Noboena  [ nu-bu-i-nah ]
[ i dunno, looked cool ]

Noboenians are a species of black to white characters that resemble closely to what people would assume as anthros.  
Some having more human like qualities, some more animal, depending on the area they’re from.

As far as determining sex/gender, Noboenians do not exactly have set genitalia to either male or female. [ some having neither, to some having both ]
The way of finding this out is the main shade of their fur;  black being masculine, white being feminine. 
Though colours nearest to grey are the more difficult to decipher and can usually mean they are strictly not male or female.


Status is determined by what animals they’re made up of. 
For example, Xi; he’s purely fox, meaning he has a high status where are someone like Milli, who is made of a cat father and bird mother, would be lower. 
Then other’s made up of 3 or more animals are the lowest and sometimes homeless; the so called scum of this world. 
More times than most there are also mutants in this low status and holds many strange and sick Noboenians.


For the most part, clothes are used only on children. 
Not only to hide their genitalia as it develops but to also notify the child is under 13 years of age. 
Those who wear clothes that are over this age either means they’re not ready to give up their child like qualities
or that they’re bodies haven’t completely finished growing. 


Very rarely do clothes stay on passed the age of 20,
though a light amount of clothing such as scarfs, socks, arm warmers,
or anything of the sort is allowed but not appropriate in some cases.

Depending on popularity, light clothing can also be used in some groups as identification. 



The more human like qualities are those who live in the city or those of royalty; showing plantigrade legs. 
Those from anywhere else such as the country, tropics or deserts, are normally digigrade. 
All children are born with plantigrade, which is what makes it just as hard to figure out status till they’re over 12 or 13
the age their legs begin to completely develop into the different types. 
Some mutations that follow with a lower status is that a child can be born with one leg being digi and the other planti. 
Or planti that’s built to be digi [ walking on their tip toes ].

Their mouths aren’t all that special, though some have ridges in the lips and some don’t. 
They have teeth but they usually retract into their gums until needed; only showing the 4 canines for the most part. 
They’re omnivores and like humans, they can choose to be vegetarians and other things such as that.


A trait that very few have is a super ability, such as Xi with telekinesis or Milli with flight.
{{{ Those with bird-like genetics aren’t granted the ability to fly from birth, some don’t even grow wings.  e. g. Birdman }}}

Other things like controlling of an element, speed, strength, and intelligence are also available. 
But again, not everyone has this ability and can come off as rare or fantasy-like. 
Some say it’s a show of mutation while others say it’s a blessing.

Children are very important in this world, many believing they're the key to a bright future.
Though there are some parents that leave their children behind, claiming them orphans
Most parents like this are either dead or sick, believe it to be more on save yourself purposes
but to every child there is a guardian; a child that's left to fend for themselves wont survive on their own for long
due to many older Noboenians that souly search for these children to take care of

Go ahead and ask questions if you have any- this is just what I can manage to put together on them right now
once there's been a good amount of them, I'll put the questions, and the answer on this journal


Attack on Titan joke. Ready?

What type of students do titans love to eat most?


Yeah, lame, but I had to get this out.

The last thing I want to do is get serious just before the big happy Halloween Stream journal but here goes; 

I thought I should say this considering several interactions I've had over the past couple of weeks, so consider this to be just a little a tip.

Don't shit on people's prices. Don't shit on people for pricing things at a certain amount, don't roll your eyes and sigh because a myo slot is higher than twenty bucks. You know what you should do if you don't like it?
  • don't buy one
  • there's literally no step two just don't buy one and move on with your life
It's at a point where I'm seeing more and more artists being talked down to or snarked or looked down on just because they have a higher price on their designs or the ability to make one of their species. If someone's going to buy, they'll buy. You don't have to. You are not required to. 

Another thing: Maybe an artist is putting out designs or myos to go towards buying another design. That's their own business and isn't yours. Maybe they're treating themselves after a bad day, or maybe they just successfully paid off some bills (like me!!) and think they deserve to put aside a bit of money for a design. And you know what that's totally fine? So what if they're not furiously stockpiling everything away because they're in some dire situation at this current point in time - YOU don't know their situation, and they're not required to tell you. YOU don't have to get annoyed because of their decisions because they do not impact you or your life in any way whatsoever.

I'm really, really tired of seeing other artists get picked on for their prices. Already I see so many people underpricing their work because they're afraid of getting attacked by other people because, like it or not, art is seen as a lesser job. That's an unfortunate fact. And I'll be frank - I would LOVE to charge $50 for a common garrox I honest to god would, but frankly I'm too much of a wuss to deal with exactly what I've pointed out here. 

So from one really frustrated artist to a huge spectrum of other artists; Please be quiet. Let people do what they want. It isn't your problem in the slightest. Thanks.
