Not for consumption - Rock Candies


Most common elements: True to their name, most Rock Candies possess Earth or its subtypes as affinities, with pure Earth being the most common element, and Crystal being the second most common. Rock Candies with the Magnet affinity have been rumored to exist, but a credible report or documentation of any such individuals has yet to be established.


Hereditary magic: An even mix of affinities and aptitude for affinities is passed down from parents to offspring. Even if Rock Candies parents do not pass the affinity or aptitude for learning it down, all Rock Candies are able to take on or be affected by any environment with a prominent Earth or Earth-subtype, regardless of age. Rock Candies are heavily influenced by the minerals and crystals that grow from their tails, and can often acquire affinities that would normally be incompatible with themselves through their tails.


Elemental weaknesses/resistances:


Acid: Rock Candies are generally highly susceptible to acid, which can corrode their skin as well as lower their physical and mental resistances to other elements.


Water: Water can dampen, or inhibit their ability to effectively utilize and work with their own individual elements.


Light: Rock Candies are sensitive to the common forms of this element, as both their skin and eyes are irritated and damaged when subjected to extremely bright light, be it natural or artificial.


Earth+Subtypes: Most Rock Candies are familiar with Earth and its subtypes, and possess varying resistances to them. Almost no Rock Candies are weak to these elements, but special cases can and do exist.


Common locations: Rock Candies are native to Owel, and Candy Rock is their native home. Many can be found elsewhere as long as the area is underground, such as Honeycomb Plateau or the Beheaded City's catacombs, or possesses consistent heavy shade, such as Miaoustok. If a Rock Candies possesses the appropriate attire, such as heavy robes and goggles, they may live anywhere they wish without fear of irritating their skin or eyes.


Climate preference: Rock Candies prefer cool, arid, underground environments, as they are sensitive to heat, water, and bright sunlight. Candy Rock is their ideal location, as it is mainly underground, kept dry through a heavy infrastructure of vents blowing in air from the surface, and has access to numerous underground rivers and lakes. Althar would be a prime example of a climate most incompatible for Rock Candies, as it is consistently sunny and extremely hot.


Level of intelligence: All Rock Candies are capable of higher-level thinking, such as the ability to plan ahead, to reason, rationalize, and to understand abstract concepts and principles.


Language: Common


Trivia: Rock Candies eat rocks and crystals almost daily, but they get no nutritional benefit from doing this. Rather, their tails will grow crystals based on the minerals that Rock Candies consume. Many Rock Candies strive to achieve the perfect diet of rocks and crystals that will grow their tail crystals how they'd like, as beautiful and unblemished tails are a fashion statement and status symbol in Candy Rock. Their tails can regrow if broken off, but most Rock Candies will not bring this fact up or admit it to be true.


Rock Candies are omnivorous and are able to stomach most foods, but prefer dishes made from subterranean wildlife. Exposure to direct sunlight harms their eyesight, and they sunburn easily, so tinted eyewear and protective clothing is almost always worn by Rock Candies when traveling aboveground.


Electricity has a tendency to ignore Rock Candies, with all but the most determined currents choosing to pass around them.


When referring to a single resident, the correct term is "a Rock Candies", and not "a Rock Candy". Rock Candy is a hard sweet made from sugar, salt, and citrus juice.

One question, if a Rock Candies found many deposits of Amber- would they gain similarly colored stones? It is fossilized tree sap, not sure on if it would be part of their diet.

I believe you mean nearsightedness? Lest the whiskers are meant to detect things from long distances.

Nearsightedness is when they can see up close, but not Farr away, and farsightedness is the opposite. I'm assuming you know this, but just to make sure as I don't really understand what is meant by your comment.

Say, I just noticed that all the Rock Candies have plus ("+") or x-shaped pupils for their eyes. That's pretty cool.

How can they have such an intense relation with color if they don't like bright lights and live underground? I mean, they can't see the colors properly then.
Reply
:iconpurplekecleon:
purplekecleon Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
You can not like bright lights but still see color just fine! It just means they wouldn't want to go outside in a bright noon etc. Plus, they have light sources (that their eyes can handle) underground that let them look at things without issue. Not everything sees color the way we do!
