[RP Wiki] Alluran Flora and Fauna


#1

Introduction

The realm of Allura is home to many races and nations of sentient intelligent beings, but besides that nobody talks about the wildlife. Over time, players have introduced rather specific species into lore and these creatures will be documented here. Species not included in lore can also be included here. If your nation has a unique species, feel free to write an entry, however, something more common (Like dragons, or other commonly known fantasy creatures) needs to be a unique specific version of it (e.g. Roklavian sparrow, black drake, and so on).
Please include a picture that best represents the creature. The staff has made this a wiki.

Rules:

  1. Need a title, region of origin, picture, and author.
  2. Has to be your own idea, ask the original creator if you want to enter their creature.
  3. Be descriptive, talk about its origin, habits, historical significance, etc. Make it interesting to read!
  4. Do NOT link episodes in here, it’ll simply get too cluttered.
  5. Do NOT comment entries. This is a wiki, edit the article.
  6. Keep descriptions somewhat brief. 2-3 paragraphs max. This is a wiki list entry, not a natural philosophy text book.
  7. Comment what you added or changed in the reply section.

I will reserve the right to format, spellcheck, and rearrange the details in this post. Please don’t be offended if I correct grammar or shorten entries that are too wordy.


Animals

Nordenyan Wendigo


Origin: Northwestern Nordrenya
Wendigos are a rare sight, because of how few people survived after spotting one. These solitary freaks of nature roam the Nordrenyan hinterlands and never come close to settlements. Legend says that Wendigos are the deformed corpses of lost and forsaken travelers, frozen to death ages ago. They appear to look like starved deer standing on their hind legs, but their arms are elongated and have razor sharp claws. The sounds they make resemble a cry, or a scream, somewhat resembling the voice of a tortured human. Their behavior is generally hostile, as they are always hungry, but they tend to try to isolate individual victims, staying away from large groups. Wendigo victims are often found half-devoured, with claw marks covering the entire body. - @Music

Roklavian Firebird


Origin: Roklavia
This majestic creature is traditionally associated with Roklavian royalty. Although they are believed to be extinct, firebirds are described as bright orange and gold in appearance. As a lavish display during mating season, male firebirds burst into flame and dance elegantly to attract a mate. Sometimes they use this ability to kill prey, engulfing the frightened rodent or bird in flames. Essentially on-the-spot barbecue. As the firebird is a symbol of power in Roklavia, Queen Valentina chose it as her sigil without hesitation. - @Music

Roklavian Sparrow


Origin: Roklavia
The Roklavian sparrow is a common songbird in the North, and is characterized by its bright orange head and body. Its diet consists of seeds, berries, and bugs. These birds can be seen in Roklavia during summertime and fall. Scholars attribute this to the fact that the bright colors present in these seasons enable the sparrow to stay hidden from predators. - @Music

Smertangelsk Hellhound


Origin: Smertangelsk
These existence of these creatures is blamed on the catastrophic end of Queen Valentina’s short reign. Originating from a hellish dimension that was used for mining quartz and precious metals, these creatures roam the empty streets of Smertangelsk. Their primary quirk is that they are blind, and depend on a keen sense of hearing to navigate and hunt down prey. The only way to tame one is to be more evil (subjectively) than it. - @Music

Plants

Bloodfeather Grass


Origin: Maeythia
A unique kind of grass that covers the eastern volcanic region of Vallenora. Besides being a ground-cover, having a few medicinal qualities, and looking pretty…it’s just grass…but red. - @Music

Calledian Fire Shrub (Laminariceae Ludiferasa)


Origin: Calledian Sea
Growing on the deepest areas of the Calledian sea floor, this aquatic bush grows flowers with six sepals and six stamens borne in a terminal raceme. The plant can grow to 15–150 cm in height. It grows in bunches with the leaves wrapped around and extending from a small the base plant itself at the sea floor sediment. The leaves are 30–100 cm long and 2–6 mm wide, dull olive green with toothed edges. The slightly fragrant white flowers emerge from a tall stalk that bolts from the base and give off a strong white light. When the flowers are in bloom they are tightly packed at the tip of the stalk like an upright club.

Marubi natives have been recorded to gather the flowers of the bush for ceremonial use.

Before its discovery, light from the fire shrubs were often mistaken for divine presence by sailors. Since their classification it is used for navigational purposes in poor wind conditions.

Karri Tree


Origin: West Vallenora
The Karri tree is a sturdy plant related to the common pine, however it has developed a most peculiar fruit to appease the local ape population. Karrifruit, the product of the plant, long, thin, maroon flowers around the time when summer comes. After a moon these are replaced by miniscule red spheres, which eventually turn orange once ripe. Karrifruit is harvested diligently by vallenoran farmers. Today it has spread as far east as Lavande and Kaldaross.
