All we know is that they're as big as us, stronger than us, maybe even smarter than us... and that's scary.

Kleptagons are an anthropremorphic mamillian species that has evolved on a completely isolated timeline to human beings. Their ecosystem, Triassica-2 has been distinct from humans for the millions of years that followed the prehistorical mesozoic period, more specifically the early triassic and jurassic devisions. Kleptagons resemble larger forms of modern flying rodents, such as bats or sugar gliders. It is suspected that they share an early common ancestor with bats, and have just evolved beyond what was expected of them.

Kleptagons in their truest and most honest form, mean absolutely no harm. They are as curious as a child, personable as an adult, and learned as a student. Kleptagons are capable of cognative thought and complex emotion, similar to a human being and are adapted to learn languages, customs and sciences like human beings are. Due to an extensive gene pool, a product of their isolation and lack of natural speciation, kleptagons have evolved and rendered normal all sorts of physical mutations such as coat pattern/colour, size, and other individual characteristics like bioluminesence! This makes them incredibly unique and diverse, and an interesting wildcard for evolutionary study.

Kleptagons - Extra Info

Postby punkopup » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:24 am

June 1976, the privately funded Δ-Genesis climate program begins it's expedition in the midwest of Greenland. One of the first project's of it's kind, the paleoclimatologists at Δ-Genesis were determined to discover solutions modern and developing climate problems, that may rooted in the beginnings of our earth it's self. The president and founder of the revolutionary research company had developped a wonderous, in-depth, two year plan to drill into glaciers and observe the rich and thriving history within them. What they didn't expect to discover was Triassica-2, perhaps one of the most fascinating and well thriving isolated ecosystems on the planet earth.

A ravine, spanning miles into the planet's crust, completely and utterly sealed from the outside; Triassica-2 is your little slice of life from the Mesozoic period. It's been preserved and allowed to evolve all on it's own for millions of years.

♠ ♠ ♠

September 1988, Δ-Genesis, after being offered financial compensation by the government for their incredible and innovative research in climatology and paleontology, suffers detrimental budget cuts. The interests of the public have changed, and the company is not sure what direction to take with the information they've gathered during the passing 12 years. Not much else is disclosed about these budget cuts or about the company's fate, which leaves many conspiracy-indulgers curious about the progress of the research. Later in the year, the founder and spokesperson for Δ-Genesis declares bankrupcy. The organization is absorbed by the government.

♠ ♠ ♠

August 2007, the legendary discovery of Triassica-2 is left unpersued for the 20 years that follow it. Then, an anonymous tip forwarded to WikiLeaks gains global attention as the ravine's discovery and the downfall of Δ-Genesis returns to the mainstream. The WikiLeaks article discloses copies of transcrips suggesting the discovery of a comparitavely intelligent and cognitive species, they are nicknamed Kleptagon and are described as threatening, curious, and thieving creatures. The transcripts date back to the early 2000's, and the world media is absolutely outraged by the distrust the world goverments have had in their citizens. Animal-activist groups rage against the potential that our world leaders have been less than kind with the treatment of the newly discovered brethren. Biologists, Anthropologists and Historians alike declare that this is a crime in it's self against science and the very definition of discovery. Humanity lives in fear of what this means for us, and what else the world has to hide from it's people.

We are terrified of these aliens.

Kleptagons - Trait Guide

Postby punkopup » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:25 am

Kleptagons have a vast amount of differing traits. However some traits are more standard than others.
Kleptagons have two standard-type tails and a standard-shape of tail flaps. The combinations of these standard traits are seen above. Many kleptagons have a mutagen within them that causes them to lose fur on their tail to a certain degree. This called "rat's tail" and has an appearance similar to alopecia (patchy or no fur on the tail). Rat's tail is onset at birth, the condition is permanent and fur never winds up growing on the tail.

Common Edits
Common edits do not affect the appearance of the standard kaleptagon appearance very much.
Hair, Fangs / Snaggleteeth, Heterochromia, Sclera Colour, Claws, Nose shape.

Uncommon Edits
Uncommon edits are more noticeable.
Fur Length, Pupil Shape, Wing / Tail Flap Shape, Bioluminecence, Backmane, Tail Shape, Horns / Antlers.

Rare Edits
Rare edits include mutations that severely affect the kleptagon's appearance
Natural mutations, Missing Limbs, Halo(s), Extra Eyes (6 max), Extra Tails (3 max), Magic Powers, Unnatural Growths.
