The Swarms

Phyphor had nightmares about the Swarms. He dreamt of twisted shapes against the sky, twisted screams in the noon-day sun in the days when the Neversh flew. He dreamt of the Stalkers and the lowly scuttling keflos, of the double-hulled Engulfers, the green centipedes, the Wings, the tunnellers, the blue ants, and all the others – the fearless myrmidons of the Skull of the Deep South.

What are they?


a) a life form indigenous to Olo Malan; or

b) a life form alien to Olo Malan

Given that humans are alien to Olo Malan, I'm inclined to believe a).

Then again, they could be an alien race that travelled to the planet independently, or were introduced by humans.
