"If you don't have a taum now, you're missing out!"
- That one person with that one name
Abilities: Glide/free fall. Their feather and fur mix well together to give them ability to jump and float for a while. Its not flying, but falling with style. Because of their feathers and fur, its made special so when in the air or moving they are completely silent. These are a very quiet species, talking isn’t required for the most part.
Habitat: tree’s and forests are their favorites, some hang out in the sunniest of places, others love darkest. Some even decided to walk the stars and clouds. They are natural hermits, they will find somewhere to live where no one has ever thought of.
Prey: they can eat nearly everything, or anything that its able to get its grubby paws on. This causes some taums to eat something they aren’t supposed to. They don’t like dirt/stone/metal. But if they want to scare you they’ll crunch it down in front of you to prove a point.
Beak: The beak is yes useful, the taum can use it to speak and eat smaller things. When using this beak it’s meant to be a friendly gesture, or trying to look nice before dinner begins. Either or, the voice that comes out of this mouth is lighter in tune, and very soft. Almost like silk to someone’s skin.
Bear mouth: Under the face or chin of the taum is the much more dangerous mouth. This mouth has a large radius and can stretch pretty big. Just as big as a sharks, almost. If the taum speaks through this it’s a much more terrible and rumbling voice. Used when anger is involved or it has no respect for you.
Respect: All taums have respect. They will respect someone’s wishes and ideals. Just as long as you show respect back. It’s the bone and soul of these creatures. Prove yourself before them and they will give you that respect you deserve. Prove that you’re not someone meant to be there, someone who doesn’t understand give and take, and someone who is full of themselves. You’re as good as dead depending on what kind of taum you meet. They have no time to deal with you.
Interacting with other species: Taums are pretty good on dealing with others, especially if raised with them or gown to know them. Birdfolks (made by keldel) are very fun to be with for them. They enjoy rough housing and playing around. Though if you want to do some interesting things like magic and robots they wouldn’t mind helping out one bit.
