What are Special Traits?



  Special traits develop on an Isomara at birth or are achieved through certain events in an Isomara's life. They are the traits marked with a purple circle in the species trait guide. They will not always be available through normal adoptions, however, events like giveaways and draw-to-adopts are likely to have them. Courting two Isomara also gives a chance at special traits that are only gotten through birth. Both Adults and Isolings can earn special traits, however, Isolings may only earn Feathered Ears, Shaped Pupils, and fluff cuffs.
  Many traits have their own requirements. You need to do everything met for time and art/literature or you can simply purchase the trait using PayPal, Points or Seashells. 
Comment in the Import Edits journal to apply special traits to your Isomara.



How to Get Special Traits


Pastelpurple-orb by kayosa-stock TIME  Pastelpurple-orb by kayosa-stock
All special traits will have a time minimum.This means your Isomara needs to be so old to get a trait. (Go by the date the ID was posted to IsomaraIndex )
    Example: To get -insert trait here- this Isomara needs to be two months old.
NOTE: you do not need to wait an additional number of months after getting one special trait to get another. So if your Isomara is a year old and able to get fluff cuffs this means as long as you have the art or writing done you can also get any special trait whose time requirement is less than a year.

Most special traits will require you to draw at least 3 things. Some require you to draw other Isomara as well. You may submit multiple drawings in one deviation as an art dump.
To upgrade an Isomara to have a trait make sure the time requirement is met and all art is done, then comment in the Import Edits journal linking the Isomara and images.
        Here is the kind of art that is acceptable:
                • Full body drawings/paintings (digital or traditional) - Must be colored
                • Animations - No special traits should require animation but any normal drawing may be made as one as a bonus to receive more seashells.
                • Sculptures/figures/plushies - Again there shouldnt be any required for these, but maybe if you do I'll give you a nice little reward.
        
        What won't count:
                • Sketches & Uncolored - Black and white drawings do not count.
                • Multiple Headshots/busts - Some will allow you to draw one, but no you cannot draw 5 head shots for a trait.                
                • Bases - You may not use a base from someone else or use one you made. Just coloring something that has been used before will not count.
                • Pixel art smaller than 100 x 100 pixels
NOTE: You may not "double dip" on art for getting special traits. This means if two seperate traits require a bust you may not use one bust for both special traits. you must have seperate art for each trait.
Orange-orb by kayosa-stock LITERATURE  Orange-orb by kayosa-stock
You can also write instead of draw for the traits. When writing for the trait you will have a minimum word limit that you have to reach. There is a requirement for your story to involve aspects similar to how the artists have to do things. As long as you can describe your Isomara, the setting, and make sure you can involve those aspects in someway creatively you can easily get special traits by writing.

Don't have time to draw/write? Then you have other ways to get these traits. Each trait listed below says how much they are worth.Purchasing special traits through currency means you do not need to meet the Time requirement, or art/literature requirement.They start cheap, but with every Isomara with the trait, the price may rise, the price may also declin. To purchase a special trait comment in the Import Edits journal with the Isomara you want to buy it for and which method of payment you choose (PayPal, Points, or Seashells).

:DarkRed-orb: by kayosa-stock EVENTS  :DarkRed-orb: by kayosa-stock
Events are an easy way to get the traits you want, but there are limits to winners, and also the trait you want might not always be the prize. The different events may include, Draw to Adopts (DTA), giveaways, and other prompt like events.

Birth Special Traits


10. Black Primary:    Isomara are known to be a colorful species, however there are isomara born with dark unsaturated colors. 
            Ex.  026 - Hunter by IsomaraIndex 034 - Guidance by IsomaraIndex 055 - Kryptid by IsomaraIndex 102 - Reni by IsomaraIndex 182 - Talli by IsomaraIndex
        - Isomara must be born with this trait. It cannot be earned or bought.
        - To qualify for this special trait the base coat must have a saturation level of 15 or less and a value level of 50 or less. Hue color does not matter.



11. Dyed Whites:
    This trait is when an Isomara appears to have colors on the white parts of its fur. An Isomara's mane, wings, ear fluff, and underside of most tails are always white unless they have this special condition.
            Ex.  011 - Nello by IsomaraIndex 007 - Sen by IsomaraIndex 027 - Avril by IsomaraIndex 189 - Theodosia by IsomaraIndex        
    - Isomara can be born with this trait or sometimes 'earn' this trait. The ones who were not born with this trait were shamed by others, for doing something against their own kind. Other Isomara will kidnap the offender in their sleep and dye their mane, wings, and other areas to show they are outcasts. These Isomara are then exiled.            - Ones born with this are not offenders or exiled, but are treated with distance by others in most cases. 





12. No Scent:        
    - Most Isomara have a flowery scent to them this scent is stronger when they are wet, but very few are born without the secretion scent glands which make them smell like pretty flowers. You may choose what flower your Isomara smell like.
    - This trait allows an Isomara to go near undetected on the island. A +5% resistance to Memic attacks.
    - Isomara must be born with this trait. It cannot be earned or bought.



13. Snaggle Tooth:
    Additional large teeth that protrude out of the mouth.
            Ex. 003 - Kalabasa by IsomaraIndex 158 - Finnly by IsomaraIndex
    - Isomara must be born with this trait. It cannot be earned or bought.



14. Bioluminescence:
    Woah! You glow... well partially. This trait allows certain parts of your Isomara to glow in the dark. This special trait allows partial areas/colors/markings of an Isomara to glow. And Optionally can also cause mouths, eyes, teeth, and claws to glow. The Isomara does not gain new markings its current markings can glow Glowing Color Ex.

            Ex.  226 - Bioluminescence by IsomaraIndex
    - Isomara have a chance to be born with this trait if they were conceived in a nest made out ectoplasm instead of goom goo. 
    - There is also a 5% chance of gaining this trait when consuming ectoplasm. Be careful though as Ectoplasm can cause an upset stomach!



15. Unsymmetrical:
    
- This could be anywhere from mismatched patterned pelt to different shaped common horns. If the Isomara is not symmetrical on each side then it has this trait (This does not count crazy splatter markings and marbled like pelts as that would be way to hard to make the same on both sides).        
    - Isomara are born with this trait and it cannot be earned/bought.
                Ex.  240 - Pepper by IsomaraIndex  



Special Trait F.A.Q.


Q. Will there be more special traits revealed?
A. Yes, some special traits can only be discovered through breeding or random events.

Q. Is there a way to exile my Isomara to get the Dyed White trait?
A. Perhaps, we do want to implement a way, but for now, it's unknown.

Q. Can I draw multiple Isomara in the same picture to have it count for both?
A. No, sadly you cannot double dip when it comes to special traits. Each Isomara will have to have their own separate drawings/ literature.
