Capella Adopts

-->ARTIST SEARCH<--
Capellas are creatures who make up for their innate laziness by being highly sensitive to their environments and extremely adaptable.
Their defining feature are the tympanica on their body, which is similar to the ears of a frog or the human eardrum. These are used to detect the sounds and vibrations from their environment.


Several subspecies of Capella are known to exist, but currently only one is well known, the Savanna Capella, named for its resemblance to the hyena.
Little is known of the other subspecies, but over time more information is sure to come to light ;~)


Audio Variable: A song or soundbite introduced to a Capella egg during development in order to influence their appearance.
Tympanica: A membrane that absorbs sound and is connected to the general nervous system of a Capella. The shape of the tympanica is consistent within subspecies of Capella except in extreme cases of mutation. Deformed tympanica are always defective, meaning the Capella is unable to change its appearance after hatching.

rules and regulations

Postby owlcoholik » Fri Feb 03, 2017 5:50 am

* Capellas are a closed species, please don't make your own without permission
* You can only sell a Capella if you paid for it, and only for less than/equal to what you paid for it in the same currency
* Please notify me if you trade/gift/sell your Capella
* There's currently no limit to how many Capellas you can have, and if y'all can behave there never will be. If I ever feel the need to impose a limit anyone over the limit will be grandfathered in (meaning they won't have to give any away) but won't be able to adopt new ones until they get back under the limit. But I seriously doubt that'll ever happen lol

* I'm a kinda low energy/lazy person a lot of the time....my attention is fleeting so I'm giving y'all a fair warning on that
* these are never gonna be my top priority in life, they're a fun lil project for me but fun don't pay the bills
* i'm a pretty casual person and i really don't take things too seriously. just keep it fun yall
* uh idk i'll add more stuff if/as the need arises just behave yourselves : |

Image

right now these apply to the savanna capella, but future subspecies will have different rules ;~)

Standard: ears, tail, fringe hair and eyes
Uncommon: longer hair, mane extension, horns, other minor additions (case by case basis)
Super Rare: tympanica, additional limbs, vestigial wings, and other extreme additions (subject to approval on a case by case basis)
Forbidden: non-vestigial wings, beaks, hooves, and any combination of edits that makes the design unrecognizable as a Capella

Image
Because of their sensitivity to their environment, through exposure to new audio variables Capellas can undergo minor changes in appearance after hatching.
Each Capella can undergo three minor changes before their tympanica hardens.
Minor changes: color/hue change, small edits to markings, hair extension
Other edits are subject to approval on a case by case basis. A good rule to go by when making tympanica edits is that the new design should be recognizably an edit of the old one.
Any Capella with a deformed tympanica will not be able to undergo tympanica edits.

breeding info

Postby owlcoholik » Fri Feb 03, 2017 5:51 am

Breeding is still under construction and therefore closed

Image

Capellas reproduce asexually and frequently by laying 2-3 eggs. The eggs look similar to those of a frog's but are much more resistant to environmental stress. The outer membrane of the egg is made up of similar material to that of the tympanica. In the wild typically don't raise their own young and rely on brood parasitism for their young to survive into adulthood. Capellas will place their eggs into the nests or burrows of other animals and the embryo will adapt their appearance to that of the host parent's young through a process involving sound and vibrations....exactly how it works is still unknown.

Capellas are all biologically hermaphroditic, but true to their adaptive nature many have adopted gender identities after contact with human society.

Image

* You may breed your Capella once every two months. This may change in the future.
* You can either have your Capella reproduce by itself, with another Capella OR another non-humanoid OC.
* If you have your Capella reproduce asexually, you must introduce a new audio variable..or your clutch would just be made up of exact copies of your Capella lol
