|The wide range of sizes and forms that humanoid bionts can take in the Terragen Sphere|
Any organic life form, Terragen or otherwise, whether natural or engineered. Most offten this term is used exclusively for organic beings of sophont-grade intelligence, since the root of the word is "biological sophont". Among Terragens, many bionts are of humanoid form derived from the original human baseline shape, either by descent or imitation, although there are many other body-plans.
