The sentient clouds of Ooranye may in some cases belong to the category of intelligent life.  Communication with them, however, has always been problematic.  Some Nenns have gained the reputation of being "cloud talkers" but their claims have not been universally accepted.  Also, the symbiosis of some clouds with Yr, "City of Mists", suggests conscious co-operation.

Whether "intelligent" in our sense of the word or not, many of Ooranye's gaseous life-forms are certainly self-aware.

The zicena - because they are so unlike other clouds - have been included in the category "fauna".
