My original species I created, the Servan.
Info I posted on deviantART:
IMPORTANT INFO!!! YOU MUST READ THIS TO MAKE A SERVAN!! UNDERSTAND THE SPECIES BEFORE YOU MAKE ONE!!!
These are Servans, suited to live in multiple terrains and environments.
Male Servans have control over a group of about 7-9 female Servans, this group is called a pride, mostly because the behaviors and social structures observed, they behave more like lions than wolves or canines. They are very smart; Closely rivaled by gorillas and dolphins; and are capable of using tools and understanding signlanguage if taught at a young age. When working or used for riding, Servans are groomed daily and the ears and tail are docked, the horns ground down, the dewclaws removed, and quills removed. If the tail has hair, the tail is docked and the remaining hair is either cut short or left long and put up in a bun or loop; sometimes even braided; The mane can be cut or styled however the rider or owner chooses. If a male and female are forced to breed, the resulting offspring will be stillborn. When mating with the chosen female or male they prefer, the male and female actually share love for eachother, like a married couple would when making love. “Making love” for them results in the female being happy and giving off nourishing hormones which keep the babies alive and healthy. A female Servan can have up to but not more than 4 pups at a time. Each pup is born with either black or dull colored fur, and start earning their markings when they shed their first “puppy coat”, this is when the markings start to become more visible. The first puppy coat shedding takes place at the age of 2, then at the age of 3, horns start to come in. Servans live up to the age of 100, but some have been known to live up to 150. When they get too old, they leave the pride and live on their own, and some say when they die, depending on the element the possessed in life, they leave ancient trees and forests; Endless flowing crystal clear rivers and lakes; Endlessly burning fires or embers; or permanently spinning whirlwinds. They are tattooed with a symbol on their neck when they are assigned their element, usually a red whisp for fire, a simply drawn green tree for earth, a light blue water drop for water, or a white swirl for wind.
If you wish, you can use the lineart on this ref sheet for your Servan, just erase all the text and don’t remove my signature. You can edit the horns and whatever, just give me credit for the species and lineart.
And PLEASE link me. I’d love to see. <3
