MARBLED


Marbled or marbling is a rare mutation that affects tawny coats, splattering them with erratic patches of black.

Quick Guide


Genotype:
    - Heterozygeous: n/a
    - Homozygeous: n/a
Phenotype: [MARBLED MUTATION]
Type: Mutation
Pass Rate: Both hereditary and non-hereditary; appears when a black tokota is bred to a tawny tokota. Very rare.
Layer: Wildcard
Sits Above: May optionally sit above or below everything except for top layer markings.
Sits Below: Top layer markings (minimum marked, piebald + all variations, vitiligo, starmarks, seal, restricted seal, shadowmarks, and barring). May optionally sit below any other markings.
Special Interactions: May optionally be affected by cream and lilac. Shows on leucistic and melanistic tokotas.
Premade Pack: n/a
Videos/Tutorials: n/a




RANGE


Marbling has no specified placement or required range; it may appear anywhere you'd like on the tokota's body!
Typically it is more concentrated on the torso, face, and legs, but it may appear anywhere.



MINIMUM & MAXIMUM


At least 25% of the tokota should be covered in marbling, at minimum.
At maximum, no more than 75% of the tokota should be covered by marbled.

On the left is a good example of minimum marbling, and on the right, a good example of maximum.

Here we have examples of too little (left) and too much (right):

SHAPE & EXPRESSION


The shape of marbling is exotic and unpredictable, it does not have a definitive shape.
Typically, marbling resembles tortoiseshell/calico cats or African wild dogs in its patterning:




The only rule about its shape is that it must be spotty and splotchy.
Marbled cannot cover a large portions of the coat in a solid blanket of black.

COLOR


Similar to marked, unless cream or lilac is present,
marbling is always black, splattered on top of a tawny base coat.

Non-modified marbled must always be black in color.
This does not mean that it has to be 100% black (#000000)
or "true" black at all times, but it should always be black in appearance;
it should not be saturated at all, nor should it be so light that it looks grey.

Here is a suggested  swatch for non-modified marbled:
Marked00 by DesignDen

The example on the left is correct: it is black on top of tawny.
The example on the right is incorrect: marbling should not
be saturated at all unless cream or lilac is present!
Correct Color by DesignDenIncorrect Color by DesignDen
Note: The example on the right would be acceptable marbled color if cream was present.



MARBLING + OTHER MARKINGS


Marbling may sit above or below any marking except for top markings.
(I.E; minimum marked, piebald + all variations, vitiligo, starmarks, seal,
restricted seal, shadowmarks, and barring will always sit above marbled.)

MARBLED + MODIFIERS
Greying = does not affect marbling, will not lighten it; marbling remains black on top of grey tawny.
Cream = lightens and slightly saturates marbled; marbling will be pale brown on top of cream tawny
Lilac = effects marbled as if would any marking; marbling will be a luscious blue on top of lilac tawny.

When affected by lilac, marbled should pick in the middle blue hue.
Saturation should not exceed 30, as is with any marking on a lilac tokota.
Here is a suggested swatch for lilac marbled color:

Note: Dun will not affect the color of marbled.

Left: Marbled + Grey (Not Affected)  |  Right: Marbled + Cream
LilacMarble by DesignDenMarble + Lilac by DesignDen
Left: Marbled + Lilac  |  Right: Marbled + Cream + Lilac


Optionally, marbling may also remain black on cream and lilac tokotas. It's up to you!

MARBLED + OTHER MUTATIONS
Marbling does not show on albino, bloodmark, or cross tokotas.
Marbling may show on chimera (may sit above or below both patched and brindle chimera).
Marbling is not effected by the reversal mutation. It will remain black on reversal tokotas.
Marbling remains black on melanistic tokotas.
On leucistic tokotas marbling will be a golden color (similar to how shadowmarks are affected)

Any chance of an extended marbling gene in the future? Would love to see some black tortie Tokos :,D

Up to 75% of the tokota's body can currently be covered with marbled, which would make an extended marbled range a bit difficult to distinguish from maximum regular marbled.

However, we will certainly keep this in mind for the future. Torties really are beautiful c:

"Note: The example on the left would be acceptable marbled color if cream was present."

Appologies, I don't want to sound rude or anything, but I think from my understanding of the cream modifier is maybe this line  ^ is meant to say RIGHT instead of left in the Colour section.

( If I am wrong, sorry for bothering XD)

Does dun still affect marked while on marble?
Reply  ·  
craeve's avatar
Yup, what leo said ^^

Dun can still affect marked as it normally would. It just isnt able to change the color of marbled, like cream or lilac can.

Yes. ^^

Not an admin anymore, but I put the majority of this guide together when I was,
and afaik, marbled doesn't affect the way marked interacts with other genes. c:
