The mason trispourous split from its ancestor, the hitchhiker hexspourus. As life arrived on Mason on an orbital voltflora seed, only a few forms of life were present. The empty niches, along with increased levels of radiation, led to a "Oathinian Explosion", with many new evolutions of the original hitchhiker organisms. The trisphourous is unicellular, and lives wherever its prey, the mason gildling, does. Like its ancestor, it uses its chemoreceptors to find its food, propelling itself with flagellum and the microscopic cilia that cover its body.
