Welcome to Sordid Secrets!

COMMON BEASTS

Common beasts are seen frequently and may be wandering in herds or family groups across wolf territories. Many of them can be common prey options for the packs. Please do pay attention, that the normal prey animals can also be found in the game. There are elks, deer, reindeer, moose and such, bunnies and rabbits and normal birds. The animals listed in here are animals that do not exist in the real life. Your character may even find a shark in the sea.
These are all tamable with the option of bestiary taming-item in the shop.

Leechie Snails
Giant migratory snails that often take shelter in swamps, marshes, or decaying environments. This creatures diet consists of blood from unsuspecting victims that cross their paths beneath the water or undergrowth. Unlike a common leech, these creatures consume a share of blood that could bleed an adult wolf dry. Once a leechie has attached itself to its prey, only salty minerals can properly release it. When a leechie is full of a wolf or other magical creature's blood they use only half of it to sustain themselves - the rest is carried back to the mushroom forest and secreted in their slime. The slime helps preserve the mushrooms and even gives them their daunting size.

Kaliki
Holding a kinship with the common jackal, the kaliki also has its vast array of differences. The sharp, slender face of the kaliki is replaced with a bone mask that is said to be a mutation of their skull. This mask hides many of the kaliki’s facial features; save for the eyes, which are dark, hallow pits where eyes would be. This mask ends just above the kaliki’s brow and branches off into small, minute horns. Each fall, the females horns fall off and will re-grow during the spring and will be larger than they were the year before. The most interesting aspect of the kaliki, (aside from their trickster nature) is that at the point of their horns is a glowing crystal that gives them energy. The crystals absorb energy from the sun, providing them with enough energy that it never has to sleep, however, they still need food in order to sustain themselves completely. They are strictly carnivorous. Pelt color varies, but retains realistic jackal patterns; usually buff-grey with a darker back and a light underside.

Frelik
Small rabbit-like creatures with very short ears, and tusks much like an elephant. Their fur is commonly a very light tan to bright gold. They blend in very easily to most grasses, but those who live higher up in the mountains have turned white. They are very quick and agile creatures. Their small tusks are unbreakable, almost comparable to diamonds in hardness.
Layric
A small feline-like creature, with extra long, slender ears, and a tail far too long for its body. Its tail fur is much thicker and puffier then the rest of its body. Its fur is commonly a deep brown, though it ranges from black, tans, and grays. This small creatures paws glow a bright white, and often leave small glowing paw prints. The tracks easily tell messages for others of their kind. Another Layric simply has to place their own paw over the paw print to pick up messages left behind.

Ghau
Goat-like creatures that have small horns and long, thick, white fur. Where their 'hooves' would be, they instead have claws, which help them scale the mountain. They have fangs instead of flat, worn teeth as they are also carnivores.

Ikyaks
Moose-like creatures that are pure white in color and look like moose/deer hybrids. They have large horns that curve backwards instead of antlers.

Treeb
Much like a giant crab, they live very close to the shores and large waterways. They are carnivorous and will devour a wolf if it gets too close.


UNCOMMON BEASTS

These animal are much more difficult to find. Seeing one of these doesn't happen very often, but all of them are tamable. Some of them have certain seasons when they may be seen. They are good at hiding, and you may find them from the oddest of places. Uncommon beasts rarely move in groups.


Sabri
These huge cats look very similar to a lion. They are often black with white spots or stripes, or white with black spots or stripes, and almost always have blue eyes. Its rare to see a solid white or black one. Their tails have not a tuft at the end but, a spike shaped like a spade.

Meltias
A lean and lanky creature. Its very tall, with legs that appear far too long for its body. An accurate description would be a walking canine skeleton. This creature is very thin and frail looking, though they are excellent fighters. The most common color is black, with white markings, and brilliant red eyes. They are known for their loyalty and wise minds. Meltias also have the ability to speak telepathically to any of their species, no matter where they are. Some also are able to communicate with plant life as well.

Fralan
A large serpent-like creature. Its body is made of scales, known to be made of an extremely hard substance. They can be any shade, and may change color over their lifetime. They may be born with our without wings, and always have a pair of massive horns on their heads. They are known to read minds, though it is a rare gift among their kind.
Nagül
A very large raven, with three eyes instead of two. Their bodies and wings can appear either solid or in some parts, made of a black, vaporous smoke. They are often dark in nature and are extremely intelligent, as well as being impossible to deceive. In rare cases, they have been known to share cryptic glimpses of the future.


RARE BEASTS

Rare beasts are tameable, but seeing one is not likely to happen. They are rarely ever seen as soul shadows and more commonly heard of in legends and stories. Some beasts may be summoned but only Shamans hold such an ability. Rare beasts are commonly imbued with a different kind of magic, making them harder to hunt than regular beasts of the land.


Ninetails
A incredibly beautiful and stunning fox-like creature. Named for their number of tails, they can in fact have more or less tails, depending on their age and level of magic skill. They have endless color possibilities. Ninetails are only females. When their reproduction cycle starts, they start to form packs. On the first full moon, they will huddle close and fall into a deep sleep. A white orb surrounds them, and pulls the most perfect genetics from each female. They will stay in this state until the next full moon, and then each female will give birth to one or two kits. This is how their race remains as pure and beautiful. The only way to tame one, is to steal a new born kit and raise it yourself. Their powers tend to focus on the four elements, as well as mental abilities like telepathy. They are known for being very swift as well, and can flee a pursuer within the blink of an eye once they reach adulthood.

Hippogryph
The combination of a horse and an eagle. They are known for their fierce and wild nature. Being a predator, its not uncommon for these to make a meal out of adult wolves. Colours range from white, grey and brown, with solid black being rare. They lack magical abilities, but make up for it in brute strength and bravery.


Gryphon
A rare and seclusive beast with the front half of a bird of prey and the back half of a lion, with a tufted tail and long, pointed ears above a wicked beak. They are very agile, and their colors range from all black to darker shades of any color, with extremely rare sightings of silver or white. These beasts appear to be intelligent enough for speech, but not in a language wolves know of.


Unicorn
Beautiful horses with a horn, commonly silver. They are said to hold the ability to give blessings and heal even the most fatally ill. Many legends speak of them as pure beings, who travel together for life.


Phoenix
The bird of fire and of ice, they live a life of solitude. They are born of ashes and have supreme healing abilities.


Dragon
Many dragons are born with an element such as fire, earth, air or water. Their adult size can range from the size of a dime to larger than an elephant. They are very loyal to their wolves and their pack.


Will O' Wisp
The Will O' Wisp is possibly the rarest of beasts. They are simply a beautiful orb of light, commonly white, though the color may change depending on their mood and the moods of others around them. They are the spirit of animal that has passed away, but still lingers in the lands of Victus. This spirit could be anything, from a rabbit to horse. They are always very similar in size, not much larger than the palm of your hand. They can not be touched, though they have the ability to touch others. They are impossible to kill, and are known to carry intense psychic abilities, but rarely use them.


Caelum
An ancient bird of the skies, they are said to control and maintain the weather. The bird changes depending on the weather and the seasons. Reaching the size of a small wolf, they are certainly something to fear by the wolves. If the skies are peaceful and clear, the bird remains a beautiful white, its long tail feathers near transparent. If it becomes dark or black, it will storm, electricity will spark around its body and thunder will surge from the flap of its wings. In winter, the bird becomes a beautiful blue, snow flakes falling from its wings. Legends say this ancient birds tail feathers will bring good luck and more power to those that kill the bird and adorn themselves with them. To be gifted one by the ancient bird is said so bring many blessings. Like penguins, a Caelum takes one mate for life.


Grim
Born from the gored wombs of relentless fury and agony, hell hath no limit for the wickedness of the beast of wrath and war. Dressed as the concubines of Ares, the relentless hellions are dubbed as the Grim, for they are the avatars of death decadence. Draped in the fine structures of a behemoth equine, these creatures sought gaia as their own version of hell; whom had enticed their slumbering body from the throes of countless corpses. However, these creatures do not always enjoy the lust for blood and mutilation-they only walk the earth in silence, awaiting the arrival of the reaper. Often the omen of bad luck, the Grim can be characterized by their dark pelt; most likely black or dark gray in color and a wickedly long horn grown on their forehead. The orbs of these beasts are for the most part, strikingly bright, slicing through the nocturnal nights like two small lamps guiding wary travelers to doom and gloom. The most important feature of this monster is their ten legs, six in the front and four in the back. These limbs allows for the Grim to travel much more quickly than any other creature. Another rather intriguing thing about this creature is that their tails seem to reflect those of a wolf, with some furry area around the spine. Despite it's long, cape-like length, the tail is a symbol of their age as they will grow a few inches a year. Their lifespan is longer than that of a normal horse, with some reaching 150 years of age. For the most part, Grims enjoy fruits, particularly wild strawberries and apples.


Qinu Mora
An extremely rare species found only in Kisetsumori during the winter season. The beasts are quite large, ranging from nine to fifteen feet tall and can reach up to twenty seven feet in length. They are majestic creatures, born of magic. They are considered to be creatures of luck and fortune. Legend has it that any who are fortunately enough to obtain antlers from the beast are blessed with good fortune year round, while any who are severely injured or killed by them are said to have horrible luck for the entire year. The creatures vary in opal hues with a common ivory undercoat. It has been rumored to see an occasional Qinu Mora with a black pelt, but they are considered to be extremely rare.

Jabberwot
Jabberwots are rarely seen creatures with the head of a bird and horns coming out from the top of said head. Wolf ears poke out of the head and small feathers crown the space in between the horns. Spikes then trail down half the back long neck while a mane of smooth hair falls from behind the spikes. A marking that looks strangely like a hole is placed at the side of it’s chest while strong (and long) legs end at taloned feet. The sides have three markings decorating the ribs on each side while there are four crooked spikes on the back. Hind legs are slightly more slender than the front, but make for good running and kicking. Two more markings decorate the hind legs. It’s tail must be the best thing about it, for below three feathers with extremely sharp edges pours a plume of fluff. The entire tail is fully controllable by the creature and the three feathers perform as lethal knives… for they can be shot out at an attacker before a new one immediately grows back. The Jabberwot resides in the Red Bog and Vermillion Thicket, having a penchant for living in dangerous regions. To tame one is hard and the only way to acquire one as a soul shadow is to steal it as a newborn - but mothers are lethally protective.
