Species name: Kreanth (Cree-An-Th) Cruorem Daemoneus Krea
Species Characteristics- Like most blood demons, they require blood to survive. Generally, every 2-4 days. If they do not feed, they will grow weak and eventually die. As well, they seem to get stronger from the ones they drink from. However, like all blood demons, fire demon blood is poisonous to them, as is the blood of ANY god, and some strains of demonic diseases.
They can take on three forms. A human one, to pass amongst a crowd, a blood monster that appears humanoid, usually for battle, and a liquid puddle form. This puddle is a very risky move, as once a Kreanth enters it, they are stuck in it for a short period of time. While they are very difficult to physically harm in this state, they can be damaged by other means, and it is usually helpless in this state. As well, their appearance can usually be changed with concentration. Nothing massive, like a total sex change, but the way their hair is cut, or sometimes even the color, although most do not change it.
Their powers are as follows;
· Healing of human diseases
· Healing of broken bones
· Liquification of their own body
· Alteration of their own body (limited to skin, hair, or sometimes even eye color)
· Ability to change shape into something else, always another animal, but limited to the amount of blood in their body. They can NOT become another human being. The animals are always hairless, and made of blood, but no matter what form they take, they do NOT possess any of their abilities.
· Regeneration of lost limbs. Unless it was lost soon after feeding, feeding would be required to have enough blood to restore it.
· In dire circumstances, such as they lose their head, they can switch a limb for it. Example, they pull an arm into their body, and use the blood from it to restore their head.
On average, one of the Kreanth lives around 2000 years. Although no records have EVER shown one of them dyeing of old age. While males of the species tend to be significantly greater in strength, there seem to be substantially more women than men. It has been documented, that 1 in 10 births have been male.
One thing that separates this species from other blood demons, is the limit on its abilities. While most blood demons would stop gaining strength once they have reached that limit, this species seems to continue regardless. It is only after several hundred years of feeding, that a Kreanth will stop growing in power. The exact number differs for each member, and as well, once they have surpassed that limit, they will know as their need for blood, as well as their craving, abates. Of all the males born and tested, all seemed to reach the limit of their abilities about 400 years, on average, after a female of the same species.
Their breeding habits are unusual, as they usually use a parasitic style of birthing. Either male or female will take the DNA of its mating partner, and use that to create within itself a new life. That life, then grows to maturity within a few months, in what appears to be a sack on the Kreanth’s belly. It is not uncommon for a Kreanth to seek a mate outside his or her species, sometimes settling for plain old intercourse as a hit or miss way of creating offspring.

Wererats and Muranthropy
a therianthorp of the Murine variety. Wererats, like their entierly animalistic brethren, are highly evolved and nearly perfect for survival in any environment. this is both a great perk for their kind, and an enormous draw back that has made them a very rare race
Wererat vs Muranthropy-
Wererats are humanoid shape shifters with the ability to transform themselves at will into the shape of a rat, either normal or anthromorphic depending on the purity of the genetic strain of the individual. their bite is highly dangerous, as their saliva is proven to carry a virus which causes Muranthorpy. a person infected with Muranthorpy is currently incurable, as Wererats are so highly evolved thanks to humans attempting to eradicate them that any method that would cure a typical therianthorp (broad term for shape shifters of many species, including Lycanthrops) will kill the infected, and is completely ineffective against Wererats. Muranthorpy can only be spread by the bite of a wererat, and those who are infected are not contagious
Means of reproduction-
like any other species, it takes two wererats to make wererat babies. there is no such thing as a half breed wererat, as such offspring always take the species of the other parent in the instance of mating between purebred and a non. this is thanks to genetic manipulation done by scientists as a method of population control. there is no wererat in existence currently that has not been either in a laboratory and effected in this manner, or born from a pair that was and thus carries the same effected genes.
Side note on reproduction- a Wererat can not reproduce with someone with Muranthorpy in order to make pure babies. Muranthorpy is a disease... it makes you a human effected with muranthorpy, it does not make you a wererat. that's like saying a person with a cold is suddenly a rhino because they have that virus... its not how it works.
Lab Rat- was simply an albino brown rat to start, but they have been mutated and twisted so much by science they are hardly the same thing anymore. these are the most common species, and only about 1 in every ten thousand born will be anything but a lab rat (note that there aren't even probably a hundred of their kind left total of all subspecies combined.) these Wererats will always have white hair and red eyes, and are typically smaller then their wild relatives. they are usually not very bright, but are friendly and cleanly. they do not carry the Muranthorpy virus, as it has been bred out of them. WARNING. both black and brown rats can produce albino offspring, so just because it is albino does NOT mean it is a lab rat. Brown rats are still caught to try and produce more lab rats, and though they may produce offspring that resemble lab rats, if they aren't far enough down the family tree from wild caught relatives, they may still carry Muranthorpy and retain wild characteristics that would be bred out in most
Black Rat- the smallest of the three, they are the second most common. black rats are notoriously greasy, with slick black hair and dark brown or black eyes. they are more opportunistic then their relatives, tending to live close to humans to scavenge for food. black rats are more likely to travel in packs then the others, using numbers instead of size to bring down prey. they do carry Muranthorpy, and are the most likely to spread it
Brown rat- the least common due to mass extermination and hunting to produce lab rats, Brown rats are the largest and most aggressive of the three. they typically have hair in a range from dirty blond to dark brunette, and eyes of any shade of brown from nearly black, to bright yellow. they carry Muranthorpy.
Physical Description (wererat)-
Wererats usually at most have three forms, one human, one rat, one anthro. some Wererats in human form can't hide their ears and tail, where as others have no problem with this, BUT wererats that can hide their features will always have pointed ears. this is one of the only signs of their species they can't hide, though some of them will go to drastic lengths to blend in, to the point of cutting off the tips of their ears to make them rounded like humans. their species will typically change their characteristics slightly, such as hair and eye color, but all wererats are quite strong for their size, and are very adaptable and agile. though their bite is defiantly their most dangerous weapon, it is hardly the only one at their disposal.
Disease Description (Muranthorpy)-
though not effected by the moon like a lycan, people who are infected with Muranthorpy will be transformed into bipedal rat like creatures when put in certain situations, particularly those that involve high levels of stress. individuals may experience a sudden aversion to light and a growing desire to find dark, safe places to hide, as well as an over sensitive sense of smell and hearing. other symptoms include twitching and fidgeting, with sufferers often picking and chewing their lips and nails raw out of unexplainable anxiety. its difficult for them to sit still or sleep. Rats are omnivores, but they will find they experience a growing preference for meats, particularly when raw, and the smell of blood alone may be enough to induce a shift. shifts are hard to control and are usually violent, though the infected typically don't remember what they do during those times.
Diet and teeth-
Wererats are omnivores, but with a preference for meat and have a taste for blood that makes them more predatory and less opportunistic then their animal cousins. when in rat form, their teeth is the only thing that gives them away if they act like a rat. Wererats retain a more human dental arrangement because, unlike normal rats that only have incisors for gnawing and molars for grinding food, Wererats are predominantly predators. instead of the long incisors for gnawing, they have sharp canines. in human form, they have a very distinctive bite, with sharp canines like fangs and two elongated premolars behind each on both the top and bottom jaw. the canines hold prey and puncturing vital organs, where the premolars are long with a backward facing sharp edge meant to slice, effectively replacing the elongated incisors typical of rats.
Wererats aren't social beings and though a mating pair will stay together and babies are raised by the parents, they rarely travel in packs larger then three or four at a time depending on the number of pups.
most are addicted to peanut butter
James, Seth (Brown rat and Brown rat/lab rat hybrid receptively)
Allowing others to make them?-
if you want a person infected with Muranthorpy, just ask and i can have James infect them. please don't make a Wererat though. i've had James for quite a while, no one else has even had a rat related char, let alone this species. so if you suddenly want one now that i reserved it, too bad
Species Common name- Faun (and all other variations)
Genius and Species- Humanus Faunus
Physical Description- Fauns are bipedal creatures typically with the torso of a human, and the lower limbs of a hooved animal. They may have hair on their legs, no hair, or hair which covers their entire body. They typically have tails, either short like their species, or long with a tuft of fur at the tip. They usually have horns or antlers, what type usually depending on their subspecies. A normal ram Faun will have ram horns,
Where as the Hart subspecies has the antlers of a deer. Some species have a bur, also referred to as a dew claw, on the inside of their legs, which can, when raised, inflict a great amount of damage as they can be quite long and sharp.
Social order- Fauns when young are gentle, typically herbivorous creatures. They are playful with each other and quite curious, but can be skittish around others. As they approach maturity, they gradually become more omnivorous, and finally full on carnivores when they reach adult hood. Adult females may travel together and are not overly aggressive. Males however are highly territorial and aggressive. They will fight, kicking and slashing each other with their dew claws, until one either surrenders and leaves, or one is incapable of fighting or dies. In the case one falls and can not leave, the victor will always kill the loser. There may be slight variations to this amongst particular subspecies, as some are not so highly aggressive, but others are so territorially a male will even kill his own sons, fathers, or siblings to keep them from coming of age or becoming competition.
Breeding- Fauns breed typically in the fall, but are known for their promiscuous nature and will seek out mates of any humanoid species year around if possible. They are not known for monogamy however, and males rarely take part in the raising of children unless the female become incapable of doing so
Most Common Subspecies
Ovis- Sheep, domestic, big horn, or otherwise (curling horns)- about mid aggression level. They may raise and interact with their sons or other male family members, but will still fight with other unrelated adult males, especially if a female is in the area
Hart- Deer of any species (Antlers) range greatly. White tails are hardly aggressive at all, and males may even travel together. Golden Hinds are extremely aggressive to the point of killing their own male offspring.
Capra- Ibex (long back turned horns) about mid range. Can be around each other, but if you put a female in the mix, they will fight very aggressively
Other- there are other, rarer species of Faun such as a unicorn like variety, but as Fauns themselves are rare, these creatures are exceptionally unlikely to be seen, if they are not fully extinct. The rarest species of Faun is a Kirin. Most of the species that fall into this category are either extremely aggressive, or not aggressive at all. There is no middle ground here.
Examples- Kid, Echo, Adymn
Reason for Reservation- I am currently the only one using them when I make this, I have several and no one else has shown interest up until this point, so I want to make sure someone doesn’t see them, make one, then screw up what I’ve established about the species
Allowing others to make it- meh, you can ask. I reserve the ability to be able to say no, but you can ask.
