Luma Mordos are shark-like creatures. They can be obtained as a quest reward or purchased from the Genome Splicer. Lore-wise, they were discovered by the player character and Iris Evada in the "You realize that you haven't checked your messages in a while..." quest line.

Capsule[]

"Soft prongs extend from the top of this shimmering capsule."

Young[]

"Small patches of this juvenile’s rough skin give off a faint luminescence. It attracts larger zooplankton, which make up the bulk of the juvenile’s diet. The juvenile will sometimes approach other juveniles of the same species, drawn by their soft glow, but they are quick to fight over food sources and rarely remain near each other for long."

Adult[]

"The extreme dimorphism of Luma Mordos is possibly a result of their deep-sea habitat, where food is scarce and predators must be strong to survive. Large and muscular in build, female Luma Mordos are extremely territorial and will allow only males to enter their domain. Males use their jaws to attach to their mate when not hunting to avoid being separated from her; older females often carry several mates around. Their soft luminescence is created by a symbiotic relationship with bioluminescent bacteria and used to attract prey. Females are capable of hunting much larger prey than the much smaller males, and when their quarry draws close enough, they will lunge forward with a burst of speed to catch it in their powerful jaws. They can be quite fast when the need arises, though most of the time they move slowly to conserve energy. Males are swifter and more agile, and they will fight amongst themselves over scraps from a female’s kill."

Trivia[]

  • TFO uses Esperanto as a basis for creature names (although it's not always exact—accents are ignored and spellings occasionally shift). “Luma Mordo” means “Light Bite.”
