These are tiny creatures that feed off the energy of other living creatures by attaching to their spinal cords with tiny membrane-like tendrils. Through these tendrils, they can sync to the minds of their host, communicating silently.
In their regular forms, the Aadikaya appear as tiny fluffy bodies with wings. Once they attach to a host and gain extra energy, their wingspan will stretch to accommodate their host, essentially allowing for the bonded Snjorrir to be able to fly.
+ Lilya: The gentler, more docile strain of the breed, these are the caregivers and nurturers. The wings of the Lilya are soft and downy, plush and beautiful to the eye. Some Lilya have intricate wing designs and decoration feathers too, however these feathers are often pulled out by the Haarya during a breeding.
The Lilya are far more empathic and in tune with their hosts. They do not require as much sustenance from their hosts, and tap as little energy as possible. They will also be sure to detach if they feel their host getting too weak to sustain them both.
- Haarya: The dominant strain of the breed, these are more powerful, but they leech far more energy from their host, and have been known to kill their hosts through steady unceasing energy drains. In the wild, they will attack first and ask questions later.
In appearance, the Haarya have rougher wings with the ability to sharpen their feathers at will to make them almost knife like. They use their wings in battle, cutting opponents down mercilessly. The Haarya barely ever allow their wings to soften fully, never wanting to be caught completely off guard. They usually only ever have totally soft wings when fledglings or when they're with their life mate. When with a host they have bonded to and trust, they will soften their wings almost fully, but there will remain a slight roughness.
Must be Lilya x Harya pairings. No inter-type breeding is possible, as Harya are not able to bear flits.
The Aadikaya lay small eggs, which are proportionate to their body size, and like any egg, they'll grow some once exposed to the air. If there are lots of eggs in the nest, the smaller they’ll end up being, the fewer the eggs in their nest, the (slightly) larger the eggs will be, egg size (and resulting hatchling size) are all very dependent on the space they have in their nest. The amount of eggs an Aadikaya can lay varies between one and five, five being a rarer occurrence. Two to four eggs is considered a good clutch, while the one lone egg is cherished for the simple fact that there’s only one of them, and since it’ll have to grow up without fluff-mates.
Harya have a 25% likelihood in appearing in any breeding (just because there are four fluff-babies doesn’t mean there’ll be a guaranteed Harya) – random means will determine the outcome of all breedings.
Upon receiving the amount of eggs that your breeding brought, there will be a one week 'incubation period' where the eggs may not be hatched ahead of time. This allows for the designs to be created and refined, maybe even an adorable little momma and egg picture with their Snjorrir protector, and then they may be brought to life at the end of the seventh day! Members are allowed to ask advice on designs during the week long wait by posting what they have, but know, they are not 'alive' nor roleplay/bondable until the week is up and they've finally been hatched.
The mothers must have at least a week and a half between each breeding (to care for her clutch and recoup for the next breeding experience, and hopefully regrow some of their lost feathers). However adorable these are, over-breeding is looked down upon - there's only so much their fluffy bodies can take!

During the months of January, April, July, and October, there is a higher chance of increased clutch sizes, where the possibility of a five egg clutch is much higher than any other month out of our year.
