During a dive off the coast of Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia, photographer Sergio Sarta was scanning a volcanic, dark grey, sandy seabed when he saw a bright-colored organism—a fire urchin with a pair of tiny Coleman shrimps. The fire urchin has quills that are very toxic to humans, and the shrimps avoid this danger by seeking out safe areas between the quills.
is one of my newest characters created for a tabletop campaign that is
still in its early stages. His name is Lyari Rilynzea, and he is/was an
eladrin/high-elf who survived the murder of his parents, and his
subsequent capture by a Hag when he was still a small child. He escaped,
still bearing a mark from the ordeal, and ended up in a human city.
There, he found shelter with a band of urchins, and he’s since become
quite a little thief. He is very magically inclined, but doesn’t have
much control over it, and his behavior is much more like that of a human
than an elf. He’s not exactly popular with the authorities.
also referred to as Shingle Urchins are a a species of sea urchin of the family Echinometridae. they can be found on rocks nears shores of the Indo-West Pacific particularly in Hawaii. they look very different from other sea urchins as their spines have been modified to be flattened and smooth in order to better withstand the waves that crash against the rocks they live on in order to feed on periwinkles and algae. they are usually a maroon color and grow as big as a softball.
