Traits

Satin Fins

Satin Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Satin fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by their two dramatically curved spines and three semi-rigid fins whose edges are slightly ruffled.

Flipper Fins

Flipper Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Flipper fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by two fins that overlap somewhat at their bases and have shapes that curve similarly to a traditional mermaid tail fin.  Usually the outside edge of each ‘flipper’ has a spine, but it varies - the spine can wrap around the entire edge of the fin, or there can be no spine.  This fin type is generally more opaque.

Unique Fin Type

Unique Fin Type (Admin)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Although it is extremely unusual, there are occasionally dextroluma born whose fins have a shape that is not one of the standard types. This seems to have no ill effects on them, but their unique fin types also do not seem to be passed down and don’t seem to be able to be made of other materials.

Draped Fins

Draped Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Draped fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by a complete lack of cartilage and their generally thin and flexible nature.  While they can fold into ruffles at the bottom like frill fins, it is not particularly characteristic of the type.  These fins generally tend to be on the longer side, and can be tied up into bows and knots without any pain for the Dextroluma who have them, which some prefer either for style or to avoid tripping over their own fins.  This fin type is generally of low opacity.

Elven Fins

Elven Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Elven fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized most strongly by the two dramatically curling outer spines.  They possess a total of four spines and three pieces of webbing whose edges have ‘u’ shaped curves that point in towards the body.  This fin type is generally of medium opacity.

Fallen Fins

Fallen Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Fallen fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by four spines and three narrow pieces of webbing with edges shaped like a ‘u’ that point in towards the body.  This fin type is generally more opaque.

Spino Fins

Spino Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Spino fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by four long spines and three large pieces of webbing whose edges are shaped like a ‘v’ that points in towards the body.  It is believed that long ago, this fin shape proved useful for communication among Abyssal dwellers, due to the large expanses of glowing fin, and that this is why it is only found in Abyssal bloodlines.  This fin type is generally more opaque.

Horned Fins

Horned Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Horned fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by three spines with the top piece curving up, and two pieces of  webbing with edges that have large ‘u’ shaped curves pointing in towards the body.  This fin type is generally of medium opacity.

Butterfly Fins

Butterfly Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Butterfly fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by three distinct pieces of thick and rigid fins shaped like pointed ovals, with the middle piece being smaller and layered behind the other two. Usually the outside edge of each fin has no spine, but it can vary- the spine can wrap around the entire edge of the fin,  just the very top of the fin or there can be no spine.  This fin type is generally more opaque.

Bloom Fins

Bloom Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Bloom fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by two pieces of webbing that curve out along their edge and three spines - one at the top of the fin which curls slightly, one between the fin pieces, and one that curls slightly at the bottom.  This fin type is generally of medium opacity.

Wing Fins

Wing Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Wing fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by their wing shaped webbing and singular spine at the top of the fin. Additionally wing fins possess the ability to open and close under the movement of the spine. This fin type is generally of medium opacity.

Frill Fins

Frill Fins (Rare)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Frill fins are a less frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by a flexible spine and a singular large piece of fin that folds into ruffles along the bottom.  This fin type is generally of lower opacity.

Spiked Fins

Spiked Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Spiked fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by four spines and three sections of webbing whose edges have ‘u’ shaped curves that point in towards the body, with the largest section being the middle section.  This fin type is generally of medium opacity.

Scattered Fins

Scattered Fins (Common)

Category: Fin Style
Species: Dextroluma

Scattered fins are a frequently observed fin type across Aerius, and are characterized by their five broad spines and comparably smaller five sections of webbing between them, with slight 'u' shaped curves on the edges that point in towards the body. While the spines are commonly thicker, they can vary in width.  This fin type is generally of medium opacity.


Unique Fin Placement

Unique Fin Placement (Rare)

Category: Fin Placement
Species: Dextroluma

All dextroluma possess a pair of fins on their head (where a human’s ears would go). Some dextroluma may have no other fins beside these, or have fins grow on other places such as the torso, the neck and the head.

Standard  Fin Placement

Standard Fin Placement (Common)

Category: Fin Placement
Species: Dextroluma

All dextroluma possess a pair of fins on their head (where a human’s ears would go). In addition to these, most dextroluma have at least one fin on each of their arms and at least one fin on each of their legs.

[Should a Dextroluma sustain an injury in which the limb is lost, this fin placement would still be counted as standard.]

Crystal Fins

Crystal Fins (Regional)

Category: Fin Add-Ons
Species: Dextroluma

Some dextroluma of the Crystal Region have fins made of crystal, similar to the horns and halos found in the region. Unlike the horns, however, these fins are not found on all dextroluma who are genetically from the Crystal Region.

Baubles

Baubles (Common)

Category: Fin Add-Ons
Species: Dextroluma

Some Dextroluma have little glowing shapes that dangle from their fins, which are called baubles. These can be any shape, but always match the Dextroluma’s glow color(s).  It’s as normal for a Dextroluma to have baubles as it is for them to not have baubles.

Material Fins

Material Fins (Admin)

Category: Fin Add-Ons
Species: Dextroluma

Some dextroluma have fins that take on a non-regional material from their environment that is unusual to it, such as flowers, cloth, smoke, metal, fire, or more. They can be born with their fins like this or develop this later in life. While it can impair hearing for some dextroluma, it doesn’t necessarily cause hearing loss or problems for all dextroluma with this trait. This is not to be confused with the occasions where a dextroluma’s fins take on a material standard to their region, such as a crystal region dextroluma with crystal fins.

Three or More Horns

Three or More Horns (Rare)

Category: Horn Amount
Species: Dextroluma

All dextroluma possess horns. Some of them possess more than two horns, although it is not believed to increase their natural healing ability. Horns can be any shape or size.
