IBN: Tomopteris

"Inspired by nature" is an idea of taking a creature, plant or anything in nature and creating a character design from it.

"Tomopteris [link] is a genus of marine planktonic polychaete. If disturbed, some species are known to make a flurry of glowing sparks erupt from their parapodia." "Others in this genus are capable of dispelling a flurry of bioluminescent sparks from their parapodia. This is used to distract predators, making them go after the discharged glow instead of the actual animal." ([link]
