HEY GUYS! So there is this contest I really wanted to join, Im glad i made it with just some time left e w e! So these Dextros are for the Region Inferno and I thought up a fun way to present the traits! You all know if the Speak/Hear/See no Evil "series" right? BAM! Thats basically how im presenting these things haha! I had so much fun thinking up the lore O hope you like my ideas uwu
“In the middle of the journey of our life I found myself within a dark woods where the straight way was lost.”
― Dante Alighieri, Inferno
Dextroluma from this region may exhibit 3 unusual traits:
::SEE NO EVIL::
The region is filled with horrifying sights. Many are on their knees, begging for mercy, for death. Unable to carry on and merely avert their gaze to the suffering, Dextros from Inferno may opt to stitch their eyes. They are horrified by the sights of torment, desperation, and suffering that some have decided to rather see nothingness instead. These Dextroluma stitch their eyes with a curious red string called "Destiny Threads", to symbolize the red strings the Fates themselves cut to end lives.
::HEAR NO EVIL::
Chilling screams fill the air. Wailing, and weeping, the sounds of tormented souls haunt the Inferno region. Because of this, Dextros have adapted a fin type called "Angel's wings" to reduce hearing actual sound. Instead, the broad surface area of the fin type better picks up vibrations in the air generated by the sound waves. These fins are also of very fine and thin material, for the purpose mentioned previously as well. Basically Dextros with this type of trait cannot hear sound/are deaf, but are aware of even the tiniest vibrations, from the flutter of insect wings, to the drop of a coin, from many meters away.
::SPEAK NO EVIL::
Even being accustomed to the terrors of their region, these Dextroluma are unable to speak of what they have seen, heard... experienced! Traumatized beyond belief, they refuse to tell the tales of their Region and would rather the nightmarish stories die with them. To tell the stories of the damned would break hearts and tear souls. It would be best if no one really knew how awful the Inferno region truly is. The magic mushrooms that grow in this region are called “Persephone’s Mushrooms” and as mentioned in the region guide, they are extremely poisonous and corrosive. Dextros who have attempted to consume this mushroom type have their mouths melted off. "Melted" mouth types observed in Dextros who live in this region speak in confusing tongues that no one can really decipher and understand... Perhaps it is better this way.
