Calliope Caliborn
智天使(cherub)是獨居的宇宙生物,在這一頁Sburb Logo第一次介紹這個生物的概念,然後在這一頁Sburb Logo較詳細地解說。目前已知的智天使有Calliope平行世界的CalliopeCalibornLOrd English(技術上來說,他們全是同一個物理上的個體)、還有Calliope和Caliborn的父母。智天使是唯一已知Sburb玩家內(大概也包括fedorafreak(軟呢帽怪人) 在內)沒有悖論克隆的角色。

除了出現在Homestuck以外,智天使也通過智天使傳送門間接參與了Hiveswap/Hauntswitch的劇情。

生態编辑

智天使是存在於宇宙 中擁有智能和自我意識的非陸地生命形式。他們同時是獵食者(像大鱷)和生產者(像植物),他們能在成長過程中在行星上食用肉類維持生命,而在成年後以太陽能作為能量來源。他們的身體構造具有星際旅行的能力,可能比光速還快 ,因為光平均得用數年的時間才能在星系之間來去;這表示他們可能有類似troll 的靈能力(Calliope曾說道她「可能」有萊姆血的能力)。雖然他們的智能(語言、創造力、有限的同理心、文化的發明)能讓他們發展為社會性生物,但因他們的分裂人格意識的性質,他們是極度非社會性的物種。

每個智天使的體內都有兩個獨特且對立的人格,性別也不同,每個人格只會在另一個人格沉睡時出現。因為如此,智天使乍看從不睡覺,除了切換人格的短暫時間。每個人格都有各自分隔的意識和記憶,除了在清醒時留下訊息外無法與另一個人格交流。這兩個人格在智天使孵化後馬上就會浮現。注意的是,人格的切換會影響智天使的血色、瞳色、舌頭的顏色和他們臉頰上漩渦的顏色。

孵化後的Calliope和Caliborn

一旦孵化Sburb Logo,智天使會呈現一個類似擁有骷髏頭的綠蛇、且有紅綠色異色瞳和紅綠色異色頰渦(兩者形狀相對)和黑白相間條文的舌頭的型態。在這段期間兩個人格可能同時處在清醒狀態。在孵化後,含糖的蛋殼就會為了攝取營養而立刻被消費掉。在第一餐後,智天使的人格就會分裂成完全不同的兩辦。這也是當他們變成人形的時候。即使是嬰兒時期,智天使也會呈現他們的不同人格,比如說:Calliope是開朗友善的Sburb Logo,而Caliborn則是個令人難以忍受的小子Sburb Logo

智天使擁有綠色皮膚的人形身體與骷髏似的頭顱,和臉頰上與血色相同的漩渦圖案,還有與troll類似的眼下深色區塊。他們的嘴是可伸縮的,能夠很快地拉開嘴並露出強大的下顎,但也能平常地微笑、說話、甚至把東西吐掉Sburb Logo。他們同時也擁有輕巧的爪狀手、尖牙和會隨著不同人格控制而呈現不同Sburb Logo顏色Sburb Logo的分岔的舌頭。Hussie提到Sburb Logo青少年智天使擁有外骨骼結構,但在漫畫中所有成年智天使都有明確的Sburb Logo肌肉線條Sburb Logo的描寫Sburb Logo。這可能是因為在成長過程中他們從外骨骼逐漸轉變為內骨骼,或只是變得更能伸縮,或是細分成更多段以容納成人的肌肉。在時刻到來之前,兩個人格在生理上的區別只有他們臉頰上互補的漩渦(和舌頭與眼睛的顏色,但這些並沒有被Aranea提到Sburb Logo,但角色原型是Caliborn和Calliope)。在某一方人格佔主導位置之前,我們無法分辨智天使男女之間的生理差異。


While Calliope suggested thatSburb Logo her circumstances with Caliborn were unique, the narrative prompt suggestsSburb Logo that being born with split personalities is typical of cherubs, with one personality winning out and dominating the entire body once the cherub has achieved maturity. Instead of waiting for their body to mature naturally, Caliborn had Calliope's dream self killed, which in turn killed off her personality in her and Caliborn's shared body, resulting in a premature predomination. However, as a consequence of this "unnatural" development, Caliborn was doomed to being stunted emotionally for the rest of his life. It remains unclear whether Calliope may have been referring to other circumstances, such as the fact that they were to play Sburb at all.

When one of the personalities predominates, the cheek swirls fill out into circles, as seen with Caliborn. Fully matured cherubs also possess large feathered wings resembling the Hope symbol. It would appear adult benevolent cherubs have large white wings while malevolent ones have similarly shaped black colored wings. Males are also larger and more muscular than females. Cherubs who do not mature properly lack wings, explaining why LOrd English does not have them.

The alignments of a cherub's two halves depend both on the alignments of its parents and which parent lays the egg. If the male lays the egg, the child will match, by gender, its parents' alignments. This was the case with Calliope and Caliborn, Calliope inheriting her mother's benevolence and Caliborn inheriting his father's malevolence. However, if the mother lays the egg, the alignments by gender are reversed. An alternative way of looking at it is that the male half of the cherub inherits the alignment of the losing parent, whilst the female inherits the alignment of the victorious parent.
