Episode

The quantum lichen people are an intelligent race native to Bryoria 6, and are similar to Earth lichens in the sense that they are composed of two different beings, connected by "quantum entanglement". One is an attractive, algae based Id, while the other is a ravenous, mushroom-like Ego. QL's are attention parasites, and feed off the admiration of others. However, gazing at an Id's face, even in a photograph, will cause the observer's life force to be sucked out, which is then stored inside the QL's ego.
