The Façade Species: Nise (Closed Species)
I have seriously just had so many ideas for new closed species recently xD It's crazy :3
. This species is based off of a façade, which is a deceitful personality.
. When a Nise is born, they have part of a mask on their face, and as they grow up, the masks eventually covers their whole face, and the masks personality becomes theirs completely, and their real personalities are covered up and are never to be known by others. (Which is why they are known as a façade.)
. There can be both good and bad mask personalities, and some masks personalities are rarer than others.
. The worse/better the personality, the rarer the mask. There are also some cases in which the mask is neutral, the personality of a neutral mask is usually placid, or docile. They tend to lack emotion and sometimes be quite unkind without knowing.
. Each mask may have one or more different colours, they can also vary in shape, some that have ears, may eventually lose those ears for them to become part of the actual Nise's anatomy. (I.e.: If a mask has rabbit ears, after time the human may gain rabbit ears, same goes for horns.) Some masks have strings attached with different small shapes on them, they are usually laughed at, and most end up being cut off and put in secret places. The rare occasion that the mask has a shape that is worthy of staying, the Nise may choose to keep it, and will be looked up upon by others.
. There are masks for each and every personality trait, good and bad. Each personality mask will have a few colours on, usually reflecting the personality.
. Rarer masks include those with two personalities, depending on how different they are, they can have both bad and good effects. If the personalities are both good, the Nise is more likely to be popular among the other good masked Nise's, and get more so of a special treatment. If a Nise has two bad personalities, then they may become more evil, and although beloved by other evil masked Nise's, they will be corrupt and always do bad. If the mask has both a good and a bad personality, the Nise will argue with itself a lot, and eventually go crazy. In some cases one side will become the whole personality of the face, with the other side becoming brighter if it becomes good, and darker if it becomes bad. The half will still remain its true colour, but the colour is altered due to the whole of the mask being taken over by one side.
. The mask does show some of the Nise's face, their eyes and mouths are shown through, although their voices are altered slightly due to the masks, although they can speak normally, their true voices are never shown.
. In very rare cases, only half of the mask is developed at their full age, this can cause the uncovered face to be eventually taken over, if the mask successfully takes over the unmasked side, the eye of that side will become blind, and the Nise will become mute. If the unmasked side hasn't been taken over, the Nise will still hold half of its original personality, and until taken over, that personality may be revealed. Both sides of the Nise will argue with each other, and usually most half unmasked Nise's will go crazy.
. A Nise can live for up to 5000 years, but will die if their mask is taken off of them. There is an equal chance of the Nise being boy or girl. They are the slightly smaller than an average human. Usually being about 4ft tall.
. Nise's are able to breed, but only if their mask personalities are the same (As in, both should be good, or both should be bad.) Neutral Nise's have the possibility to breed with both bad, good or neutral Nise's, but are less likely to be able to find a partner due to their unemotional Reponses. The Nise that is born will only have part of its mask, but it will reveal whether or not it will have one of its parents mask personalities, or both.
. A Nise takes 100 years to grow into the size it will be for its whole life. Every 10 years the mask will develop and take over more of the face, and by 60 years it is known whether or not the Nise will be half masked or full masked.
. If a Nise commits the horrible act of taking off another Nise's mask and killing them, they have a chance to swap between the masks to change their personalities, they can also sell either there's or the other Nise's masks to make some money. Nise's are also able to buy masks for a high price to be able to switch personality. If a Nise owns more than one mask, they are able to switch masks by themselves to get a different personality, but it will not kill them. The only way they can die is if another Nise takes their mask off (which is hard to do, and requires specific skills.)
That's all, feel free to give me suggestions! :3
