Painted Alligators -


Most common elements: Most painted alligators have either Earth, Fire, or Sand affinities, and even if they do not, they are more than likely able to acquire one or more of them. They can also obtain affinities for Crystal or Lava, but this is rare and is often never passed down to later generations.


Hereditary magic: If the parents possess Earth, Fire, or Sand affinities and have offspring, those offspring will commonly possess one or two parental affinities. If the parents do not have the three listed affinities, or if one of the parents is not a painted alligator, no affinity is usually passed down; instead, the aptitude for learning the parental affinities is.


Elemental weaknesses/resistances:


Earth, Fire, Water, Poison: Painted alligators are fairly resilient, and regardless of their actual element, possess slight resistances to these listed four.


Spirit: Many painted alligators are susceptible to any mental or spiritual assailment by Spirit and its subtypes, with Psi being the most effective against them by far.


Common locations: Althar is the native homeland of the painted alligators, and most all of them are found there. They may also be found in areas with access to water, some examples including Miaoustok, Gnawth, and the National Port of Owel. A few painted alligators have been rumored to live deep underneath Mew York, in the sewer systems of Old Kadath, but a sighting there has yet to be verified.


Climate preference: Painted alligators prefer humid, hot environments, clear skies, and calm waters. Most painted alligators consider Althar's coastline to be ideal. They can tolerate freshwater lakes and rivers, but they greatly prefer saltwater.


Level of intelligence: Nearly all painted alligators are capable of higher level thinking, such as the ability to plan ahead, to reason, rationalize, and to understand abstract concepts and principles. There have been rumors, however, of some existing that are incapable of this higher level thinking, which are extremely hostile and will attack other races without concern. These wild ‘gators have never been spotted in Althar, however.


Language: Altharian, with a good majority also able to speak Common.


Trivia: Many are able to speak in the Sphinx's language, but only when actually conversing with a Sphinx; they cannot recall the language otherwise. They nearly always feel a desire to protect the Jackals of Althar, and when actually doing so, their resistance to all elements increases greatly, with the exception of Psi. Despite the painted alligators's relatively fearsome appearance, they are neither aggressive or hostile, and most are either vegetarians or pescetarians. They cannot cry. They have a mutual feeling of kinship towards the other native races of Althar. Many of them constantly patrol the waters around Althar, forever on guard for a threat which none of them can identify or describe.

Even tough they can't cry, they still can feel sad or want to cry right? But the eyes/anatomy just isn't build for that?

ALSO YAY for finally seeing the term pescetarian somewhere again x)
