Ancestor:Descendants:

After the gamma ray disaster the deserts of Ittiz-Ovi were left almost lifeless with no fauna in the massive rusty red sands. This caused the thistleberry serious trouble, as its reproduction method of berries was dependent almost solely on the plents and other creatures that spread its seeds around. Therefore, in the harsh environment of the lonely desert the lonely thistleberry evolved and was replaced into a less defensive more widespread and reproductive plant, the lightberry. As well as the great amounts of powder the light berry produces from The lightberry has hundreds of tiny ‘winged' berries that can easily be spread by powerful winds that detach a few berries at a time. Each of these tiny berries has a larger wing and a smaller one, for wind oriented flight and better spread due to glide spinning. In order to survive the hard desert heat with optimal conditions as young sprouts the berry already contain an array of early leaves hidden inside as well as their ‘wings' that are able to use photosynthesis quite early though very few nutrients like others seeds, and a unique biochemical system of soaking humidity from the air that dies out when it grows older. The lightberry is also much less spiky than its ancestor and has leaves that widen at their ends.
