KDE has a whole bunch of what they call dragons, but which are clearly Bitkin (and there's no reason they can't be both).

@dodec (wait what's a bitkin do you mean to tell me there's more of this type of creature i want)


Bitkin are my name for a certain type of computer-resident life form. They're the ones running everything behind the scenes - you can think of them as the stage crew. They can technically be any shape, but most often they show up as brightly-colored, a little abstract (i.e. "realistic" only in the same way mascots like Konqi are), and sometimes fused with inanimate objects like Fala's umbrella-tail or Blitz's chest-mounted dynamo.

Here's one of them in a recent story.
