this was the name given to the immature, mobile phase in the life of an oasis mother, a carnivorous organism that was native to the planet Endregaad. Each oasis child was created in a large, fruit-like sac that grew from the branches of the oasis mother. The oasis children were important to the oasis mother because they were mobile enough to capture live prey and return to the oasis mother before it died, supplying it with warm blood and dying flesh. The oasis children tended to be noctural, hunting at night when many creatures were asleep and easier to capture. An oasis child resembled an ape-shaped lump of plant material, with long arms and muscular legs that appeared to be made from reeds and sticks. The average oasis child lived for just a few weeks, and never ate. Its entire existence was dedicated to obtaining food for its oasis mother, to which it was linked telepathically.
