An organized list of flygers who have been sent home with donors.

*please do not post on this thread*


NPCs:

Lapis is the leader of his colony, and the first flyger to ever speak to humans. He is outgoing and optimistic, but it took time and sneaky observation for him to decide to make contact with the researchers. After some convincing, his colony now knows that the researchers and donors are there to help their species return to dominance in their territory. While flygers are biologically androgynous, Lapis prefers to use masculine pronouns. 

Opal is the flyger colony's emissary to humankind. As Lapis is the leader of his colony, he cannot remain with the researchers for long. Thus, one flyger from the colony was chosen to remain at the research centre, and make trips back and forth to provide updates to both parties. They are outgoing and kind, always willing to lend their time to helping someone else. With this disposition, Opal was naturally drawn to the researchers, and the people who donate to the conservation efforts, as they have displayed kindness towards the colony that the flygers had previously thought humans incapable of. They are eager to spend time among the kind souls who have brought their species back from near-extinction.

When he was a young cub, Skye referred to himself using feminine pronouns. As he grew older, he began to feel as though that wasn't quite right, and began to use neutral pronouns, like most of their colony, but that didn't seem to fit either. After years of trying to figure out exactly how he identified, he decided to start using masculine pronouns, and is happy with his choice. Knowing more of who he is has since brought Skye a lot of confidence, and after hearing that there are humans who go through similar journeys of self-discovery, he has decided that he would like to know more about these people.

Kina:

Dazzle is appropriately named for their glittery violet markings. Contrary to their flashy appearance, they are quite shy, and were originally very wary of the researchers who would visit the colony's encampment. Over time, they developed a fascination with humans, and were actually the first flyger to request that they be allowed to leave the colony and learn more about them.

Ember is a fierce and confident warrior, and well-respected by the colony, but is also plagued with wanderlust. She loves her colony and will defend them with her life, but has always longed to see what lies beyond their borders. The agreement between her leader and the research team has given her the opportunity to do just that, and she is eager to head to new horizons.

Mercy was custom designed by Kina.

Firecracker is full of spunk and always ready to have a good time. When his friends are feeling down, he does everything he can to lift their spirits. He loves to decorate his den with bright, colourful things and hopes he will find a human companion who shares his love of fun and happiness.

While one might think that Ciel's bright, colourful markings may not make him a good hunter, this is far from the truth. Flygers hunt in groups, like lions and wolves, and those with the brightest fur and feathers serve their colony well as leaders of their hunting parties, as they are easy to follow from a great distance, whether chasing prey through the air or the forest. Now that their numbers have started to increase, more cubs with these bright markings are being trained as hunters when they become old enough to do so, and a lot of weight is off of Ciel's shoulders. Now, he can leave the colony, and join one of the donors.

Melody was one of the colony's best hunters, as her bright colouring made it easy for her party to spot her through the sea of green bamboo. She has gotten a little old now, and has trained many successors. She chose to become part of this program so that she could teach humans about their hunting strategies, and perhaps also learn a bit about humans, too.

Alcarie:

Leon was trained to defend their colony as a warrior, but their timid nature made it difficult for them to feel confident patroling their borders and fending off both larger predators and poachers. After a very unfortunate clash with a group of poachers in which the colony lost one of their own, Leon became existential and afraid of dying, even to protect their colony. Weary and self-conscious of their anxiety, they were at a loss for what to do, until Lapis announced that members of the colony were free to offer their companionship to humans who donate to the revival of their forest. Leon decided after much debate that they would volunteer to take part in this exchange.

Bella grew up feeling self-conscious about her markings-- having half of her body look completely different from the other made her worry that others may perceive her as incohesive and messy. However, after much reassurance and kindness from her friends and family, she has learned to love herself and her very unique appearance. She would love to be able to spread this message to humans, too; that everyone is unique, and individuality is a wonderful thing.

Frost is somewhat of a rare case among the typically very social and extroverted flygers. While rather quiet and content to spend time alone, he does feel lonely from time to time, and would love to join a human who is willing to accept him the way he is, and doesn't mind that he enjoys occasional solitude.

When prey is scarce in the forest, the flygers take to the skies in search of birds. Stormcloud was one of the colony's best sky-hunters, until a vulture attacked them mid-flight to steal their catch. Since that experience, they have been aprehensive about flying at all, and decided that they might better serve their colony by participating in the donation program.

Azul is swift and agile, both on his paws and in flight. There's no-one faster in the colony. Along with having physical speed, he is also prone to having a somewhat short attention span, and seeks stimulation when unoccupied. He isn't overbearing, but definitely needs a human who will be able to keep up with him. Having toys and puzzles around the house to keep him content and occupied is highly recommended if he is to thrive in his new home, as is the company of one or more flygers.

Dancer's glowing mane and feathers are certainly unusual, but this doesn't stop her from being confident and loving herself. She loves to encourage other members of her colony to do the same, and is the first to comfort someone who is feeling self-conscious. Her philosophy is that everyone is one-of-a-kind, even if they don't look completely different from someone else. She looks forward to living among humans, and teaching them to love themselves as well.

It rarely snows near the flygers' habitat, but when it does Snowflake is the first to dive into the fluffy piles and play. There are few things he loves as much as snow and ice, and it's happy coincidence that his markings resemble snowflakes. His favourite things about snow are that every flake is unique and beautiful, and the way is sparkles at night when the moon shines down.

Snowflake was designed by Kina.

Vino's black and white colouring may make him seem elegant and poised, but he is actually a fierce warrior. His dedication to protecting his colony inspires his fellow flygers, and he is often the first to charge into battle. While flygers don't fight frequently, they do patrol their territory and band together to drive out potential threats, and watching humans rise to their defense against those who the flygers had difficulty fighting off on their own has made Vino interested in humans as a whole.

Luna loves nothing more than gazing at the sky on a calm, clear night. The flygers have their own names for constellations, and she knows of every one of them by heart. Even better is flying-- the higher you are in the sky, the closer to the stars you are. On some nights, it feels as though she can reach out and grasp them in her paws. She hopes to meet a human who is just as fascinated with the cosmos as she is.

Iris is best known among the colony for her love of flowers. When she is not on hunting duty, she is often out collecting the brightest and softest petals to decorate her nest. She imagines that there are many more flowers in the world that she has not yet had the chance to see, and would love to join someone who could show them to her.

When they aren't hunting and patrolling their territory, flygers are very playful. One activity they particularly enjoy is referred to as "sky-dancing". It was previously believed that these intricate dances were exclusively mating rituals, but since establishing contact with Lapis and his colony it has been revealed that this is not the case. In sky-dancing, two or more flygers will flutter around each other in synchronized patterns, bouncing through clouds and at times landing to continue the dance on the ground. While this activity is in fact done between mates it is also practiced among friends and family as well, and is an experience that brings members of a colony closer together. Poinsettia loves sky-dancing, and hopes to share its unique beauty with humans upon her adoption.

Poinsettia was designed by Kina.

Pastel is a curious individual, always interested in learning new things. They are most interested in observing other creatures, although their pale colouring standing out among the dense greenery makes it difficult to remain unseen. Pastel would love to join someone who shares their affinity for knowledge, and wouldn't mind answering many questions regarding humans.

Herakles is one of his colony's warriors. His philosophy is that strength is not only physical, or even mental, and the strongest of all are those who treat others kindly and stand up for anyone who can't defend themselves. He strives to be an example and always do what is right, but also knows that mistakes are easily made, and does not expect anyone to be perfect.

Honey is as sweet as her name, always willing to lend a hand to members of her colony who need it. The researchers exhibiting the same behaviour, in spite of previous harm that humans have done to her colony, have garnered her interest. She decided after some consideration to volunteer for this program in order to learn more about the kindness of humans.

The resourcefulness of the flygers in the way of healing has astounded the researchers, as many of their practices resemble human first-aid procedures. They know how to splint broken bones, clean and bind wounds, and have even made use of some plants as medicine. Apollo served his colony as one of their healers, before deciding to join the donation program. He is kind, empathetic, and intelligent, and can actually be credited with the implementation of some of the flygers' more advanced healing practices. 

Berry is a very easy-going flyger. He's not particularly difficult to please, though he is one of those flygers who particularly enjoys eating fruit over their traditional diet of meat. Being calm and content to just go with the flow has made him very easy for other flygers to get along with.

Crystal's solid, opalescent coat is certainly rather unique among flygers as a species. He is admittedly a little prideful, and can sometimes be seen preening his shining feathers and gazing at his reflection in the water. Despite hie pride, he is not concieted, and is always willing to help someone out if he can. 

This rather peaceful flyger is always up before the sun, so he can watch the sunrise from up in the clouds. His pale blue and white coat blends right in with the sky, and his light golden feathers make him appear as though he himself is a beam of sunlight made solid as he flies. He is a very active flyger as well, so it is advised to whoever brings Dawn home that they expect him to be up and about quite early in the day.

Copper was part of the patrol that first discovered the presence of the researchers. They were ready to fight and drive them away, since humans were known to only come to their territory to destroy it or harm them, but Copper urged the rest of the party to wait and observe them instead, because they seemed different from the others. She turned out to be correct, and one of the reasons why contact between the colony and the researchers was established at all.

Samwise:

Blackberry is a mysterious flyger, often seeming distant or aloof in the eyes of their colony. However, this is not truly the case-- they merely enjoy quiet observation, and being around others without needing so much to engage with them. They are not a loner or antisocial by any means, just content to be in the presence of friends.

Tombstone:

A little-known fact about flygers is that if necessary, they can be omnivorous. Similar to species like horses, which are widely considered herbivorous but have been observed eating meat, it was a misconception for some time that flygers were strictly carnivores. However, as their prey grew scarcer, Lapis' colony began to forage for vegetation to keep themselves fed. While a flyger's diet should mainly consist of meat, these flygers don't seem to be lacking in nutrition from their combined diet of meats and plants. In fact, some flygers actually prefer plants over meat, though they will eat both. Grapefruit is one such flyger; they will happily eat meat, but their favourite foods are fruits-- especially citrus. Make sure you have a fridge stocked with all sorts of juicy fruits for them to enjoy!

Vivi's personality is as bright and bold as her crimson coat. She is talkative and cheerful, always ready to make new friends and experience new things. She has a particular talent for storytelling, and the young cubs in the colony loved to listen to her. Vivi is excited to meet her future human and share her stories with them.

Ghoul:
cosmos by smoltair

Cosmos has always been a bit of an outsider, but not in the sense that they have been outcast from the colony at all. Rather, they are simply a little different than the average flyger. Quiet and contemplative, always seeming to have something on their mind, but not necessarily bothered by whatever it is. Cosmos was a healer before leaving the colony to participate in the donation program, and is quite the good listener despite often seeming spaced out.

coco by smoltair

Contrary to what is known for many animals, chocolate is not poisonous to flygers. This was discovered when this particularly sneaky flyger stole a chocolate bar from a researcher and did not show signs of sickness after eating it. It was known that flygers enjoy sweeter foods like fruits already, but no one suspected that they would be able to safely consume chocolate given how poisonous it is to other mammals. Coco was the first to discover how tasty chocolate is, and hopes that whoever adopts them will allow them to have some from time to time.

Coco was designed by Kina.

sprinkle by smoltair

Sprinkle's colourful spots are an interesting variation from the typical striped patterning that flygers have. They look like someone has shaken a cup of rainbow sprinkles all over them, which is likely how they got their name. Coincidentally, Sprinkle has developed a fascination with cooking and baking since arriving at the research centre, and hopes to be chosen by someone who can teach them more about it.

StarFire01:
shamrock by smoltair
Shamrock's green coat blends easily into the dense bamboo, making him an effective scout for flyger hunting parties and patrols. His movements are virtually silent; even the flap of his wings produces almost no noise. While certainly one of their best, he is not the only member of his colony skilled in this way, so his absence would not cause them any harm. After some debate, he decided to volunteer for the donor incentive program.
