Acorin

Written by Pookas Kreations

The Acorin is a tiny Fae race that resembles a mix of acorns, leaves, sticks, bark, and stones. When still they look like liter on the floor of the forest. They upkeep the forest to keep it healthy, at one with the forest and its guardians.

 

Although small, they have an innate grace and agility that allows them to be swift and elusive in their forested environment. Their coloring range from brown to vibrant green to allow them to match the coloring of their home. 

 

Most of aCorin race on Aquatica live on Sylvania, but others have migrated to Avalonia and a few other areas that are close to the Fae Wild. Areas with low magic will rarely have Acorin living their and if the magic is corrupted they will often be as well.

Basic Information

Anatomy

In some ways they look like tiny Twigling or Tree-Kin. But they are more closely related to Kodama, forest spirits that live in healthy forests.

Genetics and Reproduction

Acorin have a very short lifespan and are budded from the Acorin mother tree at need. One of her acorns falls and turns into one of them. If one dies there is a chance for their body to be absorbed into the ground and a new one to grow from their "seed" into a week to a month.

Growth Rate & Stages

They become an adult in hours, and only lives for a few months to a few years.

Ecology and Habitats

The population and health of the Acorin show the health of the forest that they live.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Acorin absorbs the magical air that the fae trees exude. Some also drink water or eat berries from the area but all is needed is breathing.

Additional Information

Social Structure

They are extensions of their Mother Oak which are extensions of the World Tree Gaia.

Domestication

If taken from their Forest they will die, although if a cutting of the mother oak and some of the dirt for planting it is harvested for potting it are kept around the correct type of magic might enable it to survive.

Facial characteristics

Their faces are not very expressive since they have woody, bark-like skin. Their eyes shimmer with an otherworldly glow, reflecting their connection to the The Fae Wild from whence they came.
