A plant species originating from the planet, Optera. The Invid
used it as food. It was later stolen by the Robotech Masters (more specifically, Zor
) because it was the only known source for the energy source known as Protoculture. Zor escaped with the Flower of Life onboard his ship, the SDF-1
. Upon crashing on planet Earth, humans rebuilt the alien ship unaware of the Flower of Life or protoculture. The Robotech Masters
soon sent their warrior race known as the Zentraedi
to retrieve it. This triggered the First Robotech War
. After the Zentraedi failed, the Robotech Masters themselves set out to retrieve the Flower of Life, triggering the Second Robotech War.
