Space life, whether it is plants, animals, or creatures with the Image of God, are called Corh. It can be pronounced Cor (some people in Iniel do), but the way I pronounce "rh" is like an H with the tongue in the R position, without a trill.

There are dragons that are Corh, but I have not developed them enough to post yet.

The most developed are the Cun: I have these threads about them:

Is Corh a race, then? And you mention plants, animals, and creatures with the image of God. Are those creatures much like humans, or are they very different?

Thank you for your question Ivan L. Holt!(...L. Holt, you Spanish?)

Here is a quote from the introduction thread, and a link to it:
http://www.holyworlds.org/fantasy/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=4781

Quote:
The many different races bearing the Image of God are divided into five Orders.

1
Human:
In the Human Order there is only one race, and it is identical to Adams race. But in Iniel the term human only applies to a man that is not of any of the other races.

2
Superman:
A race of Supermen is a race of men with something added or altered; a Superman means a man beyond man.

As examples of Superman races, there are headless men, men with horses heads, men with wings, men with one spiders eye between their eyes, men with hands that are backwards on their wrists, and so on.

3
Gnome:
A race of Gnomes is a race that can have forms of lesser substance, meaning they could disappear, or be indistinct, or be little more than thought.

Or, instead of having lesser substance, they could have a visible form that disagrees with their tangible form. I have only known George Macdonald to use this: in The Princess and Curdie, Curdie is given the power to tell, by feeling a persons hand, what sort of animal that person is at heart (and which he will eventually become): when he feels their hands he feels part of whatever animal they are tending towards, though their hand does not look any different.

4
Shapeshifter:
A Shapeshifter race has a Human, Superman, or Gnome form, but can change into at least one other form, which can be practically anything.

Even if some one could have been able to shapeshift, but was disabled, he would still be a Shapeshifter, just as a person may be lame and yet still be human. And if some one gains the ability to shapeshift, but does not inherit the ability from his ancestors, he is not a Shapeshifter.

5
Image:
In Iniel it is difficult to make a picture of anything, especially of animals, and more especially of men. Any of the more lifelike images of people can potentially become alive, though not necessarily able to move. And more simple pictures, such as pictographs, can have a lesser kind of power.


These are the basic categories, I will go into the subcategories in other threads: keep a look out for them.


Corh is more of a category of creatures based on their environment: the Voids: Space. Anything that lives in space is Corh.

Other than dragon like creatures or cun like creatures I do not have any definite ideas for creatures that live in the Voids. Have you seen creatures of outer space used in other stories?

Haha! No, I am not Spanish. The name actually comes from an old Methodist preacher.

The clarification helps. I really have not seen space dwelling creatures in fantasy stories. Would be cool to see how it plays out!

There's the eldila in Lewis's Space Trilogy ... (though they're more "creatures of everywhere but Earth" than "creatures of outer space", admittedly.)

If I remember correctly the Eldila inspired me for multiple things, and part of their description might have inspired me about the cun, but I never really thought of them as space dwellers, though of course now that you mention it I suppose they are. Can you think of any others?

The only others I can think of are the quaddies in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga (which is science fiction), but they're not creatures of <em>vacuum</em> so much as creatures designed for free-fall (no gravity) but pressurized environments. And Larry Niven had a short story called "The Integral Trees" (which I've had described to me in some detail, a while ago, but haven't read) that apparently describes a full ecosystem in orbit.
