The Galvan are a species of small bipedal frog-like amphibians.

Galvan are about five inches tall on average. Their bodies consist of soft and flexible bones, allowing them to squeeze into tight spaces or quickly escape from danger.

The Galvan have large, bulbous, green eyes with thin lines for pupils. Unlike humans, Galvan eyelids close horizontally and from both sides of the eye. Galvan from Dimension 23 have blue eyes.

Infant Galvan look like tadpoles; they have tails and lack legs, but they grow legs and shed their tails at a time they call "wisdom feet."[1]

Female Galvan grow thin tendrils on their head. Male Galvan don't until they are adults.

History

The Galvan originally had no empire to speak of, instead they were being first kept as pets and then employed by other species as industrial technicians, spies, and saboteurs once their intelligence became known.

The Galvan were smart enough to keep the best secrets for themselves, eventually amassing enough knowledge to build a powerful empire of their own, based on the technology that they kept from the rest of the universe.

According to Professor Paradox, most of the Galvan are known as technological geniuses.

Powers and Abilities

The Galvan are naturally extremely intelligent, and can enter complex machines and operate them from the inside. This allows them to understand and operate virtually any machine, even if they've never seen it before. Their intelligence also allows them to understand intricate codes and languages.

When the situation requires it, the Galvan are able to jury-rig or improvise weapons and emergency repairs, using whatever materials that they have on hand, (ie: loose change, belt buckles, shoelaces, etc).

With the microscopic pads that cover their bodies, the Galvan can stick to almost any surface. Their slime makes them equally difficult to grab.

Not built for combat, the Galvan can evade and outsmart their enemies, rather than fight them head on.

The Galvan have extremely long life-spans, with Azmuth himself already several thousand years old.

The Galvan have teeth sharp enough to produce a painful bite.

Similar to frogs, the Galvan have long sticky tongues (first shown in Evil's Encore), which they use to capture insects for food.

According to Derrick J. Wyatt, the Galvan have gills and are amphibious.[2]

According to Max and Rook, the Galvan possess a pre-brain, which handles basic bodily functions, much like the medulla oblongata does for the human brain. However, this pre-brain is simplistic and childish. As quoted by Max, it makes Blukic and Driba look like geniuses in comparison.

Diet

The Galvan are insectivores.[3] This is proven in Blukic and Driba Go to Mr. Smoothy's when Blukic and Driba's desired smoothies are grasshopper-flavored. Further proof was when Blukic eats one of Dr. Animo's bugs in Evil's Encore.

Azmuth also has a liking for smoothies, as seen in War of the Worlds: Part 1.

Technology

The Galvan are the creators of much of the great technology and made many discoveries in the universe, such as:

Appearance

Evolved Galvan have huge heads, with their brain pushing outwards, they have noticeably small arms and legs, and as such require a hovercraft just to move and support their head.

Evolved Galvan have a third eye in the middle of their head. Like normal Galvan, evolved Galvan eyelids close horizontally and from both sides of the eye.

Only a male evolved Galvan has been seen, so it's unknown what female evolved Galvan look like.

Powers and Abilities

Evolved Galvan can fire a powerful energy beam from their middle eye.

Like regular Galvan, evolved Galvan have sharp teeth.

Evolved Galvan can predict multiple scenarios and plan for each one.
