Awebergines, like their woebergine cousins, are awesome anthropomorphic eggplants, but with goofy green funny faces and long plant-like luscious limbs, with a rich red-orange bulky bodies. The red and green colouration makes them look close to walking tomatoes, loving to dance in a way that sends foes into a fevered trance-like dance. They also call for help from their less beefy brethren in order to bulk out their numbers in a limp attempt to turn the tide in battle.
Awebergine's English name is a combination of the words awe and aubergine, which is another word for eggplant. Their original Japanese name, Melanzana, is the Italian word for eggplant.
