Classic Sigil

Classic Sigil

Species: Elnin
Category: Crown
  •  (previously "Simple Glyphic") :  Sigil crowns are symbols that usually represent an idea or emotion (exact interpretation can most often only made by the elnin itself- ie the elnin's owner is welcome to interpret the meaning of a sigil crown however they like). The imagery should always be very vague, the lines of a sigil crown should never look exactly like a drawing of some specific thing. The crown itself is made of two types of runes: 
    • Core runes. Each core rune is a single "stroke" or symbol, usually intersecting another rune, but they can also stand alone. Core runes can curve, but any distinct angles or direction shifts are limited to twice per rune. Any more than that will constitute the start of a new rune. You can have up to [4] core runes on the classic version of sigil crowns.
    • Inflection runes. Inflection runes are (optional) small dots or short dashes that can accompany a sigil. In elnin lore, these periphery runes act as accent or emphasis marks and are supposed to help with reading a rune's full meaning (but for art purposes they're mainly just for design flourish). You can have up to [5] inflection runes on the classic version of sigil crowns.

    • Color Restrictions: A Sigil crown can be any single color (ELN256) -or- a gradient effect of up to two colors as long as one of the two colors matches the elnin's anima (ELN227).
    • Misc: Classic sigils should not give off any type of light.

Shoal

Shoal

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : n/a
General description : A furry tail with a fishy flare.

Things to keep in mind : 

  • Standard shoals have a fan of fluff at the base of the tail as well as a fin-shaped fan at the end of the tail.
  • There is always at least a partial section in the middle that is mostly sleek or otherwise lacking excessive fluff.
  • The "fin" shaped fur placements are always vertical. Horizontal alignments are only present on hybrid versions.
Zephyr

Zephyr

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : n/a
General description : Zephyr tails have a windswept, feathery quality. The supporting tail limb is usually held upright, causing a pronounced arc and elegant fall of fur that sometimes brings to mind the shape of a rooster's tail.

Things to keep in mind :

  • Zephyrs often sport additional streamers of fur that flare stylishly from the base of the tail.
  • This is not a feathered tail. The fur is just prone to separating into sections that can appear feather-like.
Welkin

Welkin

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : n/a 
General description : Welkin tails are characterized by their silky spiraling swirls. These distinct shapes are caused by underlying energy whorls and often look artificially distinct in shape when compared to natural curls.

Things to keep in mind :

  • Welkin tails are not truly weightless, but the hair is so light and delicate that it tends to billow outwards in fluffy clouds.
Grove

Grove

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : n/a
General description: Somewhat like a unicorn tail. Groves are slender and flexible, with a tuft of fur at the end. 

Things to keep in mind :

  • Generally the main tail fluff should not extend up past the halfway point of the tail.
  • Grove tails sometimes have extra bits of fur that drape loosely underneath the base of the tail.
Lagoon

Lagoon

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : n/a
General description : The tail all kittoms love to hide under. Lagoon tails are made of sections of fur all draping loosely from a gracefully upheld tail. It creates a lovely cascade effect that also handily doubles as a nice tent.

Things to keep in mind :

  • The actual length of the draping parts of the fur should be at least the height of an elnin from toe to chin (so no super short cropped lagoons).
Canopy

Canopy

Species: Elnin
Category: Tail Style

Merged from : Timber / Fern
General description : A good ol' curlicue tail.

Things to keep in mind :

  • The tail can be tightly curled with densely packed fluff, or it can be loose and floppy, or anywhere in between.
  • You can uncurl the tail just a little bit from the base, but the majority of the tail must remain curled up.
