small Floran is the only one who seems unconcerned, having finished their portion of meat and moved on to eating the garnish.
The second Penguin Games has begun.
