[Scalvoris] Fauna

Irrawaddie (Sea Huskies)
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is common in the waters around Scalvoris.
Price: Tier 7, restricted to Scalvoris citizens (sold at the Menagerie, not exported outside of the island)

Habitat: The Irrawaddie are common around the island of Scalvoris and are likely to be seen from any point of the coast.

Lifespan and Development: Irrawaddie live for roughly ten arcs. They breed once per arc with the female laying between seven and eleven eggs, only half of which survive. The first arc, the babies stay with their mother but then at roughly an arc old they might leave the safe waters of their family. However, most Irrawaddie actually travel in family groups, choosing to stay together. Whilst this is true in the wild, it is important for those who train them also as they perform better if they are working with a family member.

Diet: Fish. Just fish. Lots of fish.

Temperament: Loyal and family focused, the Irrawaddie are generally pacifists but, if attacked, they will react aggressively. They are affectionate towards each other and they will often "hug" by wrapping around each other.

Abilities: Very fast swimmers and very strong. Irrawaddie are between fifteen and twenty foot long and are strong swimmers as well as being well co-ordinated and physically strong. It is for this reason that enterprising Sclavorians developed the Irrawaddie harness and use trained Irrawaddie as "Sea Huskies". They pull cargo and goods which have been secured on to a strange raft like craft with one rider. This is an incredibly efficient way of moving goods and has had a major impact on Scalvoris economy. It is also possible to place an individual saddle on an Irrawaddie and use them as a water mount.

Weaknesses: Although physically strong, the Irrawaddie do not have good armour and are not able to sustain much damage. They are not natural predators, their strength lies in numbers.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Hafrein
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is common around Scalvoris
Price: Available at Tier 4 (sold throughout the island)

Habitat: Hafrein are found throughout Scalvoris. This hardy creature is as able to survive on the side of Scalvoris Mountains, in the volcanic heat of Faldrass or on the islet of Immortals' Tongue.

Lifespan and Development: Hafrein live for about twenty arcs, depending on their lifestyle. They are born in litters of three or four and they are children for the season of Ashan, when they are born.

Diet: Grass, grain, some meat

Temperament: Intelligent and easy going the Hafrein looks somewhat like a reindeer / goat mix. They are much more akin to the temperament of a well trained horse, though.

Abilities: A sturdy, strong and reliable mount which is able to navigate difficult landscapes easily. The Hafrein is a very common sight around Scalvoris, they grow to the same height as horses and are usually used as mounts as they are much more able to survive the place.

Weaknesses: They are prone to infections and diseases in their feet, especially if a stone gets stuck in there etc.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Aye Aye (Scalvoris Mouse)
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is very common around Scalvoris
Price: They aren't sold, as they are considered vermin.

Habitat: Anywhere on Scalvoris, no matter where you are ~ this large vermin is likely to be found. There is an urban legend that, no matter where you are on the island, you are never more than five foot away from an Aye-Aye. Whether that is true or not though is a matter for some debate.

Lifespan and Development: Born in litters of 12 - 14, the Aye-Aye breed almost constantly so, the ones which are seen are only half the story. Some people genuinely feel concern that one trial they will take over the island. They are babies for about ten trials, during which time the mother usually eats four or five of them. Once they reach adulthood, they live for another five arcs, approximately. Often caled a "Scalvoris Mouse" these creatures can, if given sufficient food, grow to the size of a large dog. Rows of sharp teeth mean that they can (and will) eat almost anything.

Diet: Anything. Everything.

Temperament: Intelligent and cunning, these creatures survive where no others would. They are territorial and vicious when attacked but will not instigate a combat.

Abilities: The raw ability to survive in almost every habitat.

Weaknesses: Individually weak and easy to kill.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Dinili
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is common around Scalvoris
Price: Available at Tier 4 (available throughout the island.)

Habitat: Anywhere on Scalvoris, Dinili are about. They are herd / pack animals and are often farmed, especially on the lands outside of Almund. They are also a firm favourite in Darbyton.

Lifespan and Development: Born in litters of up to 10, the Dinili are very small when born, ludicrously so when compared to the size they grow. For the first 40 trials of their life they grow at an enormous rate, soon becoming the size of a pony. They are generally docile and easy to train. They are ideal mounts on Scalvoris in one way, because they live for approximately 20 arcs and remain strong for at least 19 of these, only starting to slow down in their final arc. Also, their docile nature and good temperament means that they make good family mounts. Their hard armoured back makes a pretty natural saddle for bipedal species and races such as the Ithecal, for example, simply drill through their armoured back to make a customised saddle. The Dinili really don't seem to mind this at all.

Diet: Herbivores

Temperament: Docile, easily trained and unlikely to lose their tempers, Dinili are excellent family animals for this reason and are a favourite with farmers.

Abilities: Armoured back.

Weaknesses: Placid temper means they are likely to just die in a fight.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Stagrein
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is uncommon around Scalvoris
Price: Available at Tier 6 (sold dead, not for sale alive)

Habitat: Stagrein are found throughout the island in small packs of 3 - 5. They shy away from populated areas, though, as they are incredibly skittish by nature.

Lifespan and Development: Usually born individually, a Stagrein pup stays with its mother for the first half-arc of its life. Twins are rare, but do happen. When born, the Stagrein looks more like a foal than any other creature, other than the incredibly soft fur which covers it. With beautiful, intricate patterns and a variety of colours ranging from vivid purples to monochrome, the Stagrein is coveted for it's pelt and the beautiful silk of it's tail. It's meat is considered a delicacy, also and it's horns are sought out because of their individual properties. It is a hunter's paradise. Each Stagrein lives approximately 12 arcs.

Diet: Herbivores

Temperament: The Stagrein gets very stressed, very easily. Being around people, loud noise, being hunted; all of these things and more will add to a Stagrein's stress. When they get stressed a chemical reaction causes their fur to fall off, almost instantaneously with what remains becoming matted and knotted. This means that, if one is to hunt a Stagrein for their pelt, they need to be at least an expert in hunting, preferable master or above. Stealth is also vital.

The Stagrein, if threatened, transforms from docile and skittish to enraged predator. It's sharp teeth and horns will be used to maximum advantage, as will its strong legs.

Abilities: Able to fight very well when cornered, there are rumours that the pelt and tail can be used to make very unusual cloth, but thus far no one has done so.

Weaknesses: Usually skittish, stress physically damages them.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Pantheon
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is common around Scalvoris
Price: Pelt: Tier 4, Untrained pup: Tier 5, Trained adult: Tier 7(available to be bought in the Menagerie only)

Habitat: Pantheon tend to congregate most around Immortals' Tongue and Ishalltr. They are, however, a common sight in the skies over the island and are likely to be seen from anywhere. They often perch on rooftops in inhabited areas with the intention of snatching leftover food.

Lifespan and Development: Lifespan: approximately 12 arcs. The Pantheon are born in litters of between 4 - 6 and remain pups for approximately 90 trials. Then, they start to grow and become full grown by about a half arc old. They have strong back legs and a large wingspan in comparison to their body. They could be used as mounts by most humans, but couldn't bear the weight of a fully grown warrior in armour, for example. This makes them good for stealth missions, especially in snowy conditions if it is a white Pantheon or at night for a black one. These are the only two colours they ever are.

Diet: Carnivores

Temperament: They can be trained to be loyal and well behaved pets and / or mounts. Arcs of being around people has made them more docile generally, although the temperament of an untrained Pantheon is akin to that of a feral cat.

Abilities: Flight. Can fly for an extended period of time. Excellent night vision.

Weaknesses: Get skittish if not fed. Need to sleep for at least six breaks per trial or will refuse to comply.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Scalvwing Steed
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is uncommon around Scalvoris
Price: Foal: Tier 8, Adult: Tier 9 (please note: in order to try and keep them exclusive, the single ranch in Egilrun is the only place these are sold. Any male Scalvwings sold will be gelded so that they can not be used for breeding). For the purposes of the Shoppe, these are an Exotic mount.

Habitat: Scalvwing Steed are found most often around Egilrun. There is a small ranch outside there where they are bred. Traditionally they congregate around the base of the Scalvoris Mountains and the ranch is just to the north of the village of Egilrun so quite close to their native habitat. That is not to say that they are not found throughout the whole island; they are, but Egilrun is where they are most often seen.

Lifespan and Development: Lifespan: approximately 30 arcs. Their development is much the same as the horses which they look so like, with the same gestation, birth and time as a child. They range in colouring from pure white through to pure black and with many shades in between. In their colouring they are unlike their equestrian cousins as there are a range of colours, including deep purples, blues and green.

Diet: Primarily hay and grass

Temperament: Depends on the individual beast; those who work with them would say that each Scalvwing Steed has it's own unique temperament. In terms of temperament they are very horse-like.

Abilities: Flight. Can fly for an extended period of time and also travel across land.

Weaknesses: Get skittish if not fed. Need to trust their owner and so the owner must bond / develop a relationship before they will allow you to ride them whilst they fly.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Scalvoris Giant Spiders
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is rare around Scalvoris
Habitat: Scalvoris Giant Spiders live in the caves and catacombs underneath Scalvoris and the Scaltoth jungle. They prefer warmth so are more likely to be found underneath Faldrass especially, but also Scalvoris Town and the parts of the island where the volcano runs beneath. They are only seen above ground in the Scaltoth jungles.

Details: Really, the major detail is that this is an enormous spider. There are various reports of them, ranging from a six foot body to a twenty foot one, but by the time you add in the legs, the lots of eyes and the very very evident fangs and teeth, you've got as much information as you need.

Lifespan and Development: They live for up to 5 arcs during which time they lay eggs 7 times. They are territorial and they develop very quickly. From hatching to adult is a matter of about 40 trials (no one has stood still and lived long enough to find out) and then they spend the next 5 arcs making webs and terrorising anything they can prey on. For reasons no one knows, when they die of old age, they crack open and fall to dust. This does not happen if they are killed.

Diet: They crave meat, especially if the kill is alive. However they can live on the fungus and so on that grows in caves.

Temperament: Vicious killing machines with eight legs. They can't be trained. They can't be reasoned with.

Abilities: Venomous fangs which deliver a paralysing venom. Lots of very sharp teeth in their strangely shaped mouths. Incredible strength and agility. They can also spin a truly wonderful silken strand which is light and very strong. If you could collect enough of it then you could use it to stitch wounds, make beautiful gowns and many, many other uses. It's sticky, too. Their preferred method of killing is to paralyse, wrap you in their webbing and slowly drink your blood then devour you.
Oh, also? Their bodies are covered in chitinous armour which is flexible but solid and is very difficult to pierce with a sword etc.

Weaknesses: They are afraid of fire and bright light. Their eyes (all of them) are vulnerable to attack and very painful if attacked. Be aware, though, if you don't kill it when you poke it in the eye with your sword, you're going to really really annoy it.

SECRETS DISCOVERED!!
In this thread, Padraig discovered that there is a spot, right in the middle of the spider's head which, when struck, stuns them. Handy to know!
As a consequence of that thread, also, Padraig and Faith discovered that the giant spider venom can cause a long term reaction which leads to eventual loss of sight. There are still more secrets to discover about this creature!

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Nightpup
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is uncommon around Scalvoris
Price: Pup: Tier 4, Untrained: Tier 4, Trained: Tier 5

Habitat: The NightPup is a Scalvoris-specific breed of dog which is bred in Scalvoris Town, Almund and Darbyton. They are most available in these locations, although they can be bought throughout the island. There are not examples of the NightPup in the wild, they are all the domestic variety.

Lifespan and Development: Lifespan: approximately 16 arcs. Their development is much the same as the dog which they look like, with the same gestation, birth and time as a puppy.

Appearance: Growing to roughly the size and shape of a Collie Dog, the NightPup looks a lot bigger because it is a very fluffy beast. They range in colouring from pure white through to pure black and with many shades and patterns in between. In their colouring they are unlike other canines as there are a range of colours, including deep purples, blues and green. Their eyes are always a solid colour, which is always different to their coat. They have strange bushy tails and long rabbit-like ears. The tail and ears are usually the same colour. They also have a second pair of very small eyes above their main ones. These are fully functional.

Diet: Meat & Vegetables, as per dogs.

Temperament: The NightPup is a friendly creature which craves attention and love. If it is homed somewhere where it is given sufficient attention it will become a loyal family member who will die to defend the household. They are naturally playful and will tend to identify most strongly with one member of the house they live in, although they will defend all of them. They make excellent family pets due to their placid temperament and loyal nature.

Abilities: If defending their owners, the NightPup will use their sharp teeth to their fullest. They are heavy for their size and will defend without consideration for their own safety. Their only other ability is that they glow in the dark, emitting a soft and very comforting glow.

Weaknesses: They eat a lot. Need to trust their owner and bond / develop a relationship before they will defend you. Need to be well trained or they become furniture-chewing machines. Cute, furry ones, but still.

[Scalvoris] Fauna

Scalvoris Naked Mole Rat
Image
Developed by Pegasus

This creature is common around Scalvoris
Price: Dead Tier 4 MoleRat Skin is more sought after than moleskin as it's even softer.

Habitat: Everywhere. I mean, everywhere. You live on Scalvoris? You've seen one of these.

Lifespan and Development: They are born in litters of up to 8, they mature to adults very quickly (within 20 trials) and then they live for about 3 arcs. During the time that they live, they will sire or birth up to 6 litters of pups.

Appearance:
Ugly. Bald with lots of wrinkles and very long (very sharp) front teeth. Tiny little eyes which are entirely black. There is, however, nothing wrong with their vision.
Size: Body is usually between 20 - 30cms with the tail being about 4 - 5cms.
They are heavy and dense for their size and their wrinkled, horrid looking skin is surprisingly soft.

Diet: Naked mole rats are the ultimate in "opportunist omnivorous eaters". What that means is that they will eat anything. Literally, whatever they can find. This includes, but is not limited to: grains, fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts etc. If desperate, they will hunt for insects and other small creatures.

Temperament: They are permanently hungry, can get into almost anywhere it seems and they will attack if cornered. In terms of having a personality, that's about it. They are as happy in packs as they are alone and will eat their children if there's nothing else around. Or their grandmother.

Abilities: Big long sharp nasty front teeth. Natural carriers of disease.

Weaknesses: Individually weak and their constant hunger means that they can be easily poisoned etc
