Now, some of the creatures I've created are pretty normal. Tweaked here and there, of course. I do have to give credit to my friends who helped me with this stuff. Lynn, Karen, Larry of course and lots of my LoC friends. (Legends of Cosrin) I have a whole Credits page on my website, here.
So, Kefferlings. Pronounced Kehf er ling. Sorry, I do this as phonetically as I can. Onetta (Aun's best friend) is a Kefferling. These came into being through two friends of mine, Karen and Lynn. Lynn played a Kefferling in Cosrin and Karen came up with the name. Basically, they're Elf Cats.
There was a tribe of Wood Elves that a Mahjii (Wizard in Eir du'Brusai) was battling. He cursed them all, casting a spell that turned some into cat-like creatures and turned others into dogs. While the dogs were turned all the way, the Mahjii was killed before the spell finished. Those who were turned into cats kept the majority of their Elven features. While they were still humanoid in appearance, they gained tails, fur and even feline ears and facial features. Their noses were feline as were their eyes, but their mouths were not. Some had striped fur while others had calico markings. They also gained retractable claws. They are very agile, curious like cats. They can purr and mewl when content or frightened, they growl and hiss when fighting. Kefferlings have kept their Elvish habits as far as mates and children, they can have only one child and only if they've been properly united by an Elvish Priest or Priestess.
I enjoy writing about the Kefferlings like you would not believe! Mainly because I have cats, I can watch them and incorporate their actions into my Elf cats. Very, very fun! Let's see... next will be... oh yes. The Belching Scurvy Knave. He'll be fun. Lol!
