Quotes and philosophies:
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." - Matthew 7:1-5

"The Unit’ans (Unit’an for ‘Masters of life’ or ‘Masters of light’) are an ancient race of sentient humanoid androids, with deific powers that can be found throughout the multiverse. Three hundred and fifty thousand Human years ago, the Voxtru created the Unit’ans as their servants and later their successors; their purpose within the multiverse is unknown as the Voxtru mysteriously vanished without an explanation. Many believe they are the embodiment of either the Voxtru, life itself or both and that they have been sent to watch the multiverse to the end of time. They live stoically and autonomously in the background and are never involved in any affairs, unless it affects the balance of the Multiverse itself. They are known to be silent, enigmatic, perpetual, observant and above all, inquisitive.</i>
Unit’ans are, on average 2.00 meters tall, with smooth, polished white bodies. Their large, round, tear shaped heads are glossy white with a smooth, sky blue flame outline around their ‘faces’ and royal blue, angular glowing eyes. All their limbs are cone shaped that end in narrowed points, including their four fingers that revolve around the end of their forearm. They do not have feet and all their joints are magnetic and do not touch each other. They wear long black tunics (looks like a cassock) with a high collar that cover up everything from their necks to their ‘feet’, the sleeves are open ended, draping over the arms and in towards the torso. They all have a glowing ‘crown of light’ slowly rotating around the top half of their heads. Most of the time they are seen levitating up to half a foot off the ground. This coupled with their height and alien appearance can create a fearsome sight to those who are unaccustomed, especially when they can suddenly appear in an immense flash of blinding white light."
When I get my tablet up and running again, I will draw a pretty picture of these guys. I already have some awesome thumbnails in my head and scribbled on lined paper, which I drew while I was at work.
Tell me what you think, feel free to pick at meh English.
