Trait Categories

Type

Type is the same as subspecies.

For Characters with multiple or hybrid subspecies, they will have their additional subpsecies listed out as traits instead so that they can still be searched. 

Aspect

Each aspect falls into one of the four domains. These domains govern all magic and how the universe opperates. All laws of existence and all planes correspond to the domains, each with their own plane where that domain holds the most power.

The aspects themselves are how living beings have come to understand and categorize laws of nature under the domains, and giving names to the aspects is part of why people are able to control them at will.

Crest

Crests are the floating symbol above a browbird's head, often positioned between the browbird's horns.
Certain specific crests can encircle the horns or be positioned behind the head.

Crests are the soul of the browbird, and the source of their magical energy. The crest's appearence will be directly related to the browbird's personality.

If you need help with your crest, please ask. we are happy to answer any questions regarding crests!

✅ Crests count as only one trait total. You may add as many traits as you want of the same or lower rarity of your crest.
✅ For MYO slots only, applying an Uncommon Trait Potion, Rare Trait Potion, or Mythic Trait Potion can be used when submitting the final MYO design.
❌ Trait items cannot be used on an existing browbird's crest to modify the crest or add and traits to it.
❌ Crest traits cannot be swapped out for traits elsewhere on the design. Any traits on the crest are locked to the crest.

 


 

Building Your Crest

Crests are made up of 2 main parts. Shape and Effect.

 

Crest Shape

The crest shape is required and must be similar to a crest shape from the lists shown. 

Making Edits to Crest Shape on an existing design:
✅ You are able to edit the colors of the crest shape through the Design Change Salon!
✅ You are able to apply effects to your crest of the same or lower rarity to the crest shape. (If you have a common shape with a rare effect, that means youy have a rare crest and can add other rare or uncommon effects.) You can do so at the Design Change Salon!
❌ The crest shape itself cannot be heavily modified or swapped at all once a design is official. Please be certain of your choice when picking a crest shape.


Crest Effect

The crest effects are extra details you can add to your crest.

✅ You can use as many effects you want of the same or lower rarity as the entire crest.

Making Edits to Crest Effect on an existing design:
✅ You are able to edit the colors of the effect through the Design Change Salon!
✅ You are able to apply effects to your crest of the same or lower rarity to the crest shape. (If you have a common shape with a rare effect, that means youy have a rare crest and can add other rare or uncommon effects.) You can do so at the Design Change Salon!
❌ If removing an effect would lower your crests rarity it will be reduced in rarity when the edit goes through and it cannot be added back.


 

Extra: Crest Particles

Crests can also have extra particles added to them. These are separate additional traits that follow the crest around.

About Crests

"Crest" is the name given to the floating shape or symbol that is present above each browbird's head. They start to appear almost immediately after a browbird takes their first breath as swirling clouds of smoke that resembles a miniture storm. As a browbird grows older, their crest will take on various shapes and colors, sometimes shifting by the day. It finally settles on a single, unchanging form when they reach adulthood at the age of 20 years.

Crests can not be grabbed, moved or interacted with by an outside force, they are also able to pass through objects like little ghosts. They are always positioned above the browbird's head and will usually give off a fairly dim glow, but with a little effort it can become much brighter and be used as a light source in dark places. It's possible to stick your hand in one, and if you were to do that  it would feel warm and send little tingles up your arm. If a crest ever feels too hot or too cold, it can be a sign of depression, physical illness, and other things.

While an adult browbird's crest will not change shape drastically like a juvenile browbird's, it will still shift and flicker slightly depending on the browbird's emotions. Many browbirds passively will watch another browbird's crest for slight movements, and it's one of the many ways they understand each others emotions and communicate to one another, like another form of body language.

Browbird crests are a visual manifestation of a browbird's soul and aura. They serve as a core of energy that the browbird can focus on to draw from when using their magical abilities. This means that when a browbird uses magic or has a magical effect on their body, it will always include at least one color from their crest. An example of this would be if a browbird had a blue crest and used fire magic, their fire would be a similar shade of blue. Another example is glowing markings, which often show up in the color of the browbird's crest. This being the case, it means only browbirds with black crests, white crests and gray crests are able to have magic or glowing traits of those colors.

Crests do not extinguish until death, however they will grow smaller and dimmer if a browbird is elderly, ill, extremely weak, or close to dying. They also become small and dim if a browbird uses far too much magical energy, nearly draining their aura and putting their life at risk. Smaller fluctuations happen during daily life though, a browbird's crest will stutter and shrink if they are fearful, or flare if they are feeling fired up!

Additionally, browbirds actually have a popular form of divination concerning ones future, personality, and relationship compatibility that uses crest shape, aspects, and what birth cycle they hatched during. This process is called Celestiscope!

Horns

Browbird Horn Information

Browbird Horns

You can see all browbird horns HERE!

Nearly all browbirds have at least one set of horns growing from their heads. Browbird horns continue growing throughout the browbird's entire life, and they are incredibly difficult to break. Most browbirds spend time tending to their horns by keeping them polished and shaving them down slightly to prevent them from growing too long.
General Horn Size and Shape
Browbird horns vary widely in size and shape. The maximum size and complexity of a set of horns is often determined by rarity. Smaller, single sets of horns will usually be common, while larger horns or horns that have more branches will be rarer.
Horn Color
They can be any color and can have gradients. Each horn can have a different color, they do not have to match.
✦ Horn Patterns and Markings
Horn markings have no rarity by themselves and you are able to add all kinds of markings to your browbird's horns. However, to add markings such as stars, runes, constellations, crescent moons, or sparkles to your horns you will need the rare body marking to do so. You can see all rare markings in additional traits.
✦ Horn Decoration
Horn decoration has no rarity. You are able to freely add decorations and accessories of any kind to your browbird's horns.
Glowing Accents on Horns
Horns with glowing markings, engravings, or insides (in the case of broken horns) would all be considered mythic and can be added for free if you have the glowing marking trait.
✦ Elemental Horn Types and Effects
To have elemental horns of any kind your browbird must be an ancient and have the corresponding aspect.
✦ Horns growing from the body
To grow horns from the body in places other than the head your browbird would need to be a halv.
