Latex Beast[edit]

A humanoid race which is known for the number of types there are of it, Latex Beasts are heavily territorial beings that form in tribes which consist of only their subraces, occasionally, you have the one or two members who leave and adapt to the outside world, their signature trait is their latex-like body which allows them to fit in places which most others couldn’t.

Physical Description[edit]

Latex Beasts have animalistic features which usually depend on the type, this can range from humanoid wolves to humans sharks with black stripes, the universal truth is however is that they all adopt a humanoid appearance and clearly have latex-like parts. It has been documented though that these features generally assist with their surroundings or make up for physical traits they’ve lost.

History[edit]

Latex Beasts come from a science experiment conducted by some humans to attempt to do something which has never been documented. However said experiment failed and the liquid beasts spread throughout the lands, adapting to their surroundings. After this we have 5 different paths of history, one for each split. But for now let’s stick with general history: Some speculate that these life-forms, were changed from single-celled organisms due to several experiments one such rumor which is the most popular of them all was an insertion of animal DNA which caused animalistic features. After these now-humanoids escaped they found themselves in the real world and took over land, forcing the original inhabitants to leave said land, the creatures, once they chose their land were satisfied with the size, they started to only live in said land, causing various differences in not only animalistic features now but physical traits. As of recent though, there have been reports that some of these creatures have started leaving their respective territories to explore the outer world.

Society[edit]

Latex beasts form territorial tribes which consists of observably similar and if not, almost identical members of their race physical traits wise, these groups all seem to share the same base group though, with diversity only being caused by random mutation. Latex beast’s territory should never be entered without extreme caution as they immediately attack and try their best to kill any creature which enters their territory, especially including members of other tribes of this race. As of recent due to some of these creatures coming out of their territory to explore the outside world, they seem to now be entirely rejected by their original tribes, even being considered outsiders now. Due to this past dependence on others in their tribe, these outcasts will usually either take years to do an activity to become independent, or stick with others so as to keep things familiar to themselves, ditching their territorial behavior.
