Kriik/Kriiks

BannerBirdsComp.png

A certain type of organic growth always grows on a kriik's forehead, depending of the subtype. The growth grows from the middle of the forehead, usually forming a crown-like look.

One kriik can only grow one type of organic growth, but the size and maturity of the organic growth can vary freely.

There must always be at least a sapling/small growth on a kriik's head!

Eyes
Kriik eyes can be any color and shape. Kriiks have sensitive eyes, so they usually keep them closed during the day.

During light and darkness they use little chitter to navigate!

Ripple

Corals, Seaweeds and Water plants

Ripple kriiks have strong arms and webbed toes, designed for moving in water. Unlike the other subtypes, these kriiks enjoy eating fish, which makes their plumage shiny and water-repellent. Some ripples like smearing mud on themselves to cool off, though it is not a common practice.

Lifespan: 250
Diet: Bugs, sometimes small game

QUIRKS

Quirks are traits a kriik can obtain.

Once a kriik has a quirk, the quirk can be turned on and off, or change its looks. For example, a kriik that has a wing quirk could freely change between bird and bat wings.
