Rodent Mammalian Fauna

"The Cumone, to me, are the cutest of Haven's many furry critters. They are so miniature, it's often times hard to even see them. And the little squeaking noise they make as they flap their tiny wings melts my heart whenever I hear it."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Cumone: Overview

The Cumone are a common species of areal rodent prey mammalian organisms native to the many temperate forests across planet Haven, that resemble a small ball shaped aerial rodent. They are most famous for being the smallest mammal species on the planet, only having a maximum length of one inch and a weight of around two grams. They are an extremely common animal, with a global population of around eight billion individual Cumone, and as a result, have become a fundamental pillar of many forests' respective food chains.

They are very often kept as pets by Haven's intelligent populace, with large amounts of the creature being kept in large colonies of hundreds of individual Cumones. As well, wild Cumone have been labeled as an invasive pest species, as they travel in large numbers and pose a risk to crops of produce as they move across the country side, eating thousands of tons of produce and hundreds of acres of farmland.

Cumone: Physical

The Cumone have a rounded, spherical shape with a bipedal build. They have two small legs that are obscured by the thin fur that surrounds them, each having a bird like talon appendage at the end, which the Cumone uses to dig into small leaves and branches. They bodies evolved in a rounded shape in order to better insulate the internal heat within their bodies, as the thick winds they traverse would otherwise freeze them, as well, it also gives them a fairly aerodynamic build, being able to travel across wind currents.

Unlike most prey species, the Cumone have two front-facing eyes, which the Cumone uses to see nearby areas in which to land with expert precision, being able to assess the perfect landing spot by just giving a glace at its surroundings. Despite their expert attention to detail however, their vision range is not very far, only being able to see about thirteen feet in front of themselves. However their hearing range is very impressive, being able to hear things up to a kilometer away, allowing them to pinpoint any would be danger. It has whiskers on the side of its face that they use to stabilize themselves when they land on an object.

Located at the sides of their bodies are two butterfly-like wings that are retracted into their thick fur coating. Once unfurled, these wings take on a translucent, see-through appearance. On the wings, various miniature scales are located all across them, which are used to decrease the amount of drag given to them by the wind current the respective Cumone flies through. Long crack-like patterns are spread across the wings as well, which are used to allow the wings to bend and flap against the wind, allowing the Cumone to fly. They are extremely fast when flying, being able to fly up to forty kilometres an hour. The Cumone moves so quickly, that it often times needs to land to get a rough idea of where it is as its brain is unable to perceive the light around it when going at maximum speed. These wings have a diameter of only around half an inch in length, making it very hard to see.

The Cumone lack wings at birth, and during their early years, they will slowly begin to grow from the sides of their bodies. As a result, the Cumone is utterly dependent on their mother as they grow into adulthood, as without their wings, they are unable to locate any food, as well as avoid would be predators. It will typically take around a standard year for the Cumone to fully grow.

Cumone: Behavior

Most Cumone will spend their entire lives foraging for food and water, as well as finding a mate. During the day, the Cumone will fly about its native forest, searching for optimal leaves to feed upon as they are able to determine the water content within said leaf. They will also constantly emit a small squeaking sounds, which they use to locate a mate of the opposite gender, This is a trait that all Cumone share, and they as a collective do so each and every day, leading to the species large population count.

A Cumone will also have a specific nest located atop of a small branch. These nests are typically made out of small twigs, leaves and grass gathered by the Cumone, and will only be about five inches in diameter, allowing for plenty of space for two adult Cumone and a clutch of litter. During the winter months, the Cumone will hibernate in these nests, creating a small cover for the nest out of thick leaves to provide a barrier from the cold.

Cumone exist in large colonies, spread about several trees and nests. These communities of Cumone range widely among different colonies, with some as small as about twenty Cumone, to as a large as a few thousand. They are extremely territorial as well, if an adult Cumone from a foreign colony attempts to encroach on their respective territory, then they will attack the intruder. New members are inducted when one mates with an individual Cumone that is already apart of a colony, and their respective litter will be included among them as well.

"The Gripter are an interesting creature to say the least. Seeing them jump their way across the rocky crags I traversed during my venture across Haven was one of the most humorous moments....but there's nothing humorous when it comes to their strength. Anytime I was made witness to them catching various species of insect, I watched as the poor creature attempted to free itself from its grip of iron, only to always fail and be consumed. I would dread the day I was shrunk to a level where the Gripter would think I look like a tasty snack."--William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Gripter: Overview

The Gripter are a common species of rodent mammalian organisms native to the many rocky outcroppings across Haven. They resemble various species of rodent, but most closely appear like rodents belonging to the Sciuridae (squirrel/chipmunk) family of rodents. Their name comes from their famous front and back paws, allowing them to grip onto objects very easily. They are extremely common, having a global population of around three billion individual members and they can be found in almost any rocky or barren temperate landscape on planet Haven, always hiding among the many cracks and crags located therein.

Due to their commonality, they are often labled as a: "pest species" and private residents in areas where they are known to inhabit are exempt from the typical laws prohibiting the hunting of Haven-Born fauna, and are given free reign to trap or exterminate them as Gripters often times can lay waste to many gardens of essential produce an individual may be keeping. Often times however, Gripters will be kept as pets by Haven's populace, and are one of the most popular rodent mammals to be kept by sapient individuals.

Gripter: Physical

Gripters have a quadruped build and share many commonalities to their cousin species, the Haven Squirrel, however they often times grow much larger then that of the aforementioned species of rodent, usually growing to length of around a foot (0.3048 meters) or more, and an average weight of around twenty five pounds. (11 kilograms) Across their body, many finely grown hairs have been specifically developed to be able to withstand the thick winds of their native environment, as well as providing protection from the rough terrain they cross on a daily basis.

A rather unique trait among the Gripter compared to its contemporaries of its respective family it belongs to is that the Gripter is an omnivore species, as they often times need to supplement vegetation with fresh meat due to the lack of many species of flora in their native environment. As a result, the Gripter has evolved to be able to close in on prey very quickly, being able to clock speeds up to thirty five kilometers per standard hour.

Along with great speeds, the Gripter has specially developed eyes and noses to be able to locate small prey insects and various other small fauna, being able to see up to a kilometer in a distance, as well as being able to notice the smallest detail out of place atop the rocky surface they are walking upon. Their noses are able to give them a similar ability, being able to detect very faint smells produced by various species of prey. Their hearing on the other hand isn't anything to write home about, only being able to hear in close proximity to itself, leading it to rely on the two aforementioned methods above all others.

Their name comes from their famed ability to grip objects, as they evolved with powerful opposable thumbs to both grip would be food, as well as traverse their native environment more easily. As a result, the Gripter is able to grab ahold of the rocky surface, and with its specially developed legs, it will fling itself across the many cracks they may otherwise fall into. With this, the Gripter is able to safely cross the hazardous ground, pounce upon prey, as well as avoid would be predators, being able to fling themselves up to four feet vertically, meaning their predators need to be extremely fast themselves. If they manage to ensnare prey, they will lock them in their grip with almost an iron-like vice, requiring a large amount of force for it to break its grasp on the unfortunate creature it has caught.

Gripter: Behavior

The Gripter inherently are a very skittish creature, often times fleeing from the smallest sound made in their general direction, as well as any animal that may only be slightly larger then themselves. They are also fairly aggressive, as they will more often then not attack any other Gripter that comes within proximity of their nest. However once the Gripter mating season begins, which typically happens on Haven's local mid summer months, the Gripter will become much more passive, and will begin to search for a mate of the opposite sex.

Once a mate is found, the two will begin to create a nest together within a small crack or crag they find, covering any entrances with debris they discover. After the female Gripter becomes pregnant, the male Gripter will begin to search for food to bring back to her as she awaits to give birth, which will typically take around a standard month after conception. A female Gripter will typically have a litter of around two to three Gripters, which will typically take around half a standard year to fully grow, until' they too leave the nest and begin to search for a mate themselves.

Feline Mammalian Fauna

"The Pulvis Cat, or as I like to call them: "Dirty Cat" is a creature that often times made me somewhat frustrated during my trek across Haven. They are so adorable, I always wanted to pet their small fluffy heads whenever I came across one, but they'd always dart away from me at great speeds, usually jumping its way on tops of tall trees. It always made me incredibly sad, but then I managed to get myself a demsicated one and she has been a faithful friend ever since."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Pulvis Cat: Overview

Pulvis Cat are a common species of feline predator mammalian organisms native to many temperate forests, plains, deserts and badlands across planet Haven. They resemble a mix of the "Persian Longhair" species of feline, and the "Vulpes vulpes" (red fox) species of canine, sharing several physical traits with the two. The Pulvis Cat is a very common animal, being easily found all across Haven's temperate climates, with a theorized global population of around fifty-two million individuals. They can often times be found in small packs or colonies of several Pulvis Cats hunting and coexisting together.

Thanks to their commonality, the Pulvis Cat is a fairly famous animal among the many cultures across planet Haven, appearing in many pieces of cultural art and iconography. Along with appearing in art, the Pulvis Cat is often times kept as a house pet by much of the planet's populace, as they are a fairly low maintenance pet. Most famously, the: "Pulvis Crossers," an illegal gang of ravagers found in the southern regions of the Bariquel continent use the Pulvis Cat as their symbol and namesake, as they often times implement tactics of the Pulvis Cat in their illegal doings.

Pulvis Cat: Physical

The Pulvis Cat's baseline physical appearance is as feline as one can find on Haven, having a quadruped build with two front facing eyes, a slanted snout on the center of its rounded face, and two ears atop their head, along with two sets of five whiskers on the their cheeks in order to assist them in balance. They have thick, often dirty and patchy fur which range in color from faded oranges and grays, to lighter whites and dark blacks. They are fairly short, only typically standing at an average height of around fifteen inches tall (33 centimeters) and an average weight of around eleven pounds, (4 kilograms) making them fairly light weight.

Located on their posterior the Pulvis Cat has a long, bushy tail covered in thick layers of fur, which often times are more then double the length of their bodies. This tail is used for many different purposes, such as the removal of debris in the Pulvis Cats way, to gripping onto objects, with the Pulvis Cat often times using their respective tails to grip onto the branches of tall trees in order to flee from a potential threat or attacker. Thanks to this, the Pulvis Cat is an exceptional climber, being able to leap across great heights of a tree and catch themselves before they reach the ground below.

Their abilities of sight, smell and sound are all fairly impressive, with a Pulvis Cat being able to see up to two kilometers in a distance, as well as being able to see perfectly well in the dark of night. They are able to detect the faintest scent among the deep and thick dust or ashen land, snuffling their nose underneath the ground to locate small prey such as insect or worm species of fauna, while their eats have been developed to able to detect very slight sounds, allowing them to be aware of any threat coming from any direction around their person, fleeing if the sound particularly frightens them, often times retreating to the tree tops in order to stay out of reach of the sound's origin.

Due to their small stature and weight, the Pulvis Cat often times needs to flee from other rival predators, as they lack many defensive abilities. Thankfully for them however, they are able to move across the ground at incredible speeds, clocking in at maximum speeds of around thirty-five kilometers per standard hour, making them one of the fastest feline species of Haven in their respective weight-class. Along with their great abilities of speed, the Pulvis Cat has been specially developed to be able to hide from both predator and prey. They do this by quickly digging a small hole into the dust covered ground, then quickly obscuring themselves by placing the debris created in the process on top of themselves, with their dirt colored fur camouflaging the Pulvis Cat among the dusty surface they are now obscured by.

Pulvis Cat: Behavior

Pulvis Cats are extremely timid and skittish creatures, often times retreating from the simplest of sounds. Their careful nature extends to every aspect of their life, never overstepping or taking unnecessary risks and always taking the protection of themselves or their pride as the prime directive in their existence. Thanks to this, combined with their impressive abilities of speed and agility has made it very rare for a predator species to manage to grab ahold of a Pulvis Cat and consume them, with only predator species specially developed at hunt them to be able to have even a chance at capturing one.

Every Pulvis Cat across the planet of Haven belongs to a pride or pack of some sort, often times being apart of a pride that has dozens of different Pulvis Cats within it. These prides are formed whenever two Pulvis Cats who currently do not belong to a pack breed, with their lineage continuing the tradition and breeding amongst themselves. This may lead one to think that the Pulvis Cat are born with several birth defects due to most species experiencing such affects due to interbreeding, however the Pulvis Cat seem to be exempt from this rule, as if any mutation is experienced within a new born Pulvis Cat, then it is despite the fact that their parents are directly related.

Along with their careful nature, they are very aggressive when it comes to other Pulvis Cats that are foreign to their respective pride, with full blown "wars" being waged between two sperate Pulvis Cat packs whenever they come into contact with another. The reason for this would be the nature of the respective environment the Pulvis Cat calls home. Due to the creature being very effective hunters, they cannot afford to allow another large pride of Pulvis Cats to live in the same area as there simply isn't enough food to go around if two or more prides are hunting the available prey at peak efficiency.

"Ah the Blobcat, a very silly looking creature indeed. Watching them hop around the icy surfaces of frozen wastelands, one cannot help but chuckle. But remember to keep your wits about you when interacting with a colony, as if you anger one, you anger the whole family."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.'

A tan-colored Blobcat.

Blobcat: Overview

The Blobcat are a species of feline predator mammalian organisms native to shorelines of the colder regions of Haven, such as the continents of Vanriel and Ruhiel, as well as the many icy islands strung about the planet's oceans such as Remina and Alannia. They resemble a mix of the common house cat and sea lion species native to planet Earth , and like the two aforementioned species, the Blobcat are a semi-aquatic predator species, often hunting small mammals and fish. They are a fairly common animal, with a theorized global population of around twelve million. They can be found in large quantities, as they travel in large colonies, typically along the banks of a body of water.

They are a fairly famous animal, as many inhabitants of Haven have taken a liking to the Blobcat's feline appearance, with many even keeping them as pets. Though they require a large amount of upkeep, as well as a cool climate and plenty of water to swim in.

Blobcat: Physical

Blobcat's have a quadruped build, growing at an average height of around three feet (0.9144 meters), and an average weight of two hundred and twenty-eight pounds (one hundred and thirty kilograms). They have two front facing eyes, two ears on the sides of their head, sets of whiskers on its cheeks, and a nose at the center of its face.

A typical Blobcat's physical appearance and structure is very blubbery and fat, allowing them to live in extremely cold regions, and to remain buoyant while they are skimming across the surface of water. Due to their large bodies, they move very slowly on land, hopping around at a maximum speed of around five kilometres per hour. Thanks to their small limbs, they are unable to traditionally walk, instead, they are forced to bounce across the icy surface they inhabit. However, once they enter within water, they become extremely fast and dexterous, being able to move up to fifty kilometres an hour, allowing them to catch many types of fish with relative ease. Their fur can have a myriad of colors, ranging from light-tans, to deep blacks, in rare circumstances, a Blobcat can be born with albinism, turning them as white as the snow they traverse.

Their abilities of sight is fairly impressive, allowing a Blobcat to see up to thirteen kilometres away. Their eyes also have improved visibility in low light levels, allowing them to see a cloudy midnight with a relatively high light-level, analogous Haven's mid-evening light-level. Their eyes evolved this way due to the environment they primarily hunt in, as they require good visibility underneath the darkened water.

Their ears can detect many minute sounds, allowing a Blobcat to hear almost anything around them in a three kilometer area, in a way akin to sonar. These ears were specifically developed to both locate prey underneath the water, as well as potential threats, making them able to retreat well in advance. Their abilities of smell are fairly weak however, only able to smell objects in very close proximity to them. This may seem odd to some, but as the sense of smell isn't required as much since they're other senses allow them to already locate prey with great efficiency, it seems to have been left by the evolutionary wayside.

Blobcat: Behavior

Blobcats share many behavioral similarities to most feline species., they are very typically very skittish, fleeing from any potential threats almost instantly. They are also very inquisitive, often investigating strange things they have not encountered before. They can also be very aggressive, often attacking things that pose no threat to themselves, as well as attacking each other for seemingly no reason. Despite their aggressive traits however, those Blobcats who were born into the same colony form extremely tight-knit bound, making a Blobcat move heaven and earth to protect their tribe members.

As previously mentioned, Blobcats form large colonies, allowing them to give off an intimidation factor to other larger predators that may want to attack an individual Blobcat. These colonies can grow extremely large, with the largest known colony spanning around two hundred thousand individual Blobcats, located in western Ruhiel. During Haven's winter months, the Blobcat breeding migration begins, meaning that Blobcat colonies begin moving towards other colonies of similar size. After the mating migration is complete, a Blobcat will take around eleven standard months to give birth, and will typically have a litter of two individual Blobcats.

Canine Mammalian Fauna

A white-colored male Pelagus Wolf.

Pelagus Wolf: Overview

The Pelagus Wolf is a common species of predatory canine mammalian species native to both the many temperate forest strung across Haven, as well as the cold and icy regions of the planet. They are amongst the most common species of wolf on Haven, with a theorized global population of around three million and can be found in small quantities almost anywhere, however a good rule of thumb would be that the farther out you go from temperate or icy climates, the less Pelagus Wolves you will encounter.

As they are fairly common species, the Pelagus Wolf is a relatively famous species of canine across Haven's many diverged cultures, appearing in many pieces of cultural art and iconography, mostly due to the large main that surrounds their face being seen as a symbol for power, with various powerful groups and families across Haven adopting the Pelagus Wolf as their official insignia.

Pelagus Wolf: Physical

The Pelahus Wolf shares many of the inherit baseline physical traits found in all canine species across planet Haven. They have a quadruped build, with two front facing eyes, a slanted snout, and two ears on the sides of their head. Their elongated mouths are filled with numerous, razor sharp teeth, with an adult Pelagus Wolf containing around sixty-two individual teeth. Each tooth is specially designed to rip and shred through prey, and their jaws have been evolved to be able to clamp down upon them with great force, reaching conducive forces up to a thousand pounds per square inch, making the Pelagus Wolf one of the most powerful species of canine on the planet in terms of biting power.

The skin of the Pelagus Wolf is extremely tough, evolved to be able to withstand great amounts of kinetic forced inflicted upon it thanks to the harshness of many of their respective native environments, along with offering protection against any rival predator species. Along with their naturally hardened skin, the Pelagus Wolf is also covered in a thick coat of fur, comprising numerous individual strains of hair. This fur coat is specially developed to withstand the harsh climates of their native icy environments, allowing a Pleagus Wolf to endure extremely cold temperatures, reaching all the way down to a frigid negative seventeen degrees Celsius, however as the Pelagus Wolves spread themselves to other, more diverse areas of climate, this is no longer needed in some, leading to select Pleagus Wolves within said regions to be born with thinner fur coats. Along with offering protection from the cold, the Pleagus Wolf's fur coat is also used to entice a mate, in a manner similar to some bird species, with those who have larger, more colorful and soft fur coats having a better chance of securing mate.

Their senses of sight, sound, and smell are extremely adept, being able to see far into the distance, with a max vision range of around three kilometers ahead. Their hearing on the other hand is even more impressive. being able to hear almost anything occurring within two kilometer, three hundred and sixty degree radius around them, As well, their sense of smell has been finely tuned to pick up even the most minute smells that may pick up the Pleagus Wolf's attention, such as the scent of a respective prey species they may be currently hunting. All of these combined have made the Pleagus Wolf one of the most effective predator species across the whole of planet Haven.

Despite their impressive senses and physical abilities, the Pleagus Wolf lacks great feats of speed, as their massive bodies do not allow them to run as fast as some of their contemporaries, only clocking in at a maximum speed of around twenty-five kilometers per standard hour. As a result, the Pelagus Wolf mostly relies on its other senses for hunting and defending itself.

Pelagus Wolf: Behavior

The bassline behavioral traits of the Pelagus wolf can be described as very alert, and carious, as no Pelagus Wolf will ever take any action without first taking every precaution beforehand, in case of any nearby rival predators who may me altered to their presence. Along with their cautious nature, the Pelagus Wolf is often times very territorial solitary, almost never allowing any other member of their kind to encroach upon their respective territory, with the exception of those of the opposite gender during their mating season.

As they hunt, a Pelaus Wolf ensure that each and every possible escape route a potential prey animal may employ has been eliminated, usually preferring to corner prey against wall-like structures or thick tree lines. How it decides its respective prey is usually determined by the size of an animal, and as the Pelagus Wolf is fairly large, numerous types of animal is seen as a potential source of food by them, however due to their intelligence, numerous hazards species of animal, such as those who are poisonous will be avoided.

"The Wendstone Wolf, one of Haven's most majestic and rare creatures. I've only had the pleasure of coming into contact with these magnificent beasts only once, which was when I was crossing the Themeltin Badlands in northern Bariquel. The day was cold, and I was taking extra care to not fall to my untimely death within the many crags in the maze of scars that were beneath me. As I wandered, I came across this majestic white-colored wolf. She was magnificent and gigantic. As she starred, I felt my heart began to quicken, for I surely felt as if she would pounce, but she would only watch as I made my approach, never moving an inch. Truly I was blessed to experience such a moment."-William Tancard's Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Wendstone Wolf: Overview

The Wendstone Wolf are a rare species of predatory canine mammal native to cold, rocky outcroppings and are most commonly found on the continent of Bariquel. They are among the rarest species of their respective family of Canis Lupis on planet Haven, with a global population of only around one thousand five hundred known individual wolves. As well, they are considered to be one of the largest species of canine on the planet.

Due to their rarity, they are regarded as a protected species by the Haven's Nature Conservation Department , meaning that any hunting or endangerment of the animal's natural habitat is strictly prohibited. Along with their rarity, the Wendstone Wolf is a cultural icon to many, standing as one of the most culturally significant canine species of planet Haven.

Wendstone Wolf: Physical

The Wendstone Wolf's baseline physical structure and appearance is very akin to that of many other canine species on Haven. They have a quadruped build, with two front facing eyes, and a large, slanted snout on the front of their face. They have elongated mouth filled with around forty-two razor sharp teeth, allowing them to shred their prey's flesh with ease. Along with this, the Wendstone Wolf's teeth are specially designed to shred through thick rocks as they make their dens within thick rocky outcroppings. and stand at an average height of around six feet (one meter) and an average weight of around one hundred and eighty-nine pounds, (eighty-five kilograms)

They're bones are extremely durable and flexible, as the Wendstone Wolf needs to traverse very dangerous and craggy outcroppings of rock which sometimes form into labyrinthine mazes of canyons. With they're powerful bone structure, they are able to withstand falls from great heights and walk away relatively unscathed, while the flexibility of their bones, combined with the great muscle strength of their hindlegs, allow a Wendstone Wolf to jump over thirteen feet vertically, and over thirty-seven feet horizontally, allowing them to easily leap across large gaps.

The senses of a Wendstone Wolf are also specially developed to be able to locate prey and optimal hunting locations among the confusing layout of their respective natural habitat. With their honed eyes, a Wendstone Wolf is able to see several kilometers in a distance, and they use this to be able to locate prey deep within small crags, nooks and crannies, jump down to the prey, then jump back atop to the surface. While their ears have evolved to be able to pickup small vibrations deep within the ground, to also assist in the hunting of prey. Their noses are also developed in a similar manner, being able to pick up the faintest of scent underneath the rocks to determine the exact location of prey, as well as the respective species they belong to.

A rather unique trait of the Wendstone Wolf compared to other canine species on Haven is the texture in which their fur takes. Rather then having a soft, hair-like feeling, a Wendstone Wolf's fur feels like small pebbles and other rocky materials, giving it a very rough and grainy texture. With this fur, a Wendstone Wolf can withstand the many small pebbles and rocks that are flung towards them during the more windy days and nights of their respective native environment. The eternal organs of the Wendstone Wolf are also specially developed to withstand the harsh environment.

Wendstone Wolf: Behavior

The Wendstone Wolf is a very calm and collected creature, often times pursuing prey in a very calculated manner, keeping watch over the unfortunate creature they have chosen, searching for the slightest sign of weakness in its guard. Once it detects an opening, it will pounce upon its prey with great speed and power, tearing it to shreds. If a creature is deemed to much of a threat, or too much effort to take down, then the Wendstone Wolf will simply ignore them and continue onward.

Along with their calm nature when hunting, the Wendstone Wolf is very calm and calculated in all aspects of life, always searching for the optimal way in doing anything from crossing the triecious landscape of their native environment, to locating precious sources of fresh water. Whenever a Wendstone Wolf is fortunante enough as to encounter another one of their kind, they will enter what's known to the Haven populace as a "welcoming ritual," which in-turn involves the two to bow their heads at one another, then proceed to examine the other, then wander off back to a different location.

Wendstone Wolves are very solitary creatures, often times spending their entire lives by their lonesome, many times living a full life without even mating once, however this is not always by choice as the Wendstone Wolf population is so low it is often times difficult for two compatible partners to be able to come into contact with each other. Whenever a Wendstone Wolf is so lucky to encounter a mate, then the two respective Wolves will spend the remainder of their lives together, having several litters of pups together in a shared rocky den of their creation. Typically, a female Wendstone Wolf will have litters of three to six pups, and it will typically take around sixteen standard years to reach maturity, as the Wendstone Wolf is long lived for a canine species. Once a Wendstone Wolf reaches maturity, it will depart from its mother and father, then begin to hunt and search for their own mate among the endless rocky outcroppings they call home.

Ursidae Mammalian Fauna

A wild Mini Grizzly.

Mini Grizzly: Overview

The Mini Grizzly is a common species of Ursidae (bear) organisms found across the many temperate forests and planes of Haven. They have a global population of around two hundred million and can often times be found in small quantities in almost any temperate area should one search hard enough. Their name derives from their appearance, looking like a rounded, miniature version of the "Ursus arctos," or more commonly known as "Grizzly Bear" species of Ursidae. Thanks to their large population. the Mini Grizzly has become an integral part in many ecosystems across the planet, serving as a major food source for many predatory species, as well as a natural grazer to prevent overflow of invasive flora species.

Due to their commonality, as well as their natural non-hostile nature, the Mini Grizzly is a very famous creature across the many different cultures spread across planet Haven, often times being kept as pets by the planet's populace as they are fairly low maintenance and rather docile. Due to this, a large percentage of the Mini Grizzly's population is domesticated, however a large amount of the creature can still be seen in the wild. As a result of their popularity, the Mini Grizzly is a major focal point in many pieces of cultural art and iconography, along with the species being given a fairly large global population due to being bred by various individual pet owners.

Mini Grizzly: Physical

The Mini Grizzly has a small, quadruped build with a rounded shape, growing at an average height and length of around one and a half feet (0.4572 meters) and an average weight of around fifty-two pounds, (26 kilograms) Their bodies are covered in a thick layer of fur that can vary in color from tan, brown, gray, black and white, with varying patterns depending on each Mini Grizzly in question. Having an average natural lifespan of around fifteen standard years, it will typically take around a single standard year for a Mini Grizzly to reach adulthood from birth.

Unlike most prey species of Haven, the Mini Grizzy has two front-facing eyes would more typically find on predator species. It evolved with said eyes to be able to witness oncoming threats from far distances, as the Mini Grizzly's main predators are typically belonging to animals who are able to run at incredible speeds. They have an average sight range of around seven kilometers in a distance, allowing them to be able to see almost anything coming towards them, though this doesn't always mean they'll be able to avoid said oncoming object or creature.

Along with their front-facing eyes, the overall head sculpt of the Mini Grizzly is also in-line with other predator Ursidae species found on Haven, having a rounded head with a nose at the center, and two small ears located at the top of their head. Their hearing range is fairly mundane when compared to their impressive eye sight, only being able to hear sounds in fairly close proximity, giving any predator obscured from the Mini Grizzly's sight ample chances at attacking them. Their sense of smell has been finely tuned to detect optimal vegetation for the Mini Grizzly to consume, typically searching out berries filled with nutrients and or a lot of liquid, though it will often times settle for grass or flowers to eat should they contain a large amount of water within them.

Their mouths very atypical for most Ursidae species do not contain sharpened teeth, and instead have around fourteen individual square-shaped teeth one would find on various rodent mammalian organisms. The Mini Grizzly uses these specially developed teeth to grind the endless amounts of vegetation it consumes every day, with a single Mini Grizzly being able to eat up to fifteen times it's own body weight, allowing it to have massive reserves of caloric energy. The Mini Grizzly also relies on its teeth for the hollowing out of trees for its nests, using its powerful saw-like jaw to grind through thick tree trunks and creating a safe hollowed out area.

Their small legs have evolved to be able to have a large amount of muscle mass for the comparatively small size of each individual leg, as to allow the Mini Grizzly the ability to leap great horizontal distances, being able to launch them selves up to ten feet away from their original position, then quickly continue onward. Along with the impressive leaping abilities their muscle strength allows them, the Mini Grizzly has a vast amount of stamina and strain resistance, evolved to ensure the respective Mini Grizzly is able to continuously leap away from any would be pursuer.

Mini Grizzly: Behavior

The Mini Grizzly's behavior usually depends as to if it is either tamed or wild. A wild Mini Grizzly are typically extremely cautious, timid and easy to startled, jumping away from even the slightest of out of the norm sounds, and since the Mini Grizzly is a favorite food source of many predator species, this is a fairly useful survival strategy for them. Along with their overly cautious nature, the Mini Grizzly will often times remain within the same area of their birth for the entirety of their respective life, only venturing further out in search for a mate during breeding season.

Wild Mini Grizzlys exist in small packs, often times referred to as "tribes," usually consisting of around ten or more individual bears, though larger tribes of up to a hundred Mini Grizzlys have been known to exist in certain areas. Despite the name, there is no arranged hierarchy within a Mini Grizzly tribe, with no central leader or any sort of powerbase. Instead, each member ensures that the collective young of the tribe remains sheltered and protected from any threat, be them predator or from the environment. Tribes live in large nests constructed by its members within the hollowed out trunk of large trees, typically those belonging to the Haven Oak or Haven Pine families, though they may use any kind of tree provided that it has the requisite size needed for their respective tribe. Within the nest, various small chambers are constructed, each with a designated purpose, ranging from food storage, to waste removal, and bedding areas for the young and their parents.

Tamed Mini Grizzlys are fairly different from their wild counterparts. For instance, typically pet Mini Grizzlys will be much more calm and will allow for other creatures to approach them, even other animal species who would normally be their predators provided they are also owned by their respective owner. Along with their clam nature, they are often times very loyal pets, provided they are well kept and fed.

"During my trek across the southern continent of Vanriel, I vividly remember when a group of Snow Cub began to jump towards me, kicking at my legs. And, while they don't look it, are very strong, it managed to cut large gashes in my legs. Sadly, this meant I had to defend myself, and I began to kick them away from me, most likely injuring some. It's sad that something so adorable can be so aggressive." -William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Snow Cub: Overview

Snow Cubs are a common species of predatory Ursidae (bear) organisms native to the colder regions of Haven, such as the snowy continents of Vanriel and Ruhiel. They have a global population of around one hundred million, and they can be found almost within any cold region on the planet, often times existing in large numbers due to their habit of creating large Snow Cub colonies. They resemble a miniature, rounded brown bear, making a Snow Cub appear like a bear cub throughout their entire life.

Due to their commonality and appearance, they are a fairly famous animal among Haven's intelligent population, with the creature often times being kept as a pet, though they require a large amount of upkeep, a cold natural environment, and an official license to own due to their predatory nature.

Snow Cub: Physical

The Snow Cub has a quadrupedal build, growing at an average height and length of around two feet (0.6096), and an average weight of fifty-eight pounds (26.3084 kilograms). Like most predator species, they have two front facing eyes, two ears on the sides of their heads, and a nose located at the front of their face. It will typically take around three standard years for a Snow Cub to fully grow into adulthood.

Their bodies are very rounded and covered in thick layers of fur, as they require a great amount of inclination in order to remain warm in the respective environment they inhabit. Despite their rounded shape, the Snow Cub are extremely fast, being able to run at speeds up to twenty-seven kilometers an hour, being able to easily evade any would be attacker, as well as allowing them to catch up to their prey very easily. Snow Cubs are able to move so quickly due to massive amounts of muscles within their small legs, allowing them to basically leap to their destination. As a result, they do not typically walk, instead, they hop along the icy surface and are able to do so for great amounts of time, traversing large distances with minimal effort.

The Snow Cub is effectively blind, as their eyes are only used to see objects in their immediate vicinity. Their other senses of smell and hearing also do not fair much better then their sight, only being able to smell and hear things in their immediate vicinity. Instead of these senses, they rely on a strange seismic sensors located at the base of their feet. These sensors allow a Snow Cub a rough estimation of the area around them, as well as giving them a view of what's underneath the snow beneath themselves. With this, an individual Snow Cub will be able to detect small prey animals that burrow across the snow, then attack the unsuspecting creature.

Their legs are also well adapted to digging the snow beneath them, as their respective prey lies underneath it. They are able to dig across the snow with such speed and efficiency, that they are able to craft elaborate mazes spanning several meters. This ability also assists them in the consumption of prey, as they use their powerful legs to kill their target, as well as serving as an effective tool for defense.

Snow Cub: Behavior

Snow Cubs are a very bold creature, often times rushing head long in danger and not have any regard when it comes to something clearly far beyond them in terms of size and strength. As a result, they often times are killed due to this. Along with being headstrong, the Snow Cub is also very territorial when it comes to their respective area, whose borders can vary widely depending on the individual Snow Cub in question, and will often times attack any foreign Snow Cub that approaches them.

However, they often times form life long bonds with their mate, and will live with them for their entire life. As a result, they and their mate will create elaborate and well crafted tunnels and mazes underneath the snow, forming labyrinth-like patterns that serve as their respective nests These nests are crafted with so much minute detail, it often times appear as if it was constructed by an intelligent individual. Within these nests, various chambers are located throughout them, which are used for food storage, waste rooms, litter rooms, and even decoy rooms to throw off predators.

Suyak Mammalian Fauna

"The Quagselsuyak once served as the legacy of a forgotten family of creature, as they were at the time the only remaining species of the "Suyak" family of mammals before we came along and started to replenish their number. When I first came across the creature in the icy shores of northern Ruhiel, there were a herd of hundreds of them, moving like a mass of white cloth across the snow-covered ground. It was overwhelming to my vision, and it took me several moments to realize that it was not a singular creature, but rather an immense cloud of large gargaituin beasts."--William Tancard's Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Quagselsuyak: Overview

The Quagselsuyak are a rare species of mammal, native exclusively to the cold shoreline of the northern icy continent of Ruhiel. They are the only naturally remaining species of their respective family, the "Suyak" family of mammals that were once spread across the planet during Haven's "Mid Regrowth Period." The Suyak's closest analogue would be that of the "Rhinocerotidae" family of mammals. They only have a global population of around six hundred, and are spread few and far between from each other.

Due to their rarity, and the extremity of their native environment, they are a fairly obscure species among the many mammal species of planet Haven, holding very little mainstream knowledge among the planet's intelligent inhabitants. As well, they are regarded as a protective species by the Haven's Nature Conservation Department and hunting or endangering of the animal is strictly prohibited, and punishments are inflicted with great prejudice and force. Attempts to breed the species back into prominence, as well as cloning of the species are ongoing.

Quagselsuyak: Physical

The Quagselsuyak baseline physical structure is a large, quadrupedal terrestrial mammal, with massive legs standing at an average height of around sixteen feet, (Four meters) and an average weight of around two thousand pounds. Their thick layers of fur obscure their physical appearance, but they resemble a mixture of common species of equine and rhinos. It will typically take around ten standard years for a Quagselsuyak to fully grow into adulthood, and a female Quagselsuyak will typically have a litter of around five individual young.

Their large bodies are covered in long, silk-like fur that continuously grows as the respective Quagselsuyak ages, leaving elderly Quagselsuyak to have long fur that drags along the ground as the move, as well as completely obscuring the creature from view, making them appear as a quadrupedal mass of cloth. Due to their large size, the Quagselsuyak are extremely slow, only being able to move at a maximum speed of around fifteen kilometers. However what they lack in speed, they more then make up for in terms of power and defense, as they are able to crush almost anything beneath their massive feet, while their skin has a tensile strength of around three thousand pounds per square inch, making an individual Quagselsuyak a walking tank.

Quagselsuyak have two front facing eyes, two large ears on the sides of their head, and a large bulbous nose at the front of their face. Their vision range is very impressive, being able to see up to sixty kilometers in a distance, as well as being able to see through the thick amounts of fur that typically obscure their respective eyes. Their hearing range however is fairly unimpressive, only being able to hear things in close radius around themselves. Their large noses have evolved to be well adapted to pick up minute aromas within water, as the respective flora and fauna they fee upon mainly live within the waters of the frozen shorelines the Quagselsuyak inhabit.

The Quagselsuyak, as an extension of the family they belong to, hold the rather unique trait of controlling the temperature within their very blood through the use of special designed organs specifically evolved to do so. With this, they are able to survive extreme cold temperatures, heating their blood up to one hundred degrees Celsius, though they usually do not require such extreme heats. This would also allow an individual Quagselsuyak to cool their blood up to negative thirty-seven degrees Celsius if they ever entered within a hot environment, though since they exist within a colder region, they do not need this to survive.

Quagselsuyak: Behavior

The Quagselsuyak typically have a shared behavior of aimlessly exploring and walking across the southern Ruhiel coastlines, searching for food within the shallows of the coasts respective waters. They diet consists of the many species of seaweed that grow on the sands of the shoreline, as well as small fish species that swim in the shallow waters. They are a herd animal, meaning they travel in a herd, but as there are only around six hundred, there are only around twelve Quagselsuyak herds known to exist, with the largest of which only consisting of around a hundred individual Quagselsuyaks.

They are very calm and slow creatures, often times lacking much urgency in their actions and emotions. Whenever a creature attempts to attack a Quagselsuyak then they will keep a clam demeanor and counter attack the respective predator with incredibly power, often times crushing the individual animal with great ease due to their incredible size and strength.

Like many other species on Haven, the Quagselsuyak form life-long bonds with their respective mate, with the two of them being inseparable throughout their entire lives. To find a mate, a Quagselsuyak will leave their respective herd, and begin to traverse to another. Then, when the two meet, a strange sort of: "meeting ritual" will commence, and the two will almost have a strange form of: "conversation," and at the end of this exchange, they will both decide which of their respective herds the two of them will return to and have their litter within. Quagselsuyak also form strong bonds with their mothers and fathers, as well as their respective young. Even when a Quagselsuyak reaches adulthood, they will remain in the same herd as their parents throughout their life, and their lineage will continue to do the same.

Turdidae Aves Fauna

"Pyreen are simultaneously the most adorable, and intimidating bird I can think of that inhabits Haven. Seeing a nest of baby Pyreen with their attentive mother is some of the most heartwarming sights one can think of. While on the other hand, the massive clouds of Pyreen, with thousands of individual birds can feel like an prelude to some apocalypse."- William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A Pyreen seen perched on a small branch.

Pyreen: Overview

The Pyreen are an extremely common species of Aves organisms native to the countless temperate forests spread across the whole of planet Haven. They resemble a mixture of the bird families of Turdus migratorius (robin) and Trochilidae (hummingbird) native to several planets such as Earth . They are a prey species, often serving as an integral food source for numerous predator species, making the Pyreen a fundamental pillar of any ecosystem they are apart of. They are one of the most common species of bird on Haven, with a global population of around four billion individual birds.

Due to their prominence on Haven, Pyreen's are very famous among the planet's populace, as an individual will typically see several Pyreen birds each day. They are also used as pets very often, with their minimalist upkeep they are favored by many bird keepers.

Pyreen: Physical

Pyreen birds resemble your typical Turdus migratorius bird, with their front facing beak, and their two brownish colored eyes on the sides of their small heads. However unlike most Turdus migratorius bird species, the Pyreen fly through flapping their wings forwards and backwards like typical Trochilidae bird species, making them extremely fast when compared to other bird species of their classification, with a typical flying speed of around sixty kilometers an hour.

Like many species of bird, the Pyreen are an omnivorous species, typically feeding on the many leaves of the forests they inhabit, as well as small worm and insect species that inhabit the dirt beneath them. Luckily for them, Pyreen only require a relatively small amount of food to propel themselves, only needing to eat one leaf or insect for the entire day, making each individual Pyreen be able to find adequate amounts of food very easily.

Pyreen birds have a very impressive eye sight, being able to see and subsequently react to things on bound towards them from up to three kilometers away, being able to anticipate would be attackers extremely easily. In fact they are so well adapted to evade danger, that only predator species specifically evolved to be able to catch them are the only ones that can actually use the Pyreen bird as a food source. While they hear with a strange form of echo location, having specially developed feathers designed to detect strange vibrations from nearby trees and the one they are currently standing upon.

A pregnant female Pyreen will typically lay a clutch of around sixty-two individual eggs, taking usually around three standard weeks to hatch, leading to their massive population counts. A Pyreen will remain in the nest with their mother and father for about four standard weeks after their birth, then they will begin to take wing and leave the nest to find their own mate, beginning the cycle anew.

Their bodies are covered in numerous small feathers, with typically each only being the size of a couple centimeters and a single Pyreen having hundreds of them, making the bird appear to have thicker feathers then it actually has. These feathers can have a dazzling array of vibrant colors depending on the breed of Pyreen in question, with some having bright reds, blues, greens and oranges. However most commonly they will typically have a whitish-grey coloring. Typically, male Pyreen will have brighter colors then females, as their feathers serve as their main tool to attract a mate.

Pyreen: Behavior

Most Pyreen have an inherent behavior of aggression towards other species of birds across Haven, as they often have to compete with them for territory, causing many to attack any other species of bird as soon as they see them, which unfortunately causes them to attack birds that are much larger then themselves, causing many to die rather prematurely as a result. However, they will often also attack in large swarms of several individual Pyreen, engulfing and overrunning the target with sheer number.

They typically live in very temperate areas of Haven, and unlike many species of their like, they do not migrate during the colder months of Haven's standard year. Instead, the Pyreen bird will seemingly hibernate, creating thick nests out of good in salting woods such as twigs created from Haven Oak trees. As they hibernate, their bodies will begin to shut down, entering an odd form of suspended animation, only awaking once the spring months begin to shine through.

Pyreen are extremely social, and it is very rare to find one by its lonesome as Pyreen travel in large groups of hundreds to deter would be attackers. These Pyreen colonies can sometimes hold thousands of individual birds, forming massive clouds of birds moving across the skies and giving off a very intimidating presence to other sky dwelling creatures.

A rather unique trait Pyreen have among other bird species of Haven is their strange marriage-like relationships with those they choose to mate with. Typically, a male and female Pyreen will remain together for their entire natural lifespans, and they will have and raise several clutches of eggs, having about five hundred and fifty-seven individual birds during their lives.

Thicket Wing: Overview

The Thicket Wing is a common species of Aves organisms native to many different regions across planet Haven, including temperate forests, plains, tundras, deserts and savannas. They resemble the Turdus migratorius family of bird that can be found on various other planets such as Earth . Their names are derived from their choice in nesting grounds, usually creating small colonies of birds inside thick bushes, small tress, or brambles. Thicket Wing birds are a prey species and are often times an essential part of the respective ecosystem they are apart of, serving as an integral food source for numerous predator species. They are amongst some of the most populace species of bird across the entirety of planet Haven, with an estimated global population of around two billion individual birds.

Due to their commonality across Haven, they often times appear in many pieces of cultural art and iconography, as well as being used in everyday speech by many of the planet's sapient population. Along with their mainstream fame, the Thicket Wing birds often times labeled as a pest species as they have been known to decimate large crop yields by local farmers, allowing for the free hunting of Thicket Wing birds by private citizens world wide.

Thicket Wing: Physical

The Thicket Wing bird's baseline biology and physical appearance shares numerous similarities to the many other species of Turdidae bird found across the whole of Haven. They have a bipedal build and stand at a typical height of around three inches (7 centimeters). They have two front facing eyes, which are typically a bright yellow in color, and a small front facing beak, which the Thicket Wing bird uses to burrow within tree branches and extract prey, normally small insects and worms.

Phasian: Behavior

"The Sparkle Feather has to be one of the most gorgeous creatures to call planet Haven home, and that's saying quite a lot. The brilliant vibrant colors and patterns their feathers can take is truly amazing, as I have so far been unable to find two Sparkle Feathers that look identical to one another. Even despite how common they are, I always find myself entranced by their magnificent colors."-William Tancard's Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Sparkle Feather: Overview

The Sparkle Feather are a common species of bird that are members of the Turdus migratorius (robin) native to several planets across the cosmos. They can be found in many of the temperate forests spread all across planet Haven, and have a global population of around twenty-five million individual Sparkle Feather birds. Despite their large population counts, it is often times hard to find large groups of the bird, as they are solitary species, often times existing on their own for their entire lives, with the exception of breeding season.

They are famed for the vibrant colors their feathers are able to display, making the Sparkle Feather bird a large piece of cultural art and iconography across Haven's many cultures. As a result, many specific cities and other settlements have outlawed the hunting of the Sparkle Feather bird, as well as keeping one as a pet, though the latter is not officially recognized as a global law across Haven.

A red colored female Sparkle Feather bird.

Sparkle Feather: Physical

Sparkle Feather birds baseline physical structure resembles most common species of Turdus migratorius, or more commonly known as "robin" birds. They have a bipedal build, with a long and relatively tall body, standing at a height of around twenty-four inches (sixty centimeters.) All across their bodies, many soft, fur-like feathers are located. These feathers can vary in color widely, and can have a dazzling array of vibrant shades, from seep sapphire-blues, to piercing ruby-reds and emerald greens. Sparkle Feather birds' feathers have such a inquire and vibrant pattern, that the species is sometimes unofficially refereed to as the: "Snowflake Bird," as no two Sparkle Feather birds will share an exact pattern, though this isn't true as they can share a pattern, however it is exceedingly rare.

At the front of their face they have a small, black-colored beak that the Sparkle Feather uses to grab and consume prey. These beaks, while not being very strong, are able to grip prey like a vise, almost akin to that of of opposable thumbs. At the sides of their head, they have two, black-colored eyes that have a texture much alike to that of precious gems, such as rubies. These eyes have a rather unique trait among the many species of birds of Haven, as they function like compound eyes of insects, allowing a Sparkle Feather a three hundred and sixty degree radius around them, as well as a vision range of around half a kilometer.

Strangely, their respective hearing organ are located at the top of the Sparkle Feather's head. This external ear spans the diameter of the head, and is obscured by the Sparkle Feather bird's respective feathers, and due to its dimensions for the size of its body, it is able to hear almost anything near it. These ears are prone to failure however as a Sparkle Feather, with their hearing most likely being the first thing to fail as they reach their elder years, leaving many older Sparkle Feather birds completely deaf.

They are incredibly fast, with an individual Sparkle Feather bird being able to fly to speeds up to fifty kilometers an hour, making an individual Sparkle Feather bird appear like a vibrantly colored blur of light by any species that lack the developed eyes to see them cross the sky. Their are able to achieve such speeds due to the amount of muscles located within their wings, as well as the aerodynamic build of each of their feathers, allowing one to catch wind currents very easily. The speed in which they travel requires an extremely large amount of energy however, causing them to have to often land and catch their breath, as well as refill their caloric energy reserves. This, combined with their impressive senses of sight and sound turn the Sparkle Feather bird into an extremely effective hunter among the species of their weight class.

Their diet consists of the countless energy-rich leaves that are spread across the trees they perch upon in their native forests, as well as the many species of worms and insects on the ground. Thanks to their beaks, as well as their incredible speeds, along with their impressive vision, they are one of the most impressive hunters in the Aves kingdom on Haven, being able to swoop down and instantly grab their prey.

Sparkle Feather: Behavior

Sparkle Feather birds are often times a very calculated creature, never wasting any amount of energy in even the smallest of actions, as they require a full reserve at all times to traverse the sky at full speed. While perched, the individual Sparkle Feather bird will remain as still as a statue, only slightly moving their head in accordance to noises it hears, and once it locates prey, they will instantly dive down towards said prey, and then capture it in their powerful beaks.

They are very solitary, often times living several kilometers away from many other Sparkle Feather bird, as they do so intentionally in order to not compete with any other birds for prey, making it very rare to see two of them in the same area. However, during their respective mating season, Sparkle Feathers will begin to search for a mate, emitting a loud and: "metal scrapping" sound from their beaks to locate one. Afterwards, the male will return to their respective original area, while the female will then create a nest and incubate her clutch of eggs.

Trochilidae Aves Fauna

"The Arndt are a simple creature; but that does not take away from them in the slightest. I often times found the most simpliest of things during my journey to be the most spectacular. It reminded me that I am but a simple creature, inhabiting this glorious land we call Haven. They also display a fairly dazzling array of aesthetically beautiful shades of light and dark blues. Whenever I saw them cross the sky, I took a moment to appreciate the blue light that would filter from Hope through their respective feathers."--William Tancard's Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A blue-colored Arndt bird seen drinking water within a Haven Oak tree.

Arndt: Overview

The Arndt are a common species of Trochilidae (humming bird) bird species native to the many temperate forests strung about planet Haven. They have a global population of around five hundred and fifty million individual birds, giving them a massive population count, as well as making them a fundamental pillar of many ecosystems across Haven. They are most famous for the unique way they gain sustenance, as they require the water within the trees they perch upon.

As they are fairly common around Haven, many of the planet's populace leave out specific feeders for the Arndt bird, filled with liquid gathered from various trees. This practice is so common, that the Arndt almost entirely rely on the generosity of that of Haven's intelligent populace, and it has been theorized that if all people stopped putting out feeders, then the Arndt would see a significant population decrease, so the practice is greatly encouraged.

Arndt: Physical

The Arndt share many physical traits with that of many Trochilidae (humming bird) species across Haven, though there are a few physically unique features of the Arndt bird. They are typically fairly large compared to many other humming bird species, standing at a height and length of around seven inches. Despite their larger size however, they still retain the lightweight nature most humming bird species do. They also share the unique way most Trochilidae fly, as they flap their wings forwards and backwards to create small currents, allowing the Arndt to fly very fast for its size, clocking at speeds up to thirty kilometers an hour.

They have two small, pinhole-like eyes on the sides of their head, these eyes are very small, so much so that it's often hard for one to see them on first glance. The Arndt bird evolved these eyes as such to be able to see how much water is located within a respective tree, as they only receive sustenance from said water. These eyes are so piercing, they can see microscopic, minute detail in the wood of a respective tree, though these have the disadvantage of making them piratically blind when it comes to anything on a larger scale coming towards them, making the Arndt bird easy prey for many predators.

As previously mentioned, the Arndt live off of the water within the barks of trees such as Haven Oak and Haven Pine trees. This is because the water stored within these respective tree species are rich with a specific type of glucose that the Arndt bird has specifically evolved to consume. The amount of caloric energy this special glucose gives them is astonishing, but due to the massive amount of energy required to propel their fairly large body they require a vast amount of of the liquid each day.

They have specially developed beaks designed to be able to pierce the wood of these specific types of trees, with thousands of small, finely tuned bristles located all across their beak which allow them to separate the bark with ease, and once it enters within the tree's structure, their long tongue will begin to lap up the liquid within. This beak is so specifically designed, that they are unable to be used in any other particle way, but as they only require the liquid within Haven Oaks and Pines, they do not need it for any other purpose.

They are covered in numerous fur-like feathers, giving the Arndt bird a somewhat fluffy looking appearance. These feathers can display a wide variety of colors, though most commonly, they will appear a sky-blue coloring, very much the same hue the skies above they inhabit. These feathers are greatly insulated as well, giving an individual Arndt bird a great amount of warmth, which is especially useful during migratory season during Haven's autumn months.

Arndt: Behavior

The Arndt will spend the majority of their day lapping up the large amounts of liquid they needs, and during the night, they will return to a specifically designed nest it creates at the beginning of the spring months in their respective areas. These nets are typically created from small twigs, branches, and leaves and have an average diameter of around fifteen inches, giving them a fair amount of room. They are also typically located on tall branches, and areas in which the nest is obscured, so that they are not spotted and or attacked while the Arndt bird is asleep.

A rather unique trait of the Ardnt compared to most bird species across Haven is that both their migratory, and mating seasons occur at the same time. As they migrate, they will constantly and repeatedly emit a loud sound from their beaks in order to attract a mate, and once a mate is found at the end of the mass migration, the female will create her own respective nest for her clutch of eggs in the south, while the male will go off to forage in the newer area.

Gruiformes Aves Fauna

"Spear Crane colonies function like a miniature spartan society, with hundreds of walking troops equipped with large and sharp spears. They can easily decimate entire populations of smaller creatures, and often do so. As a result, they are sadly an envanse species that threatens many species of fish and other small aquatic creatures, and often times we must with a heavy heart, curb their growth. It's a shame, but it's the only viable option given to us currently."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A Spear Crane seen walking along the western Bariquel shorelines.

Spear Crane: Overview

The Spear Crane is a common species of semi-aquatic Gruidae (crane) birds native to the many temperate sandy beaches and shorelines located all across planet Haven. They have a global population of around, ten million individual birds and are often times found in large groups of hundreds or more. Their name derives from the way they hunt small fish along the shallow waters, spearing them through with their large beaks.

Due to their commonality, and their very effective way of hunting, the Spear Crane often times endangers many fish species that live in warm, shallow waters in near shore lines. As a result ,the Spear Crane has been labeled as an: "invasive species" in some areas of Haven, and special permits are handed out to select individuals to hunt the bird and control the population as to not allow them to endanger too many fish species.

Spear Crane: Physical

The Spear Crane has a baseline physical appearance much akin to that of the many other species of Gruidae (crane) birds located through out Haven, with an upright, bipedal build, and two large wings located at the sides of their bodies. However they are fairly small and light weight compared to most other crane species on Haven, only standing at an average height of around seventeen inches (forty-three centimeters), and an average weight of around fourteen pounds (six kilograms), making them one of the smallest and most lightweight species of crane in the world. It will typically take around half a standard year for a Spear Crane to fully develop into adulthood.

They, while having flyable wings, they are almost an entirely terrestrial and aquatic bird, as they often times just simply walk and or swim to their respective destination, only flying when they are endanger from an attacking predator. As a result, they are extremely fast runners and swimmers, being able to clock speeds up to thirty-five kilometers an hour at full speed. However the lack of flying also has the added effect of making their flight speed fairly unimpressive, only reaching speeds up to ten kilometers an hour, which is very slow compared to other crane bird species.

Spear Cranes do not have an exceptionally great sight or hearing range, only being to see up to half a kilometer away, as well as only being able to hear things relatively close by. However, what they lack in range they more then makeup for in precision, as the eyes and ears of an individual Spear Crane bird have evolved to be finely tuned to detect the most faint sights and sounds coming from the waters they patrol. A Spear Crane's eyes also have the unique function of being able to pierce through the dust and other debris that would otherwise obscure one's vision of the surface of the water.

Their feathers are extremely thin, with the exception of their wings, and often times there will be several Spear Crane's with patches of their bodies that lack any feathers, giving them a very patchy-looking appearance. These feathers also remain the same as they had the moment they hatched, with leading to the species haring a universal trait of thin feathers. Thanks to this, the Spear Crane are not able to live in colder regions, as they lack very sufficient inclination and would otherwise easily freeze.

As previously mentioned, their name derives from the long, spear-like beak they have at the center of their face, which the Spear Crane uses as a weapon to catch small species of fish that swim along the shallow, warm waters of various beaches and coastlines. Their beaks are extremely durable and sharp, and the individual Spear Crane is able to use them with great force, thanks to the many vertebra located at the base of their neck, striking at a target with great speed and forces up to three hundred pounds per square inch, almost functioning akin to that of a hydraulic press. As a result, the Spear Crane has one of the most powerful beaks among birds of their size, environment and likeness.

Spear Crane: Behavior

The Spear Crane share a universal behavior of walking along the shallow waters of a shoreline leading into the ocean, scanning their eyes across the water's surface to detect small prey. Once a Spear Crane pierces a fish they will then run to a designated location, then proceed to bury the respective fish under a thin layer of sand, then will return to the water to do so again. They will continue to do so for several hours, until' it begins to grow tired, then they will return to its designated spot and begin to feed on the various fish they caught, afterwards they then will bury the fish remaining back up and sleep in a spot relatively close by.

During breeding season, a male Spear Crane will begin to catch as many fish as they possibly can, often times extremely exerting themselves in the process. Once they gather a horde of fish of at least fifty, they will then attempt to locate a female Spear Crane by emitting a loud bellowing like cry. Once a female Spear Crane is located, the male will most likely have to fend off various other male Spear Crane suitors, and once a winner is determined, then the male will bring the female to his respective fish horde. Like most crane species, the two Spear Cranes will form a life long monogamous bond with each other, and will also have several clutches of eggs together, usually have around thirty-two individual clutches throughout their entire lives.

Lindwurm Draco Fauna

"The River Dragon, in my opinion, the most majestic of all of Haven's brilliant creatures. In comparison to any other lifeforms in their native habitats, they are almost like a God, as not a single being can contend with them in terms of speed and power. But despite this, they possess a calm and caring nature, never over stepping and only feeding when it requires sustenance. They are so wise, I sometimes I wonder if I discovered an intelligent species or not. Maybe next time I see one, I'll hand it an Alliance membership card."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A rare sighting of a male River Dragon, seen shooting up from the Mystia River on the Cerviel continent.

River Dragon: Overview

The River Dragon are an extremely rare aquatic Lindwurm Draco species native exclusively in fresh water rivers. They are one of the rarest creatures in all of Haven, with only one hundred River Dragons known to exist across the entire planet. They are also one of the largest, being the second largest animal to exist in Haven's freshwater bodies. Their name, unsurprisingly, is derived from their native environment, as they are only found in select fresh water rivers across the planet.

The few that are known to exist live solitary lives, often living millions of kilometers apart from each other. It remains unknown as to why River Dragons only exist in fresh water rivers, as they should be able to live within any body of fresh water. Thanks to their native environment, they are unmatched by any other fresh-water dwelling creature, meaning they have no competition.

River Dragon: Physical

The River Dragon is one of the most intimidating creatures of Haven, as their physical appearance is almost an exact mirror image to that of many depictions of dragons across human mythologies. They have two front facing eyes, and a large slanted snout. Along with their appearance, River Dragons are absolutely massive, with an average length of one hundred and twenty-eight feet (38 meters), and an average weight of around sixty-eight thousand pounds (30,844 kilograms). Male River Dragons will typically be smaller then their female counterparts and have to horns on the sides of their respective heads. The height of these horns and the number of branch horns vary depending on each male River Dragon in question, with the largest known being seventy-seven feet long.

Despite their large size, the River Dragon is able to move across their native river at incredible speeds, reaching up wards of sixty kilometers an hour, making them an unstoppable force to any who is unfortunate to be in the way. They are also able to maneuver extremely quickly as well, being able to turn on a moment's notice, making it nearly impossible to out swim them. They are able to contort themselves in almost any pattern as well,

Their abilities of sight are fairly impressive, with them being able to see about three kilometers in a distance, very similar to humans. These eyes glow with a distinctive piercing orange color through a process of bioluminescence, which is used to lure small prey into its grasp. This glow can be seen above the water, creating a dazzling display for those viewing it.

Strangely, the River Dragons seem to be deaf, as they lack any form of traditional ears. Instead, they rely on the large fin-like organisms on the sides of their heads, which function as a sort of sonar, much alike your typical bat species. The "hearing" range of these fins is almost unreal, uniformly stretching the entire length of their native river. This allows the individual River Dragon to have a complete picture of each and every organism in its home river, almost akin to a limited form of omniscience.

An adult River Dragon's mouth holds sixteen extremely sharp and durable teeth, with a biting force of around fifty thousand pounds per square inch, allowing an individual River Dragon to break through durable metals such as steel with relative ease. These teeth are extremely sharp thanks to the keratin that makes up their being, much alike the Ambrosia Alliance member species, the Ko'rr, though the River Dragon is much more powerful.

The scales that make up their body is very durable, taking around one hundred thousand pounds per square inch to begin to break through it, making it on level with that of steel. Thanks to this, the River Dragon's are neigh indestructible to any other fresh-water dwelling animal. The only thing that could in theory damage them is another River Dragon, but as they so rarely interact, no known conflicts have ever been recorded.

Like most aquatic Draco species, located deep within the River Dragon's body lies a specialized organ attuned to the very water the creature inhabits. Using said organ, the River Dragon is able to shoot a large jet of fresh water from their mouth, with enough force to split steel and devastate forests. This ability is more potent when used underwater as when the jet shoots, the entire river itself reacts, with the waters folding and flooding into the disturbance caused by the stream of liquid. While it posses this very powerful ability, the River Dragon only very rarely employs, usually only when they are engaged in combat with other River Dragons, and due to how sparsely located and sparsely populate they are, these encounters are extremely rare.

River Dragon: Behavior

The River Dragon's behavior is one of the most nuance examples in all of Haven. Each of the hundred known River Dragons seem to exhibit distinctive personalities, reacting to things in a way that is unique to them alone. Thanks to this, the River Dragon has been labeled as the fifth most intelligent fauna of Haven. Despite the variety in personality however, a handful of behavioral commonalities is known.

First and foremost, all River Dragons seem to share the want to live a a solitary life style. Individual River Dragons almost never interact with each other, instead remaining in their own respective rivers. Each River Dragon seems to only mate twice in their entire lifetimes, through a vast time frame of four hundred standard years, with a pregnant female River Dragon only laying one egg at a time. Unfortunately, River Dragon's seem to have a high mortality rate during their hatching, as more then sixty percent of all River Dragon eggs never hatch, leading to the minuscule population the species currently has.

River Dragon's also seem to have an innate understanding of the fragile balance of their native river's ecosystem. If one wanted to, they could consume the entire native population of a medium-sized river almost instantaneously, but due to their intelligence, they understand that they require a constant source of food to survive, letting other smaller species thrive all around them, only feeding to the point of near starvation. And when they do partake in food, they have the absolute minimal amount to survive. In rare cases, it has been observed that when a species in a river begins to overtake another, to the point of driving them away, the respective River Dragon will intervene, leveling out the rival species' population.

The strangest trait River Dragon's have been known to exhibit is an odd curiosity to creatures that dwell on land. Often times, if an animal or person walks towards the shoreline of a River Dragon's home river, then the dragon will pop its head out of the water and closely investigate them, often nudging them gently with its nose, however once said creature enters the river, it will no longer be interested, and begin to submerge back underneath the water. It remains unclear as to why it does this.

Diptera Insecta Fauna

"Masquerade Flies are always a joy to watch, it's almost like magic how well they are able to mimic the object they are standing on. I couldn't tell you the amount of times I jumped during my travels, watching leaves and other things suddenly sprout wings and fly away. I'm almost baffled they never made my hair turn grey." -William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Masquerade Fly: Overview

The Masquerade Fly is a common species of Diptera insect organsims native to the many temperate forests across planet Haven. They resemble your typical house fly and are a common food source for many species, making them an integral part to the ecosystem of any forest they are apart of.

Their name comes from their ability to instantly camouflage themselves with the same coloring and pattern of the surface they are currently standing on. The Masquerade Fly's global population is theorized to be around two hundred billion individual flies.

Masquerade Fly: Physical

As an insect, the Masquerade Fly has an arthropod body, with a frail exoskeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages. It has six small legs, two wings on its back, two compound eyes on the sides of its head, and two front facing antenna. They are two inches long (five centimeters) and have an average weight of three hundred milligrams. A Masquerade Fly will typically fully mature in just three standard days, and have a life span of three standard weeks, a fairly long time frame for insects

They are extremely fast, being able to fly from danger at incredible speeds of up to twenty miles per hour, though they are still often caught and eaten by predator species. Their abilities of movement on land however is far less impressive, only being able to move two miles per hour.

Due to their compound eyes, a Masquerade Fly is able to see with a full three hundred and sixty degree field and perceive the world at a speed of around two hundred and fifty hertz, allowing them to escape most slower moving things then it. The antenna located upon the front of their heads also allows the Masquerade Fly to sense things around them in three hundred sixty degree five foot radius, making them able to sense most oncoming dangers on approach, though things moving fairly fast can often strike before the Masquerade Fly has time to react.

Their abilities of camouflage are their main and primary strength, being able to almost instantaneously take the color, pattern and texture of any surface they are standing upon to the most minute detail. These camouflages work very well, with only species that specifically evolved to locate them being able to detect a Masquerade Fly, though they often times are killed by complete coincidence as an animal may crush them not knowing they were there to begin with.

Masquerade Fly: Behavior

The Masquerade Fly, like most insects will typically spend its entire life foraging for food and mating as much as it possibly can before it dies, with a single Masquerade Fly being able to reproduce more then one thousand times. its diet is exclusively made up of leaves from trees, and thanks to their native environments, they are able to have an infinite food supply.

They are very cautious, never coming anywhere near any living thing that's larger then itself, often camouflaging themselves whenever they sense the slightest change in the area around them. This cautious nature usually pays off, and a Masquerade Fly will typically live to see the end of their lives naturally.

Selachimorpha Ichthyoid Fauna

"Sand Sharks. Probably the one animal on Haven I can say I actually despise. Imagine my shock as while taking a nice stroll down the warm sands of the Auit-Islet, only to almost lose both of my legs from a beast that should never exist on land. There's not enough C-Units in the Universe to make me go back to that blasted island again."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

Sand Shark: Overview

The Sand Sharks are a rare species of terrestrial Ichthyoid (fish) native exclusively to the Auit-Islet of the Theltheim Isles. They resemble many shark species native to both Agyen, and Haven, and they are one of the only terrestrial sharks on Haven. They are very rare, with a global population of only around Five hundred, as well, they are only known to inhabit the small island of the Auit-Islet, and are not found anywhere else in the world. They have an appearance very similar to many different species of sharks, such as the Tiger Shark. They are a very aggressive predatory species, often feeding on any creature unfortunate enough to cross within their path.

Despite their low numbers, they are extremely infamous to the inhabitants of the Auit-Islet and the wider the Thelthiem Isles due to their fearful nature and behavior, making many weary of traversing the open sands of the island.

Sand Shark: Physical

Sand Sharks, while technically being a fish, actually live on land, but despite this, it has almost the same physiology to that of a sea-dwelling Icthyoid. They have two front facing eyes, a large mouth with twenty-eight razor sharp sets of replaceable teeth, and a two nostril nose. It will take a Sand Shark around five standard years to fully mature, with females being able to lay around thirty eggs at once. The largest Sand Shark known measures around nine feet long (two meters), but despite their fairly mundane size they require a constant supply of meat to survive, needing at least one ton of fresh meat a day, making them constantly on the hunt, taking anything they can get.

With their large fins, an individual Sand Shark is able to skirt across the sands at incredible speeds, clocking in at a maximum speed of sixty-eight kilometers per hour, making them a living missile. Typically, their dorsal fin will stick above the sands, and the sand will be disturbed, making large clouds surrounding it, giving creatures ample warning of their approach. But despite how obvious they are, due to their extreme speeds and incredible agility, being able to turn in any direction underneath the sands in seconds, it's almost impossible to escape them on land.

Along with their speed, the Sand Shark has some of the most powerful jaws of any creature on Haven, with a biting force of around thirty thousand pounds per square inch, thanks to the incredibly powerful muscles all around their mouths. The teeth themselves are also extremely sharp, being able to puncture skin with minimal effort, however they are fairly brittle, often cracking and or falling off, but thanks to their interchanging rows of teeth, it almost never affects them.

Sand Sharks have a suite of sensory abilities, with an average hearing range of around a half of a kilometer, as well as an eye sight that allows them to see things up to seven kilometers away. However, the two most powerful sensory organs they posses is their nose and their skin. Their nose has been developed to be able to detect small sand burrowing animals native to the Auit-Islet, in a range of around a kilometer, making an individual Sand Shark acutely aware of most creatures in their immediate vicinity.

Their skin is able to detect vibrations of the sands above them, allowing them to shoot up on unsuspecting prey. Along with the sensory capabilities, their skin is extremely solid, as they need to contend with rival Sand Sharks fairly regularly, leaving them riddled scars and deep gashes.

Sand Shark: Behavior

The most prevalent behavioral trait of Sand Sharks is their extremely aggressive behavior towards anything that comes anywhere near them, often attacking things they have no hope of contending against simply because they crossed within an arbitrary threshold of some kind. This often includes other Sand Sharks, as they often will cross paths, leading to spectacular battles to be waged.

When a female Sand Shark is pregnant, their aggressive behavior will be increased ten fold, as it requires a larger quantity of meat, settling for anything within its grasp. After their young fully mature, then they will often not recognize them as their own progeny and will attack on instinct, leading to a high mortality rate fore newly formed adult Sand Sharks.

Medusozoa Cnidaria Fauna

"The Thera have a very unique appearance, looking like a piece of well-fitted white cloth floating in the deep. They are also some of the most photogenic of Haven's brilliant creatures, with it being impossible to not capture a gorgeous shot when attempting to image their respective colonies."-William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A typical Thera.

Thera: Overview

The Thera are an uncommon species of Medusozoa Cnidaria, or more commonly known as: "Jellyfish" that exists across Haven's salt-water oceans. They have a unique appearance, appearing like white cloth floating in the deep and are sparsely located across the planet, with small pockets of the creature known to exist in various areas, with a global population of around six hundred thousand.

Unlike most Medusozoa fauna, Thera have a large spinal cord extending throughout their body, which in technicality disqualifies them from the traditional cnidarian classification, but as they are an exact mirror image of that of typical Medusozoa fauna, they have been classified as such.

Thera: Physical

The baseline physical appearance and overall structure is very similar to many Medusozoa species across the known universe. Their bodies are primarily made up of a jelly-like materiel known as: "Mesoglea" making them incredible soft and squishy. However the respective Mesoglea that makes up their body has a fairly unique texture that takes the appearance and feeling of well-crafted cloth, and this texture will always take a white-colored appearance, with no known variation of color. Like most Medusozoa, their bodies are mostly made up of water, with the aforementioned liquid making up for around eighty percent of their entire body.

The only internal organ that exists within a Thera is their large spinal cord, which takes the appearance of a large blue-colored bone located throughout the length of the animal's body. This spine serves as the sensory organ of the individual Thera, with each millimeter of its structure being covered with thousands of sensory groves that can feel out changes in the water around them, or feel changes in its body, allowing the Thera to have complete spatial around itself in an area of around ten feet and a three-hundred and sixty degree radius. As a result, Thera are totally blind and deaf and require their spine's to give the sensory impute to understand their environment and what's happening to them.

Thera belong to the respective category of Medusozoa that lack any form of stingers. Instead, their tentacle-like appendages are able to grip their prey with amazing strength, almost making escape impossible for smaller prey. Then they use their small digestive cavity to consume their prey, making them a carnivorous species.

During the end of a Thera's life cycle, which typically lasts around five hundred and sixty standard year time period, they will begin to clone themselves through form of asexual reproduction. Upon their death, the clone will spring from their host's body, starting out extremely small, only around five centimeters and will grow to its maximum height in around a hundred standard year time frame.

Thera: Behavior

During a Thera's life, they will typically spend all of their time slowly swimming across the oceans, attempting to locate small fish and other small aquatic fauna to feed on. Thanks to their biology, an individual Thera only requires a small amount of food per standard week to survive, allowing an individual Thera to survive for long periods of time without the need for more caloric energy.

Typically, colonies, or more commonly known as "blooms" of Thera's will form. These are large swarms of individual Thera grouped together to give off an air of intimidation towards other larger aquatic fauna that may attempt to consume them. These blooms range in size widely, but some have been reported to hold a population count of around fifteen thousand and span an area of around a kilometer.

Gastropoda Mollusca Fauna

"Funny thing about the Woron. I've probably accidentally filled several graveyards worth of the small creature during my travels as they are often hard to notice and easy to step on. While most of these were unintentional, I can say without a doubt a good number of them were intentional as they are quite tasty." -William Tancard's: Guide to Haven's Glorious Creatures.

A Woron seen sulking across the sandy ground.

Woron: Overview

The Woron are an extremely common species of mollusca of the gastropoda family of fauna native to the various beaches and deserts of Haven, with a global population of around fifteen billion, making the Woron the most common and populace Mollusca fauna known to exist on Haven. Due to their commonality, they are an integral part of Haven's entire biosphere, with each and ever ecosystem located in more barren regions of the planet using the Woron as the most important food source by carnivorous predator species.

As well as serving as an important food source to Haven's fauna, Woron are often eaten by the native populace of Haven, as its respective flesh is considered to be a delicacy by many Ambrosia Alliance species such as the main inhabitants of Haven, humans.

Woron: Physical

A Woron's baseline physical structure and appearance is very similar to most known gastropoda mollusca species, with a small slimy body, comprised of solidified calcium carbonate precipitated out into an organic matrix. Their physical structure is very flat and round, making them appear like a flattened grayish colored mass of gelatinous liquid. Their bodies are covered in various sensors that send signals to the Woron's small brain, giving the creature an overall understanding of the area around them, as they lack any form of sight, heating, or smell.

They are very slow, only being able to travel at a maximum speed of around 0.019 kilometers an hour, making them easy prey for almost any animal. However what they lack in speed they make up for in defense, as the shells that sit upon their backs are fairly durable, taking a fair amount of force to break. These shells are mainly used to protect the Woron's body from the boiling heat produced by Hope, as their bodies would otherwise almost instantly dry out, and once they sensed approaching danger, they will quickly retract themselves into their shells, in the hopes this will defend against the would be attacker.

Their diet consists of various small bacteria that exist on the ground they slowly move across, with their mouths specifically developed to function as a sort of microscopic vacuum, being able to consume large amounts of bacteria. A Woron will constantly eat at every moment of every day, and as they do not require sleep, a Woron will eat infidelity until' their lives come to an end, causing a single Woron to eat several billions of individual bacteria during their life time.

Woron: Behavior

During a Woron's life, they will constantly wander a fixed location, typically an area of land only consisting of around ten feet in diameter. This small area of land will effectively be a Woron's entire universe, and there will typically around twenty individual Woron in any given area such as this.

They will wander aimlessly eating bacteria during most of the year, however during the winter months of Haven's standard year, male female Woron will begin to slowly approach each other, and once they reach the apotheosis of this, they will begin to mate. Once completed, a female Woron will almost immediately begin to lay eggs, eventually laying a clutch of around eight eggs in just one standard hour after. Afterwards, the eggs will hatch only five standard hours later and will emerge fully grown, as a Woron will do all of its growing inside the egg proper, and the cycle will begin anew.
