For browbirds who fully dedicate themselves to learning magic, they will eventually achieve complete mastery of one of their aspects. When they obtain mastery of an aspect, that aspect will affect their body in some way.
Trait: The Spirit branch of aspect mastery replaces the browbird's hair, the tip of their tail, or parts of their fur entirely with an aspect. It is often centralized in specific locations, and does not overtake the entire body.
To have one of these mastery traits, your browbird must also have the corresponding aspect.
Each different aspect counts as a separate aspect mastery traits. However, using multiple variants within the same aspect will only count as one aspect mastery trait.
