For a Challenge with the theme of "A Space Tragedy"
Lirea float there, the last of her Breath vanishing intot he void around her. "This is ok," She thought. "I'm okay." Her vision blurs as the color of the glow of The Core matched her own, a rich Northwestern Purple, a color she soon the only thing she saw. "I'll be back..." She thought, knowing the damage. "It'll take a while..." She moved the Core close to her chest using the last of her energy to move the only limbs she had control of. "Either I Die making sure no one else gets the Core...or...I'll....be..." Her mind went blank as she finally lost consciousness, the last the she left, sharp, wriggling spines come out og her spine and reach for the thing she protected.
Lore Wise Lirea is a version of humans from thousands of years in the future, they find a material that her race only called "The metal" It's a Parasitic material from another dimension that will keep the host alive and give them superhuman like abilites, but the more of their body they lose the metal makes it and the host loses their mind. Her race found that this material has insane power so they use it as a power source for anything. They also replace one part of their body with the material, not knowing what will happen, Lirea Chose her spine.
Lirea's race does everything with grace, speed and precision. She got tired of anything and ran away. She stole a Ship and few away from her Planet, not know how to pilot the machine she crashes, knowing the damage she risks herself to take the core out of the ship, which is also a piece of The Metal, while trying to get to a safe place she has her torso severed her metal spine staying in place. As she passed out her own metal spine and the metal of the ships core combining rebuilding her torso also any and all organ that were lost.
