~Needle tail info~
-body appears human
-usually have very light skin (dark skin is uncommon)
-short (being tall is very rare)
-their needle tail is their life source, it contains a very strong healing medicine , and once their tail drains completely they die.
-horns (males have ram like horns)
-usual life span is 100-130 years
-Beliefs, customs, marriage and divorce:
Needle tails have a similar custom to marriage but is called "the binding"
it's the same idea as marriage but doesn't include religion, a male proposes using a white magnolia blossom in place of a ring, and during the binding the couple will paint symbols on each others face. once they are binded they tie a ribbon with their names on it to the tree that the blossom was taken from. It's also frowned upon to marry out of your clan and to divorce (unbind) , in order to unbind they must take their ribbon down from the branch and burn it while the rest of the clan watches, this is in purpose to humiliate them in choosing the wrong mate. Another custom they have, is if you are saved or helped by a human you must offer them some of the medicine in your tail, if they refuse it they are allowed one favor in return for their kindness.
-Interaction with humans , habitats, clans and reproduction:
Needle tails usually live in large clans (based on the color of the medicine in their tails) and set up villages in forests or mountains by a source of water, in order to reproduce they must be binded first, if they are not binded and have a child they are exiled from the clan. the whole clan raises the children, all acting as a huge family, if the parents die the clan often assigns new parents, and as a child grows up they are taught many things, fighting, hunting, healing, climbing, fishing , etc.. in hopes they can become vauled members of the clan someday or possibly the new leaders.
Needle tails have a terrible past with humans, they used to live side by side, often needle tails would work beside doctors within the human community as they knew about many different medicines , but humans began to hunt and kill them for the valuable medicine found in their tails, many clans were wiped out, but the few that remain stay far away from humans, trying to live in peace, without war, although few young rebellious needle tails set out in order to get revenge. not all humans hunt them though, there are few who set out in order to help bring back peace bettween the needle tails and humans. some even befriend needle tails and in few rare cases, fall in love. to make sure you read the info when offering please say "rave" :'I -this is a original and closed specie so please don't copy or make your own, thank you ; v ; <3 -
