Baby Stage Notes

This baby creature has stark white skin that's very squishy and delicate. Despite its eyes appearing to be clouded over, it seems to see just fine, and is quite skittish.

Juvenile Stage Notes

Black markings and a set of horns began gradually growing as the creature's legs became more steady. It will idly blow out shadowy clouds. Whenever it's frightened, it'll spew out a dark fog thick enough to almost completely conceal its presence. The clouds have an interesting property in that it's quite difficult to force them to dissipate even with ample amounts of airflow, but after some time they will eventually fade away on their own. It's certainly much less skittish as a juvenile, but prefers avoiding other creatures. It will, however, carefully observe them from a safe distance with its unblinking gaze.

Adult Stage Notes

Shadowspewers are quiet, highly territorial creatures. Getting too close to one in the wild—whether aware of its presence or not—is a sure way to get caught in a thick, shadowy fog. Males tend to be more skittish, but will still readily attack if they feel threatened. While the tendrilous horns are smaller on females, the claws are larger, and they are much less yielding to anything they perceive as an intruder. Their diet is largely comprised of bugs and tubers that they dig out of the ground themselves, but they will seek out different sources of food if they can't find enough of their usual fare. The skin on individuals with more colourful Chromas reflect light rather atypically, despite their typically drab hue.

Their likeness is commonly seen in books found within the laboratory. These depictions seem to be part of what appears to be a large research effort, though it is anyone's guess what exactly said research was and for what purpose it was being done. Wild Shadowspewers seem quite at home within the walls of the laboratory, and a similar behaviour can be observed in those raised in captivity; they much prefer to find their own small, relatively enclosed space that they call home.
