Gabe's Feather-0

This plant grows almost exclusively in deeper waters, where its hand-like leaves have evolved to filter sediment from the environment. It is likely dependent on the excretions of fauna populating the waters above and around it.



  • The Gabe's Feather greatly resembles certain species of the real life sea pens.
  • Scott "Obraxis" MacDonald mentioned/confirmed that Gabe's Feather is a reference to CEO and Managing Director of Valve, Gabe Newell, and "the two largest leaves are for the first two, while the third, smaller one is there, but might never get there". This is a reference to the famous Half-Life series, whereas Half-Life 1 and 2 have been released, but Half-Life 3 is still unconfirmed.
