Perline

Looks

Visual Description

A beautiful white owl.

Lifestyle

After enough reassurance from friends visiting his perch, Perline evolves into a Perline. He comes to realize that his need for freedom did not conflict with theirs at all; in fact, he now knows that completely free creatures can coexist easily without keeping each other back. If you're already completely free in your actions and desires, other needs seem trivial and sharing the last piece of pie or a favorite sleeping space comes natural.

Perline's flight practice, started when he was still a Bubo, seems to reach new heights. He is an extraordinarily graceful flyer and can even sleep while aloft. He simply spreads his wings, closes his eyes and lets the wind carry him. It's an amazing feat that few other creatures can rival, though strangely enough, even the clumsiest flyer can do it when Perline accompanies them; caretakers have speculated that there is a mystical quality about a Perline's flying skills that transfers to pets around him.

What certainly transfers to creatures around him is Perline's sense of freedom. With his help, they are able to discover what they truly want in their life. After that, it's a matter of going after it - being free is living life like you want to. Against all expectations, learning what they really want takes most creatures much longer than getting it after they figure it out. With Perline's help, both can be accomplished though.

Nivis

Looks

Visual Description

A snowy white bird.

Lifestyle

As Nivis gets better at both flying and listening to others, he evolves into a Nivis. His behavior now moves to the opposite end of the spectrum and he becomes extremely sensitive to the freedom of others. He tiptoes around them, apologizing for any imagined restriction he may have posed and agreeing with anything other pets propose. Older creatures usually keep an eye out on Nivis, carefully coaxing him to voice his own needs and desires so they don't remain hidden and unfulfilled.

The only time when Nivis stops worrying about inhibiting others is when he sits on a cedar perch. This is usually the same perch he hovered around as an egg, but some caretakers prefer to provide their Nivis with a new branch at this stage of his life. No one knows if it’s the familiarity of the branch or some property of the cedar that gives Nivis strength, but he lets down his guard and is simply himself, no longer fretting about accidentally restraining others. Any misconceptions he may have had about inhibiting others are proven wrong here, since pets specifically come to interact with Nivis while he is on his perch - they care for him and want him to be mindful of his own needs too, after all.

Bubo

Looks

Visual Description

A silver-grey little chicklet.

Lifestyle

After hatching, Bubo is very affectionate, but also very demanding. He insists on doing things his own way, heeding no advice or requests from others. On the occasions where Bubo's desires conflict with those of others, he will continue to do what he wants rather than looking for a compromise. Bubo means nothing bad with this; he simply insists on exercising his freedom to the fullest and lacks the social skills to be mindful of others as he does so. Fortunately, Bubo has a very cuddly disposition and most other pets are willing to forgive his rogue tendencies.

The majority of Bubo's time is spent practicing his "flying". That's to say: a series of hops accompanied by a great deal of wing flapping, during which time Bubo manages to stay aloft slightly longer than he would have without the wing flapping. Caretakers are divided as to whether or not it actually qualifies as flying. Regardless of what his caretaker may think though, Bubo insists he's flying and keeps practicing to perfect it. His dedication quickly draws the attention of other winged pets, who are happy to give him tips and advice. Oddly enough, this seems to be the only instance where Bubo takes advice from others rather than figuring things out on his own.

Egg

Looks


Visual Description

A beautiful white winged egg.

Lifestyle

Perline eggs can only be found in a particular cluster of clouds. There, the eggs fly and float, hidden between the white of their surroundings. Once a year, these clouds pass particularly close to the mountains and a group of caretakers called the Cloud Gatherers, tasked with this specifically, go into the clouds to gather the eggs. To this end, they specialize in raising winged creatures who can carry them into the clouds and assist them in the gathering. They gather only those eggs who are ready to bond with a caretaker and leave the other eggs for later years.

After the gathering, the eggs are brought to popular hubs all over Esmelda, where they are quickly paired with their perfect caretaker. Perline eggs continue to fly, even after they've been gathered from the clouds, but they seem to like the smell of cedar wood and will hover around any cedar wood their caretaker offers as a perch, rather than flying off to greater heights. A cedar tree works just as well, but something small like cedar incense alone doesn't seem to have the desired effect. As such, most caretakers make sure to construct a sitting (or at least, hovering) perch for their Perline eggs.
