Herbarvuli - Species Ref Sheet by SythraNightshade Herbarvuli - Species Ref Sheet by SythraNightshade
New privat species~

I've created them because I want more diversity for my original world. 
I'll make more species for my world in the future :)


Like my other species, the Líthropoi, Herbarvoli are closer to nature than Humans/Elves/etc.. Their elements are earth and water. (Líthropois elements are earth and fire)

Species Name: Herbarvuli (sing. Herbarvulus)

Natural Habitat: Jungle

Appearance: Their anatomy is somehow childlike but still with mature aspects. They have tanned skin with tabby like stripes on it. When it's dark one can see luminescent dots on their skins. Their eyes are big and yellow with slit pupils. Herbarvuli don't have human noses, they have rather flat noses with ridges on them. Their ears remind of leafs and change colours through seasons. Every Herbarvulus has black hair, which is mostly tied back in some way and they also wear one braid on each side in front of the ears. Their teeth are a little sharper than human ones. They also have webbing between their fingers and toes.

Herbarvuli clothing is mostly simple and held in brown colours. The clothing often also doesn't cover a lot of the body since it's hot where they live. One special thing about the dressing style are the "overskirts" that Herbarvuli are wearing over their trousers. Those overskirts are very colourful and bright coloured, mostly the patterns are made to resemble the looks of butterfly and bird wings. These are, amongst other things, used to distract. 

 Their overall senses are more sensitive than human ones. Herbarvuli have very sharp eyes and can also see in the dark. Their hearing is very good as well. They have some kind of sixth sense due to their connection to nature/plants, they can kind of feel their surrounding through the vegetation.

They keep a kind of big reptile (jungle varans) as pets and also ride on them. They also do that with other animals.
Herbarvuli have a "green thumb", meaning they can literally make plants grow faster by touching them. 
They're immune to poison.
They don't like strangers, in fact they're pretty xenophobic and will defend their territory against others (which includes killing individuals who enter their forest without warning).
They might look innocent but they're not.

makes me kind of think of mermaids with the webbed fingers. but I love how you added a whole bunch of things like the glowing eyes/luminescent glow like the deep-sea fish, and the stripping of tigers(or zebras) and the leaf-like ears that change depending on the season, the the fact that they don't really have noses.
then there's is the teeth, I know it says fangs but all I see are normal teeth like a human. :XD: sorry if it sounds rude I don't mean it to be ^^;

They're also pretty good swimmers :P maybe not as good as mermaids but still good XD 
They do have onivore teeth just like humans! Just that their Fangs & other teeth are a bit sharper than ours :D
I'm in the process of changing them too. I've changed the patterns on their skin already (just not on the sheet) [You cans see that here] and I want to add a few other things, including less human feet (so that they can climb better) and a tail (also for climbing). I'll also introduce different types & more fashion :D
Ongoing project as you can see! Still a lot to do :)
