Aphyd (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Adds +1 Affiliation Point to all Attyceps Network art duties. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons in the Attyceps Network affiliation.

When creating a custom skin, it must appear as an aphid-like creature with a tank of neon-colored liquid for a butt. It may have glittering particles, such as sparkles or shaped glitter. The tank does not need to be circular. They may have up to four tiny insect wings of any insect species.

These adorable creatures live in and around Attyceps hives. Some Attyceps even keep them as companions for their journeys. In exchange for safety and food, they provide a delicious honeydew to their caretakers. Its effect varies depending on what the Aphyd is fed. Aphyds that reach old age can shed their exoskeleton and reveal a small, winged, youthful version of their old selves. Their wings fall off after a few uses and their life cycle repeats.

Basilisk (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: This familiar can be soulbound to fire Riders. If their dragon is using fire magic, they gain +1 EXP.

When creating a custom skin, it may appear as a cross of any game bird or domestic bird and a snake.

These birds are well-known for blinding their enemies with their fiery breath. They do not make good house pets.

When creating a custom skin, you may change the species to any snail shell and leaf combo, in any color or pattern. The body of the Whirlybug should stay the same shape.

These little animals are known as the hive janitors. They happily munch on mold that grows where it's not supposed to. Given their slow speed, they can also be used as a forum board, and often have advertisements and public notices taped to their shells.

Nyandroid (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Small chance of acquiring 1 AP during any prompt. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons in the Naki Alliance. Can only be used by members of the Naki Alliance.

When creating a custom skin, it must appear as a bipedal feline robot.

Cats are cute, but what if they were also bipedal? After the first generation of Nyandroids were produced, they had their answer. Mischief. Lots of mischief. The project was cancelled, but somehow new ones keep turning up.

Ahuizotl (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Small chance of acquiring 1 AP during any prompt. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons in the Shéar Rebellion. Can only be used by members of the Shéar Rebellion.

When creating a custom skin, you may change the species to any small dog breed, as long as it has thumbs and water elemental effects.

This creature stalks the rivers of Shérok, pulling enemies of the land to their death. Should they encounter an ally in need, they deliver them to safer shores. It is common for people to bring dog biscuits when traveling through strange waters in case the creature cannot decide what to do.

Soulstealer (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Small chance of acquiring 1 AP during any prompt. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons in the Erré Coalition. Can only be used by members of the Erré Coalition.

When creating a custom skin, you may change the species to any fish, as long as it glows and has jellyfish-like souls nearby.

Despite its name, this creature is more like a collector. It swims along the deepest parts of the sea floor, gathering the shreds of souls that were too faded to become Phinae. Over the course of centuries, it can grow from a few inches to a hundred meters in length. This familiar is just a fry, though. It won't grow bigger unless you feed it.

Slime (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Small chance of acquiring 1 AP during any prompt. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons in the Naki Alliance. Can only be used by members of the Abrendese Militia.

When creating a custom skin, it must appear as a single-colored slime with no markings and one eye. It can be shaped as anything. It may be shiny, but it won't look like it's made with glitter.

Slimes are a common occurence around Abrendese laboratories. They could be test subjects, test materials, results of a successful experiment, results of a failed experiment, something that came out of the drain, something that a lab rat barfed up...really, the list goes on.

Will-o-Wisp (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: This familiar can be soulbound to dark Riders. If their dragon is using dark magic, they gain +1 EXP.

When creating a custom skin, it may appear as any ethereal, skeletal skull or an empty flame.

Deep in the marshes, in the dark of night, these malevolent creatures try to lure their victims into the deep. When they lure the victim close enough to their place of death, they can possess their skeleton to pull them into the mud.

Capripotamos (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: This familiar can be soulbound to ocean Riders. If their dragon is using ocean magic, they gain +1 EXP.

When creating a custom skin, it must appear as a combination of any fish and any cloven-hooved mammal. (The species must not be extinct.)

Bestia placed his goat stables too close to the domain of water spirits, leading to a bit of mischief. This was not his first mistake, nor his last.

Kermode (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: This familiar can be soulbound to earth Riders. If their dragon is using earth magic, they gain +1 EXP.

When creating a custom skin, it may appear as any bear cub.

By all accounts, there's nothing magical about this familiar--unless you're counting that weird, ethereal shimmer. Or maybe the trail of stars it leaves behind with its tail. Or possibly the fact it never appears to age. Other than those things, it's a perfectly normal bear cub.

The Lone Ranger (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: If the Lone Ranger is included in a submission, all dragons in the submission receive the friendly Familiar bonus. He must be depicted with a cowboy hat and mask of some sort. This Familiar does not take up a Familiar slot.

Use this item to create a MYO Familiar slot. Before submitting, make sure to include info on the Rider you are attaching it to.

To find the lost, save the weak, right the wrong, and fly beyond the horizons. That is the duty of the Lone Ranger, who is never truly alone.

Chipmunk (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: This Rider’s dragons may receive +1 EXP for being depicted during Autumn. Examples of Autumn things include:

  • Falling Leaves
  • Leaves Changing Color
  • Animals Hoarding
  • Birds Migrating
  • Plants Ready for Harvest
  • Falling Seeds (Pinecones, Pinwheel Seeds)
  • Chilly Air
  • Participating in Fall Festivals (they do not need to be official, but it should be clear that they celebrate the season)

When creating a custom skin, it must have the pattern and anatomy of a real chipmunk species. However, you can use any colors, including unnatural ones!

Just how much can fit in there, anyways?

Yauhtli (Basic)

Category: Familiars

Effect: Small chance of acquiring 1 AP during any prompt. Adds +1 EXP to all depicted dragons working with the Quetzalcoatl Feathermages. Can only be used by allies of the Quetzalcoatl Feathermages.

When creating a custom skin, you may slightly adjust the size of the avian traits, but it should be recognizable as avian. You may also add as many nudibranch traits as you like, and the coloration may take from any nudibranch species.

Then the ruler of storms flew down and laid low the mortals and heathens; Only her children remained, and their feathers coursed with the magic of gods.
