Once upon a time there was a golden planet. It was full of resources and populated by a highly advanced species called the Logors. They had technology beyond your wildest dreams and were capable of just about anything.
Although their technological advances were great and their intellect had reached amazing feats, they had evolved to be extremely lazy. Their bodies had become so weak that they relied solely on their technology for survival.
The Logors greatest weakness was their constant ambition and continuous search for improvement. No matter how advanced or intelligent they became they always seemed to want more.
One day in fact they reached a point in which they were no longer able to sustain their way of life because their bodies had grown so weak and lazy that their species had begun
to die out.
Their only chance of survival was now to find ways to modify their genetic code and possibly take a few steps back in their own development to a previous time where their bodies were still healthy.
They were the only inhabitants of their planet so reworking their own genes seemed to do them little to no good, as they couldn't discover the cure to this unexpected cellular decay.
As a way to speed up their research they chose to scan the galaxy for other planets that had gold as part of the planetary structure. Their technology relied heavily on it and traveling to planets where the material was present made it easier for the Logors to return to their own afterwards.
They had discovered one planet that was rich in both gold and wild life and could turn out to be a real miracle in prolonging the existence of their species.
The Logors sent two of their most advanced spaceships to explore the jade planet.
Jade planet was a magnificent one. The biggest difference between the two was that Jade planet was inhabited by an enormous quantity of species unlike gold planet where the Logors were on their own.
Thor and a few of his people landed on jade planet where they came across one species that was particularly interesting. Unlike the other less developed species living on planet jade they seemed to have a slightly more complex language and the ability to depict simplistic stories on cave walls by using rudimentary paint.
Thor had also noticed that these creatures were extremely curious about shiny objects and since one of them had stolen his golden coins and keys to his space ship he decided that he should call them Monkeys hence deriving from this first troublesome encounter.
It just seemed ironically appropriate ( Mon from Money and Key from the word Key).
Thor also noticed that the creatures from this particular planet reproduced very differently then on Gold planet.
In fact the Logors were a hybrid species one that required only light and water to sustain their life. The light would be absorbed directly through their skin similarly to how plants do on earth and water could be assimilated in much the same way or by simply drinking.
Their bodies were also able to absorb other forms of energy or chemicals that could be converted into energy such as carbon dioxide and fossil fuel.
When they came of age they were able to reproduce simply by holding hands with the opposite sex and planting their other free hand into the soil.
From female hands a seed would form, which then would grow into a child.
The child could also be grown directly in water however it was often safer to grow children under ground for better protection since they were highly vulnerable for the first couple of weeks until they reached their adult form.
This process could only happen once in a lifespan of a Logor and it always produced 1 healthy offspring per couple.
