History

Not much is known at this time about the Lyenn before their use as Enforcers by O.L.A.H.. There is a theory among the Resistance that the Lyenn and Lyennfich could have come from an uncharted world, discovered by O.L.A.H. and used as an army.

Biology

Lyenn and Lyennfich make up what are commonly referred to as Enforcers, as most Lyenn seen around Omneutta travel with a Lyennfich, shown below. Only Lyenn by may be referred to as Enforcers by themselves, as many who have seen the armoured Lyenn will do.

The two species are closely related, both being covered in hard chitin, with some soft tissue exposed–on the Lyenn this is seen in their lower legs and arms and on the Lyennfich’s underbelly. The species seem to have a mutually beneficial symbiosis as unarmoured Lyenn are almost exclusively seen with a Lyennfich which are in turn exclusively seen with unarmoured Lyenn. It seems as though Lyennfich need Lyenn to survive, as their heads cannot reach the ground to adequately feed themselves and thus depend on the biped species for food.

Combat

Lyenn whose wings and arms have not been docked are used for combat. Their longer upper arms can grow hard-chitin weapons and shields, or use the same proboscis-like limb to fling small bits of material as a form of ranged weaponry. Since they can adequately fly and defend themselves these Lyenn are never seen with Lyennfich of their own, and it seems they are not part of a pairing.

Lyenn are used as a police and military force throughout Omneutta beginning sometime in the late 700s or early 800s, A.T. Their use as a police force is limited to both space and land patrols, often in areas designated by OLAH as needing ‘protection’ from those who break the law, or areas that have recently seen a large crime. Enforcers can sometimes accompany Delegates to their meetings with Omneuttians.
As a military force, they usually have three forms of appearance, each armoured.
