EDIT 7/2/18: So I just realized today that I haven't updated this thing in 4 years and a lot of stuff was inaccurate sooo update! I also removed some questions that either were not helpful or were answered within the comic itself.

Now I have some big gaps on the comic/character side so if anyone has a question for that side in particular, but also ANY sections, lemme know! :END EDIT

*  *  *

This FAQ sheet is primarily meant to answer questions that would not come up in the comic itself, or else do but need refreshers. If a question will be answered in the comic eventually, I probably won't include it.

In regards to Ambivian antennae:
I give Ayemae big thanks with helping me figure this out! Here is the basics of how antennae work:

    In early developmental history for the species, some males developed a "masking gene" in their chromosomes that caused a lacking of antenna. These males have this mutation on their "Y" chromosome, which means it is transferred only to males. So every son of an Ambivian male that lacks antennae will also lack antennae. Here is a chart to explain further: Handy-Dandy Antennae Gene Chart

If you have more questions to ask feel free to ask them here!
Also, if you spy any misspellings, feel free to let me know.

Ambivian fanchars?
What?
AlfaFilly's avatar
Fan characters, so people who want to make their own Ambivians. :)
Raptorwolf-AML's avatar
Oh!
You can do that? :O

You say only royals have three tails, but Kailani have three and also eye markings. Will it be explained later?
AlfaFilly's avatar
She is Royal, though. She's just a hybrid that has Royal Ambivian blood.
19646's avatar
Ah, what is her other part? :3c I love your story, btw. Re-read it so many times, it's ridiculous <3
AlfaFilly's avatar
She's half Lanive and half Ambivian c: Lanives are these lizard/dino lookin' dudes haha
Ahhhh thank yooou <3 I'm glad you enjoy it. I must not disappoint! :ohnoes:
19646's avatar
Aah, those! That makes sense, to be honest. You really incorporated that into her design :3

You never disappoint <3 You are awesome :3 :la:
AlfaFilly's avatar
Awww thanks! I have fun with her design most of the time. Other times it annoys the heck out of me pff Drawing it at least!

Awww no YOU are awesome :dummy:
19646's avatar
Okay, we can BOTH be awesome :D

But you're the awesomest XD
Aileea's avatar
Thank you, this is interesting.
I also like that a dream inspired you do do this story. Because so far, I have written two stories based on dreams too. I wish I had inspiring dreams like that more often.
AlfaFilly's avatar
It's really fun! I've had several stories result from dreams, be them just ideas or actually something that got put down, but TS is my biggest one. They are so interesting and fun. :XD: If only there was a way to make it happen on command!
Aileea's avatar
Yes, I wish there was a way to make it happen on command too. For sure I could need it, as I am in a sort of creative crisis. I always hope for some creative dreams but I rarely have dreams at all these days. However, one of my most useable ones was also one of my most recent ones.
AlfaFilly's avatar
Ooh, well that works out at least! What was it?
And for real, I hate art block or just general "creative crisis" as you said. Makes motivation really hard to come by!

It was about so called "Ornament Hares", which are hares with delicate markings who love statues and have a lot of them in their villages. They also maintain and decorate them very often. The Ornament Hares live together with another species which is some sort of winged anteater that lives mainly of ants and has a special "ant stomach" just for digesting ants. I plan to upload some pictures of the species and characters I make from them once they and their designs are set. In my dream, they prepared for a celebration that was quite important to them which involves playing ritual drums in fromt of a Stone temple (imagine the whole setting kind of Inka-ish). But the drums awake a third species, the so-called "Stoneheads" which are more humanlike in looks but completely bald. The playing of the drums which woke them from their slumber also disturbs and annoys them so they try to stop the celebration with their powers to control stone. So far the dream... to develop the story further is up to me.

So true... my motivation has been quite low over the past weeks, if not months. That I have so little time left does not help either. But somehow I feel that something might go this weekend... at least I plan to write something again.

(sorry for belatedness!)

But ooh that sounds really cool :0 That sounds like a totally awesome little culture. Would make an interesting story if ever pursued I wager.
Also hares <3

Gaaah that's the problem - finding time. And, of course, whenever you find time you lack motivation. That's usually how it goes for me haha
Aileea's avatar
No problem. :)

Thanks. I have already begun to write the story down, also made concept pictures of the species and characters.
AlfaFilly's avatar
Ooh? have you? 8D (Also sorry for late replies again!)

Ah well this is a start! Now to do the rest of the revamp! 

And I feel that very soon I'll get back into my endless question asking. Get ready for that!

So, considering the gang aren't full blooded royals, is that what their little white flower thing signified? In the earlier pages it left it a mystery but I feel that maybe that's it? Though at the same time Garin has that as well.. I'm not sure about his heritage though. I know he's mixed race (obviously!) but I know that CP is constantly changing so what I knew about him and his conception before could be totally irrelevant now xD

Really excited for all this Filly!!
