Are Kraata organic?

Are Kraata somehow organic? If they are, does anyone have a source on it? Also, do we have a source on the statement that only Kraata with a rare "strain of genetic material" evolve into Shadow Kraata? - in which case I think it's fair to say they are organic. Or maybe partly organic? They don't seem biomechanical, at least. ----Lukas Exemplar (talk) 01:42, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

They're certainly described as being like worms and slugs (Journey's End page 38 for an easy example), so that's the assumption I'd go with--though off the top of my head I don't know of any source that expressly confirms that they're organic. Can't speak to the Shadow Kraata, though. --Gonel (talk) 02:17, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Well, they're made directly from the Makuta's essence (whatever that means), so I would assume so. --ToaOfGallifrey

Alrighty, so, Kraata, like Krana, are fully organic. With regards to genetics, it appears that he doesn't mean DNA in the sense that some accidentally did (pushing back on that idea several times sharply). Despite this, he maintains here that turning out a Shadow Kraata is like a genetic mutation or a process of random selection (though he shoots down a different discussion on genetics ten posts earlier). But here here expressly calls it a genetic mutation.

A larger question is, of course, if everything is made out of protodermis, what constitutes "organic"? What are the birds on Spherus Magna made out of, carbon? Does that mean Kraata are also carbon? (feel free to substitute carbon with whatever). They're essentially condensed energy, so while there is organic Protodermis (the tissue connecting the parts), does this meet that same criteria? -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:24, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
