CONFIDENTIAL REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF THE HIGH COUNCIL FROM: Micrahla Thorgan under the command of Danzuhal Dragnok. FILE #: 2967 PLANET OF CONQUEST: Earth, 3rd planet of solar system MS5 in Galaxy27 COUNCIL'S COMPLAINT: Failure to conquer Earth in the time allowed SUMMARY OF EVENTS Honored members of the High Council, we are sending you this report to explain why we haven't yet conquered Earth. As you may know, the war with our ancient enemies the Sarfnars is escalating. Every section of space we can take will help us defeat them. A few years back, our allies discovered a primitive space probe. On it was two metallic disks, with information on it about the alien species who made it. From what we found out, this species was obviously primitive, both physically and techlogincally.Also, at the same time our allies discovered another alien race about 4.3 light years away from the first. From the information we received the planet the alien race lived on was rich in natural resources that would finally push the war in our favor! But there was a problem. The planet was too far from the home world to attack directly, and we didn't have any bases of conquered planets in that galaxy. So then we looked at solar system MS5, where the primitive probe came from. It came from the third planet of the solar system which we found out was called "Earth" by the species living there called "Humans". From the available data it was decided that Earth was to be conquered by infiltration, until we can send out enough troops and weapons for a direct attack. So Dragnok and myself went to earth. By using the DNA bounding process,we were able to "blend" in with the humans. Dragnok and I took on the human names Michael Thorgan and Daniel Dragnok. We used our superior computer technology to steal millions of dollars from bank accounts. Once we had the money we formed an industrial company. Our work was unlike anything anyone seen before. Soon we became a well known company. During this time, we learnt everything we needed to know about the humans, their history, culture, technology, and physiology. We blended in so well that Dragnok and I were made members of a global wide secret human society and learnt even more. We did this all in eight Earth years. When troops finally began arriving Dragnok had to support them. Living expensives were too high. At that time business was slow. Dragnok was reduced to the level of stealing food. And that's when by an odd coincidence Dragnok ran into Chante, that half human female that cause us so many of our Tazis in the war. Her sudden appearance was shocking. We all believed that she died 15 years ago. Just about that same time, Dragnok fought a creature that looked just like a Sarfnar but smaller. At first we assumed that the Sarfnars came to earth, but our sensors didn't detect any Sarfnar ships. It turned out that the creature Dragnok fought was native to earth. The creature was a member of a sentient race know as Gargoyles. We didn't expect them to be a problem. But we were wrong. As we feared, Chante allied herself with these Gargoyles and they have been foiling our plans ever since. PROFILE DETAILS Chante's Militia mainly consist of eight "Gargoyles" and four humans. The Gargoyles don't live out in the open because they are feared by the humans. They reside with David Xanatos, a wealthy industrialist. It seems that the Gargoyles have other enemies besides us. This has often been used to our advantage. PHYSICAL EVALUATION The Gargoyles resemblance to the Sarfnars is too shocking to be a coincidence. From limited blood and DNA samples gathered from the Gargoyles during battles, tests were done. There were no other species on earth that came close to the physical make up of the Gargoyles. So I concluded that the Gargoyles werenít a native earth species. APPEARANCE: The Gargoyles height ranges from five to seven feet tall. They have appendages for flying that are attached to their backs at the shoulder blades, and are varied in appearance. The Gargoyles vary in color and size. They are bipedal and have four clawed digits on each hand, and three clawed toes on each foot with a back claw on the heel. The Gargoyles also have augmented ear lobes, canine teeth, and brow ridges. The Gargoyles have very little body hair except for the head and face. Some Gargoyles have no hair on them at all. WINGS: The flying appendages on the Gargoyles vary and design and appears to be based on body type and size. One appendage type seems to be modified digits with a thin membrane skin between them. Another type is like the wings of a Ahk back on the home world. The third is not really a wing but a membrane of skin attached between the arms and the upper thigh. I believe that this appendage type is rare and is mostly found on light framed Gargoyles. Even though the Gargoyles have wings, they canít truly fly. Their wings arenít strong enough to give their bodies enough lift from the ground, so they glide from high places. This proves to be a disadvantage for them when there arenít any strong updrafts. SKELETAL/MUSCULAR STRUCTURE: The Gargoyles are ten times stronger than the humans on earth. They have ability to claw through stone and iron alloy up to about 5 feet thick. Unlike most species on earth, I believe that the modified nails on the Gargoyles are ploy carbon silicone based instead of protein based. This letís the Gargoyles use their claws to climb more efficiently without having them breaking. The Gargoyles muscular strength is mainly used to help them climb up high places to jump off from for gliding and for operating the wing muscles once airborne. If the Gargoyles are not oringinally native to earth, their muscular strength might also be an evolutionary by product from living on a planet with high atomspheric pressures. This effect is commonly seen when you travel from a high pressured atomsphere to a low pressured one. You seem "stronger" because your musuclar system is adapted to the weight of living on a planet with a high pressure atomsphere. This also might explain why the Gargoyles can't fly. Their wing muscles might of grown weak from the lack of real usage. The physical demands from the muscles must cause the Gargoyles to consume about five times their weight in food a day. Measuring the available food resources, it would be impossible for the Gargoyles to survive. From information obtained through the secret society called the Illuminati, I found out that the Gargoyles turn to stone during the day. From this stone state the Gargoyles get the energy they need that they couldnít get from ingesting food alone. The Gargoyles are biquadpedzoids. They mostly walk on two legs but can walk on all fours when extra speed is needed. Like most biquads the Gargoyles have features of both bipeds and quadpeds. The Gargoyles have medium length legs, long feet with heels off the ground, and a tail for balance. There are a subspecies of Gargoyle that is beast like in nature and are totally quadpedal. SENSATORY SYSTEMS: The Gargoyles optic systems are strong in night vision, and depth perception. The Gargoyles are also slightly farsighted. This is to help them see objects far away when airborne. Like many nocturnal species, Gargoyles have a reflective membrane on the back of the eye. Sometimes this membrane glows and gives off itís own light. Iím not exactly sure how this glowing occurs, but I think itís linked to bioluminance, a process that I discovered in a few earth insect and aqua species. In certain deep ocean species they glow to blind would be predators. I think the reflective membrane in the Gargoyles eyes react to adrenaline, which might explain why their eyes glow mostly when they are angry, frightened, or in pain. The male Gargoyles eyes glow white or light blue while the females glow bright red. Why this is so is not understood. The Gargoyles Auricle systems can detect sounds three octaves higher and lower than humans. The Gargoyles outer ear is large and pointed, and has mobility. This helps them to funnel sounds towards the inner ear. Vocal- The vocal sounds the Gargoyles make range from normal talking to roaring. Gargoyle roaring is a result of the vocals being set at an sharper angle down towards the chest. When air is forcefully expelled through the chest and throat (such as in roaring or yawning), air rushing through the vocal cords causes mostly the chest and throat area to vibrate causing a deep rumbling sound (males), or a high pitched sound (females). This is impossible in humans since their vocal tracts are set higher than Gargoyles, causing sound vibrations to focus mainly in the upper chest, throat, and head area. Knowing the limits of the Olfactory sense of the Gargoyles has very little use to us. Their sense of smell might be just slightly above humans and might be used for detecting reproductive readiness of the females by the males. SKIN: The sensatory system of the Gargoyles might be on an average level. They have a thicker horny layer of skin which protects them from extreme cold temperatures. This might prove to be a disadvantage in humid hot weather. The Gargoyles can withstand electrolaser blasts up to level five and particle laser beam blasts up to level three before flesh burns are present. Knives and sharp weapons cause no cuts unless they are forcefully sliced into the skin. Weapons that fire high-velocity projectiles causes injury instantly. Gargoyle skin contains a alkaline based protein that is very similar to concrete. Gargoyle skin also contains a nitrate that reacts to sunlight. I think it is this protein chemical that causes the Gargoyles to turn to a stone like state in sunlight. This chemical is also present in their blood. During this stone state solar energy is stored, and all cuts, bruises, abrasions, and broken bones are healed. However if a body part is amputated, it canít grow back. If a Gargoyle receives a very deep cut, stone sleep will heal the cut but a scar might remain. During stone sleep, a Gargoyle is total helpless. Destroying a Gargoyleís vital body part (such as the head) will result in death. This vulnerability will be a great help to us later on. RECENT FINDINGS/ CONCLUSION: Dragnok and I recently discovered a cave that had ancient writings and drawing of ancient Gargoyles. They have a shocking resemblance to the ancient Gargnars, who are the ones who banished our ancestors to the barren planet that is now our home world all those hundreds of thousands of years ago. This was the discovery that confirmed my findings, that the Gargoyles were the ancient Gargnars. Chante and the Gargoyles took the stone slabs away from us that had some of the ancient writings on it. But fortunately, Photostatic copies were made. We will send these copies via computer download to the home world and hope that the scientist there can translate them. By now, Chante has told the Gargoyles about their origins. When the Gargoyles find out the truth, they will fiercely try to stop us. If the Sarfnars find out that their ancient ancestors survived they will rush to earth to defend it. Their protective nature requires them to do so. The Gargoyles have a lot of weaknesses that we can use to destroy them. But a lack of resources has prevent us to do so. All we need is more time and weapons and we will have earth.
