Physical Description[edit]
Kyvera reference, by Katari

Kyvera are mammals with body shapes similar to rodents (wider hips) as well as a fox. Their bodies have fur that can range from long to short, and are brown, grey, white, black, charcoal, or velvet in colour. Typically Kyvera will only have one colour of fur across, but they can feature fur patterns as well as multiple fur colours. The Kyvera head sports massive ears with the ability to sense very fine vibrations not only in the air, but in the ground. They also feature "cheek/jaw flaps" that can vary in shape and size and are mostly used to cool the Kyvera down. Kyvera use them to communicate emotion as well. Some Kyvera only have one on each side of the face, while some have many more. The Kyvera tail base has flaps around it. These are left over from how the Kyvera grows its tail in its infancy.


Kyvera do not have much of a defining history. If anything defining ever happened it was not logged, and so it has been long forgotten. They roam the Feywild, in different environments, which decide their evolutionary paths. Some Kyvera are cross-breeds of the two, taking some biological differences from both backgrounds. When this happens however, some are born with unique differences, like being unusually light and agile, or have a sharper tail.

Attitudes and Beliefs[edit]

Kyvera are omnivorous, social creatures. While typically nomadic, kyvera can shelter themselves and grow their own food. kyvera stay in small to medium groups, usually as a family or group of families. They can also build simple weapons, usually with their own scales and with materials in their environments. Compared to humans, kyvera are more emotional. They can be violent at times, but also very caring of each other on the other hand. Kyvera are very loyal, they will choose a single mate for their entire life. Some of them can be rather naughty as well, so watch your back. Overall, kyvera enjoy the adventure they find in traversing the Feywild.
