Sapient Filtering Agar
A highly intelligent version of the Semi Sapient Slimes. These agar based blobs are excellent cleansing filters for all kinds of magical and illness based maladies.
AnatomyOut of water, the slimes dry up too much to be graceful. On land, the agar shifts its weight to roll. They don't do well with much of an incline. Instead, they patiently wait and hitch a ride on an unsuspecting mobile being. Water is another matter. They absorb water from their surroundings, and can shift their shape to create simple fin-like structures. They can also siphon water to propel themselves in the direction they wish to go.
Genetics and ReproductionUnlike other slimes, they only grow to a saucer-sized width before they divide and create more of their kind. They grow best when fed large amounts of ki. Though, they are not predatory about their ki consumption. Instead, they try to offer a symbiotic benefit by filtering out any diseases for their host.
Average IntelligenceNot fully evaluated. But as best researchers can tell, they have at minimum toddler level intelligence.
Perception and Sensory CapabilitiesDespite having no visible sensory glands, the slimes can 'see' and know when they are near other beings and objects. For sticky Yokai that absorb objects and ki, they keep themselves free of debris. To do this, they expel the foreign objects with a puff or air or water. Thus, if you hear hissing or feel something hit you, it may or may not be an insult or aggressive behavior.

I love the idea of intelligent, cute slimes. Very original. I can see them being pets/assistants to technicians and scientists in labs.
Thank you! Yes, they probably hinder at least as much as they help. :D
Very fun, very cute. But also: I need to know more about dolphins in your setting O.O
Thank you! That is an awesome article idea!
Yesss, more adorable slimes :D
Creator of Araea, Megacorpolis, and many others.
Glad you approve. :D Thank you!

"On land, the agar shifts its weight to roll. They don't do well with much of an incline." OMG! More sliiiiiiiimes <3 :D I love this. I love that they have slight intelligence -- I want one :D
I'm gonna have to figure out how to send them through the interwebs... (And thank you!)
