Elevener (or gull or intentionless) is an 11-cell still life. It consists of two siamesed eater 1s that share three cells of their tails while retaining both their glider-eating and boat-bit-catching capabilities.
Elevener is the forty-seventh most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census (the second-most common of its size, after the boat tie ship), being less common than cis-mirrored bookend but more common than block on cap. It is also the fifty-sixth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.
An elevener can be formed by applying a banana spark to the tail of an eater 1; as both the eater 1 and the component cost two glider, a total of four gliders are needed to synthesize an elevener. There is also a 3-glider collision that produces a constellation of an elevener, a block and a beehive, leading to another two-stage 4-glider synthesis for the still life.
In other rules
In HighLife, the elevener is almost 60 times more common than it is in Life. In B34e/S23, it is even more common, as fleet predecessors evolve into two eleveners instead of two ship-ties.
