Xys of Whazzit

Created by Fersara

Singular: Xys
Plural: Xys
Group: Warren of Xys

General Info: Xys are small, whimsical creatures, not dumb but wonderfully witty and often scheming. Whether they are grumpy or sweetly light-hearted is up to their rank. They think fast, quick to make decisions and escape dilemmas. Xys do mindspeak, but in short bursts with bad grammar. They are very intelligent, however, and can send images just as well as any Gryphon. Typically they'll just make strange chittering sounds.

Though they are odd-looking, they are also unusually beautiful in their appearance. Their build, around the size of a small cat or rabbit, is slightly draconic with large, lengthy bodies and slender tails, their figures flexible and smooth. Short legs end in hand-like forepaws, allowing them to move nimbly and fluidly on all fours. Their tapered snouts stretch up with long necks, big vivid eyes peering from their soft, authentic faces. Sprouted from their shoulder blades are feathery avian wings, and from the tops of their head are soft bunny-like ears. They have two long, slim tails, tipped with feathery fans. Their hides are soft and velvety, faintly tinted with an almost metallic sheen. These creatures are very bright, in character and in image, born with a chain that hangs around their necks boasting a little round orb that glows with a strange, eternal light. Other than these vital trinkets, their bodies can be any color, covered in a fluid metallic sheen almost like plasma.

Like crows are to glimmering jewelry, Xys are attracted to sources of light, finding anything from candles to flashlights perfectly admirable.

Mating Info: Xys chases are simple and quick, though the leader will choose how far it will go. A female will announce her chase with a large, incredibly brilliant beam from their light bauble that sends a pillar of light into the sky. Its luminescence will radiate to the males and notify them of the event. When everyone is gathered, the female will lead the chase either on foot or in the skies, though usually they lift off if their legs grow tired. More lights are usually used during the chase, though it isn't necessary.

Bonding Info: These creatures give live birth to their babies, caring for them until they have reached a reasonable, old enough age, usually when they have learned to fly. The family gathers around in a safe area, awaiting hopeful candidates. The humanoids wishing to bond should bring a light source, the thing that most attracts Xys. Once they begin to attend the young Xys and interact, the creatures will choose their bondeds. Since they are such swift decision-makers, it doesn't take a Xys too long to realize and pick its chosen.
