Magical Creatures

Infused with the natural force known as magic, the planet Evo possesses an incredible level of biodiversity, featuring a wide range of life forms living in close proximity to form an ecosystem that would be impossible back on Earth. Although all life on Evo generates and utilizes magical energy in some capacity, many species are capable of further storing and transforming magic within their own bodies, enabling an incredible variety of spell like abilities. Plants and animals capable of using magical energy are known as magically gifted and most magical creatures are able to consume at least one form of elemental aspected energy as well as the ambient magic infusing their habitats.

Brogan: Similar to gigantic buffalo, these docile yet intelligent creatures are known for their benign temperament and commonly serve as family pets in addition to being a primary form of transportation and manual labor for Kif farmsteads. Possessing complex and elegant marking to their fur, Brogan are highly intelligent and social. Brogan are able to absorb earth aspected energy in order to achieve a level of strength and endurance well beyond that provided by their already powerful bodies.

Hangman’s Noose: These carnivorous plants are capable of slowly moving through the canopy. When they detect a game trail, they lower themselves down and wait for unsuspecting prey to pass nearby. The stalk of the hangman’s noose possesses specialized fibers containing earth and water magics, enabling the plant to rapidly constrict with incredible force, often slaying smaller animals outright while slowly crushing larger beasts that are immobilized by the plant’s initial strike. The corpses of their prey provide the hangman’s noose with the nutrients required for growth and propagation, as well as an additional source of magical energy. Whenever Hangman’s noose are spotted near civilized lands, the Kif set out to eradicate the vines with a vengeance, as the deadly plants invariably claim at least a few lives every year.

Wyverns: Native to the mountains and high reaches of Evo, the mystic wyvern is a powerful predator. Their dazzling, highly malleable scales vary wildly depending on their roosting area, from sky blue to mud brown, and slowly change over time if a wyvern moves to a new area. Wyverns utilize air magic to enable their muscular forms to fly, overpowering any creature unlucky enough to encounter its powerful jaws and talons. Each adult wyvern claims a vast expanse of wilderness for their personal territory, so sightings of more than one at a time are almost unheard of outside of mating season.
