Stare into the Monster Maker (Finale)

The final batch of critters have been donated by L. Marie:

Furbfur

A hypo-allergenic construct that begins life as a featureless dog made out of clay.  It is molded and changed to suit the owner’s requirements.  This means it can be turned into a hunting dog, lap dog, guard dog, or whatever kind you wish.  One can even designate a specific diet that can work within their budget.  This tends to be done by those getting the animal for children or elderly, but can’t afford much else.  Most people make combinations of breeds and the Furbfur is very popular as a service dog because of its versatility and the ease of training.  These are still sentient creatures and require time to adjust to their bodies and owners.  Sadly, there are those who turn these animals into attack dogs and run fights, so there is a discussion on if they should continue being produced.  To this date, there have been no attacks on humans beyond those where it is proven that the owner ordered the attack or the animal acted in self-defense.

Toadant

This enormous mushroom can be found in the humid forest of Gyrhawk and has replaced many of the trees.  Standing at about the size of an oak, the Toadant is able to move by slowly bending over and running its cap down its body.  By the time the original top touches the ground and the bottom begins to detach, the plant/animal has sprouted new roots and the cap is covering the old.  This process takes a year and nobody is sure why it is done.  It is always east to west until they reach the border river and then they go the other way until touching the mountains.  Unlike other mushrooms, the Toadants have a nervous system that resembles that of a jellyfish.  It does not release spores and reproduces by splitting in half at the point where it becomes a full arch.  Many believe that it is an invasive species that once lived in caves and have mutated under the sunlight.

Miliflees

An elusive creature that has never been seen in the wild, but has appeared in suburbs due to territory encroachment.  Having perfect camouflage for its environment, the Miliflees is left defenseless in among the houses and open yards.  Having flat teeth and short nails, the creature retreats at the first sign of being seen.  It is incredibly fast and can leap fifty feet in the air, its descent controlled by a layer of barely connected skin that acts as a parachute.  It is bipedal and has a ridge of white hair going from its chin to its groin.  The simian face has an elongated nose that it uses to suck up ants and other bugs.  The Miliflees is terrified of dogs and cats, several having run into traffic trying to escape the other animals.  All attempts to see them in their natural environment have failed.

Bobar

A domesticated animal of the Uhtiwa tribe of the Ovether Plains, the Bobar serves several purposes.  It is very large with eight sturdy legs and a narrowed belly, which allows it to act as a living plow.  The legs can extend and allow it to run at a speed of thirty miles an hour, so the Bobar can be used for hunting.  This can be for animals that are taken down by its sharp teeth and pincer tail or roots that it smells with its pig-like snout.  Bobars only sleep for an hour, so the tribe uses them for guards even though their sense of hearing is very weak.  Finally, the thick body gets more tender and nutritious as the animal gets older.  A Bobar that dies of old age or injury is used as the main course of an honorary feast.

    Yay! So glad they were included. They’re all fascinating. The furbfur and bobar descriptions made me laugh out loud. I’d love to have a furbfur. I would certainly eat a bobar after the plowing was done. The toadant is amazing! And the poor miliflees is probably very lonely. 🙂
