2. Care Instructions
Svarpians live in the Ryvern Marshes on the northern side of the Isle. They
are solitary creatures that don't need a lot of attention. They can slitter
soundlessly over about any surface and through shallow waters, floating on
their flippers. Those flippers and the end of the tail have tiny suction cups to
enable them to climb walls and trees.
3. Mating Info
Once a year all svarpians gather and hold contests. The winners of those
contests are allowed to mate. This is how svarpians ensure the hatchlings
will be strong. The female(s) lays around 20-40 eggs shortly after.
Females and males are allowed to compete every year, however it is unlikely
they'd win two years in a row.
Years ago the marshes were a dangerous place and nobody was allowed inside.
Recently though, the Wicena masters cast a spell of protection over the area
ensuring the safe return of anybody who might otherwise come to harm.
Some colours are more common than others, this is
likely due to camouflage. On the more common scale are green, brown,
black, grey and tan-coloured (or bamboo) svarpians. Less common are
the brighter colours like red, yellow and blue. Even rarer still are
the white and pastel svarpians. Those last two colours are caused by
recessive genes. These svarpians are usually frail and often don't
live to adulthood. Even when they do, they tend to be smaller and more
slender than other svarpians.
pretty easy to care for, they can go a long time without food or care.
Brown: usually dwell in trees, they enjoy
to scare people.
Black/Grey: shy with a tendency to keep
to the shadows, they don't mind the cold.
Bamboo: the most vicious, they also tend
to grow the largest.
Red: very confident and strong, they
enjoy company more than the average svarpian
Yellow: cheery and sensitive, they
usually don't pose much of a threat.
Blue: cool and collected, they don't like
good-natured and friendly, quite unlike an actual svarpian.
shy and easily frightened, they'll need extra care from their owners.
