When talking about the aspect of a 'heart's desire' the concept is taken to.. somewhat literal lengths when it comes to these half-breeds. Half-Rakai, the power of their sire kin's crystalline hearts is only added to by the magical crystal of the gargoyles, though granted, where one is pure and solid, the corrupting nature of shadows does not go without an effect.. Encased in a solid rock shell, it is, in fact, literally solid, unlike their gargoyle kin who sport a more malleable kind of 'living' rock skin that shifts and moves as they do. Thankfully most of the rock is shaped into variously sized scales, that shift and slide against one another, allowing the creature to move and live quite comfortably, even though cracks and fissures leave gaps through which one could see the true magic encased inside. Some could even argue whether the soul of the creatures are their bodies or merely the crystal which forms at their core and sprouts outward. There isn't really a lot of room for sentiment in these half-bloods, mostly because they have a hard time relating to beings of more organic and 'squishy' variety. While this does not make them disobedient or notably stubborn compared to other instances, it does create a sense of 'aloofness' where one could almost swear the only thing they do seem interested in is other crystals. While it doesn't make them terribly good companions, at least they could find you some pretty gemstones?
There's certainly a lot of frightful creatures that go bump in the night, but rarely are there any that go 'click'. And yet, that is one of the tell-tale signs that one of these half-breeds are up and about close by. There is not all too much concrete about them as much of their potential tends to lie in what manner of magics they end up learning, but a few physiological quirks are the same across all. Whether curious or a trickster, all of these half-breeds have an innate sense of caution and fearfulness. In large part it comes from their more underdark-dwelling parents, though the private nature of the maliis certainly doesn't help. The rest of the reason comes from their build - for their size, they are quite frail compared to some other creatures, thus they are more made for avoiding dangers than confronting them. Able to walk the shadows and use tools in equal measure makes their skillsets more in the line of 'brains' than 'brawn'. In this the owners would do well to study their creatures and help them reach new potentials, before they could truly know how to properly handle them. This is especially true due to their wings, thin and delicate segmented membranes, quote sensitive to air flows and pressures. Something which, along with their clicking vocalizations, aids them in navigating the darkness of the tunnels. Unfortunately this also makes them reflexively recoil from touch even by those they deem trustworthy, which can make handling a creature such as this an art of patience. But, perhaps, given enough time and practise, even these creatures could develop a trust with their owner not unlike how the malii are rumoured to.. and on that day, they might not even flinch.

To preface, the scientists of the Confluxery would like to reassure that, despite appearances, these half-breeds are not, in fact, blind. In fact, the truth is quite the opposite - they might be seeing considerably more in the light wavelengths than most other creatures. Aside the odd appearances of their eyes, the surface of their body is another odd anomaly. It is certainly organic, skin and fur and all such normal to organic creatures, yet the sheen and light glistening off of them seems nearly otherwordly. And the shine of things is likewise what they are attracted to, almost as if the very gleam of their own form makes them covet anything with a glint as theirs. While technically not the brightest of creatures they can be tricky at times, a built-in defense mechanism making them seem inert and unmoving. To new owners, this can be a cause of alarm, as they quite literally appear to be having no physical functions at all, not even breathing. This, however, is thankfully a ruse that the half-breeds prefer to use as defense as well as a playful aspect, for next to finding things which shine, the carefree nature often makes these creatures quite good companions, especially to small children. Once.. you get past the hollow eye thing, at least..

When one thinks of orbaru, one generally considers to be quite docile and passive. Certainly, that stopped being the case with the Battle orbaru, and their more recent close-flung cousin, the Ebil orbaru. These two breeds seemed unique in their lot for combat and combined with the hardy, stony stubbornness of the gargoyles, the result is a package akin to a small badger. While mostly made out of stone they aren't exactly quite as hardy as their gargoyle brethren, but what they lack physically they more than make up in gumption. These creatures may seem calm and placid one second, then turn around to threaten the nearest thing that made a wrong sound or wrong move. Most of it is simply just that - a threat display. Try as they might, the crystals on their tails are far too fragile to be actually used as clubs, although they certainly do present themselves are sharp, pointy and above all, dangerous. A little bit of corrupted stone-blood can go a long way, after all. Still, the anomalous hard-headedness aside they do still make just as good of a mining companion as their gargoyle relatives. Except, perhaps, not.. that great of a cuddly pet like their orbaru kin, due to mostly being made out of cold, hard, jagged stone..

Riku: From what I loosely understand about the fish is that it isn't one-use, whereas the berry is. I feel like there wouldn't be any consequence of 'using' the fish...which I'd think just ooc wouldn't be counted for whatever rolls or whatever it is that it uses

Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?
Jun 1, 2020 6:09:21 GMT -6
Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*

Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD

Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't
