Luminous Markings

Luminous Markings

Species: Elnin
Type: Mutation
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Enmir
Is Hereditary?: Yes

Fur luminescence only affects small areas of an elnin, specifically markings, and primarily on the body where the fur is extremely short.

How-to Tail Mini Guide
Luminous Markings Notes


  • The luminosity can be any color.
  • Luminous markings on the body can fade into the fluff at the base of the tail, but it should be a clear fade and extension of existing markings on the body (see the blue section of the mini guide). Markings should not be present near the tips of long furred sections.
  • The markings on shoal and grove tails may extend further down the tail where the fur is extremely short (see the purple section of the mini guide).
  • If an elnin's body has over 50% luminous coverage (overall) and/or the glows are not near a clearly defined marking then that's when things dip into luminous suffusion. If it starts to read more like "swaths of glow" or "large areas of luminosity" then those are characteristic of luminous suffusion.
  • Wings/winglets follow the same ruling. If the markings are on over roughly 50% of the wing to the point it looks like it's entirely glowing then they're no longer just "markings" but a suffusion over a larger area. If it's luminous markings then it should be less than 50% of the wing and the glow should be around the markings mostly (this might be harder on smaller areas to pull off so we can be a bit forgiving).
  • Furless tails like undine and faenin tails can have luminous markings as long as they abide by the above guidelines.
  • Fluff mutations can show luminous markings as long as they're kept pretty close to the body.
