Steppe

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Steppe tails are high arcing, relatively inflexible tails. The fur on steppe tails falls in light layers similar to lagoon tails, but shorter and far less heavy. This tail actually has quite a lively bounce when an elnin is trotting along, giving elnins with steppe tails an impression of being perky and ready to break into a jaunting sprint at any moment.

Details:

  • Steppe tails are really not very flexible with the structure of the tail acting like one giant feather made of fur. It can flex a bit but it's not going to curl around or bend back on itself without breaking. This tail is generally held more upright with some flexibility downward, but less than other styles like Meadow tails.
  • This tail generally has a very smooth top to the arc and a fluffier underside.
  • Unlike lagoon tails, the layering on steppe tails is less uniform with the shortest strands near the top of the tail arc sometimes visibly layered over the ones falling beneath.

Legacy:

Merged from Thicket (Legacy) mostly, with just a hint of Bosk/Bramble (Legacy) for seasoning.
