Creature #829 Clyraffe

Postby Ryutana » November 17th, 2017, 1:05:45 am

Rosehill just posted about this new creature, so I figured I'd make the discussion this time around!

Egg:

This white egg has spots and adorable little horns.

Hatchling:

Hatchling clyraffes are able to get up and run shortly after hatching, so any magi raising one should ensure that it's in an enclosed area before it makes it out of the shell. Hatchlings are curious and love to lick anything they can find; with their long tongues, this also means they can get into holes and cracks to see if there's anything tasty inside. They especially enjoy sweet things, which can include new grass, young leaves, and any candy a magi forgets to take out of their pocket. Fortunately for the clyraffe, it's an adorable and friendly hatchling, and it enjoys gently wrapping its neck around people to give them a cuddle.

Adult:

Image Male Image Female

An adult clyraffe towers over magi; the average person is only as tall as its legs. Their body shape generally means a clyraffe can't be ridden but they're not often used for long journeys anyway. Clyraffe adults spend most of their day grazing, but many social groups live near a village or town, willing to come in and help heal sick magi in exchange for tasty foods they may not be able to find on their own. Their coat pattern is individual to each animal and can be used to identify which clyraffe it is when they're standing in a group. Though not as affectionate as when they're hatchlings - probably because their size makes it awkward and unintentionally dangerous - they still enjoy sticking their prehensile tongues into an unsuspecting magi's pocket to look for candy.

General description:

Clyraffes are tall, gangly creatures found mostly around the edges of the desert and within the open areas of forests. Despite their odd appearance, however, they can be quite graceful and possess great strength. Clyraffes are especially prized among healers, as they have the ability to find and remove parasites, and just their presence is often enough to ease someone's headache. They're generally gentle giants, living in loose social groups and raising their hatchlings with other members of the family, but they have been known to battle each other using their long heavy necks. Their spots help them camouflage in the dappled shadows among the trees, to the surprise of many magi who stumble upon them accidentally. It's thought the feathers on their legs help protect their slim ankles from sharp objects, and their skin is tough enough that it takes a concerted effort to break it.

Obtained from the Stream. They are permanent and will eventually be able to breed.

Okay, I'm curious. This sounds like it'll be interesting!

I was actually surprised I was the first this time around! The name sounds really, really interesting, and I adore the description. Makes me think they'll likely be similar to giraffes (keeping my fingers crossed! Utterly adore them!)
