The Gormlets are peacable, and quite easily alarmed. They are benevolent, but not very sensible. You could describe them as gormless.
They have no gender or sex, but sometimes they like each other and form bonds. No one knows how they tell the difference between one another, or what it is they like. Sometimes they harangue one another, but no-one knows what about. They reproduce memetically, by enticing humans to make more of them, adapted to all sorts of environments.
I call them Gormlets after Anthony Gormley, who caused the largest number of them ever to be made and assembled in one place. They existed before in various forms, which you can see in the British Museum, but not in such large numbers. No-one has any idea what they call themselves, or even whether they think it’s necessary to have names.
