"Long into the future during the Chromarchaic Era. Year 9202. The story of QUASAR’S QUEST begins on Drackylvania, the 4th moon orbiting Galvandia West in the Galvandian System. On Drackylvania, a coniferous swamp land home to many highly evolved amphibians, birds, and thousands of insane insects, the salamanders are working their way up the food chain. 

-- QUASAR - a member of a highly evolved future Red Eft species, 
a.k.a. Red Spotted Newt (Salamander fam.) 
Latin scientific: Fotophthalmus Viridescens. 

  This super amphibian has adapted the ability to transform to and from its natural 2nd and 3rd life stages for proficient terrestrial and aquatic abilities. As well as evolving a color shifting aposematism with a dual lattice of guanine crystal cell iridophores buried in their skin like a chameleon which also provides as a thermal dermis blanket reflecting infrared energy. Internally they also possess an enhanced magnetoception radar, where he can tap into magnetic fields within 80 meters and pin point other organisms in that range along with a biogenic magnetite conductor fueling a polarity compass no longer needing to be charged by a sun, moonlight is viable too. They’ve developed a tetrodotoxin system bearing venomous fangs and the ability to shoot venom like a cobra. The extremely toxic neurotoxin TTX2, is a hybrid of acid and TTX. TTX interrupts the transmissions sent between the body and the brain by blocking fast voltage-gated sodium channels causing voluntary muscle paralyses. TTX2 when spit from the mouth also reacts as an advanced hydrofluoric acid causing instant disintegration of the perpetrator or structure at hand. Not a salamander you want to mess with. 
  These little dinos’ can also teleport. Yea, teleport. It must have something to do with their intense magnetic reception, there is not much information available on the science behind the phenomenon. Quasar transfers through Kragmatic Portals (a stable type of black hole) swirling across the universe into uncharted glowing galaxies. Being the only “Kragmatic traveler” on record, it is unknown if Quasar is the only one that can see a portal open, or if he creates them with his mind......"
